Publicity 101 for Colleges

Q:  What′s the best way for a college to get continuing media attention?
A:  By being found in SOURCES, the Media′s Guide to Experts and Spokespersons

Where do the media find experts and sources?

At SOURCES.COM — the portal for journalists, reporters, and editors.

The SOURCES directory (online and print) has been a staple of newsrooms and freelance journalists′ desks for decades. SOURCES is the place journalists go to find the experts and spokespersons they need for their stories. At SOURCES.COM they also get news releases as they appear, the Sources Calendar, top news stories from around the world, and SOURCES′ INTELLIGENT SEARCH technology.

How can this help your college?

A college′s public reputation is its key asset in the competition for students, funding, and business and community partnerships.

Positive media coverage is the most effective and credible form of public relations there is. Unlike paid advertising and other forms of marketing, media coverage is earned and grows directly out of a college′s knowledge and expertise. It spotlights your successes and establishes your brand.

Media attention is also commonly the most cost-effective form of marketing, because a single news story or TV spot about you can reach tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people. This includes governments, business and community leaders, parents, students and alumni.

When you are in SOURCES, you ensure that the media will find you when they do stories about your areas of expertise.
