Send a separate email with article and link.

should you use an online search or clipping service
Should You Use An Online Search Or Clipping Service?
  • You might consider a service if your organization receives regular national or trade exposure. Otherwise, learn your local, regional, and specialty media websites (remember Spanish, when available) and how to navigate within each.
  • Look beyond a headline or sound bite to see if your organization or its officials are noted or quoted further in. Once you get the hang of things, you’ll find that “surfing the news” for relevant stuff is as easy as finding your favorite tunes on a jukebox.
what else
What Else?
  • Have fun sharing the news.

You won’t be able to cover everything – every road maintenance project, house fire, police action, appearance or comment by someone, etc.

In many of those cases, it is not necessary news for your audience.

You’ll learn to know what makes your service valuable.

However, if someone requests coverage of something,

then include it the next day and thereafter, as appropriate.
