SXSW 2018 is over…and, with it, the excitement, media coverage, long lines, non-stop networking and sleep deprivation that make this gathering the preeminent technological exposition in the world. But, as the world moves on, how do you sustain – and even accelerate –momentum beyond the attention you were clever enough to score last month?
Beyond the obviously newsworthy product launches or funding round announcements, you probably have lots of stories to sitting right under you nose, waiting to be told throughout the year.
A noteworthy hire, a major customer win, a marketing or sales milestone, a philanthropic partnership…each of these have real news value. The trick is to identify the media gatekeepers who are most likely to be interested in each story and to differentiate your “pitch” from the scores of others that these gatekeepers receive on a daily basis.
Another effective strategy to sustain your company’s editorial momentum is to get in front of issues that are of particular importance to your stakeholders. How about writing a bylined article with a compelling point of view for an influential trade publication or website? Alternatively, offer journalists access to company spokespeople who has a distinctive perspective on an emerging issue within your industry.
