Creating Newsworthy Stories & Reaching People Via Media
Smart publicity stunts can be a great high-visibility approach to regular advertising approaches. By creating an interesting and intriguing story, people will happily share the news. So what makes a story newsworthy?
Here are some ideas for creating a newsworthy event:
- Make people laugh
- Take a stand for a great cause or charity (heartwarming)
- Play off another current news story
If you can create a funny, sharable offer that gets shared more than it is redeemed
