How To Launch A New Product Successfully Through Press Coverage

Jun 2, 2008
Whenever you are trying to launch a new product or service, one of the most popular way to get the word out is by launching a press coverage. So what is press coverage, and how is it going to help you launch a new product? Well first of all, press coverage online is when different websites talk or "cover" the item or product that you are selling. This is a great way to get the word out there about the product that you are marketing. Whenever you have a new product, the hardest part about trying to market it, is getting people to notice it. The best way to get people to notice it is to have a lot of people talking about it.

So how do you get press coverage? How do you get people and websites talking about your new product? This is done by going out there and telling people about your product. The more people that you are going to tell, the more people will know about your product, and it will snowball from there.

To achieve that you may send an invitation to all the main media contacts, and their editors. You may also send an online press release. Your online press release will increase your visibility all over the web.

So pretty much, say you tell a website about your new product. That website likes your idea, and it runs a little section on your product, or a little article on it, on their website. In that article, they may even paste your link. Well the people that visit that site are going to see that press coverage and will go to visit your site. Of course, there are a few things that you have to keep in mind.

First, you can not try and get press coverage on just any old site, it needs to be related to your site to have any effect. If you are trying to sell rug cleaner to someone that has hardwood floors, it just does not make any sense. So first things first, find out what your niche market is. In other words, find out who you are trying to market your product to. Then find websites that they are more likely to go to. Then you can try and set up some press coverage on your new product at that site.

Remember there is no limit to the number of places that you can have press coverage from. So after you get one or two sites to cover you, do not stop. Keep going! Soon you will have half the Internet talking about your product, and your sales are going to go through the roof. That is what people want. Press coverage makes Internet marketing just that much easier.

Press coverage isn't guaranteed. If you need immediate and guaranteed results, buy some PPC Ads. But journalists are always searching for good stories and your new product might just be the right thing they are looking for.

To Your Success!
