EconomyPR.com Launches Press Release Writing Service for Entrepreneurs

Streamlined and Affordable; Do-It-Yourself PR for Amazon Sellers, Startups and Crowd-Funders

Cleveland, Ohio, June 26, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — EconomyPR.com today announced the launch of its affordable, streamlined “do-it-yourself” public relations services for entrepreneurs, Amazon Sellers and crowd-funders today. Bridging the gap between random “gig economy” freelancers and premium agencies, EconomyPR.com has demonstrated in beta that it can deliver professionally-written press releases, blogs and media pitches at a fraction of the fees charged by agencies and publicists. The company’s do-it-yourself model enables clients who might not have even considered PR to conduct effective media campaigns.

“It’s time for the PR business to catch up with changes in the news industry as well as shifts in the way that creative work gets done,” said Hugh Taylor, the CEO and founder of EconomyPR.com. “Talented freelancers are available to work economically by the project. Entrepreneurial clients are taking media relations into their own hands. Journalists and bloggers are reachable directly and publishing online. The old barriers between a PR client and the media are disappearing. We’re leading the way in disrupting a field that’s ripe for change.”

Taylor, who has managed public relations in the Fortune 500 as well as for several venture-backed startups, founded EconomyPR.com after observing a disconnect in the modern public relations market. While many traditional PR firms require monthly retainers that can reach tens of thousands of dollars, the actual writing of a press release — which is all that some clients want — could be performed by freelancers for well under one hundred dollars. The proliferation of gig economy freelance sites such as Fiverr and PeoplePerHour has given public relations customers access to thousands of low-cost writing resources. However, quality and delivery can be unpredictable on these sites.

The challenge was to create an end product that met the client’s expectations while preserving the value of the gig economy. EconomyPR.com performs an essential editorial function, marshaling the resources of a skilled, curated freelancer base to enable low-cost press release writing for clients while enforcing professional standards for quality and message impact. The company also helps clients repurpose their press releases, adapting them into articles, blog posts and media pitch emails. In pre-launch beta, EconomyPR.com has helped dozens of entrepreneurs get their news picked up in the media.

EconomyPR.com’s basic offering is a 300 to 400 word press release for $25. Standard delivery is three business days. Extra charges apply for rush services and add-ons, such as blog post adaption and email pitches.

Mediaman Howard Needle Celebrates 2-Year Anniversary Of Alternative Solutions Media – A Unique Marketing Company That Brings Recovery Programs And People Suffering From Addiction Together

In June of 2011, media executive Howard Needle launched a company specifically focused on promoting rehabilitation and recovery to the addicted community. He realized that many people suffering from addiction are unwilling to check themselves into a facility, and the idea of self treatment with online support would be appealing to them. His company, Alternative Media Solutions, was founded on the premise that people suffering from addiction will respond to informative TV commercials and radio campaigns, and then visit an online site that offers support.

Tips and guidance on self-healing are provided on this site but also, descriptions of recovery programs and facilities—with video—can be viewed. What this achieves is that many people looking to self treat end up contacting a recovery facility or program and finding a much more effective treatment process.

“I am very proud of my company,” states founder and president, Howard Needle. “I knew there had to be a way to bring those who are addicted together with those who can really help them. Utilizing volume buying power and my relationships with media companies, I am able to provide recovery businesses with a complete media package at a significant discount, allowing them to reach more patients and help more people than they ever could have without the media campaign. I’ve reached my two year anniversary and I am here to stay.”

Needle has working relationships with media experts in every state,  and so is able to service clients from around the country. Top quality videos that highlight the recovery facilities are also placed online for potential patients to watch. Needle and his team serve clients of various sizes and budgets. Quotes for media campaigns are provided at no charge, and can be localized, regional or national.

Are you cut out to PR your own business asks Best PR Selector?

You don’t need the big personality of Richard Branson or Hilary Devey for your business to make a big splash in the media.

“A larger than life persona is not a good predictor of whether a business owner can successfully do their own PR,” says Phil Turtle, founder of BestPRSelector.com

Instead, the public relations expert has identified three shared characteristics of entrepreneurs who have effectively driven their own publicity machines.

Don’t get too close to your business
“Firstly,” says Turtle, who launched online PR needs assessment tool Best PR Selector in mid-2012, “they have the ability to take a step back from their business and see it from an outsider’s perspective”.

This, he explains, can be harder than it seems. “We’re all familiar with the expressions ‘getting too close to your work’ and ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’”, he explains. “Well both aptly describe the unfortunate position many business owners find themselves in.

“When you’re up close and personal with your business 24/7, it becomes very hard to be objective about it,” he says.

According to Turtle, common traps company owners fall into include using industry jargon, assuming outsiders have lots of prior knowledge, being unrealistic about how important their business is and not being focussed enough on creating and marketing tangible differences with competitor companies.

“It’s no surprise that the business owner who will be the most successful at getting publicity is the one who can see their company through fresh and objective eyes each day,” says Turtle. “This is quite a rare skill.”

Time management
The second most important skill that enables business owners to do their own PR is time management, says Turtle.

Public relations is both time consuming and time sensitive. To ensure you don’t miss killer opportunities to get yourself in front of the right media, you have to strike whilst the iron is hot,” he says.

“If this means shelving everything else in your diary for that morning to concentrate on a PR opportunity, good owner/PRs have the ability to put everything else on hold – or delegate it – and prioritise that golden opportunity.”

Avid media consumers
The final predictor of an entrepreneur who will make an excellent home-grown PR is that they will be an avid – and analytical – consumer of their target media.

“People who do their own PR well understand what makes a great story in their industry. They are not just regular readers of the key industry media but they are also critical readers,” says Turtle.

“They can spot other PR stories and they have ideas about how to create their own.”

Phil adds that good self-publicists understand what makes a news story, a feature, a comment piece, a photo story, a great reader offer.

“Without this appreciation, you’re feeling around in the dark and wasting a journalist’s time,” he says.

“A good PR – whether a professional or small-business person – will know the media they are trying to get coverage in like the back of their hand. Read it, break it down and understand the editor’s requirements. A big personality is no excuse for not having done your background research,” he concludes.

One fantastic song with the very familiar voice of Rhiana singing in chorus. Jay Z doing a great job as usual and the upcoming artist Rick Ross who has been everywhere lately.

3.Wiz Khalifa – G.F.U (The Motto Remix) Ft. Juicy J & Berner

This is one of the hottest song in March 2012, too much win for a song from Wiz Khalifa

The Co-operative Magazine releases results of latest online poll

The Co-operative Magazine has revealed the result of its latest web-based poll, which asked readers ‘how much of your weekly shop goes in the bin?’

Of those magazine readers who took part in the survey, 61 per cent stated that less than 10 per cent of products from their weekly food shop go in the bin. This is contrary to the national findings, which suggest that the majority of households in the UK waste around a quarter (25 per cent) of their food each week.

“These results suggest that our readers are shrewder and less wasteful than the national average,” said Jeanette Franks, editor of the magazine.

“With tips on how to cut your weekly shopping bill and features on how to make delicious meals using leftovers, our readers have the information they need to ensure that they only buy what they need and they therefore end up using the majority of it each week. We encourage people to shop more frequently and only buy the items they need, rather than doing a big weekly shop which inevitably leads to wasted food and money,” Franks added.

Other related articles and features in The Co-operative Magazine include: A Quick Guide to Recycling in the Home, and Waste Not Want Not, both in the ethical living section, as well as low-fat meal ideas and tips for how to keep the kids health and happy.

The online magazine aims to be interesting and informative, as well as to bring daily news on a wide variety of subjects, from fairtrade and the recent E-Coli outbreak, to the state of the housing market and the latest news in travel and leisure. It also gives readers the chance to browse a huge variety of features and guides and to leave their own tips and comments for fellow readers to benefit from. The online magazine is interactive and many people have already made reading it a part of their daily routine.

Munite makes it easy for aspiring musicians to kick- start their music career. Artists can promote their work to eager fans and labels who are continuously searching for great new music.

With the Build a Band™ feature, Munite makes it easy to build your own band from a list of instrument-specific musicians in your area. Just a few clicks and members are in touch with potential bandmates. Another few clicks and members can be booking time with a music instructor or a new student. If that student needs to buy a guitar, it can be found in the classified ad section of the site. Jam sessions can be found and arranged through Munite as well.

Munite also provides musicians a unique and creative component for music collaboration, Mumiix™. Mumiix™ is an open access tool to create, mix, and share music in ways that were previously unimaginable. Mumiix™ makes it possible for beatboxers from Brooklyn to collaborate with classical guitarists from Spain. Mumiix™ provides the tools to make it happen online, without the limitations of geographical boundaries. Anyone can take part in a Mumiix™ project by simply inviting others or requesting invitations to join other members’ Mumiix™ projects. Even labels, managers, and producers can be a part of the virtual collaboration so that everyone works together to get the end result off the ground, on the airwaves, and onto the stage.

The Co-operative Urges Consumers to Join The Revolution

The Co-operative today (7 March) launched a major new communications programme calling upon consumers to “join the revolution” and help secure a more balanced and sustainable future for the UK.

The call to “join the revolution” will be underpinned by a high profile TV, press and social media campaign that will provide guidance on how people can set up their own co-operative businesses, fund community projects, campaign for change or simply purchase ethical products and services, such as Fairtrade products and ethical investments.

The media campaign will showcase everyday people who, with help from The Co-operative, are instigating real change – everything from community owned wind-turbines to fan-owned football clubs, from urban beekeeping to young film-maker co-operatives.

Peter Marks, Group Chief Executive of The Co-operative said: “Until the 1980s people understood the benefits of mutual ownership, but then the UK’s family silver was sold-off cheaply in a wave of demutualisation that weakened the influence that ordinary consumers could have on our economy.

“We are beginning to see momentum again at grassroots level, where the Co-operative Enterprise Hub is helping new co-operative businesses set up at a rate of more than one a day, but the opportunity is much bigger than that. Co-operatives alone are not a panacea, but sitting alongside other business and service models, they can help address the unprecedented social, economic and environmental challenges facing the country”.

The TV commercial, which airs for the first time on Monday 7 March, tells how the Rochdale Pioneers, who established the first successful retail co-operative in 1844, started a revolution which is still going strong. The Co-operative now has more than 5,000 stores across the UK and there are almost a billion co-operative members worldwide.

Today, The Co-operative is itself enjoying a strong economic renaissance, which has seen it double revenues, double profits and double membership over the past three years.

The campaign supports the Group’s recently launched Ethical Plan, which sets out a number of revolutionary goals that aim to cement its reputation as the most socially responsible business in the UK.

The pledges in the Ethical Plan include:
• Growing membership from 6m to 20m by 2020, with the aim of making every customer a co-owner.
• The most radical Fairtrade conversion programme ever undertaken.
• £11m to support co-operative growth, and the launch of a £20m international Co-operative Development Loan Fund.
• Doubling financial support for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, from £400m to £1bn by 2013.
• The world’s first ethically-screened general insurance products, which will support over two million policies.
