I'm gearing up to announce that my start-up is officially open for business on November 12th. I've made contact several large mass media marketing companies such as macromedia, businesswire and so on.
What I need from a PR consultant is two things.
1) Help me decide on the best marketing firm that will get my press release/news the most exposure for around $300.
2) Help me write a press release that is more of a story than just facts and figures.
My goal is to get picked up by one of the major media portals such as Yahoo! If you think you can help me accomplish the above, then I'm looking for you.
The company I am to market is called ProudlyNOTmadeinChina.org or PNMIC.org. It's an online service dedicated to finding and listing NON China made products while promoting NON China manufacturers.
There's A LOT of people out there who don't want to buy made in China for whatever reason, but they're sick and tired of having to flip the box/label to find out where the product is made.
Secondly, these same consumers prefer to buy made in USA. Currently, we are setting up a payment system that will allow U.S. manufacturers to sell directly to American consumers!
So I feel if PNMIC is properly marketed, it can do wonders.
Looking forward to looking over all the great applicants who submit.
