Where do the media find their Sources?
SOURCES.COM is the Internet portal for journalists, reporters, editors, and researchers. The Sources directory has been a staple of newsrooms and freelance journalists’ desks for decades. SOURCES is the place journalists go to find the experts and spokespersons they need for their stories.
At SOURCES.COM they also get
news releases as they appear, newsworthy events in the
Sources Calendar, top news stories from around the world, and the power of the SOURCES INTELLIGENT SEARCH system.
How can Sources help you get media coverage?
When you are in Sources, you ensure that the media will find you when they do stories about your areas of expertise.
Positive media coverage is the most credible form of publicity there is. Unlike paid advertising and other forms of marketing, media coverage is earned and grows directly out of what you do and what you know. It spotlights your successes and establishes your brand.
Media coverage is the most cost-effective form of marketing, because a single news story or TV spot about you can reach tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people.
