Sources is pleased to announce the publication of
the Spring 2006 issue of The Sources HotLink, the
newsletter about media relations. HotLink
is a free newsletter published by Sources, the directory
for the news media, and is also available at www.hotlink.ca.
This January, we introduced another free service for Sources
clients, to help you publicize your events to the media. The
Sources Calendar is an online calendar
which enables you to bring your public meetings, conferences, festivals,
shows and other events to the attention of editors, producers, and
journalists. The Sources Calendar is quickly proving to be
very popular, with hundreds of events already posted. Users have
praised the design of the Sources Calendar which, among other
things, allows events to be filtered by location, date, and subject
matter the same attention to usefulness and informational
quality that marks Sources itself.
Because you are listed in Sources, you can post your
events in the Sources Calendar for FREE.
Just go to the Sources Web site - www.sources.com
- click on Sources Calendar on the main menu, then click
on Add an Event. You will be prompted for your username and
password. These were sent to you earlier this year: if you've misplaced
yours, just give us a call at 416-964-7799.
Don't forget that being listed in Sources also enables
you to post news releases - free - on the Sources
Web site. This is another excellent way to bring your accomplishments,
statements, and point of view on current issues to the attention
of the media. Submit your release directly by E-mail, or, for more
information about setting up and distributing your release, go to
and click on Disseminating
Your News Releases.
New: Sources Media Training!
We are very pleased to announce that Sources has
entered into a strategic partnership with Allan Bonner Communications
Inc., North America's #1 media trainers.
Sources clients can now have the same high-quality
media preparation used by eight heads of government, three dozen
cabinet ministers, approximately 4,000 federal and provincial officials,
and blue chip corporations on five continents.
You will remember the course leaders from The National News,
Hourglass, Metro Morning, Ontario Morning,
provincial legislatures, Morningside and Canada's largest
major daily newspapers. These are exactly the assignment editors,
anchors and writers you want to reach. Now, Sources
ensures they work for you.
When you sign up, you will immediately receive the critically acclaimed
book Media Relations, by course leader Dr.
Allan Bonner, a workbook and pocket guide to get
you started. In the training session you'll be interviewed in realistic
simulations on the phone and in person. You will receive a tape
of your performance for private review.
The first two courses are in Toronto on May 5 and June 2. Other
courses will follow throughout the year. We are also able to offer
customized courses at your own location and across the country.
