How does SOURCES work?

SOURCES helps members get publicity and media coverage.

Journalists and the news media have been using SOURCES for more than 35 years to find experts and spokespersons. They love SOURCES because it provides them with ‘one-stop shopping’. Instead of having to search through thousands of hits on search engines to find contacts to interview, they can go to one place to find sources for their stories and shows. SOURCES is also a great way to reach the public because Sources.com is a highly ranked website recording one million page views a month.

Associations use SOURCES to get media coverage for their issues and views.

Authors use SOURCES to promote their books and to establish themselves as author-experts.

Speakers use SOURCES to raise their profile and position themselves in the speakers market.

Businesses and professionals use SOURCES to optimize their online marketing efforts with keywords that correspond to the search terms people use to find their services or products.

Now you can help your associates reap the benefits of SOURCES membership, including:

  • A full media profile on our highly ranked website SOURCES.COM.
