Media relations for politicians

A service for Parliamentarians, Legislators, and Municipal Councillors

At Sources, we know that political representatives, public officials, and community leaders have unique media relations needs.

Sources has been helping public speakers, professionals, elected representatives, authors, organizations, governments, and businesses get publicity and media attention for more than 40 years. We help our clients to get positive publicity by spotlighting their knowledge and accomplishments and by building their profile as expert sources.

The Sources service, a suite of powerful public relations tools costing as little as $349 a year, allows you to send out an unlimited number of news releases, and simultaneously to be included in the Sources directory, the news source used by thousands of journalists and newsmedia organizations.

In other words, for less than the price of sending out a single news release through an investor-oriented newswire service, you can distribute as many releases as you need through Sources. Your releases appear on our highly rated website, SOURCES.COM, go out to the media and on the Internet via RSS feed, and are indexed by all search engines and by news aggregator/RSS sites.

And that’s only one benefit of being in Sources.

Sources is a media service that connects journalists, editors, writers, producers and researchers with the sources they need for their work. Being included in Sources positions you as a media source willing to be called and quoted, and puts you in line to receive more media calls and more media coverage.

The benefits you receive as a Sources member also include your profile in the Sources directory of expert contacts and media spokespersons, which spotlights organizations, institutions, government agencies, companies, and individuals who want to share their expertise and points of view with the media. The Sources directory is used by thousands of reporters and researchers who need to find quotable sources and reliable information for their news stories or research. The SOURCES.COM media portal receives more than 600,000 page views every month.

And distributing your news releases through Sources ensures that your releases reach the media as well as your constituents and members of the general public who use Internet newsfeeds or search engines like Google to track the issues they are concerned about.
