Contact press release sources

Contact press release sourcesYet another sales lead generation strategy that I employ is to contact press release authors. In addition to technical articles, you should also feverishly track press releases of your competitors, customers, and prospects. Whenever something new hits the wire where your product/service could be used, shamelessly contact the source of the release. An opening phone statement could be something simple like this:

Hi Jane, I saw your press release announcing your expansion plans in Houston and was hoping to talk with you for three minutes about your networking needs. [don’t leave time for a response here] I promise that this won’t be a hard sales pitch and at any time during the discussion you are free to tell me that it doesn’t sound like a good fit and I won’t bother you again. Our widgets have been used in similar plants to increase network speed by 60% and I just want to see if we can offer you that same type of value.

This should buy you at least the initial three minutes – keep to that three minutes and ask for permission to talk longer if you need to.

Hey would you mind letting me knopw which web host you’re utilizing?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a
lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple
ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.

I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply
placing the other person’s blog link on your page at appropriate place and other
person will also do similar for you.

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum
it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to
the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie
blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
