Topic: “How To Work With The Media Effectively And Economically”

Our own Bainbridge Island Chamber Of Commerce director, Kevin Dwyer, will speak on press releases, advertising with them, when & where, to use them amongst other valuable tips.

What is a press release and why should I use one?
A press release is pseudo-news story, written in third person, that seeks to demonstrate to an editor or reporter the newsworthiness of a particular person, event, service or product.

 How is a press release used?
Press releases are often sent alone, by e-mail, fax or even snail mail. They can also be part of a full press kit, or may be accompanied by a sales pitch letter.


What is the proper press release format?
You will just have to come to the BBC meeting and find out!

So, don’t miss out on your morning cup of BBC! ( Now meeting at the  Local Harvest restaurant )
