NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the end-of-year gift-giving season upon us, now is the time for PR professionals to identify coverage opportunities for their products during the Holiday Gift Guide season. Having a product featured in a guide is the perfect way to garner awareness during a time when consumer spending is at its highest. However, with resources already stretched thin many business owners steer clear of tackling these types of campaigns. Here's some advice that will ease you into this initiative and help you to get featured in the first place:
- Know when to pitch. Print and online publications may have different deadlines and familiarizing yourself to these can help uncover further opportunity.
- Think outside of the box and toss out traditional thinking. Why not consider pitching a non-traditional holiday that's highly targeted to your offer?
- Suggest a round-up. Featured coverage can be limited due to space constraints, so placing your product as one of many suggested items may be a solution.
