Building recognition within your community is an essential tool for gathering support for local organization and grassroots movements. Our upcoming Grassroots Media Training webinar explores how to create relationships with media outlets and how to take advantage of these platforms for building campaigns.
Local media is an extremely efficient way to build recognition and support within your community. Creating strong relationships with local reporters, knowing how to pitch stories to newspapers and blogs, and earned media such as letters to the editor, are just some of the ways that you can interact with local media outlets to promote your campaign.
This webinar discussion will provide in-depth answers to questions about how to use media to promote your campaign, give you proper tools to improve your recognition within your community, and teach you how to get a start on creating relationships with local media outlets.
