Welcome back to another Ask Me Anything, a weekly series where we talk to our friends, our viewers, and our community about all of their pressing needs, questions, wants, and desires.
Let’s take a look at the mailbag to see which questions are burning this week:
Do any of you have any good examples of media pages on websites that you like? Or any management tools that make it easy to keep updated?
Media Page Management Tools
Pitchengine is the easiest tool around to create a beautiful media page for websites that you don’t control. For the sites that have a webmaster or if you’re on the agency side, it’s not always easy to get pages created quickly—or even to have updates made as quickly as when you do them yourself.
It’s really easy to create the media page on your own—and be ready for the launch or the announcement or even a crisis with the push of a couple of buttons.
Another tool you should have in your toolbox is CoverageBook. That tool won’t create media pages, like Pitchengine does, but it does create beautiful reports that you can use on the media page.
We just hosted a TV and radio virtual media tour that had more than 350 airings and it was crazy easy to dump all of the links in CoverageBook and pump out graphics that excited the leadership team and their board.
You can then take those graphics and upload them to the media page for a more visually appealing look at all of your story placements.
I recommend both tools, in tandem, for all of your earned media efforts.
Have a Question?
What about you? Do you have other tools we should consider?
Also, if there is a topic you’d like us to cover, industry trends you’ve heard about but don’t understand, or a question you are embarrassed to ask but know we will be happy to answer let us know!
You can drop it in the comments below, DM us on social or in the Spin Sucks Community, or send an email.
You can also stop by my house with a bottle of wine for porch drinking…until it gets too cold out. And then you’ll have to wait until spring.
