Australian Associated Press (AAP) and Medianet response to story

The press release sent through from Susie caught the AAP Editor’s attention firstly due to the captivating headline (a bit of humour in a hot topic never goes astray) and secondly to the detail put into the release. It gave the information needed right from the get-go with strong bullet points and an expert to talk to on the matter. A great piece of PR for Medianet to pass on to the relevant journalists.

Susie’s press release then went on to be chosen by the editorial team to be taken into the News Room conference, along with one other to be pitched to the Editor In-Chief. Susie’s was the one they chose with the possibility of it being included in their news for the day which is distributed throughout all News Rooms.
