Another way you can get paid to write press releases for your clients…
Many businesses participate in community events related to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. If you’ve got an ongoing press release client, be sure to ask whether they’ve got anything planned for this holiday, then promote that event in a press release.
If your relationship with your client has evolved from simply providing writing services to fulfilling more of a marketing consultant role for them, you might want to be more proactive in helping them develop their marketing calendar. You can help them select holidays and events each month that resonate with them, connect somehow to their business, or provide an opportunity for them to give back to their community. Then write a press release about whatever they decide to do in observance of that holiday.
If your client needs some help coming up with a way to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, here’s a short list of sponsorship ideas your client may like:
- A reading contest of relevant books at a local school
- A coloring or poster creation contest in the community
- A speech contest in a local high school
- A parade float
- “I have a dream” book creation craft time at a local library
Holidays and events like this throughout the year create the opportunity for everyone to win – businesses get the opportunity to give back to their community and get some good press, and freelance writers get paid to write press releases about what they did!
