Here's another funny thing. Readers expect unbiased articles. That means good editors don't accept material that has been rewritten by interview sources.
If you do convince writer to show you article, rewrite it, adding a great deal of promotional content about your business and its products.
When article is not published, denounce writer and editor as amateurs who wasted your time.
4. Keep it Short. Don't waste words. You were born with only a limited number of words to be spoken during your lifetime and you're not going to waste them on this interview. Respond succinctly with one word answers. Refuse to provide anecdotal information of type that would catch a reader's interest. When asked if you have anything else to add, say "no." Use little-known technical terms and industry jargon wherever possible.
Later, be sure to complain that article was boring and didn't portray what your business is all about.
5. Fight for your Rights Agree to be interviewed only if publisher and writer will grant you copyright to article. Argue with publisher and refuse to sign any releases that are offered. If you do agree to sign something, scratch out any items you don't like and replace them with your own terms. Threaten legal action. Ignore fact that you have limited understanding of copyright issues. Continue to haggle until publication's deadline has passed.
When article is abandoned, tell everyone that you stood up for your rights with a greedy publisher and writer.
6. You're a Romantic and Exciting Action Figure The writer made you sound dull and boring. You might be a mild mannered Clark Kent on outside, but on inside, you're Superman.
A good writer would have known that!!!
