Sometimes (in fact most times) a strong placement happens when a release hits an editor atrepparttar 127403 right place atrepparttar 127404 right time. Sure you may have pitch that media contact three times overrepparttar 127405 last few weeks, but perhaps that reporter/editor/producer didn't haverepparttar 127406 time orrepparttar 127407 editorial space to work your release into a placement. Your opportunity for placements increases with meticulous, media follow-ups and re-pitches. What many business owners/entrepreneurs don't realize isrepparttar 127408 majority of media outlets fail to respond until afterrepparttar 127409 third or fourth pitch. I continue to be amazed and amused atrepparttar 127410 editor/producer who, upon receiving my pitch forrepparttar 127411 fourth time, says "I'm so glad you reminded me of this release!" or "Great timing! This will fit perfectly in a feature were doing this week/month!" Ifrepparttar 127412 release had just been pitched once and not followed up, those placements would not have taken place.

So make sure your PR staff orrepparttar 127413 company you've hired isn't afraid to wind up and pitch your campaign multiple times. Just like in baseball,repparttar 127414 more pitches there are -repparttar 127415 better chances you get to make a hit.
