MEDIA CONTACT list for the dubois, pa area
I get asked about press contacts for our area often. Through my work with the Winkler Gallery and Art Education Center, Sunny 106, and Connect FM I've developed a list of local contacts that are worth reaching out to.
Feel free to bookmark this page and come back often to send out your press releases.
Why share this list publicly?
Well, first off, these are all available to find publicly if you look hard enough. I'm not really giving away any private information here. However, I understand how frustrating it is to build a list like this by yourself.
I want to see more publicity about local events. There is SO much going on in our area, but it's hard to get the word out. So here you go:
AN EASY, STEP-BY-STEP OVERVIEW TO MAKE BLOG POSTS THAT GET READ
Blogging has become a huge part of having a successful website. Especially in Business to Business sales, having a good blog can bring sales to your doorstep.

It turns out there are usually thousands of other people out there looking for answers to that question too.
Follow these steps and track the amount of views your blog posts receive. You won't be disappointed. If you do really well, some of those views should turn into paying customers!

There's an obvious "trick" to growing your YouTube views for free that has worked every since I joined in 2007. Now it's 2018 and I'm going to share this Fast, Free way to grow your YouTube audience and reach the people that actually want to see your videos, music, or whatever it is you're creating.

I joined YouTube in 2017 and used the platform to develop as a video editor and digital marketer. It’s interesting because some of the trends that used to work to get more views online have come and gone but there is one that has consistently worked.
Do you feel like your Facebook page or website aren't helping your business as much as it used to?
The cost of getting your posts out to your audience have skyrocketed.
Website trends keep moving ahead at light speeds.
eCommerce is a huge beast that takes time commitment to set up and manage.
The system is not rigged against you; the system has just evolved with more competition online. The internet is capitalism in it's truest form.
It has now become a business by itself just to keep up with the rapid changes happening with Facebook, YouTube, Websites, eCommerce, and the ecosystem as a whole. (I know because that is my business.)
You need one of two resources for online marketing: Time or Money.
The year 2016 has been full of changes. This was big for our production company, Sideline Pictures. We released a feature film and have started new initiatives in the last few months to grow our audience.
As an online marketer and content creator myself, I have been watching over our statistics to see what lessons I could learn from this experimentation stage in Sideline Pictures.
In this post, I am going to go through the last three months of the Sideline Pictures website growth and related social media channels. Those are my primary responsibility and what I do for other businesses, so they are of the most interest to me (and probably you).
At the beginning of December, we started posting to the blog a few times a week.
This content was primarily informational and is intended to help our target audience of other filmmakers. The goal here is to increase authority and network reach. Also helping people makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Unique visitors to the site started to spike immediately after new content was being created. Not only did this give visitors more potential pages to land on, it also opened up new opportunities to share pages on social media.
Here I am again. I'm sitting in front of my computer during a late night shift at a job that I don't hate enough to quit. Paralyzed by choice.
I rapidly Google online tests to tell me whether or not I should stay at this job, in this place, with my significant other. The answers are unsatisfying at best.
Everything seems to point to quit, move, leave them. Yet... that doesn't feel right.
On any given day my gut instinct about these three big questions sways in a totally different direction. How can you possibly make big choices like these without feeling like you're leaving another option behind?
In today's world there are so many opportunities sprawled out in front of us. I've found this one simple question has gotten me on the right path when I'm really struggling to come up with the answers myself.
Sitting here in front of my computer, I have long forgotten the first time I asked myself this. When I ask myself this question again, it will likely change the path I'm on for the better and I feel a huge weight being lifted from my shoulders.
[Note from a year later: It did drastically change everything. I moved halfway across the country and then back again after asking the big question again!]
