Media Coaching Firm, Vickie Jenkins Performance Power, Teams with Online Newswire Service Send2Press to Provide Affordable and Effective Press Coverage and Media Training
SANTA MONICA, Calif. - June 18, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- A new strategic alliance between Vickie Jenkins Media Coaching (www.media-trainer.com) and Send2Press® (www.send2press.com) a unit of Neotrope®, will provide corporate and small business owners with a single-source solution for affordable PR services, including news release writing and targeted news distribution, search engine marketing, and cost-effective media coaching and media training, it was announced today. This alliance will give companies the access and skills needed to handle their own media promotion, through a variety of "ready to go" PR programs.
Jenkins' Performance Power program is guaranteed to improve communication skills - whether speaking to one person or one million, from an office, a podium, or a television studio. Jenkins' exclusive one-on-one and group training with experienced experts in the broadcast communications industry provides the perfect environment in which to learn and implement invaluable skills that will lead to success.
"The media coaching and training program teaches how to bridge back to your message when the interview wanders, deal with hostile questions that pop up, and keep the audience interested, entertained and tuned in," says Vickie Jenkins, founder of Performance Power Media Coaching. "Holding your own in an interview is one thing, but learning how to use that valuable airtime to make an impact for yourself and your company is the true secret to success."
Send2Press is a division of Neotrope, a media relations, advertising, and marketing company founded in 1983. Send2Press was launched in 1997 to take advantage of the new technologies and cost-cutting potential of using the Internet to deliver news releases and editorial content to the media.
"This service is ideal for book authors, musicians, start-up CEOs, and others who may not feel comfortable speaking to the press (or investors) by phone or in front of others," said Christopher Simmons, Send2Press founder and Chief Visionary. Mr. Simmons is a 25-year PR veteran, award-winning designer, a member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), an ASCAP member, and a contributing editor to numerous national technology publications. He has also served on the judging panel for the PRSA Excellence in Tech Journalism Awards for the past two years.
New service packages available today on the Send2Press.com website allow companies to order both news distribution and writing services, as well as Jenkins media coaching, at discounted "bundle" pricing -- which is substantially less than if the services were ordered separately from each company.

"Small businesses and individuals can now gain the same kind of news placement and media coaching previously reserved for large corporations willing to spend vast sums on PR agencies and corporate retreats," added Simmons.
