Online News Service Send2Press and Vickie Jenkins Performance Power Launch Partnership to Provide Affordable Effective Press Coverage and Media Coaching Services Within Reach of Small Businesses
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - June 21, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- A new strategic alliance between Send2Press Newswire (www.send2press.com) and Vickie Jenkins Media Coaching was announced today. This service will provide small to medium business (SMB) owners with a single-source solution for affordable PR service packages including news release writing, targeted news distribution, media coaching and media training. This alliance is designed to give companies who want to take the reins of their own media promotion access to a variety of "ready to go" PR kits called eMediaEXTRA(tm).
An example eMediaEXTRA(tm) plan includes: Professional press release writing with up to three drafts, highly targeted national news distribution direct to editors and extensive online news placement, plus two hours of Jenkins Media Coaching by phone, for $995.
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. With exclusive one-on-one and group training, experienced experts in the broadcast industry provide the perfect environment in which to learn and implement invaluable skills that will lead to success.
"This service is ideal for book authors, business owners, sales teams, musicians, CEOs, and others who may not feel comfortable speaking to the press by phone or on camera," Christopher Simmons, Send2Press president and founder, said. Mr. Simmons is a 25-year PR veteran, award-winning designer, a member of the Public Relations Society of America, an ASCAP member, as well as a contributing editor to numerous national magazines.
"The Media Coaching and Training Program teaches how to bridge back to your message when the interview wanders, deal with hostile questions, while you keep the audience interested, entertained and tuned in," says Jenkins. "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."
"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 with a coaching staff, or corporate retreats," added Simmons. "There is simply nothing else out there like this program for companies who want to do their own PR in-house."
