In the 24-hour cycle of traditional and social media, newsjacking could be key to getting attention for your nonprofit.

It’s a trendy phrase coined in 2011 by marketing master David Meerman Scott. In his words, “Newsjacking is the art and science of injecting your ideas into a breaking news story so you and your ideas get noticed.” When a news story breaks, journalists are under pressure to update that story for the next edition or broadcast. That’s your chance to swoop in with something a reporter can use that’s related to the main story to freshen it up.

During this budget-friendly webinar, we will talk about strategies that use trending news to elevate your message with the media. This can work for large and small nonprofits, but it does take a little finesse.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What is Newsjacking?
  • How are nonprofits using this tool to leverage media attention?
  • What traits journalists are looking for? These will include sensitivity, knowledge, accuracy, and honesty
  • How to avoid the pitfalls of injecting yourself into trending media conversations.

Newsjacking (although it can be tricky) is a useful tool to generate tons of media coverage and social media engagement. Join us for this budget-friendly webinar and learn how you can use it!
