How entrepreneurs can work more effectively with biz reporters
Elham P. Mohammadi writes for Entrepreneur writes about how entrepreneurs can work more effectively with the business media.
Mohammadi writes, “When a journalist or a media writer is approached by a startup, the first thing they usually do is to check the company’s website. Here’s what you can do to make their life easier:
“Write a short, straightforward bio for your company. Most of the time, there’s no need to be intentionally ambiguous, get philosophical, or use technical terms when presenting your company.
“In a few sentences at the top of your home page, explain clearly what you’re doing and save the journalist the hassle of having to decode your mission and vision.
“You can use the About section of your website to talk about your personal journey and the aha moment that led you down the road of entrepreneurship.
