/ Leave a comment

My Local Reporter is one PR tool we plan on using to pitch Empower Lounge to local press so thought we would share the love. As we know, PR firms can be expensive and since we’re bootstrappin’ this venture we hope it becomes our secret weapon to getting great press without breaking the bank.

Here’s what Everything PR had to say about My Local Reporter:

“There’s a an old PR strategy gaining more and more momentum these days, and MyLocalReporter fits right in. Hyperlocal is more than a trend – it’s a tested and proven PR strategy. It may as well be the PR buzz word of the year 2012, but the strategy has been part of the PR arsenal since way back when PRs relied mainly on local journalists to spread their news. And it’s coming back, this time online, with the dawn of hyperlocal social networks, hyperlocal news sites, hyperlocal blogs and so on.”
