The Gift List has just posted 75 new “short leads” for Publicity Hounds who want to promote products that would make great gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduation. Several of those have deadlines this week.
Getting your product mentioned in these guides is often far easier than convincing an editor to feature it in any other story or section. The Gift List is a subscription-based service that has done more than 600 hours of research to find the national magazines, regional magazines, the top 250 newspapers, top radio stations, major wire and news services and even national TV shows that feature products and services especially for the holidays.
Once you subscribe, you’ll have full access to their database. Check out their pitching tips, too, which are courtesy of The Publicity Hound.
Don’t forget that many of these media outlets want your photos, too. So have print and electronic photos on hand.
