Now that you have a list of the top media outlets in New Jersey, what’s your next move?  

The next step in the earned media process is putting this information to work.   

To do so, you’ll need to dig a bit deeper to pinpoint the people behind the publication.   

Who writes about your industry? What’s their contact information?  

These seem like basic questions but uncovering these details can be difficult and this is where a media database can help.  

What’s a Media Database?   

A media database is a directory that consists of the contact information of individual members of the press.    

These contacts can include journalists, producers, editors, reporters, social media influencers, bloggers, and many other titles.    

Typically, these databases will include relevant email addresses, phone numbers, social media handles, and any other contact information that can be used to engage individual members of the media.
