Pro Tip: How to get your press release or announcement on Vendor Alley

by Greg Robertson on June 3rd, 2016

I’m always willing to help other vendors, especially new ones, get the word about their products and services. I also like to get the word out on new initiatives that existing vendors want to announce to the industry. But I’m super busy, so I don’t always get to all the requests I get. So I thought I would lay out a few guidelines that will give you a better shot of me posting something about you.

1. If its a press release please give me a link to where the press release is on your site (preferably) or somewhere on the internet. I hate not having somewhere for a reader to go, while reading my comments, to read your news. This is probably the number one reason I won’t post your story.

2. If you want me to include an image, please send it to me 550 px wide.

3. Also, if I get the news before anyone else than I’m 100% more likely to post.

One other pro tip. I know many companies like to make announcements around bigger events (NAR Annual, Midyear, Inman Connect, CMLS Conference, etc.) I can tell you from looking at the numbers that my site traffic goes WAY down DURING these events. So it might be best to announce your news a week before the event (if you can). I’m also open to “leaking” the news before the official press release/news comes out during the event.

This has been a public service announcement from the publisher of Vendor Alley.
