This is like shooting fish in a barrel…

This week, a client in the technology advancement space received the following from me:

Publicity Opportunity:

Back To The Future – 21 October 2015 marks the day Marty arrives in the future and rides the infamous hover board.

Publicity Angle:

We now have various hover boards on the market or in development…

  2. How can we predict what technology will be in the future; and
  3. What are you doing in the space to make that reality or how can you offer an opinion on the future of technology?


This is a perfect match for their brand and message, and has a very, very high likelihood of publication within their target media outlets!

Unless you are consistently doing new things, organic publicity opportunities for your brand dry up quickly.
