Earned media is the opposite of paid media; it is any free media coverage secured by approaching (“pitching”) reporters. Earned media can be a great, cost-effective way to get the name of your organization and its services out to a broad audience.

- What to put in your sample pitch
- How to conduct outreach to producers and reporters
- What happens—and what to do—when you get booked on a television/radio news segment
- Appropriate follow-up
