Press Release Help

PLEASE: can we have some volunteers to write some press releases for RNW.

Generally writing a mini-article about MCN, or about the specific events happening.

I wrote a couple last year but am feeling like I'm spread a bit thin to do it justice this year.

I could give it a go.

But I am new to MCN's so would require specific points that need to be covered in the articles. Might still be too much for you?

That would be FAB Melly. Probibly better than one of us old hands because you see things with fresh eyes.

heres what I did last year
http://thenappynetwork.org.nz/phpBB2/vi ... hp?t=33026

And the general "media" section with past press releases etc
http://thenappynetwork.org.nz/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=64

Basically we need to get the info out there that there is an event on: what, where, when...


You can write as an advertorial style, or write your experiences with modern cloth with a plug for RNW events etc... whatever style you feel comfortable with.

I can draft one up as well, just a quick idea I had.

Are there any retailers out there who can tell me if they've noticed a surge or increase in MCN sales since the recession?

I don't know if it's the recession or not, but I have been really busy the last few months and it's mainly full sets that I've been selling.. Both from the website and also through my retailers :)

I think a lot of people are reconsidering their nappy useage and the costs.

LOL since I have union "contacts" :lol:

I had an idea for the union newspaper, something along the lines of supermarkets are bad employers, or combat the rising cost of living... buy MCN instead :lol:

Has anyone written anything up? Mazz - completely understand that you wouldn't have even thought of this.

Otherwise will probably just go with last years with some updates.???

Kaz??

Melly24?

I drafted something, Karmiec has it and is just getting someone to list as a contact/spokesperson (Kaz I think?). I got all inspired that night and churned one out :lol: Haven't had a chance to chase it up since :)
