Are you on Twitter? If you are make sure you keep your eye on the hashtag #JournoRequest
Freelance journalists use this hashtag to find people in certain niches or subject matter they are writing about. Nicky knows many people who have responded and ended up in articles in print or online, and Bam! – Exposure for your business.
Here are some recent ones so you will see just how unique they can be –
“Looking to speak to a heavy metal female singer for an investigative feature about women pioneering the genre and sexism in the industry”
“Looking to speak to someone who has been detained in a UK detention centre”
“I’m after a woman who has had glimpses of the afterlife”
“On the hunt for the best afternoon teas delivered nationwide”
“Did you have to re-home your dog during the pandemic?”
All those were tweeted within the space of an hour on Friday, so it’s very active and fast moving and well worth keeping an eye on.
