Startups and Media

These startups need attention for three main reasons: branding, user acquisition and investor attention. Branding helps startups in building a unique name and image. Branding leads adding customers and when you have a sizeable number of customers, startups attract the attention of investors.

Need of media training

To achieve this, startups need to have a good communication strategy to connect with the media so that media can speak about them in the right way. Most entrepreneurs are either technically dexterous or good at operations and do not understand the nuances of communications. They make some critical mistakes while managing their communications with the media. Hence they need a basic understanding of the functioning of media and especially Public Relations. This will help them in achieving media attention.
