Promoting events to an external audience
What is the best way to communicate my event or announcement to an external audience?
- Start with Milligan’s Public Relations Office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 461-8764).
All news releases, announcements to the community, posters, media interviews, etc., must be approved and coordinated by the Milligan College Public Relations Office. The PR office has an extensive list of media contacts and regularly emails news releases promoting Milligan’s events, people and accomplishments to regional media outlets. The PR Office is happy to help you formulate and execute a plan for your announcement or event. It’s our job to tell Milligan’s story and to tell it well!
- Start early.
The best way to ensure that you get the word out to the most people is to begin planning the publicity early—as soon as you finalize the date and details of the event. If you would like a news release sent to the media, please request a news release form from the PR office and return it to PR no later than three weeks prior to the event.
- Start spreading the word.
In addition to off-campus promotion, make sure you’ve requested your event or announcement be added to Milligan Today (today.milligan.edu).
