With the fall season upon us, it's the perfect time to review your goals and get things done. Plus, the holiday season will be here before you know it!

Here are some tips to help you focus and get the publicity you need to be successful.

1. Write down your publicity goals.



I know. You've probably heard this a hundred times. But it can really help you focus.

If you have dreams of getting a great new job, being on Oprah, Good Morning America, or in the pages of the Wall Street Journal, write it down. Then, place this reminder in a prominent place in your work area.

After all, how are you going to reach your goals if you aren't thinking about them or don't even know what they are?

2. Review.

Now is a good time to see how things are going with your publicity efforts.
  • What have you accomplished so far this year?

  • What has worked and what hasn't?

  • What do you need to accomplish this year?
Take a few minutes to review your progress. Make necessary changes or create new story angles.

3. Conduct research.

After you review your progress, you may need some help moving forward.

Read the latest news about industry trends.
  • What are your competitors doing?

  • What are key media members writing about?
Reconnect with current stories, statistics, and news items. You'll feel "in the know" and be more apt to develop new story pitches and creative ideas to share with the media.

4. Take action!

What are you going to do today to work towards your goal? Ask yourself this question each morning.

Even if you can only accomplish one simple task each day (make a call, send an email media pitch, update a website page, etc.), you'll be that much closer to your goal.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
