Tracking Your Press Release
The simplest way to track your coverage is to use Google Alerts. To set up a Google alert, visit www.google.com/alerts and create an alert for each keyword you are interested in receiving a notification about. If you are entering phrases with multiple words, be sure to place quotation marks at the beginning and ending of the phrase. This will ensure that you receive notifications when something is published online with the entire phrase, rather than every individual word within the phrase.
Visit the Florida Public Relations Association – Central West Coast Chapter website for more details on how to purchase a complete Media Directory for the Sarasota-Manatee region.
PLEASE NOTE: The Sarasota Chamber is not responsible for what our local media picks up or doesn’t pick up. However, we do know they like good news, like new hires, ribbon cuttings, grand openings, etc.
If you have any questions about using the Press Release Tool or submitting, please contact Dillon Buckland, Communications Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (941) 556-4039.
