My name is Mark Baird. I am the founder of HirePatriots.com. I write about everything that helps US veterans, the organizations that support them, and US small businesses.
How to Get Free TV, Radio and Press
The News media is constantly in search of breaking news and stories that interest, inform, entertain and assist their subscribers. If you are able to offer the News networks such programming, then you will most certainly be welcomed by the producers, station managers, reporters and editors who are responsible for finding such content.
It makes it all the more easy to be featured, interviewed or published if you represent a not-for-profit. If your approach is to promote a commercial endeavor their first thought will be to get you to pay for advertising. However, if you reach out to them in an effort to help local veterans and their families with a free program that has a benefit to the community it will be almost always welcomed.
HirePatriots.com is a program of Patriotic Hearts, a 501c3 non-profit. We are a job board for residents to hire local veterans when they need help around their homes and yards. And we have a Career job board too. We are unique. No one else does what we do. We offer a free job board for community residents and businesses to hire their local US veterans and their spouses.
Instead of supporting a cause and never meeting the people you are helping, HirePatriots offers US citizens the opportunity to have the veterans over to your house. You get to meet active duty and recently transitioned US veterans, men and women. And you can have them back over as often as you have jobs for them to do. Many residents become close friends with these veterans and build life-long relationships with them and their families. Plus, if enough people and companies hire their local troops, airmen, sailors and Marines, it will stimulate the local economy, as it did in San Diego where we got the program started. This is the kind of News that the media loves.
HirePatriots seeks to work with businesses that want to utilize our great cause to help them achieve their marketing, recruiting and P.R. goals. And the costs of getting the HirePatriots program up and running robustly is a fraction of what other methods require. And you get the benefit of actually helping hundreds if not thousands of veterans, residents and companies within your network’s reach.
If a business does not have a US veteran to speak on their behalf, we can recruit and train a local veteran to do so for them. That veteran may even become a full or part time marketer and recruiter for that company. By enlisting a veteran spokesperson to represent their company and its support of HirePatriots in their area they have an open door to not just the media but also to speaking at conventions, chambers, clubs and organizations. Using our popular purpose is far more effective than traditional advertising or recruiting methods. It encourages people to join you in a popular cause.
Companies that participate in this powerful cause marketing strategy receive their own, customized HirePatriots website, job board and blog filled with pictures videos and links about their company with links to their corporate site.
It is HirePatriots’ goal to find hundreds of such forward thinking and patriotic businesses all across America. Together we will give great assistance to our worthy US veterans and their spouses. We will create an Employment Safety Net for US Veterans all across America. And at the same time we will build your company’s brand and make it much more appreciated, respected and honored than it already is. This strategy is a true win-win.
