Help Us to Help You

Yesterday, Spike asked if you want to make your life easier, and win a bottle of Bollinger into the bargain? Just to repeat: up in the top left-hand of our home page on is an item called allnewswire – simply, it allows organisations to post story ideas (as media releases), inviting the media to follow them up.

It’s worked very well so far, but we want to expand it. That’s why we’re giving you the chance to quaff some champagne in return for a quick bit of market research.

allnewswire gives you story ideas. But to what extent is that useful to you? And could do more for you?

If you work for a weekly newspaper, or report for a local radio station, how much more useful would it be if you were alerted of media releases, identified by region?

Or if you’re an independent TV director, always on the look-out for a quirky story idea to turn into a programme proposal, would you welcome them posted on allnewswire?

Have you used the archive function, which allows you to search media releases from way back when, on whatever topic?

In short, we’d like to know how much you appreciate allnewswire already. And how it might serve you better.

All comments or suggestions welcome. And one lucky respondent – picked at random – will be immediately dispatched the Bolli.
