Press release distribution and hosting

Anytime. Unlimited. No extra costs. Professionally managed communications.

press release distribution youth
Access an expanding contact list of student and youth media journalists, eager to receive and to cover your content. Initially comprised  of the newsdesks of over 300 UK student media publications, radio stations and TV channels, this list is now growing to include active bloggers and prominent content creators. Send your press releases, interview invites, review copies and press conference calls through this list and follow the likes of Domino’s, Action Aid and Mellow Bird’s in using our service to engage student media. As well as distribution, subscribers have their content hosted on StudentMediaWire, meaning search engine visibility and Creative Commons syndication.  More about this feature.

Subscribe today and receive electronic mailing labels for over 650 UK students’ unions. These Excel/CSV files contain postal addresses for both higher ed and further ed institutions. They’re ready to be labeled with an appropriate union contact, whether it’s the ents or bar manager, sabbatical officer or even the union president. We include a guidance document explaining how to use the labels effectively and relevantly.

Pulse – a dynamic site monitoring youth opinion and influence

Trend watching. Buzz monitoring. Idea sourcing. Understanding attitudes.

We created Pulse to monitor the conversation taking place among the UK 16-24 audience and those involved in their lives. This subscriber-only site aggregates the live feeds from hundreds of sources to create a simple yet immersing overview of the youth mindset, those that influence it, and those that research it. Expertly curated, it sources the latest articles and commentary from youth media, discussions happening on forums, output from youth-focussed brands, views from social media on topical subjects, as well as the fresh writings from top youth marketers. It’s an easy and convenient way to instantly tap into the realtime youth world and stay ahead.

Regular e-books on hot topics and best practice

Learn from successful campaigns. Get invaluable step-by-step instruction. Apply new ideas to your situation.

Is Foursquare relevant to my campaign? How do you recruit and manage a successful social media advocate programme? What strategies have brands like Red Bull and Apple used to win in the youth market? These are the kinds of questions we tackle in our regular e-books. Some months we speak to the marketing directors and account managers working on top youth brands to mine their insights, experiences and opinion. Other times we detail the precise methods we have used to run effective youth campaigns – and share the learnings that will save you time and money in your own work. Don’t miss out on these.

Annual youth marketing conference

Expert speakers. Quality focus. Networking and inspiration.

Taking place in London, spring 2011, this inaugural members-only conference promises to deliver quality content and highly experienced speakers. All sessions are to be planned around the surveyed needs of our members, and the emphasis is on delivering practical insights, inspirational case studies and latest thinking. Organised by Luke Mitchell, a former chair of Marketing magazine’s Marketing to Students conference. Be part of it.
