HOW TO SEND STUFF

Send An Email. Be In The News.

Our Marketing Team Reviews, Edits, Adjusts And Organizes Your News Into A Segment To Be Broadcast On Our Networks

Now as simple as sending an email with a few links and a couple image attachments, any business or individual can issue a press release, news story, a sale, promotion, sell something, promote an event or distribute information to the public and have it published on our network news.

Here’s How It Works

  • You send us an email to news@freeportnewsnetwork.com
  • In your email you include your article, press release, advertisement, or you just type something up and send it in.
  • You include 2-3 photos, your logo, contact information.
  • You also include links to other media such as any video you have.
  • Our News and Marketing Team reviews and optimizes your material (if needed)
  • We then find the right category(s) and placement(s) for your spot and prepare it for Broadcast.
  • Our publishing staff then airs it on our networks.

Example 1

  • YOU. You’re having a Donut Sale and offering customers if they buy 3 donuts they get 3 free. You send us a simple email stating that and you attach your logo and a product image. (logo would only need to be sent once)
  • US: Our News And Marketing Team reviews your material and determines a Banner Ad would work great for you.

Example 2

  • YOU. Your local organization just raised $6,000 dollars to donate to a local charity. You write up a brief description, attach a couple photos you took at the event and you send us that email.
  • US: Our News And Marketing Team reviews your material and determines a Featured Story would work great for you.

Example 3

  • YOU. You’re a local school or business that does regular features, (whether article or video) on an ongoing basis. After it’s all produced you send us an email and provide that content to us. (Video is up, here’s a link) 
  • US: Our News And Marketing Team reviews your material and determines since you’re doing an ongoing feature segment, that it’s a great value for your local community and determines you should have your own Special Featured Section on the news network.

Example 4

  • YOU. Your night club came up with a great idea to have a billy goat in the bar to help end the curse on the Cubs and you want some news coverage. You send us an email with a little note that you have a goat, you include a picture of the goat, a shot of your bar and your logo. (again, we would only need your logo once)
  • US: Our News And Marketing Team reviews your material and determines a Top Story would work great for you.
