Research Project: FIND PUBLIC RELATIONS (PR) CONTACTS FOR TOP RETAIL OUTLETSBookmark This
Posted: September 21 2016
Always be on the alert for potentially fraudulent job postings online - never send money to a potential employer.
DescriptionCreate a current and up to date EMAIL LIST OF PUBLIC RELATIONS (PR) CONTACTS (the media relations representatives that journalists must contact for information on the business) IN EXCEL SPREADSHEET FORMAT for the Top 100 companies in the following industry: RETAIL STORES AND OUTLETS.
Note: These should be for consumer-facing outlets only.
Research and find out and list the first/last names, email, and phone number for the top 100 businesses in the industry – examples include Wal-Mart, Costco, Walgreens, The Gap, American Eagle, Best Buy, Macy's etc.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE MORE THAN ONE CONTACT FOR SOME COMPANIES AND THAT ALL SHOULD BE INCLUDED WHEN THIS IS THE CASE – e.g. McDonald's may have 6 or 7 contacts.
Some likely sample Google keywords to search for that can help you quickly seek them out are below: - Public Relations Contact at [COMPANY NAME] (e.g. “public relations contact Logitech”) - Press Relations Contact at [COMPANY NAME] (e.g. “press relations contact Logitech”) - Media Relations Contact at [COMPANY NAME] (e.g. “media relations contact Logitech”) - PR Contact at [COMPANY NAME] (e.g. “PR contact Logitech”) - Any of the above combinations with @companyname.com (e.g. “PR contact @bestbuy.com”)
PR Websites can help track these down too and provide new leads: PR NEWSWIRE · BUSINESS WIRE · MARKET WIRED · · PRWEB · PRMAC · PRLOG · PR.COM Note: Some contacts may be internal (e.g. work for Sears directly) and some external (work for an external PR firm like Ogilvy, Golin Harris, etc.) – we want all.
Lists where you can find company names to pull contacts for:
