Tip 4. Paste a link of the article they recently wrote or you want to reference when you contact the journalists - this is a massive time saver and helps you achieve greater success

Final tip: Dedicate ONE hour to do this research per weekend. At the end of the year, you will have in the region of 364 clean contacts in your database
