What do I do when someone from the media contacts me?
Sometimes, as employees of CleanSlate, a news reporter, someone from a blog or publication or perhaps even a documentary filmmaker will contact us directly. What should you do when this happens? We are here to help! Marketing and Communications has resources, messaging and media training available when you need it.
Whether it’s national or local news, it’s very important for CleanSlate to project a cohesive message that conveys who we are – and as we grow – who we intend to be. This means that everyone needs to be “singing from the same songbook.”
So…if you are contacted by the media, we ask that you please do the following:
- Please do not accept or return the call until you have communicated with us.
- Contact information:
Perhaps this happens during a conversation already in progress? Maybe at a conference or a local event? If that’s the case, please just politely indicate that you greatly appreciate their interest in CleanSlate and are happy to connect them with our communications department. Then just email us with their information and we’ll take it from there. You are also more than welcome to give them our contact information, please just give us a heads up so we know to expect an email!
