How to help a reporter out

Throw them a link, send them some page views. These are hard times in the news business, every single copy sale, every subscription, every page view, every unique hit counts.

helpAReporter.com is useful if your trying to help reports for plugs. They send three e-mails a day with reports who need sources. It has about 20 reporters/bloggers per e-mail. You can also send a request for sources, even if your a small fry. Nice work with the blog, your post just reminded me of that site, keep it up.

I am familiar with HARO and use it all the time. It is a wonderful service. I just want to draw attention to ways flacks can offer practical help to reporters.
