MEDIA123 is a 22,200+ database of media names/addresses packaged with an
easy-to-use sort/extract and print application. Use Media123 to target
specific newspapers, magazines, and broadcasts for publicity for your
particular business. Media123 allows you to print on different label stocks
as well as to export to ascii files for mail merge. You can also add your
own media names to create your own list. It has never been easier to extract
the names of editors and talk-show hosts who can help you get the publicity
that your business needs. Advertising costs money, but publicity is free...
you just have to work a bit harder to get it. Media123 cuts this work in
half by saving your the time and effort of finding the media that covers
your particular business or product. The 10-day trial package is
full-features, but it only has some 1100 names/addresses. Upon purchase,
buyer is sent the complete 22,500+ file. There are other media lists on the
market but NONE of them come with their own easy to use update and extract
engine. Why pay high fees for PR when you can have the same data the
professionals have! Media123 will be updated once a year for a nominal cost.
This is the media application that you have been waiting for! You won't find
anything on the market like it for even twice the price! Once you try it,
you will be convinced that Media123 is one of the best investments that your
business can make. You can't sell if no one knows about you and Media123 can
get you started in getting free media publicity. A press release to the
right people is all it takes... and Media has the lists of the right people!
