    Had a reporter from the local paper call today to set up an interview. This will be my first feature article, they want to feature a local organic landscape company for earthday. What should I say, or try to include in the interview?

    I had a similar situation and I think it would have helped my company alot more if in the picture you could have seen my logo, try and get a picture by your truck (if you have signs) or of you in uniform. Congrats on the article!

    I think talking about your company is the best way to go. Keep mentioning your company name and reiterate the services you offer. Good Luck.

    I think you should make sure they tell the public who you are. And standing by your truck isn't a bad idea unless they just do a head shot of you. I was interviewed a couple of years ago for plowing and all they got was my very pretty face....:laugh: yeah right.lol But I had a sweatshirt on and you could just see our logo. It didnt help my business out one freakin' bit, I just tried to drive up the price for plowing when the reporter asked whats an average price fo rplowing a residential driveway, that didnt even work,lol good luck.:waving:
