How to Use a Media List Template

Creating a media list can be an effective way to keep track of contacts and ensure that you’re reaching out to the right people. Here are some tips to help you create the perfect media list:

1. Brainstorm potential contacts

Start by brainstorming a list of potential contacts, such as journalists, bloggers, influencers, and other media outlets. This will help you create a comprehensive list that covers all your bases.

Use a Whiteboard in ClickUp to brainstorm potential contacts and add them to your media list.

2. Gather contact information

Once you have your list of potential contacts, start gathering their contact information. This includes their name, email address, phone number, and any other relevant details.

Create tasks in ClickUp to track contact information for each potential contact.

3. Organize contacts into categories

Organizing your contacts into categories can help you easily identify who is covering what topics and find the right contact for a particular story.

Use Board view in ClickUp to easily organize contacts into categories.

4. Create a media list spreadsheet

Creating a spreadsheet of your contacts will help you keep track of all the information in one central place. You can also use this spreadsheet to identify trends in the media and track your outreach efforts.

Build a Table view in ClickUp to easily store and access your media list in one place.

5. Reach out

Finally, begin reaching out to the contacts on your list. It’s important to keep a consistent and professional tone when contacting potential contacts.
