Newspage has turned the traditional PR model on its head. To date, it has focused on giving every small business and charity the chance to be featured in the local, trade, national and even international media without having to pay a penny.

It is now opening its doors to everyone in an effort to connect those who have stories, talent and expertise with journalists in the mainstream media who would love to hear about them.

From artists and musicians to academics and actors, now everyone can create a free Newspage and be fast-tracked into the mainstream media.

Users simply create their own publicly visible and fully branded free Newspage — a media centre that most don’t have — in a matter of minutes.

They then add their stories and any supporting media, and receive ‘NewsAlerts’ ‘in app’ to breaking or upcoming news stories that they could contribute to. The Newspage editorial team will promote stories it believes will be of interest to the media for free.

One user, Graham Taylor of mortgage broker Hudson Rose in Nailsworth and Cirencester, describes Newspage as “The Sex Pistols of PR”, adding “it’s Anarchy in the UK media from now on”.

Dr Shungu Hilda M’gadzah, lead consultant psychologist at Inclusion Psychologists, says the following of Newspage: “Newspage is a platform that gives people who would never use a traditional PR agency a voice in the media. My opinions on important issues have been featured in countless news outlets and I’ve even been live on TV. Everyone should have a Newspage.”

Dominic Hiatt, founder, Newspage, added: “Newspage, one piece of media coverage at a time, is giving everyone the chance to have their story told, or show off their expertise, in front of millions of people. When we launched, our focus was on small businesses and charities but we have invested heavily in our technology and are now opening our doors to everyone who has a talent, story or specific expertise. Our goal now is to give everyone the chance to be in the mainstream media without having to pay a pr agency or agent. Our existing users love what we do and we’re now ready to take on many, many more.”
