What is modern public relations?
Public relations has changed substantially since the advent of Tik Tok, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram and social media generally. Publicists still play their traditional role, but the expectations from companies of the pr agencies is completely different. The digital era has ushered in a new form of publicity that requires deep knowledge of influencers, editorial features that go beyond mere mentions, and strategies designed to achieve return on investment in the same way that advertisers measure their spend on Google Ads and Facebook. Public relations takes on a multi-faceted role in digital age, extending to brand management & reputation. In fact, the role of public relations has not changed as much as the expectations of clients that engage PR agencies. Public relations professionals may be using more technology than ever before, but they are still managing the reputations of their clients with the ultimate goal to increase leads, sales and demonstrate return on spend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our Global News List include the logos mentioned above plus loads more. However, Entrepreneur.com, Forbes, Yahoo Finance, Business Insider, Associated Press, Entrepreneur, Benzinga and others require a monthly subscription and some publications options are not available until month 2 or 3 depending on the particular publication. Please see all FAQs before purchasing as these FAQs govern the terms of our relationship.
We have a team of highly credentialed and experienced writers and editors, however sometimes aligning expectations between our team and your brand causes friction. We send a questionnaire after payment is received to give us some background about what you want us to write, how you want it written and we will try our best in every case.
Our clients usually pick an attention grabbing topic about their business. If you’re not sure, you can always reach out to us for help. We have a great team that have experience in getting more eyeballs onto articles.
This happens from time to time, and the solution is always to simply let us know the changes you want to the news story by communicating them directly to us. We will always share the news stories with you in an editable format. You are free to change the article, make edits or change links as you like.
Our writing service is limited to one draft and one round of edits for each news story. If you want us to start again, fees apply. Please note that if you rewrite the article, or insert changes directly into the article, you will not be charged anything further.
Every now and again articles don’t rank straight away, although the majority do, especially in the Google News Feed. There are strategies to help get your published news stories to rank strongly in Google, but you will need to integrate the links and logos into your website in a search engine friendly manner. We can advise on this after you receive our press publication report.
– The headline must include the company’s name or the name of the spokesperson / author.
– The headline can’t contain personal pronouns (I, Me, My, We, Us, Our, You, Your, Them, Their, etc.).
– The headline can’t contain an exclamation point.- The headline should be a minimum 6-8 words (excluding prepositions and articles)
– The headline can’t contain quotes.
– The headline should not sound like the headline of an advert. Discounts/pricing details and product specifications can be added in the Sub headline or article’s body.
2) The article can’t be written in the first or second person voice. First person (I, Me, My, We, Us, Our, etc.) and second person (You, Your, etc.) voices are not considered newsworthy, except in quotations.
3) The articles cannot mention BadenBower in the headline or body copy or denigrate our reputation or good-standing.
Its quick. If you give us your article, it is usually 2-5 business days. If we write the article, it can be 2-10 business days.
You will have a report that contains the logo of each website (ie Apple News, Marketwatch, Fox etc) along with the relevant link, but please note our service is paid promotion and sometimes news sites make it hard for users to search for the articles themselves without having a direct link to the article. What most customers do is link the logos and articles from their homepage, landing pages, contact page and social media to increase trust and credibility and this is what we recommend you do too.
By credit card, wire transfer or EFT or USDT if you want to pay in cryptocurrency. News stories are charged monthly, although you can cancel anytime before the next billing period. There are no lock-in contracts.
Articles usually stay up for months or years, but in some cases like with Marketwatch and Fox publishers decide to remove them within 3 months of publication. Provided we succeed in publishing your news story, there will be no refund if the story is removed
Entrepreneur.com requires a monthly subscription or 5 or 3 news stories and is available in the second or third month respectively. Our connection with Entrepreneur.com is via Entrepreneur India, an international franchise of Entrepreneur Media. The article will be published on Entrepreneur.com via one of their contributors. Your company name or brand cannot be included in the headline, although it can be featured in the first paragraph.
The upgrade to these websites refers to one news story only, which must be written in the style of a press release announcing a corporate milestone, notable hire or other achievement. There are special editorial requirements that apply. For example, you cannot be promoting an individual or blockchain project for example. If you are not in a position to meet those requirements, we will publish your news story on CEO Weekly which is less stringent.
We have access to Forbes.com, Forbes Monaco, and Forbes India. Publication on Forbes.com, Forbes Monaco and Forbes India are all available as an extra upgrade and further fees apply. If you are interested in accessing other Forbes assets, please speak to our sales team and further charges will apply

Cancelling your monthly subscription is easy. Simply email us prior to your next billing date to request cancellation of the service and we will cancel your monthly billing arrangement immediately. If you cancel after your billing date, you will be able to utilize the news stories remaining but no refunds will be allowed.
Refunds are only considered if we fail to publish your news story or news stories, if you have paid for more than 1, or if some other arrangement applies, if we fail to publish where we indicate. If we engage with you, write articles in an attempt to publish and you do not provide sign-off, or fail to provide edits that you are happy to publish within 7 days of a draft article being submitted to you, you are not eligible for a refund. If we engage with you in good faith, and you hide information about your business or person and a publication won’t publish because of an active criminal or civil case which was not known to us at the time of engagement, we will publish your story on alternate news sites that are more tolerant of companies and individuals before the courts. If this is the case, you are not entitled to a refund, but we will publish the number of news stories purchased, but on alternate news sites. Monthly subscriptions must be cancelled prior to your next billing date, which is 30 days from your prior billing date. Cancellations must be received prior to your next billing date or no refund will apply.
