Gospel Promotion Help: Jawn Murray

Black Gospel Promo: Press Release

Washington, DC - Under his newest venture, multimedia journalist Jawn Murray is helping gospel artists and personalities get ready for both the gospel music community and the mainstream industry with his one-on-one media training workshop. For his much-sought-after services, the renowned media personality provides artists with tailor-made techniques that will help them effectively communicate with all aspects of the media (radio, television, print, online and red carpet) and the general public.

“While pure talent and God-given ability can land an artist a recording contract and maybe even a hit record, only polished talent with an ability to maintain their success by refining their aptitude to both captivate and communicate with the media and consumers have longevity,” Mr. Murray states. “Recognizing the need for development with gospel artists, I decided to take my expertise as a mainstream multimedia journalist and use it to educate, inspire and empower gospel artists.”

Mr. Murray recently worked with EMI Gospel artists Kierra “KiKi” Sheard and Bishop T.D. Jakes protégé Micah Stampley. Sessions include fundamentals from Murray’s bespoke curriculum and cover everything from ‘Personalized Media/Lifestyle Coaching’ to ‘Artist Decorum and Performance Principals’ and ‘How to Salvage a Struggling CD.’

“Media training and artist development is done in a personal, one-on-one setting. It’s like a session with an entertainment psychiatrist,” jokes Mr. Murray. “But only record labels or companies who genuinely believe in their artists make the investment on artist development and media training.”

Over the past few years, a bevy of entertainers have benefited from either Mr. Murray’s media training, damage control campaigns, media consulting and/or artist development. Gospel sensation Brent Jones, actress Vivica A. Fox, author Dr. Rovenia Brock, ‘American Idol’ finalist Trenyce, jazz artist Marcus Johnson and actress-comedienne Kym E. Whitley are among a few of the entertainers that have gained from his invaluable expertise.

PR Advice for Students

I had a talk with my niece today about college, more specifically, what to expect after college – a career. Now, since she’s pursuing a communications degree – leaning towards advertising – I thought I’d give her a little advice. Since I’ve been there; done that.

I told her:

1. College is not just about getting a degree. It’s about weaving a network of contacts that will land you a real job after graduation. So, get involved in stuff that will look good on your resume [like internships and volunteer activities]. No future employer just wants a person who just does the basics.
2. Weigh out the cost of college. Decide if $80,000 a year is a good investment when the job you’ll realistically get will pay $100,000 a year after many, many years in the business. Decide if there is another school where you could get the same academic benefits without the major expense. Google. Google. Google.
3. Apply to all the programs for minorities like the American Advertising Agency Association Minority Fellowship program. This program is a paid summer internship program in NY or Chicago with major ad agencies (room and board are included). Major competition but major experience.
4. Make a list of 10 questions you’d like to ask a senior executive in the field of advertising. Write an intro to them – tell them who you are, how you admire their work and why you’d appreciate some advice and information from them. Email them or call them for a 15 minute “informational interview.”
5. Don’t be afraid if you don’t have a “normal” college career. Some kids finish in four it’s not a race. You are done when you’re finished. Getting off the beaten path may mean that you are going a different trail to lead others. It’s time to march to your own beat and not try to keep up with others. It’s your life – craft it and create the life you want.

After my little talk and instruction, I finally said, “If I were you….” She listened and said, “Thank you. No one has ever given me such guidance about my career. No one has really told me the real deal about relationships, contacts and how to really build a career. You are so willing to introduce me to so many contacts in the field. I’m so excited. I don’t feel so lost any more.”

I said, “Ok, sweetie, I love you, that’s what family is for.” And off I went to the new Tyler Perry movie, “The Family That Preys.” (By the way, Tyler just might be family too – regardless, we have to support our own and help others achieve their dreams. That’s what Christians do.)

Write a Press Release Write a News Release, Press Release Tip #13

Write a Press Release Write a News Release, Press Release Tip #13
Hyperlinks (or links)

The sixth part of a press release? The hyperlinks, or links. They can be scattered throughout the press release, and I've highlighted the links in the press release below in yellow. I'm devoting an entire lesson to these because they're so important.

Here's why:

1. The search engines consider inbound links to your website one of the most
important factors in determining the "importance" of your site and where on
the list it will place your website when somebody does a search. So the
more links back to your own website, the better. When you post press
releases online and include a link back to your own website, it helps your
website's ranking. But when many of other people either reprint your
press release or write about it, and include the link back to your website,
that improves your ranking even further.

2. Links take people where you want them to go. You can link to things like
your bio, product pages at your website, free articles at your website, or
any other place that includes information that's too long or in-depth to
include in the press release.

3. Links can also bring people directly into your sales funnel.

Include no more than about a half-dozen links in each press release because you don't want your readers to get sidetracked and miss the call to action.

Also, be sure every link opens in a new window so your readers are able to return to the press release and continue reading each time they click on a link.
