    Dear Members,

    One of the most successful ways we have increased our site's membership is by getting IL featured in a magazine (or newspaper or a website). If you are a contributor to a magazine or know some contacts in a news media, you can write to them requesting a write-up about IL in their magazine. Given the uniqueness and wide appeal of our site, lots of magazine find it news worthy and interesting to feature IL.

    Thanks Chitvish. These were our initial press coverage and provided us the much needed "initial thrust" to keep us going. We still get new members from these.

    Dear IL'ites, Press coverages are great ways to reach a lot of new members and I request all your help in this regard. If you contribute or know someone in a magazine/newspaper, please let us know. We would love to take your help. Needless to say, IL makes a great story for the magazine/newspaper as well. Many editors were thrilled that we contacted them about IL and were very impressed by the concept.

    Dear Members,

    I am helping IL with getting some good press coverage by getting IL featured in newspapers or magazines. If you have any contacts in any media, request you to please give me their contact details, so that I can follow-up with them further to get an article about IL published.

    As press coverage is the best possible way to increase our membership base, it would be a great help if any of you who has contacts in the media comes forward with this information.

    Please get back to me for any further details.

    Thanks,
    Geetha Satish

    Hi Vidhya,

    Thanks for showing interest in approaching the press media in your area.

    Yes, you can definitely use these two articles when you speak to someone from the press. If you want me to co-ordinate with them, please send me their contacts, and I will be happy to answer any other questions that they might have.

    Cheers,
    Geetha
