Business professionals have to get creative if they want to stand out in today’s media climate. And what’s more creative than stealing the news and making it your own? That’s right, it’s called Newsjacking. The term comes from a well-known marketing strategist, David Meerman Scott, in which you inject your own opinion into a breaking news story in real time. It’s a great way to show the public what you find important and generate coverage for yourself and your business.
