So here are 4 of the more unusual places to uncover opportunities for media coverage and PR help.
1. Follow PublicSeek on Twitter to get media coverage opportunities.

2. HARO– or Help A Reporter Out–What they are looking for are experts. When a news story requires expert opinions you could be contacted and receive free press coverage–the trick is listing out your expertise so that a reporter will contact you for an interview. http://www.helpareporter.com/
4. Like Kickstarter, RocketHub is a crowdfunding platform. What makes RocketHub a little different is that they offers further opportunities to those who have successfully funded their projects in their program called LaunchPad Opportunities.
For their recent LaunchPad Opportunity: Be Almost Famous, RocketHub offered artists, entrepreneurs, musicians, filmmakers, theatre producers, designers, and other Creatives the opportunity to work with a top NYC publicist, Arien Rozelle. Arien has landed clients in The New York Times, Thrilllist, and Good Magazine. At the close of 2010, she was named one of “New York’s Top PR Firms and People: The Most Influential and Connected” by Marketing Company Sparkah.com. The winning submission to this LaunchPad received a consultation with Arien and the FeelingAnxious PR team. View the submission selected for the Be Almost Famous LaunchPad Opportunity here.
