ExpertLatinos.com Launches Free Service Connecting Journalists with Latino Experts
New service offers Hispanics the opportunity of free publicity
Expert Latinos, a free subscription service that helps connect journalists with expert sources for their stories, announced last month the official launch of ExpertLatinos.com. The website serves as an invaluable resource for journalists and bloggers looking to rapidly identify and connect with Latino experts and sources.
For experts, small business owners and entrepreneurs, Expert Latinos is the perfect tool for those seeking free publicity and to gain exposure in the media.
“Expert Latinos is a much needed tool, not only for journalists, but also for Hispanic entrepreneurs, experts and small business owners looking to get exposure in the media,” said Paola Sanchez, co-founder of Expert Latinos. “This is the perfect free public relations tool to promote your business as a Hispanic professional and we’re happy to fill this void with Expert Latinos.”
Journalists, bloggers and media professionals can easily post a request on ExpertLatinos.com detailing the source they are looking to interview or quote in their story. The request is then distributed in a daily email alert directly to the database of Latino experts whom have subscribed to the free service. If the expert is a match, they then can respond directly to the journalist or blogger via email.
“We’re so excited to announce the launch of ExpertLatinos.com,” said Carmen Ordonez, co-founder of Expert Latinos. “Having worked as a TV producer and now as a blogger, I know first-hand the challenges reporters face when trying to find a source on deadline.”
Since its launch last month, Expert Latinos has already received requests from reporters from top Hispanic media outlets including Telemundo, EFE America, El Diario/La Prensa and La Opinion to name a few. The website, formally known as “Conectando Periodistas” first launched in 2012 in Spanish and has now relaunched in English to also help English-speaking journalists easily find Hispanic sources.
