How to get sources quickly and easily?

Are you working on your Chinese New Year feature, and looking for materials from hotels, restaurant, fashion & beauty brands? Are you planning a series of stories related to technology, banking, business, and seeking commentary from experts?  

What's Media Request service? 
Telum's Media Request service helps you write stories better and faster. It is like a quick call out to the PRs and Marketing communities if you are looking for interviewees / experts' opinion / spokespersons / collaboration / insights / pitches for specific stories. 

Three steps to get the right sources...
1. Share with us the topic you are working on
2. We can come up with a snippet of your request for your approval before we share it with PR professionals
3. PR will contact you directly with what you need
Submit your media requests here.

Since the launch of the service, we have been getting numerous Media Requests daily and helping journalists get the story done. Here is what they say about Media Request services.

Allan Tan, Group Editor-in-Chief, CXOCIETY
"For the better part of our media titles, FutureCFO, FutureIoT and FutureCIO, I have used social media and email to encourage engagement with PR agencies and PR professionals to reach out to our readers. In recent times I have started to use Telum Media to extend those editorial opportunities.
 
I continue to be pleasantly surprised when I get inquiries or pitches from the PR community following postings of media requests via Telum Media. I am grateful for the outreach enabled by Telum."

Fraser Li, Senior Reporter, Hong Kong Economic Times 
"The Media Request service provides me with the most convenient and effective way to generate news stories, especially in the era of COVID-19. Since we were advised to adopt the non-face-to-face method to interviews, our news sources are limited."

Lucas Cacioli, Managing Editor, Blockchain.News
"We have leveraged Telum Media’s connections in the past and we have been impressed by their ability to connect us with some of the industry’s most influential companies and personalities. While working with Telum, I have also been impressed by their ability to respond quickly to our requests." 

Simon Yuen, Senior Journalist, Marketing Magazine (Hong Kong)
"Media Request helps me reach out to potential interviewees when I need third-party comments and insights. After launching the blurb, I usually can get several pitches, and they can really offer the materials I need. I would say it's useful to let people know where to contribute. Sometimes they offer other angles that I haven't explored too."

Forina Fu, Business Reporter, Sing Tao Daily 
"The Media Request service helps me make engagement with the communications industry, and I'm able to get some new contacts. Telum connects me with experts quickly especially when I am preparing an in-depth story. It is very useful."
