Introduction to Jason’s Marketing Primer


Hi. I’m Jason Reynolds. I’m a veteran reporter and business expert. My blog will focus on marketing, publicity, communicating, and in general, how to relate to others.
What are my credentials? I have worked at various media outlets for about 15 years as a reporter, editor and designer. I have written Web-based training materials for business owners and reported on business news for over six years. My undergraduate degree is in communications. I earned an MBA in January 2010 from Bryan College, which focused on international business.
Here’s my mission statement: I’ve seen a lot of people who needed help communicating their ideas to others. These ideas may involve spreading word about an upcoming event or publicizing a new business or new product. Other people may be looking for tips on relating to others in the workplace. Jason’s Marketing Primer is here to help people meet these needs.
The idea for Jason’s Marketing Primer was born after I spoke to Dave Ramsey at an event that I covered as a news reporter. Mr. Ramsey is well-known for giving great financial and business advice to people. I’d like to thank Mr. Ramsey for his advice on starting a blog that focuses on some of my strengths, which include communications, marketing, publicity and business administration.
The name for the blog came to me pretty quickly. But I checked the definition of primer because I normally thought of primers as books used by elementary students. Merriam-Webster.com says primers are teaching books, as well as a small book used to introduce a subject and “a short informative piece of writing.” Thank you, Merriam-Webster.
Please check this site for regular updates. My first blog will list the basics of how to write a press release. I’ve seen good and bad press releases during my career as a reporter and editor. Catching a journalist’s attention is hard, but I’ll give you some tips to improve your chances.
God Bless you.
Jason Reynolds
