Promotions run by Mail Newspapers in the past two weeks have driven a sales uplift of more than 200,000 additional copies, the publisher has said. Giveaways have included a Proms CD and giant Premier League wallchart, as well as the inclusion of style pull-outs and an unseen Princess Diana photo album. A spokesman for the titles said: “We continue to invest in the quality journalism, features and supplements that loyal Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday readers love.
A retailer has been left out of pocket by News UK after receiving credit for Times vouchers based on the old price, despite the recent increase. Kamal Thaker, of Stop Show News in Edgware, sent a weeks’ worth of vouchers in advance to the publisher on 17 April before the 20p cover price change for the weekday and Saturday editions of The Times kicked in on 22 April. However, he was only credited the amount he would have received based on the old pricing.
Retailers face the prospect of sourcing a new postcard and calendar supplier after the UK’s oldest publisher of the products announced a proposal to cease trading. In a letter sent to customers, J Salmon, which was founded in 1880, blamed the proposal on “increasingly challenging trading conditions”, as well as a lack of new family members joining the business.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
