Guidelines for PR Agencies

Thank you for your interest in Developing Telecoms. We appreciate your desire to publish content on behalf of your clients on our Portal. However, before adding us to your database and sending your press releases we ask you to note the following, if for no other reason than to avoid disappointment:

  • Please send announcements by email only,within the body of the email, not as an attachment. In particular do not send us PDFs - do you really think we have time to retype your announcement in full?
  • A great image will increase the chances of your announcement being used. But please make sure you have the image copyright owner's permission to use it first. Send images by email as an attachment (not embedded in a Word document) or provide links for us to download them. 600 x 450 pixels @ 72 dpi is our default size. Any smaller and they are no use.
  • Please do not waste your time and ours by phoning to ask if we are going to use your press release. If you have emailed it to the correct address we have got it. A phone call will not influence whether it will be used. Multiple phone calls could certainly influence whether we will use it and you won't like the answer!
  • Developing Telecoms covers Emerging Markets, as in geographic areas such as Africa, not new technologies such as 5G, although there is a huge amount of interest in new technology including 5G in emerging markets. Please do not send us news about things that are happening in Western Europe, the USA etc... Do your homework!
  • Developing Telecoms is a News Portal which means we cover news. White papers, case studies, thought leadership articles, executive interviews, exclusive briefings and the like are not news, they are marketing. Our readers like to read all these and more but you or your client do have to pay to have them distributed to our audience. Just like you, our staff need to be paid and it costs a lot to operate a high quality news portal with the reach and influence we have.
