- A tip on how to get press for your small business is make a list of blogs, online new outlets, local newspapers, and find as many contacts as you can to reach out to about your business. In an email, tell them about your business, how you got started and what you sell. Then provide professional photos of yourselves, as well as, the fashion truck.
