Atlanta Writer Peter Stoddard Discovers a Talent for Global Press Releases

Peter Stoddard developed unique communication skills over the course of 2+ careers and 4 decades. He now offers those skills on behalf of clients large and small, exclusively via press release.

Cumming, United States - August 12, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Ever wonder where those headline links at the side of a favorite news media website come from? Someone writes the headline and the story to which the link connects. This is how the world consumes news today.

Newspapers hate to admit it, but few still read a paper version of their paper; even fewer subscribe. TV stations hate to admit it, but few regularly watch the morning or evening news. To combat these trends media outlets take messaging to their website, whether free to their audience or by paid subscription.

Atlanta resident Peter Stoddard recently discovered he has a knack for getting stories placed on major media outlet websites worldwide. At age 60 he calls it his 3rd career, though he confesses to innumerable “mini-careers” along the way.

Upon graduation with a marketing degree from the University of Georgia, Stoddard took a job with Atlanta’s Lanier Business Products as their extremely low paid corporate convention manager. He found himself in charge of major trade show exhibits, hospitality suites and black tie banquets. He’s quick to point out that “in charge” was a misnomer, as he was subordinate to virtually every other employee at any event. If someone’s rental tuxedo didn’t fit or a light kept flickering in the company booth, Stoddard was to blame. Even with that, he thrived on the energy at such events.

Next came a similar position with a division of Siemens. Same adventures and responsibilities, different company and industry. He then took a job with a vendor, moving to Chicago to open the company’s Midwest regional sales office. Thus summarizes career one, twenty years in conventions and corporate special events.

Stoddard has great stories to tell about career one.

Career 2 began with a move to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and entry into the real estate profession. Along the way he founded a vacation home rental agency and eventually hung out a shingle as broker of Dune Lake Properties, his own real estate firm. Early on, Stoddard was one of few agents who sent to his customers monthly email “bulletins”, general discussions of interest, often beyond local real estate. As his market transitioned from the bucolic Redneck Riviera to Emerald Coast to New Urbanist Highway, there was no shortage of trends to discuss – and great stories to tell.

Having just relocated back to his hometown Atlanta for the first time since 1984, in 2017 Stoddard secured a Georgia real estate broker license and began outreach to the “warm sphere” of friends with whom he maintained contact over the decades. Those constitute a whole lot of contacts, dating from grade school, to high school, his UGA fraternity, business associates and customers from event management and real estate.

Stoddard created a blog to chronicle the volume of research he performed to acquaint himself with all that has changed in Atlanta and North Georgia. He launched a LinkedIn group for graduates of his UGA fraternity in anticipation of the 2018 50th anniversary of their founding in Athens. He published articles to real estate websites and created his own, not only to promote his career interests, but as outlets to express his interest in … so many things.

Stoddard claims to be conversational on many topics, an expert on none. What fuels him is natural curiosity about broad ranging topics from colonial and Revolutionary War ancestry, to scuba diving, his sons’ school and extracurricular activities, volunteering, boating – and what his many friends are doing.

In May Stoddard had an epiphany in the form of advice from a mentor and legendary real estate agent:

“Everyone has a great story to tell. Tell it before the competition tells theirs.”

Stoddard took that mantra a step further. He realized everyone has not only one great story to tell, likely dozens or hundreds, whether they realize it or not. They simply need someone to tell those story(s) well. Thus began his entry into crafting press releases.

The first was one he wrote “for fun” on Lake Lanier’s Freedom Boat Club, where he is a member. The club’s excellence so impressed him that he thought the world needed to hear about it. Almost a year later the piece is still out there on media websites around the globe, from Georgia to Malaysia.

Recently came a release for Comfort Zone Portables, a leading provider of VIP sanitation services at concerts, festivals and corporate events across North America. The company founder is a high school friend who helped Stoddard get a summer trash collection job before his freshman year at UGA. That release got picked by 400+ media outlets, from CEO World Magazine to The DIVA Today.

A project coming up will be for a UGA fraternity brother who recently purchased a storied real estate brokerage in Northwest Florida, Stoddard’s old stomping grounds. Funny how things come full circle.

Hardly ready to suspend his young Georgia real estate practice, Stoddard’s mind races to imagine how he can merge writing into that career. While he and his team might help hundreds of customers buy and sell homes, helping many agents tell their stories will help thousands of customers buy and sell homes.

Stoddard already has several press release drafts on paper and in his head for a diverse range of friends whose businesses he has yet to contact. They need only to edit or approve the piece to see their story presented to planet earth within the week.

Everyone has a great story to tell. Stoddard can help them tell it well.

AP-NORC poll: Vegas shooting doesn't change opinions on guns

Oct 20, 2017

ATLANTA — A new poll finds that the slaying of five dozen people at a Las Vegas music festival did little to change American opinion about gun laws. In the survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 61 percent said the country's gun laws should be tougher, while 27 percent would rather see them remain the same and 11 percent want them to be less strict. That's similar to the results of an AP-GfK poll in July 2016. The new poll found the country divided much more evenly on whether restricting firearms would reduce the number of...

Juventus tops Champs League prize money table; Leicester 2nd

Oct 20, 2017

GENEVA — Beaten finalist Juventus topped the Champions League prize money table in receiving 110.4 million euros ($130.4 million) from UEFA last season. Leicester edged title-winning Real Madrid for second place in the list UEFA published on Friday because the English champion banked a bigger share of broadcasting rights money. British and Italian TV deals were more valuable than the Spanish rights, and were shared between fewer clubs than Spain's five in the competition. Leicester, which was eliminated in the quarterfinals, got almost 81.7 million euros ($96.5 million) from UEFA and Madrid earned just over 81 million euros ($95.7 million)....
