Sell a Honeymoon from Hell Story – How it Works

This week we helped Talk to the Press client Natasha sell a honeymoon from hell story.

Natasha contacted Talk to the Press by filling out a story form on our website. Within 24 hours, our senior reporter Courtney Greatrex telephoned her.

Courtney then managed her story from the very first phone call to placing the story in the media. She sold it to publications including the Mail Online, the Guardian and the Daily Express.

Honeymoon Disaster

Natasha and her husband Ali had saved £7,000 to go on their dream honeymoon to Las Vegas. However, when the couple landed in Los Angeles, they were detained for 26 hours before customs officials booted them out of the country. There was no explanation or reason given.

The couple believe that the harsh treatment was because Ali, a successful estate agent from Enfield in London, is Muslim and of Turkish heritage.

The experience was clearly traumatic and fresh for Natasha and the interview was sensitive. Natasha and Ali wanted to raise awareness of their treatment and warn other honeymooners about the behaviour of US customs officials.

Courtney wrote up their story and contacted editors at the Mail Online, the biggest English language news site in the world.

She negotiated a great fee for Natasha and Ali. The Mail Online placed the story at the top of their site – in a spot known as the ‘banner’, reserved for their most-read stories.

It became a viral sensation – and The Sun, Metro and the Guardian. Each paid to feature the news story on their own sites.

Print newspapers also ran the story including the Guardian, the Daily Mail and the Daily Express among others. Courtney negotiated a fee for each publication. Therefore ensuring that Natasha and Ali can afford a luxury honeymoon to make up for their Las Vegas let down!
