  A press release about the impending release of your product that will dominate the world is ready and you've compiled a 300-page press list. You also have a plan of other innovative ways to promote the launch and to get as many people possible to come watch the launch online, use your product and/or write articles about it. Think outside the box here and feel free to collaborate with other teams or call in favors from partners or friends that are CEO of Fairfax or design the google algoritm.
