Do you have a story tip for the Business section?

The Business section is always looking for news stories that will be of interest to the readers.

The best way to report a tip is to provide as much information as you can, to help us promptly sort through the multiple leads that come in each day.

However, the more information you provide, the greater the chances are that we will better understand the significance of each tip reported to us, and be able to get back to you more quickly.

We greatly appreciate your leads, but cannot guarantee a story will result from each tip. And while we welcome press releases, The Signal does not reprint press releases in the newspaper.

To report a story tip, copy and paste the following questions into an email and supply as much information as you want. Send the email to:

Tipster's Name:
Tipster's Contact Phone No.:

1. Business Name:

2. Contact Name and Phone No.:

3. Brief Business Description: What is the primary business (describe what the business does, sells, produces, services, etc.)?

4. Facts or Key Points: Add any facts or key points that you think really sells this as a good business story.

5. Story Angle: Is there something about this business, or the owner's background, that makes for an interesting angle for this story? Or is there something about the business that makes it unique from other like-businesses in its field or that might also be located in SCV?

6. Website: Does your business have a website? If so, what is the URL address?

7. Photos: Lead stories are published with photos? Do you have any photos that relate to the business - either the business product or service itself, of the physical location of the business such as a store, the owners, a special event, etc? If you do, attach a photo to the email in jpeg format.

8. Caption: If you do submit photos provide a description of what a reader would be looking at in the photo(s).
