- Developed your PR strategy but need guidance and a sounding board?

Getting amazing media coverage is challenging! You need to build relationships with journalists, understand what makes a story idea newsworthy, know when and where to pitch the idea…the list goes on.
Media coverage is essential for the success of any personal brand development and business growth (we know because we have done it for ourselves and our clients!)
- It can help you secure fundraising for a start-up
- It can increase sales of your book
- It can position your as an expert and leader in your field
- Best of all, it can lead to direct sales and new business opportunities.
Best all of, getting into the media is completely FREE. You don’t need to pay for Adwords, you don’t need a Facebook paid campaign…you just need to come up with newsworthy ideas and pitch them to journalists.
Sounds simple? Once you unlock the secrets to media success it is!
