Episode 7: How to Get Known – Part 3: Go!

In this third part of the 4-part introduction to my Ready Set Go Speak! system for getting yourself out there and getting known, you’ll see if you’re good to Go 😊

By this phase, you’ve already defined, divined, and designed your brand, and you’ve also identified your ideal client (Phase 1: Get Ready ), plus your website, your headshots, and other marketing materials are all pulled together (Phase 2: Get Set).

Now you’re ready to reach out to the media! It’s time to pitch yourself to TV, radio, magazines, podcasts, influencers, and potential partners … But where do you start? Who do you talk to? What will they want you to do?

The answers to those questions and more are in this week’s episode, where I talk about: how to study the media, making sure your message is a match, where to start pitching, and how to make it easy for media contacts to say Yes. I also share real-world examples and success stories on how to ‘spin’ your topic to fit what’s in the news now … and more!
