Many, many moons ago, I worked in marketing and public relations (PR). I distinctly remember feeling a rush the first time I heard a TV news anchor say words into the camera that I had written in a press release. I couldn't believe it. I shared something I was passionate about with the media and they ran with it—nearly word for word.
The next rush came a few years later as I nervously stood in front of a reporter and cameraman, microphone held inches from my face, about to share a story I truly believed in on regional television. My legs were shaking and I'm fairly certain I was sweating.
Despite my nerves, I thoroughly enjoyed sharing information with those who might find it useful and quickly learned that PR was the perfect vehicle.
While I'm on the other side of things now—writing for publications to which I used to pitch business stories and creating platforms that receive pitches each day—I still use the knowledge I learned so long ago on a regular basis.
And you know what? I want to share that knowledge with you.
So, I've opened up registration for my latest e-course, Perfecting Your Pitch.
The course will be full of useful tips, templates and crucial information for any business owner who wants to share their story in a meaningful way. Whether you're interested in reaching out to traditional media (like TV and print publications) or new media outlets (like blogs and podcasts), I know those of you who run your own business will find the course helpful.
You can get all of the details here, but take note:
There won't be an early bird discount (the price is the lowest it will ever be for this course), the registration window is only two weeks long (I just can't wait to share!) and there is a limited bonus offer (a one-on-one brainstorm session with me valued at $75!) for the first five people who sign up.
[Update: The special bonus offers mentioned above are completely sold out!]
If you're interested in learning more about the course and how PR can work for your business, now's the time!
