Broadcasters who are looking for TV show guests, and journalists on the hunt for experts to interview, love sitting across from potential sources and listening to them pitch.
They can see the twinkle in your eye. They can hear the enthusiasm in your voice. They can interpret your body language. And they can tell by your handshake whether you come across as confident, or a wimp.
Sound unfair? Maybe.
But when thousands of people are competing for just a few coveted spots on big TV talk shows, or in major magazines and newspapers, you have to use every tool in your publicity toolbox to command attention.
One of the best, for those willing to make the investment, is The National Publicity Summit in New York City Oct. 17-20, where Steve Harrison will introduce you to more than 100 producers and journalists from America’s top media outlets.
Each attendee sits across from a journalist and pitches, but only after thorough training from Steve’s staff. You’ll learn how to identify the best story ideas that really resonate with journalists, and you can practice your pitch so you nail it when you’re sitting face-to-face.
So that each attendee can spend time with as many journalists as possible, only 100 people will be accepted, and you must apply. I promote this event as a paid affiliate because I’m well aware of the results.
Previous attendees have been featured in major media like ABC’s The View, CNN, the Today Show, Parade, Fox News Channel, Dateline NBC, CBS’ 48 Hours, Family Circle, Parents magazine, People magazine, ABC Radio Network, Parenting, Health magazine, Newsweek., Time, Maxim, the New York Post, Good Housekeeping, MSNBC and other top national media.
If, for some reason, the summit is closed out by the time your apply, your name could be put on a waiting list.
