Finally! A Shortcut to Free Publicity for Your Tax Resolution Business All Year Long
Imagine yourself on your local TV station’s evening news. You’re sharing valuable tips on how individuals and small business owners can settle their debt with the IRS.
At the end of the 60-second interview, your web address appears on the screen, where viewers can get a list of more tax tips.
The next day, your phone starts ringing. Viewers don’t only want your tips. They want to talk about hiring you to represent them before the IRS.
Here’s the best part. While other businesses spent thousands of dollars buying ads on that newscast, you paid nothing for that air time. You sent a press release to the station. It included all the pertinent facts that persuaded the producers to feature you on the air.
That kind of free publicity is priceless!
It’s almost as though the TV station is giving you its stamp of approval. Stories about you, your expertise and your tax resolution business don’t only have to appear in the media a month before tax filing deadline. They can appear 12 months a year. I can show you how.
Why Should You Listen to Me?
I’m Publicity Expert Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound.
I’m shown here with Michael Rozbruch (left) and Larry Lawler after I spoke at their ASTPS Marketing & Technology Extravaganza in January 2015 in Orlando. My session was on how tax resolution specialists can generate thousands of dollars in free publicity on TV and radio, and in magazines and newspapers, while everyone else is buying ads. I was one of the highest rated speakers over three days.
They invited me to attend because they know I’m a former newspaper editor who has been on the receiving end of thousands of press releases and story pitches for more than two decades. I know exactly what journalists want and what it will take to get their attention.
