5 Ways to Increase your Chances of Attracting Publicity and Media Interviews

Lately, I've heard so many women say that they would LOVE to be on TV, be in magazines, be on podcast shows, hosting their own events and the list goes on. I experience this type of success every year in abundance! In fact, just the other day my producer sent me the footage of the NEW SHORT FILM that I featured in! I am so excited, I played a small role but it was just so wonderful to be part of the film esp as it wasn't planned! The film comes out in Feb 2017 so I will keep you posted with the details.

Things like this can happen to you too if you TRULY want it bad enough, but wishing is not enough, you simply have to combine your faith with some serious action!

So if you want some ideas on how to make your dreams come true in 2017 then HIP HIP HOORAY!

Here are a few things that will increase your chances of Attracting Publicity and Media Interviews for your Brand: 

1) Create a Media Page on your Website:
One of the reasons why some Girl Bosses have less publicity than they would expect is because they have no Media or Press page on their website! This is a hindrance because firstly it shows that you are hiding your publicity or you don't have any. Secondly, it demonstrates that you are showing up as an amateur and that you truly don't want any media recognition for your brand. So if you have been struggling to get some MEDIA BUZZ or powerful media interviews now you know what the problem is.   

2) Keep Posting Content Regularly: 
I recommend blogging, making videos on YouTube/Instagram or podcasting weekly, or bi-weekly! (You don't want a situation where a journalist or a reporter visits your blog or your YouTube channel and see very few posts) they will think that you are inconsistent and it might make the media change their mind about booking you for an interview. If you want to go to the next level Media wise, step up your game. 

3) Create a Professional Showreel or an Advert: 
Hire a Videographer to do this for you, it should be HIGH QUALITY. Having a professional showreel or an Advert can really set you apart and make your brand POP :-) It shows that you have invested in yourself and that you are determined to have more opportunities to shine on camera, stage etc. You can also create an Introduction video (telling everyone who you are, what you do, share your story and contact info etc) also mention hat you are highly interested in speaking gigs and media opportunities (you get what you ask for!).   

4) Ask for Media Opportunities Consistently: 
Speak to friends, family, colleagues and high profile people that could potentially connect you to good opportunities and pitch to the Media. So many of my friends or people that I know have recommended me for media interviews such as Podcast Interviews, TV work, Singing Performances and so much more! But you have to let people know that you are on the look out for opportunities and when the connect you. Take the opportunity seriously. Avoid turning down small opportunities because it might be a TEST! "If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones" Luke 10: 16

5) Have Lots of High Resolution Photos (Fresh and New): 
Keep going for photo shoots and keep posting new photos of you at events, up to big things in the world, photos of you working in your business i.e. Coaching a client, Speaking at a workshop. Have a variety of photos, lots of head shots, mid-length shots and full-length images! Have photos of you in a variety of locations too such as in different cities or states...not just on your desk! Be creative.

The Media are usually 10, 20 or even 100 times more likely to be interested in your brand if you show yourself to be a people person! So group photos are VITAL for your Instagram, Twitter, FB page and even a few sprinkled on your website. Posting photos of you supporting charity events, with young people, with high profile people/celebrities/influencers is exactly what the media takes into consideration before featuring someone.

And that is IT fabulous! Let me below which tip you have found to resonate with you the most!
