One thing that many beginner entrepreneurs or small business owners struggle with when it comes to PR is pitching themselves.
Putting yourself out there and pitching your product or service that your extremely passionate about can be intimidating!
No one likes to be turned down and it can be a punch to the ego when you get a no.
But here’s the truth: you won’t get what you don't ask for. Sure, there's a possibility that you could deliver your best pitch ever and you get turned down, but so what?
Most people think that brands and businesses get mentioned in the media by chance. And while sure, that does absolutely happen, 90% of the time when a brand is in the media it’s because they went after it, not the other way around.
Join Public Relations Strategist Brittney Lynn and Journalist Alli Hoff Kosik for this free webinar where you'll learn exactly how you can start pitching irresistible story ideas to journalists that will secure media mentions for your business.
We live in a media-driven world, and having a strong strategy around securing media for the amazing products and/or services that you have to offer is going to translate into increased visibility and — of course — revenue.
