Send your press kit when an editor, publisher, or producer wants to know more about you.
3. Newsletters Offline. Donít forget that a whole world exists offline. Locate newsletters or smaller print publications offline and submit articles. This can be a very dynamic way to increase your exposure as well as add to your press kit. You can locate newsletters in your subject area by visiting local university library reference section. Ask for a directory of trade newsletters and do your research. Once you have been published, itís easier to step up to larger publications. Fame starts small and then snowballs onto itself.
4. Speak Up! Yep, thatís right. Start giving speeches on your area of expertise. Start locally at civic clubs and local educational programs. Then find local talk radio shows and make your case to producer. Itís surprising how many talk radio shows are actively looking for new speakers. Once you have achieved Talk Radio, opportunities will start coming to you.
5. Publicity Pitches: Put together several dynamic article ideas. Just ideas, not actual article. This is called a Publicity Pitch. Take those ideas and then pitch them to editors of targeted publications. This can work very well as it saves Editors time and puts outline right into their hands. As a past Editor I know how well this works. Editorís love ideas, especially ideas that are completely outlined and correct for their readership. This means donít send pet article ideas to cooking magazines. Send pet articles ideas to pet publications. Seems like a no brainer, huh? But youíd be amazed at what editors see that donít apply to their own publication.
Fame comes from planning and persistence. It has itís rejections, but if you can learn not to take it personally, it will eventually work. Remember, once you start, keep going. Once you stop, you have to start all over.
