Episode 75: How to get featured on the local and national news Aug 30, 2011.
If you’re self employed it’s extremely important to pay attention to branding yourself and positioning yourself as the expert at what you do. Today I welcome career coach Joel Boggess at 4pointscoaching.com to the show to share how he was able to position himself as an expert on both local and national news stations. Joel has been on tv and radio over 30 times, so he’s got a lot to share on this subject.

- Joel shared some slides for this conversation with me. In a matter of a few weeks, these slides will be part of a class he will be selling but for our listeners he has graciously agreed to share them for free. free publicity copy
- Joel breaks the process of getting free exposure down to a few key points:
- Understand the media needs you.
- Connect with media personalities and build relationships with them
- Media people are overworked and underpaid, so when you can help them do their jobs, they’ll be grateful.
- Find newsworthy events, share them with your media contacts, and offer to comment on that.
- Create a system (isn’t that the solution for everything?)
