What we’re talking about
Putting Your Ego Aside
Know, Like, Trust Factor
It’s Time To Pitch Yourself
Pitching More Than Just Yourself
When it comes to pitching yourself to media outlets, Christina reminds us that it’s not about pitching yourself per se or your product. It’s about content and stories that a media outlet can use to educate and entertain their audience. Simply pitching yourself to a journalist does not make their job easier and it certainly will not land you a spot on TV.
Being Known As The Expert
Christina mentions the “Know, Like, Trust Factor” as something that you need to build in order to be known as the expert. Whether it’s a year from now when someone remembers you from Instagram or the fact that you know all there is to know about online courses, you have to build that reputation and being promoted on various media outlets will definitely help propel you to that next level. Once people see you as the expert, they’ll seek out your product and content. Pitch your expertise and not yourself.
Finding The Right Mindset
Everyday you see people portrayed as experts in the media, when truly they are not. Christina reminds us that it’s all about your mindset and if you are ready for business and are good at what you do, then you are certainly ready to pitch yourself to media outlets.
