Everyone is an Expert at Something
According to world renowned speaker, author, and media expertPeter Shankman, getting your face in the media is —without fail— the most beneficial way to promote yourself, your business, and anything else that you may want to share.
The benefits of a public appearance on TV and Radio are LIMITLESS.
Want to improve your credibility?
Enhance your biography?
A good reason to post a dapper profile picture of being interviewed by a national newstation?
TV and Radio producers are CONSTANTLY looking for new and engaging guests who can bring a unique perspective to their viewers.
Why not jump in and become one of the key players of this game? It’s not as hard as you think… as long as you follow the rules. As a producer of a widely popular weekly broadcast to more than 2.5 million listeners, I have to agree with Peter. EVERYONE IS AN EXPERT.
However, if you want to increase your chances of getting selected by the booking producers… you need to understand HOW the process works, get INSIDE the minds of the decision makers, and bypass the other 300 applications that they may have received THAT DAY.
Like anything else… Publicity is an ART FORM.

Call it the trifecta…
