Today, Ryan asks and William (self-proclaimed industry pain-in-the-ass) explains how to work with members of the press and media publications.
Here’s the thing: being published in the right outlet has the potential to change your life (at most), and give you a resource to share with your market (at least). Whatever your goal is, there are a few things to remember.
- Media are underpaid and understaffed. You will do the majority of the work. Do not send a publication unedited, unfinished ideas.
- They already have a plan. You have to work within it.
- Your idea has to be bigger than you, your ideas, or your business.
Tune in to listen to the full conversation and gain a deeper understanding of what you need to do to grab a spot in your publication of choice.
