You asked, we delivered. 

We provide two training workshops for individuals and teams on strategy and best practices in public relations, influencer and content marketing. 

Publicity S.T.O.R.M

Do you think your business or organization is too ordinary to get media attention?  Think it’s too hard to be your own publicist? This training shows you how to firmly establish yourself as the “go-to” expert in your market and get pre-sold prospects to your site.

In this training session you’ll learn the system for:

·       Stories – simple ideas to generate 15 types of stories that get you media attention

·       Target – where to find hundreds of publicity opportunities right under your nose

·       Offer – how to easily offer your story to the media without having to write complicated press releases

·       Resistance – tackling the common fears and misperceptions that stop you from getting the publicity your organization deserves

Once you learn this system and use the resources we provide you, you will have an easy-to-replicate process you can follow at team meetings to generate your PR-worthy stories and get the word out there about your product, service or organization.
