When I win my Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award for “Most Appearances By an Expert on Morning Television,” Geeta will be the first person I thank.” Eric Rogell
In the space of less than 3 weeks, I learned how to think like a producer, look for the “WHY NOW” factor, and how to effectively tell my story without it being all about ME. One huge tip Geeta passed on to me was that I had to make the information important and useful to the people at the receiving end. Otherwise, why would they care?!
I recently wrote my first pitch from scratch, and the experience was nowhere near as frightening as I thought it might be! In fact, it was uplifting and fun telling my story in my own words, totally understanding that I had to share useful stuff – not just talk about the products. I now feel I have the skills to tell those value-added stories that are relevant to my products, which will keep my brand visible and interesting for the long-term.
Let’s face it – learning how to get media exposure is a must for small businesses like mine, since I think I can safely say we don’t want to stay small forever, and media exposure = massive exposure – all at once!
Choosing Geeta’s program has been one of the very best investments I’ve made in my business since day one. Thanks Geeta!”
