Techno Granny Interviews Techno Professionals

Interviews on topic with users of 21st Century technology to get you to use it also.

Great interview with Shawne Duperon on "Professionals with Impact" UPCOMING SEMINAR WITH SHAWN

“Romancing the Media: How to Get a Second Date”
Tele-seminar, Feb 11, 2008

Mark your calendars for my next teleseminar:
“Romancing the Media: How to Get a Second Date."

I’m teaming up with business guru and customer
service expert Lori Vest.

You’ll discover a unique approach to long-term
and long-lasting media coverage: It’s all about
the romance!

Through hilarious analogies of dating in the 21st
century, We’ll teach you how to approach media
like a successful dating campaign. Your goal in
love? To find your soul mate! Your goal in
media? To create as many strong media
relationships as you can, so that you get ongoing
free coverage. Ironically, the same principles
apply to both love and media!

The biggest mistake you can make on a first date
is to push your own ideas, goals, and successes
on your unsuspecting romantic prospect. The same
holds true for media. The biggest mistake you
make while pitching is being completely focused
on YOUR story, YOUR product or YOUR service.

In this content-driven tele-seminar, you’ll learn
how to court the media and create long-term,
long-lasting relationships that will generate
incredible free coverage for years!

You’ll also learn:

-How to pitch the perfect story
-The elements you must pitch so the media fall in
love with YOU
-How to create a one-stop media location for any
-How to use food to get coverage
-Why you must always ask for permission to pitch
-How to get more than a minute of airtime for
your book, product or service
-How to piggyback off of local and national
-How to piggyback using USA Today, the best
resource for studies
-The big differences between broadcast versus
-Three mistakes you don’t want to make when
romancing a media contact

The one-hour tele-seminar is Feb 11, 2008, 7PM
EST The cost is $39.95. Click here to sign up.
