Feed the Media Training for Resume Writers & Career Coaches

Insights from a reporter, magazine editor, TV producer, and PR professional on how resume writers and career coaches can get themselves featured on television, in newspapers, magazines, and online media as a free or low-cost way to attract your ideal clients.

The media is hungry for stories to help their readers and viewers in their careers. Feed them!

Get more one-to-one clients, attract listeners to your podcast, launch your book, get more readers for your blog, promote an event, recruit members for your LinkedIn group, or just position yourself as an expert! Publicity can do all these things — and more! And it doesn't have to cost you a cent. This training will show you not only WHAT to do, but HOW. 

  • Ever wonder why some career professionals are featured on TV or in magazine articles — but you're not? 
  • Want to learn specific strategies to get newspapers and magazines to write articles about YOU?? 
  • Learn WHAT to do and HOW to do it — for free or at a very affordable cost. 

The training includes recordings of four webinars (originally recorded in August/September 2016), plus handouts, including templates, checklists, and cheat sheets to help you implement the training immediately.
