FREE WEBINAR: How to Get on TV

“How do I get on TV”

As a senior TV news producer for nearly 20 years that is a question I’m asked a lot.

Honestly it’s not as difficult as you would think.

You don’t have to have special credentials, you don’t have to have a PR person or have a huge social media following — but what you do need to know is what the media is looking for.

If you are trying to get on TV, in magazines, on radio, etc. sometimes it’s more about what not to do!

OMG – in my career I can’t even tell you how many bad pitches I’ve been sent through the years!!

Well actually – I probably could because I’ve kept them all in my “bad pitches” folder. 🙂

Sometimes you can tell that the core idea isn’t bad, but the expert or publicist just don’t know how to present it correctly.

So what are these pitches faux pas and pitfalls? Well that is something I can teach you.

Fab Find: PocketSuite Connects You With Small Businesses Nearby

A friend of mine is getting married and has been really into getting fit before the big day! I wanted to get her personal training as an engagement gift, but I don’t live near her so I struggled researching nearby gyms and reading several conflicting reviews on the internet. It was important to me to find the right person for her because I didn’t want to waste my money or her time. Then I discovered PocketSuite, the app that would solve my dilemma!

Track Packages and Spending With Slice

Life just got so much easier for me.  I’m constantly buying things online — especially now that I’m in full on holiday shopping mode.  Sometimes its hard to keep track what I’ve bought and when the deliveries will be made.  I don’t have a doorman and if there is alcohol in the package then an adult has to be home to sign for it.  And that isn’t always possible so either my husband or I end up stalking the UPS or FedEx truck.  But no more!

I’ve discovered Slice.com.  It’s the perfect away to keep on top of all your shopping and save money too. You can link it up with your email so the website and app will find all of your recent purchases and organize them for you.

Slice will tell you when the package is expected to ship, when it actually ships, where it is currently and when it’s supposed to arrive at your door.  There’s even customer service numbers and return policy information attached to each order.

Your history will show all the items that you’ve purchased and categorize them for you so you can track your spending. (This is useful eventho it’s a bit scary to see where all your money actually goes.)  And the coolest feature of all — you will be alerted if an item you bought went on sale and that merchant will issue a price adjustment if you ask.  That alone is worth signing up for Slice.com.

It’s free to sign up on the website and the app is also free.  I’ve been singing it’s praises ever since I found it.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.
