Media Training Basics

Lots of people are marketing themselves by doing more radio, tv, and magazine interviews. Even blog interviews can bring more people to your website if done correctly.

Here is a basic tip sheet on media training:

 

  • Make sure the outlet is something your clients would read, watch and listen to.
  • Have your sound bites together and memorized
  • Have your website practiced so it easily rolls off your tongue
  • Listen to the show or read the column before you go on, so you know what to expect
  • If they take live callers, make sure your biggest fans call in also
  • Know how far to take a controversy
  • Know a little about the person interviewing you and refer to that during the interview
  • Be ready with a free give away to get people to your site
  • Throw in a little education, so that you get asked back

As you can tell, this is NOT enough media training to get you through an interview, it’s just a start. Media training is truly training with feedback!

Baltimore Hacker Space is Crowdfunding

This non-profit technology educational facility is home to many great projects. Projects that people can’t work on at home ( not everyone has a garage). It has been member funded in the past and provided tools and training for anyone wanting to build something special. Their expenses recently went up. Here is what happened in their words. “Recently, our landlord “discovered” a number water bills that he’d missed over the past two years, and he’s passing that expense on to us. So we’ve run the numbers, and our $5,000 goal will keep us financially stable and allow us to focus on community outreach for the next two years. As a 501(c)3 charity, we work to promote growth and learning in our community by providing people a place to learn and work in a positive and collaborative environment. We are sustained by our membership dues. However, we do open up all of our classes and events to non-members. We try to provide at least 2-3 days per week where non-members can come in and work with our facilities.”
It’s all about helping a community resource stay a community resource. You can sponsor a go-cart. You can get T-shirts and even book some time in the shop to work on your ideas. You can have a storm trooper visit you or even pick up a years membership.
