This is the secret to NOT getting your ideas stolen, or if they DO STEAL, they won’t get good use out of it.
Join me and special guest Ivy McQuain
We will talk about Media and getting in and making it pay off for you. It’s not about being a free commercial. It’s about being an interesting part of the show! You will get to ask your questions too! It’s easy to get on the radio but what will you say when you get there? You need more than “Go buy my stuff!” Your story matters!
It’s not enough to be a great athlete; you must take the opportunity to promote your brand. Shows are a great way to do that. Even if you pitch and they don’t use you, you will be part of their database. That is what makes every pitch a home run. Unless you are clearly NOT a fit, you are in the database and have a chance that you will get a call. And when media calls, you show up.
Below is a real show looking for BMX-ers. You can pitch if you are a good fit, if you are not a good fit, you risk getting banned from their mailbox forever!
Go for it!
