Hello and Welcome!
As entrepreneurs, writers and creatives we pour our hearts into our work and deserve to share it with the world. There are so many people out there who are just waiting to know about and benefit from our work and it's up to us to spread the good word.
There's no shortage of ways to market ourselves these days, but none are as effective or fun as publicity. I know it may sound scary to you, but it truly is easier than you think.
Being in the media can help you boost revenues, build platforms, create loyal followings, land book deals, speaking engagements, not to mention - gives you credibility no other marketing can come close to.
I know first-hand what a game-changer PR and publicity can be. It took my company Savvy Miss from a no-name to a Forbes Top 100 Website for Women and multiple W3 award-winner in less than two years of launching.
And I share all of my insider secrets with you in the DIY PR Course!
I've always loved the Chinese Proverb "Give a woman a fish and you feed her for a day. Teach a woman to fish and you feed her for a lifetime."
That's why I created this program, so you can be a guest on podcasts and radio shows, be featured in online publications, contribute guest posts and even get in newspapers, magazines and TV without having to spend $10,000+ on a publicist.
The DIY PR Course is easy-to-follow and jam-packed with value. (It's not one of those programs that goes on and on. You'll learn everything you need to know and nothing you don't!)
It's PR and publicity made simple. And by the way, it really is easier than you may think.
I look forward to welcoming you to the program!

Should I join if I'm not good at marketing myself?
Few people are born great marketers. It takes know-how and tools to become comfortable putting yourself out there.
This course is a step-by-step and you'll learn everything you need to know to market your business or product. Even if you think you're not good at it or you've never done it before.
You'll also receive tools to help you build confidence and become comfortable putting yourself out there. 🙂
Is it strange to pitch the media myself and not have a publicist do it? Will journalists think less of me or not take me seriously?
Not at all. All that matters to a journalist is the person they're working with knows how to pitch and deliver. (Everything you need to know to work with the media is in this course.)
Also, a good publicist charges $10,000+ minimum for three months with no guarantee of results and has multiple clients.
At the end of the day no one knows or cares about your work as much as you do so no one will represent you as best as you can.
How much time should I set aside?
The average video lesson is 25-minutes and with worksheets you're looking at 1-2 hours per module. You have lifetime access to the course and can completely go at your own pace.
