Hello and welcome!
The DIY PR Course is an online self-study program designed to show you step-by-step how to be your own publicist and get featured in the media, so you can reach more customers or clients, earn credibility and make your work known.
The course includes 6 training modules with a video lesson and PDF workbook in each. (The average video lesson length is 30 mins.)
You'll also receive pitch templates, real examples of pitches the media said "Yes!" to and passed on, plus, an entire library of bonus resources.
Putting yourself out there isn't always easy and the program's also packed with empowerment and processes to help you overcome fear, doubt, judgement, criticism, or any fraud complexes that may be holding you back.
You get immediate and lifetime access to the entire program and can completely go at your own pace.
This course is the culmination of my years working in the media as an award-winning journalist and entertainment publicist for award-winning TV clients including American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance and Gilmore Girls.
They also happen to be the exact tools that are responsible for turning my company, Savvy Miss, into a Forbes Top 100 Website for Women and W3 Award-Winner for Best Lifestyle Website. It truly is PR and publicity made simple.
I look forward to helping you get in the media and share your work with the world.
I hope to welcome you to the course!

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. (Not to mention practice!)
The DIY PR 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 30-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.
What if I want to target media outside the United States?
Wonderful! The tools you'll learn can be used to get media attention anywhere in the world.
