There is one aspect of running a business that doesn't get talked about nearly enough, and that's public relations (PR) and mainstream media. It's also something that I don't teach, and that's because, hey, I don't know it. But I have someone on the show today who is a media and PR wizard—Christina Nicholson, from MediaMavenandMore.com, and she's about to deliver a masterclass in business PR.
I think it's safe to say that most of us want more media exposure, we just have no idea how to go about getting it. Well, Christina's about to give us the rundown, which is good because the media and PR world changes super fast. Christina was on the show just two years ago, and she's already back because she has so much new information to share.
Whether you're just starting out or you have a reputable brand that you know could benefit from better exposure, you owe it to yourself to get out there and start driving traffic to your website through media and PR. As Christina says in the episode, don't be afraid to promote yourself and put yourself out there. The worst that can happen is people say no.
I'm so thrilled to have Christina back on the show today, so don't miss out—put that phone in your pocket and let's get started!
