Time: 2:45PM to 3:45PM
Whether or not we know each other, I’m going to guess we have at least one thing in common if you’re attending BlogWorld in October. We both want to make the most of it.
Many of you are coming great distances at great expense. You want to connect with other people in a way that you cannot connect online. And you want to walk away from each breakout session with inside information, well worth the investment of both your time and money.
I get it. I’m a blogger.
But I’m also a reporter. And for more than 15 years I have been involved in the decision making process that occurs in newsrooms across the country to determine who or what gets coverage each day.
It’s not always about the ‘best’ story. Or, contrary to popular opinion, the worst.
It’s not about the best press release any more than getting a job is about having the best resume.
In fact, when it comes to television, there are at least 7 different factors to be considered before we give a story the green light.
If you would like to leave BlogWorld with a full understanding of how newsroom decisions are made and, more importantly, ‘How to Get Media Coverage for Your Business or Blog’, join me Friday afternoon, October 15th, at 2:45.
I want to connect with you in a way we cannot connect online. And, I will do my best to make it worth your while.
(To make the most of our time together – pitch me now!! Let me know about your blog or business in the comments, and why you think it may be newsworthy. I will give you my feedback at BlogWorld!)
