Good basic info for someone just learning how to pitch the media.
Loved this class because it was short and to the meat of the class. The actions were very "doable" and I feel like I can take what I learned and immediately put it into action that will result in benefits for my business.
If you only have five minutes then watch the Q&A with A. Jacobs. There is some great advice on how to break a story!

I am a published writer, publicist, and online marketing specialist with 4 years experience in Marketing Communications.

I am successful at creating website sites, familiar with search engine optimization, producing high quality content, and managing marketing campaigns. Having worked in the promotions department at Channel 6-CW News and NBC 7 San Diego, I know how to network with the media, identify quality content, and follow the latest trending. 

My goal as a teacher on Skillshare is to share with my students both traditional and untraditional ways an individual can be successful in the marketplace. I share with my students my personal success stories as well as provide statistics and resources they can apply in their own business.

I hope to inspire others to CREATE something new, SEE something new and DO something new.

Stay Inspired,
