After we shot the video Janneke shared some additional tips with me.
1) You Don’t Have to Know Everything
Knowing a specific part about your industry is more than enough. You do not have to know everything in order to be interviewed about a topic. Make the story about what you do know.
2) Have an Opinion
People are interested in hearing from people who take stand on an issue. Don’t be afraid to have an opinion and share it.
3) Make it Easy for the Journalists
When you contact journalists be brief and concise. They are busy and need to know quickly if your story is right for them. Pick out the juiciest part of your story and share that. Make it easy for journalists to pay attention to you.
I hope these tips have inspired you to take action to get yourself in the media.
