If you aren’t positioning yourself or your boss as an expert as part of your marketing campaign, you’re missing the chance to get thousands of dollars in free publicity. That’s because the media flock to experts. They quote them, put their photos on the covers of magazines and invite them onto their radio and TV talk shows. But exactly what constitutes expertise? Joan Stewart, also known as The Publicity Hound, will tell us what we need to do to be considered experts (she says it isn’t nearly as difficult as we might think). She’ll also tell us how to catch the attention of editors, reporters, TV talk show hosts and even bloggers so they start flocking to us. She worked in the newspaper business for 22 years and relied on thousands of experts over the years for story ideas, background and commentary. Joan will share the inside secrets of what kinds of experts the media want—and how your marketing efforts can reap huge dividends.
