Here comes the fame, now I need the fortune...


It's finally happening! Along with the dream of having a card published through Hallmark, It's been a dream of mine to be on the Paula Sands Live Show (a local news and event show) and I am going to fulfill that dream next week! This morning, I sent out my press release about the Hallmark Mother's Day Card contest to all the TV channels and radio stations. About 30 minutes later, I started gettting emails and phone calls - I couldn't believe it!

I had been hesitant about sending out any PR because I thought that they would think that it wasn't a big deal, but now I wished that I had contacted them sooner. The first call was from PSL's producer and we had a great chat and I'm scheduled to be on their show on the 31st-boy am I nervous but excited!
After talking to him, I received another call from a local radio station and they taped our interview right then and there. Would I be able to tell you what I said during the interview? Heck no, I'm still in shock but it's going to be aired tomorrow morning- woo hoo! They also said that they would put something on their website too, so I will post it when it goes up. THEN, after that phone call, I received an email from Channel 4 news saying they would pitch the idea to their people.

Now, if I can just get the newspaper people to contact me for a story. Are you there, Newspaper People? Maybe they're afraid to face my four year old after seeing that look on her face. Don't worry, she doesn't bite- she's got a mean left hook though.

omgosh, how exciting! Huge congratulations to you!

I think press releases are a great marketing tool. I used to use them all the time when I had my custom digi business.

Enjoy your fame!

that's so cool. Our newspaper has a section that you can submit "local happenings" to. Check yours out, maybe they have the same thing.
