Get all the benefits of a PR consultant for the price of a pizza

access expert knowledge and proven tips on a regular basis so you can spend more time and money on making yourself a success

Building a business or a personal brand is a real struggle. There just isn't enough time in the day to accomplish everything you want in your own business, let alone take on extra tasks like getting the attention of the media. The benefits of breaking through with the media are massive. It's by far the best way of reaching a huge audience quickly. But succeeding with the media can take time. No-one can learn all the tricks of the trade overnight, especially with the ever-developing world of online media.

A lot of people try to break through via the media in fits and starts. They try one strategy and quickly give up when it doesn't pay off immediately - not surprising when they've got the day-to-day management of a business or new project to contend with.

They realise the power of the media, but can't afford a dedicated media consultant or PR agency and don't have the time to learn how to become a media expert themselves.

What these people would benefit from is a site that updates its members on the expert media opinion they need to know about and also lets them contact the experts themselves so that they stay motivated, and stay up to date with all the media knowledge they need to make their businesses a success.

That's why we've created a dedicated members area for Deal With The Media.

What people are saying about 'Deal With The Media with Sir Trevor McDonald'

dr cassidyI have enjoyed the most profound thorough and ultra professional media training. I took the option of 1-on-1 training via skype. The understanding of my work with celebrities and social networking facilitated a very bespoke media session imbued with the highest level of critical analysis that has really enhanced my media career in television. My trainer took a very tough perspective in his approach and questioning style that really developed my own responses to well seasoned journalists - a solid grounding for cutting edge television work. I strongly recommend this site. ★★★★★

Tom_Davies 75X78I wanted to get an all-round tuition on dealing with the media as I know I will face a great variety of media interviews in the next few years and need to reach a wide variety of people. It's inspiring to be taught by such experienced journalists. I've learned how to control any interview I give and now know how to target my audience in every media appearance. I'm now making strides with social media too. ★★★★★
