Let's face it.
We've ALL sent a 16 paragraph email and that moment after we've hit the send button on this potentially life-changing email, we've wondered silently to ourselves:
"Should I have sent that? Was that a little too much?"
(Spoiler: YES, IT WAS TOO MUCH, NOW I WANT TO THROW MY LAPTOP LIKE A DISCUS INTO A LAKE)
I'm so selfishly excited about this episode of Become More Compelling Radio that I can barely contain myself.
My guest Talia Koren (@thetalillama) and I talk about how to reach out to influencers in a way that respects their time and makes it 10x more likely that you'll receive a response.
This is especially helpful if you want to:
Pitch media to get your side business off the ground. Get a new job in a new field. Reach out to an expert and ask for advice.
The skill set of being able to reach out to people in an effective way is a force multiplier for your life. Learn it and use it.
In this episode you'll learn:
12:26 - How most people approach media outreach and what you can do instead.
24:10 - How to reach out to individual influencers.
41:22 - The structure of a good outreach email. (Subject line, body, PS)
Talia also has a free resource for BMC listeners: 3 Teardowns of standard media pitches.
