When some friends and I were launching a non-profit, we turned to Whitney every step of the way, since then we've been featured in magazines, newspapers, radio interviews, tv interviews and honestly I don't think we could have done it without her! Thank you for this book!!!

As a small business owner and entrepreneur, I consulted with Whitney to attain media attention for my business, Color in Space. With my own communications background, I appreciated how Whitney's insights and guidance were always presented in such manageable and linear format meeting me right where I was. Her inspiringly positive, easy going, and can-do-anything presence makes her delivery easy to understand and left me feeling confident that of course I would receive media attention! Who wouldn't want to know about my color palettes?!

After getting published in a national magazine this year, I was delighted to find Whitney's handbook. It's been a number of years since we developed my initial media launch, so the handbook has been an exceptional resource to refine my plan for the next round. The presentation and progression of the book are as easy to apply as if I'm still sitting down receiving Whitney's reassuring coaching one-on-one. Now I know Whitney not only has a gift with communicating her PR skills as a consultant, but as a writer too!

This concise and easy-to-read workbook is just the thing to get small business owners excited - and confident - about pitching the media. Even with all my years of marketing experience, I was able to take away a lot from this short read. Keyes has a knack for breaking things down so that the steps are not only easy to follow, they are extremely feasible. As a brand consultant and author, I work with many small business owners who have to do everything themselves - but getting media attention is something they feel they can't do or something on which they need to spend a ton of money. Keyes reminds readers that treporters are human, and even offers tips on dealing with the fear of pitching them. Her inexpensive, tactical tips are a great reminder of how to tell a good story. I have recommended this book to many clients to help them see how fun and do-able pitching the media can be. A great "starter kit" for PR beginners.
