Finding top-notch business leaders or individuals to contribute to your self-published magazine or show can seem challenging when you’re just starting out. 

How do you find people with great stories or lessons to share with your reader or audience? 

Do you have to pay them? What if you have limited funds?

Why would someone who is very successful take a chance on your brand-new project?

In this week’s video, you will learn about one of my insider secrets when it comes to self-publishing media: PR Firms.

PR Firms are hired by successful leaders to help them communicate their stories and get those stories placed in media outlets like magazines and shows. PR Account Coordinators need to know publishers like you because their performance is based on how many publications and/or shows they book for their clients.

Building relationships with PR Firms is an effective way to find contributors and it doesn’t cost you a dime!

The opportunity is there, but navigating all the steps in the publishing process can be daunting without the right support. 

People like Estephania featured below are why I continue to show up with helpful videos that can help you hit your goals.

This week’s video is a bit different from my typical format. I’m answering questions from the comments section of my channel personally and directly.
