Get paid to promote your book or blog

I earned more as an author when I was a paid freelance media spokesperson than nearly any year since.

Businesses that included RCA and the Soap & Detergent Association (SDA) paid me to be the “face” of their brands in product publicity campaigns.

Both had messages they wanted to get to a mainstream audience — for RCA, those messages related to new remote control technology and for the SDA, they revolved around using cleaning products properly.

As the author of the humorous WHY CAN’T A MAN BE MORE LIKE A WOMAN?, I had a reputation for bringing a light-hearted touch to the gender wars. Because the publicity campaigns of both businesses were built around gender differences, I was hired to bring a little help and humor to what can be a touchy subject.

For RCA, I offered advice on how to make certain that TV viewing habits didn’t damage relationships while sharing information about how new technology would reduce the remote control wars. For the SDA, I provided specifics about the importance of reading cleaning products labels while discussing how to get help with the housework.

Their PR firms got me interviews with media outlets around the country, including the “CBS Early Show” (here’s the transcript), The New York Times, many other newspapers and magazines, and countless morning drive-time radio talk shows. I benefited from free media training and, of course, the exposure for my (now sold out!) humor book.

  1. I am a Pet Blogger who does both Canine Book and Film Reviews at the blog. It is a niche i am carving out for myself, along with the standard Product Reviews. I have reviewed films for Disney (Spooky Buddies, FRANKENWEENIE, Santa Paws 2 The Santa Pups) as well as indie film Letting Go..a Jake Torem Film. For Books we have reviewed The Bedtime Book For Dogs by Bruce Littlefield and Wallace by Jim Gorant. Upcoming is a review of the book Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know by Hy Conrad & Jeff Johnson.
    ChazzTheDog loves both a good book and an exciting dog themed movie!! Could we use your event to learn more for what we do?



    1. The teleseminar will help you determine if you could be a freelance media spokesperson for a consumer brand or product. In your case, that might be a dog food brand, a pet toy line, or some other pet products category. So…it won’t help you learn more about what you’re doing, but it will help you learn if you can leverage what you’re doing to earn more from it. Make sense? Just let me know if you have other questions — feel free to e-mail me at sbATbuildbookbuzz.com.

      Thanks for stopping by and asking!


  2. Very intriguing, Sandy! Looks like a great opportunity to listen to and connect with someone on the ‘inside’ of the spokesperson circle. I’ve got a lot on my plate already…don’t know that I should pile more on. 😉

    1. You’ve described it perfectly, Vivian. Yes, you’ve got a lot going on, and it’s all good! You’ve accomplished so much! Feel free to share the information with anyone you think would be interested. Not enough authors & bloggers know about spokesperson opportunities.

      Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! I hope it’s a special day for you and your family.
