There are so many incredible things you can begin doing immediately to help launch yourself as a speaker in your local area. One of those things is to become a local expert that television show producers can call on to appear on local news and magazine shows to help them fill airtime with quality programming that people want to watch. Becoming an on-air contributor is easy to do but takes time to develop yourself and some patience to make it work. In this episode I'm going to teach you how to do it and share some segments of my on-air interviews with local ABC and NBC affiliate stations. So, let's get started with, why you need to become a local on-air contributor and how to do it.
Television producers need content and subject matter experts that can provide that content.
Once you have their contact information, send them your information as to who you are, what your expertise is and how they can contact you. Keep it brief, professional and concise. Then weekly, send them topic ideas they might interest them for a future segment. Keep an eye on national new or trends that you could offer advice on.
Once you get noticed by local producers and they like you as a guest, they will begin calling you regularly for on-air opportunities. When you are presenting something that ignites the passion in you, everything changes. The topic is delivered effectively, the audience is receptive and you as a speaker feel so complete and aligned with your self and your message. So figure out what your message is and start putting it together to change the lives of others. I want to hear what your ideas and questions are. Email me at Bill@billcorbett.com and let's connect. I'd love to hear from you.
