After 15 years in the media, interviewing and being interviewed, in print, on radio and tv – from CNN to MTV, from the cover of WIRED to the NYT – I can say for sure I know a thing or two or 17 about press, how to get it, and how to NOT get it (hint: do NOT hire an expensive PR rep & send out pointless press releases) wink emoticon
After speaking around the world on this subject, and coaching many startup founders, I’m considering coming out with something more substantive, a way for more entrepreneurs, healers and artists to be able to access my hacks – and avoid paying 3-10k or more a month for a publicist who doesn’t do much of anything. (There are a few great ones, but they are few and far between.)
Would this be something you’d be interested in?
I’ve never put together an online course, and would love to partner with someone who is a pro at this … any suggestions? smile emoticon Thank you!
PS. There *IS* such thing as bad press. Trust me.
So, instead of hiring a real publicist, suckers buy Donkey’s hacks, the PR version of The Money Map? And when the fuck did this lazy layabout ever coach “many startup founders”?
She has no work ethic, a short attention span and can’t get out of bed before noon, so it’s hard to envision Donkey getting this simple con job up and running, even with the help of unpaid interns and her equally duplicitous friends cheering her on. Oh yeah, the newly integrated Ali Shanti showed up in the comments, but is she stupid enough to sign on as partner?
Jess “Duckface” Johnson lurvs the idea!
