I know it sounds crazy- but most people don’t send a thank you note after they do a media interview…
Big mistake! Always send a note to the host and the producer.
In the note… 1- Thank them for having you on ( or for the interview) 2- Remember a specific item from the interview and talk about that 3- Give them your cell # and offer to be on anytime at the last minute 4- Tell how much fun you had on the show and how you got a great reaction
(phone calls and e mails etc) 5- Ask them for a “testimonial” and ask them to send it to you on their stationary
(for your press kit) 6- Ask them for an mp3 of the show ( or a tear sheet if it is a print interview)
If you think about it, many of the greatest minds in history had mentors who helped them accelerate their learning and growth ...
Socrates mentored Plato ... Plato mentored Aristotle ... Aristotle mentored Alexander the Great ... and Warren Buffet has been known to have mentored Bill Gates ...
Today, I want you to meet my "teleseminar mentor." Over the years, this man has helped dozens of authors sell more books and info products - faster, better, easier ... using nothing more than an ordinary telephone!
Why am I telling you this?
I'm telling you this because on Thursday, December 7th, the my "tele-mentor" is hosting a live tele-training I want you to attend so you can learn how to double your income while tripling your time-off.
During the first 10 minutes of that call, he has promised me to reveal how he has turned his annual income (in 2001) into an hourly income (in 2006). Incredible!
So what do you say...will you dial-in?
I feel this tele-training is so important to your business (and career), I've made special arrangements to get you phone access at the lowest cash outlay possible.
Just use your VIP Discount Code (below) and you'll get to save $79 off the normal $99 tuition everybody else is paying ...
Enjoy and let me know what you think This is an hour teleseminar chock full of incredible information

November 6, 2006 -- Rick Frishman- President of Planned TV Arts in New York City www.plannedtvarts.com taught a course last night to 50 members of the New York Chapter of the National Speakers Association. Tips that everyone should know....* Every speaker and CEO needs to learn how to become an author * Publicity can make you as famous and rich as you like * Never- ever go on a radio show or TV show until you have been trained by a professional media trainer. Ever day business people, CEO's, politicians shoot themselves in the foot by trying to be funny on the media (Yes we all can think of a politician who fits that bill recently)
Some rules of the road - according to Frishman
1- Have 5 main points for every interview- put them on index cards 2- Take control of the interview 3- Don't wait for them to ask you the right question 4- Learn how to segue-or bridge to the point that you want to make 5- Remember - Nothing is off the record 6- Teach - don't sell. 7- Give people 3 things to do today that will change their life 8- Have enthusiasm. Passion persuades. 9- Be funny- Your job is to be smart- and to entertain. Lastly- 10- Watch what you say.... Remember " A closed mouth gathers no foot" in other words - "when in doubt... shut up" Food for thought for every part of our life For more great tips and to get Rick's "Million Dollar Rolodex" go to www.rickfrishman.comwww.rickfrishman.com
