How can you promote yourself without being obnoxious?

How can you promote yourself without being obnoxious?

Once you get publicity in newspapers, TV or on media web sites, you have to let your followers, fans and prospects know about it. Of course, some people are shy about saying nice things about themselves. So look what PR LEADS client Lauren E Miller did when her stress relief techniques were printed on CNBC.com (with our help, of course).

This is her idea and it is a great idea. Here’s what she sent via email:

Subject line: Hi Dan, It’s Lauren with Spring Cleaning Your Head

Peace to you Dan,

life on CNBC:

I noticed three great tactics:

1. She didn’t jump up and down and say “I was quoted here.” She made it user benefit oriented. Of course, I’m okay with jumping up and down and saying “I was quoted here.” But she did a much better job. I’d recommend this highly.

2. She put in a tracking link to the website so she can see how many people clicked through. Now she can tell the value of her media placement.

3. She promoted her in-person seminar. The media mention was an easy way to create another positive “touch” or “impression” with her fans.

Nice job, Lauren. I learned a lot from you!
