Getting free publicity

DISCLAIMER: As much as I would like to give away ALL my tips for free, I just can’t.

I can’t because I have bills to pay, kids to feed and a car which still costs over £65 to fill up even though the fall in price of fuel makes me very happy.

And the thing is, should I give away all the knowledge and expertise I have learned over 20-odd years in journalism and public relations without actually getting paid? The answer, very simply, is no. The solution, very simply, is to charge a nominal fee – say £30 – to a select group of attendees and give them the power to beat their business rivals to more publicity, better publicity and free publicity.

So that’s where Get Publicity Now! was born. A fairly unique half-day workshop covering photography, press releases and marketing cleverness specifically aimed at raising the profile of your business.

Book your place now bit.ly/GPNtickets (or click on the Eventbrite link to the right) The workshop starts at 10am (until 1pm) om Tuesday March 24, 2015.

NOTES: I did this to promote my book God, Have You Ever Been To Wigan?
