You’ve created something great. How do you get the word out?
For many authors, coaches, creators and entrepreneurs, self-promotion can be intimidating—even terrifying. Media and publicity consultant Wayne Kelly offers a free mini-workshop on how to navigate media opportunities on Tuesday, October 18, 7 p.m. at the Nelson Public Library. Entitled

Self-promotion for the Faint-of-Heart, the evening aims to open doors to the airwaves.
“For many, the job of promoting yourself is so daunting that most people never do it,” says Kelly.

“Or they might think: why isn’t the media calling me?”
Currently host of the Wayne and Jayne Show on EZ Rock, Kelly has been coaching authors and speakers for nearly 10 years about how to promote themselves on radio and television.

His clients have been featured on CBC, CNBC, CNN, Rachel Rae, Good Morning America, A Channel and countless radio shows around the world.
The evening will teach participants how to identify the best media outlets for their projects and which ones to approach for an interview. Understanding media’s point of view is key to getting a foot in the door; once there, it’s important to know how to give a good interview.

After that 15 minutes of fame, knowing how to drive traffic and sales means getting the best bang for your on-air buck.
The Nelson Public Library is delighted to help creators and entrepreneurs get the word out by hosting an evening with an expert.

No registration is required.
