Working an Opportunity: They said YES (!!!) … Now what?!

Today we’re talking about how to work an opportunity. In this video we tackle the unique challenges and investment it takes to work a coverage opportunity after you’ve initially secured the promise of coverage. We discuss:

  • How to prepare yourself or your client for an interview
  • How to keep an opportunity from falling through
  • How to re-work an opportunity …

I discuss the above points in detail within today’s video.

If you can, bring in a professional.

As I explain in this final video, securing and working media coverage opportunities is tough work. It’s time consuming and if an opportunity isn’t properly worked, it can lead to a missed opportunity or a poorly executed piece of coverage. The ideal scenario is to have a PR professional or agency on hand to secure and work these opportunities. If you have questions about what this could look like for your brand, send us an email.
