COMMON PROBLEMS:Media Training problems

Trying to wing it in an interview can result in a lost opportunity.  Being prepared allows you to turn the tables on the press, so that you take control over your message rather than the media controlling your image. While some of these interviews may go “just fine,” a powerful opportunity may go un-utilized. This is where media training comes in. Unless you call the audience to act on what you communicated, nothing happens.

  • Learn how to organize your media messages
  • How to be ready for any question
  • How to speak in a way that is quotable

Being unprepared will result in a number of discrediting manners and poor strategy, which are accentuated on camera, radio, or print. Media Training can help with this. Some of the biggest problems we see:

  • Looking uncomfortable
  • Sound scattered, ramble, use too many ums and ahs
  • Appear disorganized
  • Get stumped by tough questions
  • Not quotable
  • Not the expert on your topic
  • Show irritation at interviewee mistakes
  • Failure to create interest, sales, or web traffic
  • No system to measure success for improvement

Media Training – THE CHALLENGEMedia Training crash course

Our Media Training crash course can save an entire year of trial and error on what should be happening in an interview. When you know what to expect, you’ll know what the outcome should be and how to manage it. In a typical workshop, (in addition to learning our systems and techniques), you will be able to take part in eight (8) hands-on practice sessions. This is where the skills go from intellectually understanding what’s supposed to happen in an interview to mastering the interview. Most people won’t deliver that many interviews in an entire year.  But, our media training crash course practice sessions push your skills, putting you ahead two or three years of otherwise sweating it out on air when it’s too late. The short amount of time you take to hone your media skills will tighten-up the long wait towards mastery. How valuable would that be to your career and business?

Media Training Workshops

Our workshops make sure you learn the techniques and drills that will prepare you to face the media confidence and competence. We will not just teach you these systems.  We walk you through the process. The best way to learn the new skill of interviewing is by doing over and over exactly what you will be doing in front of a reporter. you are done with this training, you will have more than just a new understanding of what to do in media situation. You will have skills to generate the right kind of publicity. This kind of publicity will carry your message further than advertising.
