What is a Media Trainer

Read Time:1 Minute, 21 Second

Recently, someone in one of the Facebook Forums asked me what was the difference between a media trainer and a PR person?  My response was:  As a media trainer, I do interview and speaker coaching to help clients prepare for interviews. I also teach how to write your own press releases and where to market yourself for interviews as well as offering coaching on setting up, producing and hosting your own blogtalk radio show.

Here are some more differences between a media trainer and a PR person:

1)  Unlike a PR person who will write (and sometimes distribute) your press releases for you, a Media Trainer teaches you how to do it yourself.

2)  A PR Person may act as your spokesperson.  A Media Trainer teaches you how to speak for yourself by working with you on interviewing styles and techniques.

3)  A PR Person never gives up their “A-list” of media contacts.  A Media Trainer shows you how to create your own.

4)  A Media Trainer can teach you how to create your own voice and message utilizing media tools like BlogTalk Radio.

5)  A Media Trainer teaches you how to get your dynamic personality across the airwaves.

6)  PR Reps work hard to help you increase your visibility and credibility.  A Media Trainer works hard to help you recognize you have gifts to share with the world and to help you find your voice and prosper.
To learn more about media training, you’re invited to attend the upcoming How to Find FREE Media Opportunities workshop on Thursday, April 28 from 12pm-2pm at The Center for Excellence.
