“Approaching the media now feels doable”

“When I started working with Caroline I was focussing my energy entirely on social media and didn’t have a clue how to approach magazines and papers. I was overwhelmed with trying to keep up with the demands of social media and frustrated with the lack of tangible results compared to the effort I was putting in.

I took part in Caroline’s one day workshop which took me through the stages of working out who I was trying to reach, which media to target and how I could use my story and my products to approach them. Caroline broke the steps down into bitesize chunks which really helped. We also developed a PR plan which will see me working up to six months in advance to meet the deadlines of the long-lead women’s magazines and pitching with the right information and images to get my business noticed by the right people.

“My biggest takeaway from the workshop was confidence, I know I still have a lot to learn but approaching the media now feels doable. Rather than focussing purely on social media I now realise that no one route to a higher profile is enough but that I need to target all routes, including more traditional media. For anyone sitting on the fence about signing up for a Cheerleader PR workshop with Caroline I would say ‘DO IT!’

“I now have content coming out of my ears and confidence in my own voice and stories”

“I signed up for the Cheerleader PR workshop because my marketing efforts had plateaued, and I needed a boost when it came to content and making connections with the right sorts to find my ideal client.

“I now have content coming out of my ears! More than a boost, the workshop has given me the confidence in my own voice and stories. Not only do I have interesting stories to tell, I have plenty of angles to approach a range of media outlets.

“During the workshop, Caroline’s warm and friendly demeanour gave me the space to open up about my business story. Caroline helped me to structure my thoughts into a manageable plan of action.

“A true professional, Caroline has put together an insightful, easy to digest & complete workshop to turn the PR novice into a confident and competent PR whizz! As well as being fully supportive and a lovely person to cheer your business on!”
