Trust me … it’s not YOU, it’s your process. Now, before I let you in on the secrets of gaining celebrity-level brand exposure, let me tell you who I am …
I’m Patrice Tartt, pitch master, The DREAM BIG WRITING Coach®, and a “yes pusher” who knows how to get women authors, bloggers, speakers and entrepreneurs featured as an expert or writer in top-name publications so they can serve more people with their genius.
You see, I know all about pushing to get that “yes” because like you, I’ve certainly received my fair share of “nos” from editors and writers.
But all that changed three years ago when I tried something different.
I stopped listening to all the gurus on how to get published and started researching and building my own process on how to get editors to say “Yes.” And after researching and testing my steps, I’ve developed a proven process that has secured feature story and guest writer opportunities for me and my clients in highly recognized publications including The HuffPost, Inc., ESSENCE, Parents Magazine, Upscale, She Knows, Black Enterprise, The Network Journal, BET, Everything Girls Love, Kontrol Magazine, Publishers Weekly, The Houston Defender, Examiner, MadameNoire, and Curly Nikki.
This year 2019, I was invited to an event to interview Congresswoman Maxine Waters and other members of Congress, and also met Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and have the pictures to prove it. I was even pitched to interview the NBA Hall of Famer, Isiah Thomas! A few years ago, I was also invited and sat at the table directly in front of the podium at the White House as First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about the Let’s Move! initiative. Plus, I landed invites to rub elbows with celebrities and provided red-carpet media coverage at the Black Girls Rock! Awards show that aired on BET, the STARZ red carpet premiere for the hit television, POWER, and although I had to decline, I was invited to the TV Land Icon Awards – all without a journalist degree or decades of experience as a reporter or columnist.
Whether I’m chatting it up with international superstars or interviewing legendary celebrities, being a national blogger certainly has its perks.
Now here’s the thing you need to know:
Getting published is NOT just about seeing your name or face on the page, it’s about attracting more clients, building more creditability and growing your brand – all of which my clients and I are doing because of my Pitch Perfect® process.
