MBP #21: How Lauren Greutman Gets on TV All The Time

Lauren GreutmanFour years ago, Lauren Greutman started and has grown it to be a massively popular site through media appearances. In this episode, she gives a great collection of actionable strategies you can use to get more exposure for your blog through media.

She got her start after keynoting a seminar and then being invited to a local news station. She’s parlayed that into being a back up co-host on a local morning TV show and is a regular contributor to 9 WSYR and CNY Central. She appeared in print, online, and on the Marlo Thomas show.

Here’s one of those segments:
