How to get your business famous, with Victoria Mary Clarke

 

“I would highly recommend Victoria Mary Clarke’s media coaching. Victoria is insightful, supportiveanne-walsh and good at her job. Within a week of signing up to her media Savvy coaching course she had me speaking on RTE radio with Dave Fanning and coverage in the Sunday Independent.  She has a way of picking up on things you say and delving deeper to the important bits. She is very positive and lovely to work with and would recommend if you are looking for new ways to reach out to your customers and connect with them”. 

Anne Walsh, Allergy Lifestyle Ltd

‘Victoria seems almost disappointingly normal and pleasant. She outlined my current, rather pitiful state of mind, and she was so accurate I found myself holding my breath. There were no false promises, if you are looking for sneak previews of tall, dark strangers traveling over water, or any of the usual, you’ll be coming away empMarian Keyesty-handed. Instead, it was more of an incredibly intense advice or counseling session, but one that was steeped in compassion, and had its basis in universal truths. Really, you had to be there. Because the change she wrought on me was due to much more than the effect of mere words. As I left I had no idea whether I really had been in conversation with my own personal angels, but I didn’t care. I remembered all the good things I’d already known but had managed to forget and I felt better than I had in ages-safe and cherished, restored to myself: happy to be the person living my life.’  Marian Keyes, from ‘Under the Duvet’


How to get the attention of the Media

How To Get The Attention Of The Media’ at the Irish Biz Party Inspires conference Dublin, April 2015

Can you have TOO MUCH media attention?

Can you have TOO MUCH media attention? You may be worried that if you start to get media exposure and attention, you might end up with more than you want and more than you need! It is true that if you become well known, people will be interested in you, and if people are interested in you, the media will be interested in you.  And while you may only want attention when you are selling your products or services or when you are launching something and you want customers to know about it, it is possible that if you become a very public figure, the media might give you attention when something bad happens in your life, when you get caught having an affair, when you have a nasty accident, or even worse, when somebody you love dies and you are bereaved. Many famous people have experienced this.  Princess Diana was perhaps the most well known example of a person who attracted media attention 24/7 no matter what was happening in her life, and much of the media attention that she got was intrusive and disturbing.  When she was killed, her children also had to deal with being photographed at a time when they were mourning her and not in the mood.  My partner recently lost his mother in a tragic accident, and he was photographed looking grief stricken and in shock, which is not how anyone likes to see themselves on the cover of a newspaper!  And when you are provoked, and you become angry, you may be inclined to retaliate, which will only make for a better... read more

Should you get naked?

Should you get naked? We all know that nudity and sex sell newspapers!  They also sell magazines, blog posts, car tyres and pretty much anything else that you can think of.  Ok, so not everybody is brave enough (crazy enough?) to strip off in order to promote a product, but if this is something that you are willing to consider, it can be a great way to grab the attention of the media and get your product or service noticed. When people ask me if this is something that they should do, I ask them three questions. Is it appropriate? Will it actually benefit your product and generate sales?  If you are selling a nude calendar like the Irish Farmers it is definitely appropriate!  If you are selling beauty/skincare products, it can also be a huge advantage to pose naked and show off how great your bod is. Think Roz Purcell.  If you are selling health foods.  Think the Happy Pear Twins. Are you comfortable doing it? You are the one who will have to live with your choice. Ultimately nobody else can decide this for you, but if you are worried about what other people will think, you may wish to ask yourself whose life are you living?  And I will let you in on a secret.  I posed naked for the cover of the Sunday Independent and I am still alive!!! How can you make it fun? You don’t have to be completely naked to get attention, you can be partially (strategically) covered, and you can have a lot of fun choosing which props you use.

Do you have a really cool/gorgeous/unusual product? Would it interest a journalist?

Do you have a really cool/gorgeous/unusual product?  Would it interest a journalist? If you have ever been a feature writer or a radio or television producer, you will know that we are ALWAYS looking for ideas for stuff to write about, talk about and feature. The ideas can come from anywhere.   I have interviewed a cobbler, a honey producer, a coffee roaster, a chocolatier, jewellery designers, fashion designers, cake makers, hatters, writers, painters, hoteliers, you name it!   Last week I featured a lady who sells socks made from possum wool, and as a result she got a photo and article in Ireland’s biggest selling Sunday paper, the Sunday Independent.  If she had bought an ad this size it would have cost around 50,000 euro!   So if you have a wonderful product (or service) that you want the world to know about, please contact me (and all the other journalists/researchers) and let us know what you have got!!!   If you are keen to get the word out about you and what you do, but you are unsure where to start, you can schedule a FREE Media Strategy Call with me to get you on track for 2017.  The world deserves to know about what you have got to offer!   Click here to book your free media strategy call: ... read more
