Diva on Board
"I need more publicity for my packaging products
I hear this from everyone - individuals and inventors,
small businesses, nonprofit foundations - even large businesses.
Whether you're working your own guerilla publicity campaign
or paying out hefty sums of your PR budget, you're not
getting as much media attention as you'd like. As a matter
of fact, even the PR agencies aren't getting as much media
attention as they'd like!
I think I've found a solution for many of you... Diva
Here's how it works:
This program, aptly titled Diva on Board, is designed
for business owners and executives who wish they had someone
to talk with and to advise them about maximizing the company's
exposure through appropriate media opportunities.
Now you can include the Packaging Diva as an adjunct for
your organization ... and for a very reasonable investment.
The Diva has 30+ years of branding experience and can become
your ongoing resource for information and advice on all
aspects of PR for your business.
It's a retainer program where I watch for opportunities
to promote your company and its services. I will help you
craft the correct spin to get the most mileage from every
opportunity. You can also use me to help you assess other
promotional opportunities such as whether to exhibit at
a trade show and which trade shows will give you the most
return on your investment. It's like having a customized
marketing director just for your business!
The difference between traditional PR that doesn't always
work and Diva on Board is me. The Packaging Diva is a
brand name that is recognized around the world. That's
because my success has been built on researching trends
and innovations that affect the packaging industry and
sharing that knowledge with my clients to help you recognize
how your business can be impacted.
I'm able to offer this unique opportunity to a few select
clients in 2007. Sign up today for 3 months of the Diva
On Board and see the effects that good media coverage will
bring for your business.
The fee is $1,000 per month and is payable at the beginning
of each month. Diva on Board will begin accepting memberships
from everyone on January 1, but we're letting the Diva's
readers sign up now because we want to be sure you get
a space. Enrollment is extremely limited, so sign up quickly
to guarantee your place.
