Hermosa Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2005
TodayÂs entrepreneurs and professionals, doctors, lawyers, accounts or chiropractors are wearing another new hatÂpublic relations officer. There is a bottom-line truth to business today: if no one knows about your business, you are in trouble. Research from the University of California at Berkley demonstrates AmericansÂ obsession with media: ÂÂ researchers found that, on average, Americans spent 170 minutes a day watching TV and movies, or nine times the number of minutes spent on all leisure-time physical activities combined. The average daily duration for driving a car was 101 minutes, nearly five times the amount spent on sports and other exercise.Â (International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity. March, 2004) Imagine the cost to small businesses with no media presence if 4.5 hours of your customersÂ day is spent in front of media, radio and TV. Crafting a media savvy message is a mission-critical skill most entrepreneurs and professionals donÂt have today.
Entrepreneur Susan Levin, owner of Speaker Services is putting her 20+ years of experience of helping authors and speakers to work for the self-employed, entrepreneurs and professionals by creating the Get The Word Out Symposium (http://www.getthewordout.info), October 1 & 2nd in Los Angeles, CA.
ÂWith the downsizing of big business and the growth of the solo-entrepreneurs, people need help with learning on how to get their message across to todayÂs media. We are fortunate to have a host of Media Professionals, from television, radio, newspapers and magazines share their expertise with small businesses on how to get the mediaÂs attention,Â reports Susan Levin, co-sponsor of Get The Word Out. ÂBy creating the right message at the right time, everyone wins, media and the entrepreneur.Â
Get The Word Out is a two-day training workshop, which covers the important aspects of presenting a professional image to the media. The sessions cover both how to create a media savvy message and how to reach the media venue that is best for that message. It will be held on October 1 and 2nd at the Embassy Suites in El Segundo, CA.

Radio: KJLH, KPFK, KRLA, WomenÂs Radio, National Lampoon Networks
Television: KTLA, AMC, Wright PlaceÂ TV Show, E- Entertainment, Asylum Entertainment, Film Garden Entertainment
