Women are traditionally underrepresented in many forums and are interviewed in mass media outlets much less than their male counterparts
Pomona, NY (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
Pattie Simone, a print journalist and entrepreneurial activist, has launched WomenCentric® (http://www.womencentric.net), a unique publicity and booking portal for women experts. WomenCentric, based in Pomona, New York, is a hybrid of public relations and marketing firm and a national speakers bureau. The members of WomenCentric are booked as keynote speakers, motivational presenters and corporate trainers, and are tapped as experts in their fields by print, broadcast and online journalists.
"Women are traditionally underrepresented in many forums and are interviewed in mass media outlets much less than their male counterparts," noted Simone. "Through the services of WomenCentric, HR Directors, career and life advancement workshop bookers, Conference planners, and members of the media can go to one online rolodex for the perfect expert, author, speaker, panelist or corporate trainer who happens to be a woman."
All WomenCentric members are vetted, and have years of expertise in their respective fields. Membership packages include discounted services from select vendors and Personal Promotional Coaching with Simone, to help them hone their individual marketing and branding efforts. WomenCentric will be using strategic online advertising and social media venues, tapping into Twitter, Facebook and other online forums to create awareness of the WomenCentric brand, build buzz and inbound website traffic. Members will benefit from organic SEO, social networking and traditional sales campaigns via a personal web page with a head shot, video clip, and information about individual areas of expertise, specific program topics, pricing, past clients, and special accomplishments.
"Now women experts who don't have an agent or can't afford a traditional PR firm, can gain more exposure in mass media as well as securing more lucrative speaking and corporate training engagements, through WomenCentric," said Simone.
WomenCentric, originally birthed in 2005 as a small women's speaking group and women's empowerment special events firm, has already served an impressive roster of clients, including Citigroup, KPMG, NRWA and the ANA, and has given motivational and skills-based training programs to audiences in America, England, France and Denmark.
