OUR STUDENTS MAKING MEDIA MOVES

 

Imagine seeing your face in the middle of Times Square or on the cover of your hometown newspaper.. Your founder's story featured during primetime on The Today Show or the lead story on your local ABC morning show. Imagine waking up and seeing your business as the main story on Entrepreneur Magazine's homepage. Or seeing your product listed in a gift guide read by thousands - even millions of your ideal customers.

 

What would that mean for your business??

 

Now picture this. 

Being able to get your business in front of millions of eyeballs...for free.

 

For most entrepreneurs, especially if you're just starting out this is just a dream.


But it doesn't have to be that way. 

 

Starting December 2nd, we're pulling back the curtain and sharing what we've learned in a combined 30 years of not only producing and reporting for the TODAY Show, CNN.com, NBC, Bloomberg TV and more….but also running a PR agency (that worked with small biz owners just like you) and a video production company, working with brands like Netflix, Amazon, Afterpay and Lululemon...  so you can get the power of the press, without the big city budget.

If you're reading this, you either:


A. Know how powerful press can be for your business 

      but can't seem to get your pitches out of the spam folder and into booked opportunities,

 

OR

 

B. Think press might be good for your business but you don't even know where to begin

     nor do you have a Netflix-sized marketing budget to play with "just in case" it doesn't work.

 

 

 

You need to see proven, this will actually move the needle, kind of results. 

 

You're in the right place.

THERE ARE THREE PILLARS OF POWERFUL PRESS, AND YOU NEED ALL THREE TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

(IF YOU'VE BEEN PITCHING WITHOUT SUCCESS ALREADY, KEEP READING!)

 

 

  • Dynamic Video

    There is no other medium that will bridge that like, know, trust faster than video. And when a producer has to sift through hundreds of pitch emails a day, a few well-written, short pieces of video can be the difference between your email staying in the in-box...or not.  

     

    In this course, we will tell you what pieces of video the press wants to see so you can stop spinning your wheels and focus on needle-moving video content.

     

     

Class #1 blew me out of the water with excitement because you 3 have such amazing chemistry together, the energy was palpable and I realized 1. OMFG, these women are AMAZING 2. This class was going to be SO FUN and 2. Holy crap, I'm going to learn so much. I loved the easy vibe, the positivity, the jokes but also the tough love - the real, real!

Karisa Curtis

If anyone is on the fence. Do it! It was such a great course and what I learned has changed my business and the way I am planning for 2022! Such great support and knowledge.

Melissa Panszi Riebe

I didn't expect to "dig deep" to find my why. It was an assignment that I didn't expect and one that I spent a lot of time on. It was truly beneficial to me because, while I thought I knew my why was, I really hadn't thought about it in the way that was suggested. It's something that I learned about myself that I will have forever

  • Perfect Pitching

    Pitching the media can cause even the most confident person to question and doubt their methods. It is part art and part science. 

     

    But when you have a team that includes a PR Pro and Emmy-winning reporter walking you through your pitch from story planning to pitch creation to execution, things feel different. Things start to happen.

    When you can see the ideas and pitches that have booked local and national news stories, understand what works and what doesn’t work, and get an insider’s look at the process, your own pitching process is elevated - and the results follow.

     

    We’re not just talking about your pitch. We’ll get deep and specific about how to find the best media “homes” for your story/stories (you probably have more than one in there), we’ll talk about getting on the right person’s radar quickly, and how to design a PERFECT PITCH for them. THEM being the key word in this sentence. 

     

    You’ll work in realtime to create these stories and angles with us, build them into pitches you’ll use for years to come, and have a crystal clear understanding of who needs to receive these stories, how to find them, connect with them and execute.

     

     

I had the chance to begin learning PR from Sabina six months ago; and it has opened my eyes to sharing my business with national and local media, profoundly impacting my  biz in the process.

 

I’ve used her training and insight to land both my story and expertise in the press repeatedly - including my own local TV news and a NATIONAL morning show as well…but even more impressive is that I now know how to do all of this for myself so I can keep this momentum and visibility going and growing.

Dr. Zabina Bhasin a.k.a. Dr. Ze

At one point I thought I could never do TV segments on my own and now I am a well-oiled machine thanks to Sabina’s lessons, and I’ve been seen on E! News, Fox, and more!. She opened my eyes to how producers operate and how to craft the perfect pitch.

 

I started to feel more confident in my ability to pitch on my own, and totally changed my perspective on how to land a TV segment, which I have done repeatedly since then.

 

From TV to magazines she has taught me to achieve placements I once only dreamed of having.

  • Straight Storytelling

    When someone is invested in your story, they become invested in your success.

     

    Pitches that just pitch a product often get deleted, they feel too much like commercials, BUT when you’re telling a story, well that’s another ballgame, one that doesn’t wind up in the deleted folder. 

     

    Once your story is straight, we need to work on you being able to articulate it, confidently.

     

    We’ll give you our tips and trick to nailing ‘it’ every single take! 

     

I consider myself incredibly lucky to have had Joelle as the mastermind behind my Today Show segment. She's an immensely talented producer, editor, and storyteller, but what I'll remember most is her beautiful heart and infectiously positive spirit. Both the final piece and my experience working with Joelle are great gifts that I will treasure forever.

Stacy Lazzara

I can tell that you have “IT” because that's such a thoughtful question.

Oprah Winfrey

Joelle Garguilo is an intrepid reporter and an amazing person. She found Custom Collaborative through elaborate research, spent hours talking to me and several others, to shape a well-rounded story that resonated with me, and with the TODAY SHOW audience when her segment aired. She is down to earth, kind, a great listener, questioner and can extract a story from even the most reluctant subject

WHEN YOU COMBINE THE THREE, PURE MAGIC! 

 

If you're ready to elevate and amplify your business quicker, this course is perfect for you. And there is nothing else like this out there.

 

THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU IF:


  • Hearing the word VIDEO makes you - an otherwise confident, glow-it-up BOSS -low-key panic, feel immediately self-conscious, and go down a spiral of comparison? And that’s before you’ve even hit the record button! 

  • You are sick of making videos that do literally nothing for your business? (because TikTok dances are fun, but if they’re not converting then do you really have time for all that?)


Want to Learn from Experts?

US TOO.

 We're going to level with you, there's a lot of people teaching how to be confident on video, how to make reels, get press, etc…

And that's great! We love to see a confident woman standing in her power. But we also know how important it is to work with the best of the best.

 

It's why we chose careers at The Today Show, pursued media in NYC, started PR firms, launched video companies to work with brands like Netflix, Parsley Health, Trestique and Lululemon. We are not just “good at Instagram” but all have individual companies where we work within our zones of genius. 

 

We'll just be blunt: you can't get this kind of access anywhere else. And most people in this industry are not as transparent as us either.  All three of us genuinely get lit up from helping people like yourself.

 

We know our stuff, and have the awards and client results to prove it.

If you want to see what a true triple threat is, take this course.  Media, Video, and PR.  You will never get the opportunity to be a part of this group.  A must as a solopreneur or maker. This will help you plan to take your business to the next level.

Melissa Panszi-Riebe

Before starting this course, I didn't fully recognize how deep I would need to dig to mine my story. Even though the purpose of it is to lay the foundation to get press, it ended up being incredibly impactful for me on a personal level to do. Finding your purpose and soul-searching will do that to you! :) 

 

Karisa Curtis

They care.  They care about the material they are teaching - it was obvious that it was very planned out and specific.  They care about their students - not to be redundant, but it's so obvious that you truly want everyone to be successful - this isn't just a way to make money for you (that's a compliment). You can also tell that you like each other and that makes for a great environment for everyone.
