Media Training Crash Course

Do you want to look comfortable and confident while getting what you want from the media?

Learn how to USE THE MEDIA to not just get your message out, but COMPEL people to do what you want. We'll start by helping you to look and sound better. After that, we'll isolate key messages you would like to see in the media story. On of the best parts of the training is how we get you to reformat those messages in the exact form the media wants them. We'll not only show you how to do it, you'll do it by the end of the workshop.

It will all be covered in this live Media Training Workshop.


SPECIAL NOTE: We can also do a private Media Training session with you or your group.

Avoid the Pitfalls


They think that Media Training is ONLY about helping people do a look and sound better during interviews.

Unfortunately, that's only part of it. Interviews, like anything in life have a BEGINNING, MIDDLE, and END.

The Beginning:  Deciding in advance what you want the outcome to be. What answers do you wish you could say? We'll help give you the best chances to easily remember and deliver those answers. Equally important is the following. Are you selling something? Are you looking for brand recognition? What do you want people to do as a RESULT of your interview? Do you want them to go to your web site? Do you want them to call or sign up for a free item so you can capture leads? You can and need to be strategic about every media situation.

The Middle: THE ACTUAL INTERVIEW. Yes! You got a media interview. 
NOW WHAT?!! We'll get specific on how to find and focus your MESSAGE, deal with any QUESTION that comes your way, and, how to create SOUND BITES that SELL.
People who "wing it" are throwing away not just free publicity but FREE ADVERTISING.

The End: Leveraging Interviews. TURN INTERVIEWS INTO SALES or LEADS or quantifiable results. I don't know any other media training organization with this approach. THIS IS WHY YOU WANT THE MEDIA TO COVER YOU! Again, we get SPECIFIC on techniques you can't afford NOT to know. These techniques will reward you for years to come, and set you up to sell future books, products, services, and seminars ...

During Media Training Crash Course, We'll take you through the WHOLE process.

The program appears on CBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX stations across the U.S.

jess todtfeld success in mediaIn 2009, Todtfeld became a #1 best selling author with the release of his third book. During the promotion of the book, he set a GUINNESS RECORD for most radio interviews in a single day -112 lasting 4 minutes long or longer. (More than most people do in a year.)

Jess brings with him 13 years of experience as a television producer on the national level for networks including ABC, NBC, and FOX. During that time he booked and produced over 4,000 segments. During his seven years at Cable TV's #1 Morning Show "FOX & Friends," at FOX News Channel, Jess worked with celebrities, politicians, and news makers. 

Prior to joining “FOX & Friends” in 1998, Jess spent two years with Cable’s #1 prime time show, “The O’Reilly Factor.” While there, Jess saw many guests that could have benefited from proper media training. Before making his way to FOX News Channel, Jess spent two years at the NBC's cable channel “America’s Talking.” The format exclusively featured talk shows. Jess worked as an Associate Producer on their quirky morning show, “What’s New,” and later on their late night talk show, “After Hours.” The shows’ producers found Jess to be entertaining and ended up putting him on the air almost daily. First, Jess was the “Across the Street Correspondent.” He would talk to real people, live on the air from across the street from the studio. Jess went on to shoot humorous packages that featured him as talent.
