    Jeannie,

    I was just reading over your post. Not everyone can say NBC called wanting to do a story on their product.  Despite that you not at the million mark in revenue it is still awsome.  Good luck to you.

    I also have been enjoying the Big Idea shows.

    Best Regards,

    Julie Barnes

    Good Afternoon Jeannie,

    How is everything going with your SmudgeGuard?  Have you heard anymore from The Big Idea?

    It has really been good lately.

    Ok, somebody noticed you, and it was somebody BIG.  So, go proactive.  Go to the website, find out about the show producers for a big time show, like the ones you watch, and send them a pitch.  Come up with an interesting angle for your product, like it will do....something unique.  Don`t forget about the Today show and others like it. 
     Joan Stewart`s site (publicity hound) has PR ideas and you can submit a product to her newsletter and her readers will give you ideas on how to promote it. 
     
    The worst thing that happens is they are not interested.  The best thing that happens is that they ARE interested.  Try your local TV news stations too, they like human interest stories and a local small biz that attracted NBC is a big story.  Tell them they were considering featuring you for a national story.  That will get their attention.
     
    Also, find out about that catalog for lefties and get your product in there. 
     
    Good luck!

    Wow! I am sorry to hear about the reporter`s story criteria. Your product is brilliant. But hopefully they`ll source you and call back again!
