How do I know this course is for me?
- you desire to promote your project or business with clarity, grace, and authenticity
- you are planning an upcoming event, product or launch that could benefit from free publicity
- you have a story to tell and a mission to positively affect the lives of the people you reach

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I have to have an online business to benefit from the course?
A: Not at all! This course will teach you techniques that can be used by online or brick-and-mortar businesses to generate local, national, or international press. If you are an artist, you can use these same principles to publicize your work.
Q: What if I don’t consider myself an expert?
A: My dear, you have to start somewhere. Through the strategies discussed in this course, you’ll learn how to position yourself as someone who is knowledgeable in your field. You don’t have to be at the top of your niche to bring value to others!
Q: Do I have to be super salesy in the way I approach journalists?
A: Glad you asked! I find that most journalists (like most human beings) don’t like being sold stuff. I don’t tell you to make ridiculous claims to convince a writer that you’re good at what you do.
It’s my goal to help you communicate the value of your work with clarity and grace, not sleazy salesmanship. Good vibes all around 🙂
Q: Do I have to spend tons of money to get people to write about me?
A: Nope. If you pay someone to write about you, that’s called advertising.
I’m here to show you how to get brand-boosting publicity using completely free tools you can get online.
Q: What types of pitches are covered in the course?
A: The following pitch scenarios are included in the course:
- Cold Pitch – outreach to someone you’ve never spoken to before
- Warm Pitch – outreach to someone you’ve had contact with in the past
- Guest Post Pitch for a new article idea
- Guest Post Pitch to update a previous article
Q: What if I don’t know which publications I want to reach out to?
A: The course covers several techniques for finding the best outlets for your niche.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Since this is an instant access course, all sales are final.

“Publicity is absolutely critical.
A good PR story is infinitely more effective than a front page ad.”

I'm Ieva, The Friendly Publicist!
I help ambitious entrepreneurs get heard online by teaching them how to do their own publicity.
If you have a laptop and an internet connection, you can secure press coverage for your business.
How do I know? I landed a feature for my weird christmas tree in The New York Post while browsing Twitter.
My email pitches secured press for my clients while I sold popsicles in a park.
No fancy database, no editor BFFs, just me and my keyboard.
Since then I’ve refined those skills to help my clients get coverage on tons of publications including The Huffington Post, NYLON, The Creators Project, Brooklyn Magazine, and Design Milk.
Even though a lot of publicists out there will tell you PR is a big, scary thing, I’m here to tell you it isn’t.
You have to be clear and courageous–I’m here to help you ease into it.
I can’t wait to have you join me in this course!
