PUBLISHING BACKED BY A TV PLATFORM
What makes our publishing services unique is that we are not a 'self-publishing' company. There are no 'agent fees.' We can turn around the publishing process of a book in under one year. We have the infrastructure to promote and sell the book, and in our new business model, we split profits with authors as a business partnership.
Under a one year Platinum Membership Account, TVGuestpert Publishing will publish a completed manuscript for national distribution with one of our known associations, ie. Ingram or New Leaf depending on the product of the media campaign.
Under this arrangement, TVGuestpert Publishing will pick up all of the hard copy expenses related to the publishing and distribution of the book including, but not limited to, cover design, production galley, Chicago Style Copy Editing, infrastructure to support national bookstore distribution in conjunction with a TVGuestpert Platinum Membership to coordinate and promote the book nationally.
The advantage of having your book published under this arrangement is that you get the publishing and the PR under the same roof.
If you already have a book that is self-published, TVGuestpert Publishing will consider picking up the distribution costs of the book under a Platinum Membership.
EBOOKS AND AUDIO BOOKS
Our Publishing department goes page by page through your book and creates your eBook for both Kindle and Nooks. We also have our author read their book in its entirety for audio book platforms. TVGuestpert Publishing will set up a new account or add to a preexisting account for all eBook and audio book platforms.
PRODUCING OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE
DEMO REEL & SPEAKER REEL SERVICES
A reel of past performances highlights is always helpful, but here at TVGuestpert, we strongly recommend showing producers not just what you've done, but what you WILL be doing when you land those bookings. Our professionally produced demo reels are not clip oriented. We script, shoot and edit brand new material and interviews that show producers exactly what you will do for them in content that is fresh and fits your brand and position you for upcoming opportunities. We can put your demo reel online; instant access for inquiring producers! As an additional bonus, we can also produce a Speakers Reel for clients who wish to explore the lucrative world of speaking engagments and tours.

UNIQUE. BRANDED. ON STRATEGY.
We have a full service graphic designer to produce a press kit that will get you booked on TV! We also help you fashion the content of your press kit/materials so that it is consistent in reflecting your overall branding message and style. Our press kits are unique to the Guestperts community and are published like a glossy magazine.
SITES THAT CLICK WITH TELEVISION OPPORTUNITIES
TVGuestpert will provide full service web design to keep it all within your branding. We realized early on that we were bringing to the table amazing television appearances that were not translating to business for the Guestpert. We came to find out that many websites were actually web-pages that didn't provide or collect data needed to build a media platform. TVGuestpert's own IT team and graphic design group will customize a personal website.
Media Consultation is the active development of your media plan, vision, strategy, and overall message. We evaluate your current platform and help you design a blueprint for raising your profile in the meda.
During our initial consultations with you, we examine your past media experieince, and your overall vision and we determine what action steps need to be taken in the spaces in between.
The following is a breakdown of the areas we work that a media consultation may cover:
BRANDING: A brand is the symbolic embodiment of all the information connected with your product. As a television guest expert, YOU are the product. Our philosophy is to create a distinct yet consistent identity for the Guestpert's overall media package while honoring their mission statement and making sure they can deliver.
BIO: A bio is a one page biography constructed specificially for use as part of your media plan. In order to maximize the effectiveness of your bio, it should be designed by someone who "speaks the language" of the specific target audience.
PRESS KIT: A press kit is a pre-packaged set of promotional materials which usually includes a Demo Reel, articles, reviews, photos, and background information on the person(s). Television show producers are bombarded by thousands of press kits and various other material submissions. In order to ensure that your press kit and materials are most likely to be seen by the producers, during out media consutlations, we can advise you on creating and packaging them in a way that overcomes the unique barriers that exist in television production offices whether electronic or material.
DEVELOPMENT OF CONTENT: We work with our Guestperts to develop their sound-bites, content, and message that creates the most possibilities for getting booked on TV! We often refer to these as Hot Topics. The most underrated yet valuable service as a Guestpert can invest in, learn, and practice is the development of creating sellable speaking points because the currency of the language of bookings is segment topics. The wider an expert's message can be crafted, the broader the chance a Guestpert has in creating and attracting the most possible media requests. Your participation in your own content development is crucial to the outcome of your success in your media career. In addition, we have seen that the creating of content opens up all sorts of unexpected and unforeseen opportunities for the Guestpert.
*As a Guestpert, we highly recommend that you put "Member of TVGuestpert.com" on your web-site and marketing materials accordingly, as it a media privilage to be a TVGuestpert.
