This is the big leagues. The stuff history is made of: You're ready to share your feature story with the New York Times, announce your political campaign on YouTube, or hire your new CEO. This is the sort of content that will have a lasting impression on you and the world - Make sure it's crafted just right, with the correct voice and tone.
To truly know a person or understand a topic you have to be an excellent listener and willing to ask the right questions. At EBCC we pride ourselves in being sleuths when it comes to interviewing. With a true reporter's spirit, we want to know the full story, but are respectful of personal privacy and confidential sources. Here are a few reasons why you might need a professional interviewer:
If you want your story to be picked up by local, state, national, or international news it needs to be properly formatted and addressed to the correct person. If not, your story's not going anywhere- no matter how informative or entertaining it is.
EBCC will work with you to select the best media to present your story and also to develop the press release publishers will look for when selecting topics. Think of EBCC as your own personal publicist; finding the right editors to contact and helping you establish the necessary relationships that will get your message out to your desired audience.
Queries, Pitches & Proposals - Three words familiar to all writers, yet dreaded by so many.
Did you know J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was rejected 14 times by publishers? She was also told not to quit her day job. Gone With the Wind was rejected 38 times. Gertrude Stein submitted poems for over twenty years before one was published. Kipling was told he didn't know how to use the English Language.
The point is, Story Pitching is a lonely and cruel business. EBCC can help handle the load by either working with you or taking it on for you. Never give up, but don't lose your marbles waiting to get published.
The dreaded moment has happened, your boss tapped you on the shoulder and told you she wants you to make the featured speech at this year's annual conference. This is where you've always wanted to be - regarded as an expert in your field, BUT NOT standing behind a podium - On a stage. Under a hot light. In front of thousands of people.
Crafting a speech or creating a presentation is daunting and can feel like a second full time job is added to your workload. Save yourself the stress and time by hiring EBCC to prepare your presentation package. Together, we will craft an informative speech with talking points and displays to convey your message.
Edits and Revisions
Sometimes you just need a second set of eyes to catch that typo or grammatical error that has been staring you in the face for hours, days, and weeks. If you have a written piece that you can't seem to set free, its probably because it needs an external and impartial editor. EBCC can edit that final copy, giving you the confidence to let your message soar.
Revisions are another aspect of editing EBCC can help you with. Many times people start off with an excellent idea, but then veer, painfully, off track during the writing phase. A revision or re-write can bring your message back into focus. Documents you should consider editing and revising before submitting include:
