The MoneySmart FREE Media Course Info Sheet

What would happen if you started landing interviews in local magazines, newspapers or even on TV?

What would you do if one of those interviews led to a segment on a national TV Show?

And what you do if you received dozens of national media requests all at no cost to you?

How would it affect your business, book, or blog? Most importantly, how would it transform your life?

Now, what if we told you that we did exactly this, and we went from Start-Up to Good Morning America in just one year?

How we received $18 Million in Free National Media Exposure

Finally, a course that reveals some of the secrets that TV Producers and Print Editors won’t tell you!

Hi, we’re Steve and Annette of Money Smart Family, and in our course, we will equip you with the tools and strategies to pitch your business, book or blog to local, regional, national and international producers and editors and receive a response like, “Yes, we want to feature your story”! But that begs us to ask:

Have you Ever Had These Thoughts?

After seeing a so-called “expert” in your field interviewed, you ask yourself, “Why did they get the publicity, the website traffic and the sales instead of me?

I have a limited budget for Advertising. But I know I have a great product or message that can really help people. I can’t spend thousands of dollars on TV, Radio or Newspaper advertising. What can I do?

We’ve got to say, we had those thoughts too.

We watched Oprah and saw people talking about living debt free (our area of expertise) and thought, “We have better information – we should be there!”

We tried to get there.

We tried really really REALLY hard, but only got crickets when we sent emails and press releases.

We encouraged our followers to write letters to producers on our behalf — and got no response from the networks.

We wondered what we were doing wrong – why weren’t we getting onto the national stage?

It’s Time to Start See Media Success

Here are two reasons why it’s time for YOU to start seeing media success:


Up til now, you’ve been in the dark about what it takes to get free media interviews. That is all going end. You can have the knowledge and the tools necessary to reach out to any media producer or editor and get their attention.

You can get the publicity you want and need. You can promote your business, book or blog and not have to pay for the publicity.


This is the day you’re going to stop second-guessing yourself and do something different. You’re going to take control of your PR life and start working on a proven, step-by-step plan to get free media exposure.

Once you start, you won’t look back because the possibilities are endless.

Here’s the Deal

So many of us are really good at what we do, whether it’s performing a service, manufacturing a product, writing or inspiring people.  Our skills cover the gamut of industries and services, but few of us know anything about reaching out to people in the media.

What Does Work to Get The Attention of the Media?

We learned early on that if we were going to win media attention, we were going to have to find out how to speak their language. We needed to discover how they worked and understand their goals and the pressure they operate under.

We needed to step into their world!

Once we started learning about them and their needs, we changed the way we crafted our media pitches. And we started winning . . . and the winning hasn’t stopped.

Every month we are contacted by two or three different media outlets for interviews. And we aren’t even trying.

This isn’t a freakin’ fairy tale, it’s going to become your reality! We know because we’ve been there and that’s why we created this course.

A Chicago Interview That Kept Growing

Steve & Annette Economides with daughter Becky on the Windy City Live set with Valerie Warner and Roe Conn

A few years ago we were invited to speak at a university in Indiana. We knew that we would stop by and visit Steve’s dad in Chicago, so we researched local TV shows there.

We reached out to Windy City Live and pitched an interview. It took a few weeks of back and forth to nail down the details, but we finally landed the interview — a 5-minute segment.

A few days before we arrived the producer told us that because we had so much material to cover that they’d give us two segments.

The morning of the show, the executive producer made a decision to give us 3 segments – 17 minutes of airtime reaching the 3rd largest TV market in the nation.

If we had to buy that air-time it would have cost at least $10,000. But because we knew how to pitch and how to make it easy for the producer, they gave us the airtime and . . . much more than we expected.

It was a real bump for our website and book sales.

We got the spot by applying what we teach in the MoneySmart Free Media Course.

Helping Others Get Free Media Exposure

Over the past 15 years we’ve helped scores of friends, from Pastors to Coaches and Bloggers to Author, learn how to pitch and win media appearances. In the past, several of them had paid money to appear on TV.

We showed them how to do it without spending a dime.

This is exactly why we created this course. We want to give you the tools to pitch and win Free Media Exposure.

Imagine what it will feel like to be totally prepared with a powerful pitch for a targeted media outlet. You send the pitch and a few days later you get the interview.

WOW! What a great feeling!

You don’t just have to believe us. Below are some real people that we’ve helped to get on TV without spending a dime. And each one of them has continued to land free media appearances ever since.

Someday soon, you’re name and media story could be included on this page! That would be an awesome thing to see happen!

In the past, I paid a marketing company to get me on TV to promote my coaching and physical therapy practice. It definitely wasn’t cheap.

When I met Steve & Annette and they shared their secrets, I couldn’t believe that it could be so simple.

I prepared my website and followed their instructions for pitching to TV producers. Within a few months, I had my first totally free National TV spot on The List Show.

I’m hooked! I’ve been doing interviews on radio, TV and in industry-specific magazines and websites ever since then.

While I have not taken this course from Steve & Annette, I know this about them:

“I’ve interviewed Steve & Annette several times on my radio program. And that led to doing seminars together. I’ve watched, amazed as they have pitched and landed multiple weekly media spots to promote our seminars without spending a dime!

They truly know how to pitch like pros and earn free media exposure anytime they want.”

“I have a website and a compelling debt success story, but I wasn’t getting much media coverage. I invited Steve to be a guest on my podcast where he shared some of his tips for landing free media. It was fantastic and got me started thinking of the possibilities.”

Why is this course expensive? 

We feel that the price is personal, and it can be defined as what you find valuable. We’ve intentionally kept the cost of this course reasonable so more gritty, hardworking business people, author, and bloggers could get out there and share their stories and products.

We know of other media training courses that cost $1000+. If you calculate the value of a local or national media spot, you know that you’ll earn your money back with just a few of these spots. But, can you afford to spend that amount of money right now? Our course is just as detail-oriented as these other training courses, but half in price. We call that a steal.

Couldn’t I just hire a PR Firm?

Well, truth be told, you could hire a PR Agency to pitch your business, book or blog.

A well-connected PR person will probably land you some local and regional media coverage. But ask yourself these questions

  • Will it be profitable?
  • How long will it take?
  • And more importantly, what is it going to cost?

A low-cost PR Agency will charge you a minimum of $500 per month and probably lock you into a one-year contract. A price like that is typically out of reach for entrepreneurs, small business owners, bloggers, or authors.

The MoneySmart Free Media Course costs way less than all of these options. And with your determination, it can be just as profitable — maybe even more profitable.

Can you guarantee that I’ll succeed at getting free media exposure if I take this course? 

Nothing in life is guaranteed, but we promise that we are teaching you the exact strategies and steps that we took to earn over $18 million dollars in free media exposure. This will all depend on the time and effort that you put into it. However, if you aren’t satisfied with the course after the first few sessions (or within 14 days of signing up), you don’t feel like this course is right for you, all you need to do is send us an email and you’ll receive a complete refund—no questions asked.
