04 Apr Getting on Ellen
Julie posted a question I get alot these days…how do I get my products on Ellen? First of all, I’m not complaining it’s a relief not to get asked about Oprah for a change. But it begs a larger question as to how you can get featured on any of these shows, whether it’s Ellen, Regis and Kelly, The View or Montel. (Hey don’t know Montel he’s got really great ratings.) There are a couple of different ways you can do it. You can get a random mention if you send in the product to the “blind” address they usually have on the website. These do work sometimes, but it’s a bit like trying to win the lottery. Another way is to suggest your product as a giveaway to audience members. Each show has its own rules. Right now Ellen only gives away products that are worth $100 or more. But that’s still worth it. Keep in mind too, Ellen goes on hiatus after May, so if you want to do it, act fast. I’m not going to post names here, but feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more specifics. Anyone that has a great success story, respond and let us know how you did it!
