Doing your own public relations and marketing is hard. There is a lot of noise out there which makes it tough for anyone promoting a brand, product, or cause to stand out.
Adding to the difficulty is all the complicated public relations advice from “experts” who often contradict each other.
What’s needed is something to help cut through the bullshit.
And to that end, three veterans of the Hollywood media machine came together to produce “Cut the Bull$hit: A Quick Guide to Getting Your Name or Product Out There, Somewhere!” and the reviews are stellar!
Here is the cover of this zany book, which is available now on Amazon:
As you can see, we are not taking ourselves too seriously here — but that doesn’t mean you should take the advice provided in Cut the Bull$hit lightly. After all, it comes direct from the mind of one of Hollywood’s most influential PR players: Zack Teperman, President of ZTPR, a lifestyle, entertainment and technology public relations agency which works with both stellar names as well as startups. In other words, he knows what the hell he is talking about because he does this day in and day out.
Zack wrote the poems in the book, so easy even children could follow along (however, don’t give this book to a kid!) and enlisted the help of Los Angeles-based marketing expert and digital content wizard Willie Pena to bring the poems to life with a series of whimsical, hilarious drawings of sheep characters sure to bring a smile to your face.
Some people have asked us: Why sheep? Well, public relations is a lot like herding sheep. People follow trends and influencers, and if you know the rules of the game you can herd the public’s attention towards YOU and get them to buy your product, watch your movie, or (ahem) read your book.
Rounding out the team is comedy writer Max Reisman, whose Hollywood credentials include stints writing for CBS and ABC and who, as editor, put the finishing touches on what is quickly becoming a must-own for everyone interested in public relations.
From the back cover:
