Here's How to Get on Movie Press Lists and Get Those Coveted Press Boxes
(Shhh ... these my secrets y'all!)
If you know me then you know my name is Shaye and I'm the Entertainment Editor and Owner of Popcorn and Tequila + Poporn and Tater Tots, a family site I run with my 8 year old daughter, who apparently is famous now, thanks to a gig she had this Summer!
(If you've seen Soul Pancake's Kid Correspondent YouTube series this year that's her! She's their Kid Correspondent. If you haven't, check it out, it's super cute!)
However, this is about ME, and what you probably don't know about ME, is how I became an Entertainment Writer and that I went from singing "you don't know my name" all last year and being frustrated every time I saw another influencer post their cute movie swag to finally getting press emails from all the big streaming sites!
You see just LAST YEAR, I was in the same position as you probably are right now! Wanting to write about all the latest movies and tv shows but never getting the emails with the right information!
(Or I'd have to wait until a BIG outlet posted the info and grab info from them.)
It was a mess! And it frustrated TF outta me! I hated feeling like I wasn't good enough to get those swag boxes 'everyone else' got! I hated having to stalk the internet to see if someone would post about the newest movie on Twitter so I could basically eat off of their crumbs!
And then one day last year I told myself I'd stop b*tching and get my name on those lists!
A year later and I'm happy to say I did just that! Now I get emails from Disney, Disney Plus, Netflix, Hulu and HBO Max almost every day! And now I'm finally ready to share how I did it with YOU!
(So you don't have to struggle like I did.) You're welcome!
Oh and you'll also be added to my Entertainment Writers Newsletter + Community where I'll share tips, updated contacts, and opportunities twice a month!
