⁣⁣Hi everyone, today I thought I wanted to share some tips with you guys on how to sell a television show idea to a television station/company. ⁣⁣

If you’re curious on how to create one, from start to end, then please write a comment below and I’ll make a post on that too. ⁣⁣

So what I did was to: ⁣⁣⁣⁣
1. Be proactive; go on LinkedIn and find a few relevant people who works in a television company in the section you want to sell your idea: fx for children, young people, families, adults or elderly people. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
2. Write a few lines on why they should prioritise 15-30 minutes of meeting up with you. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
3. Sometimes it’s a question of a ‘numbers game’ regards to getting a ‘yes’ and booking a meeting. But please be patient and wait for their reply at least for 3 days before reaching out to more people who works in the field. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
4. Make sure that you’re idea is relevant to the time we live in and also suggest when to show it. Fx my television show idea was about children who starts at modelling and we send it at the/during Copenhagen fashion week. At the moment in time self esteem, body images and so on was hot topics (even for children in the age 12-14 years old) ⁣⁣⁣⁣
5. Be aware of your intention and your want. Fx my intention was to write myself into the show because my want was the television station to see my potential as a future children television presenter. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
6. If that’s the case for you too, then reflect upon this: why are you relevant? (Fx in my case I worked as a model myself, so it made sense for me to attend the show as well as some sort of ‘expert’) What’s interesting in your story that you can mix up with current trends, hot topics and so on. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
If you have any further questions on this, then please don’t hesitate to text me. Good luck! xx J⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣** DM/EMAIL me if you need help with making your dreams come true. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
