302 - Pitch Your Power with Alice Draper
Alice Draper is a podcast publicist who is on a mission to make publicity easy and accessible for underrepresented women entrepreneurs at all stages of their businesses. She is the founder of the publicity business, Hustling Writers, for progressive coaches.
When Alice started building her business, she knew that publicity, in the right places, would garner her the authority she needed to position herself as a high-end copywriter. This came with an unplanned skill — the art of the pitch — which is how she ended up pivoting her business towards publicity. She has now written for Business Insider, HuffPost, Refinery29, VICE, and elsewhere.
She has been running Hustling Writers for over two years and in this time, she has secured her clients in over 500 podcasts including countless top 1% and top 0.5% podcasts.
When Alice isn’t building out publicity strategies or thinking of new story angles, she is taking advantage of her location independence by house-sitting with her partner in places like Tbilisi, Nairobi, or Cape Town.
She says, "Fear of rejection comes up so much in my work and - for women especially - I think it's the number one blocker between taking action. While men messing up, failing, being rejected, etc - and getting back on their feet - has been modeled and normalized, I don't think enough women have spoken about how we have 1) Failed and 2) Pivoted from these failures."
