Overnight you can go from being an unknown to a household name….
Have you ever wondered why some people appear in O, The Oprah Magazine once or multiple times and skyrocket to stardom? You’re about to discover their secrets.
People and businesses just like you have found that one single mention in Oprah’s magazine can blast off their business from earth to the stratosphere. And remarkably that is often just the beginning. They frequently find that being in O The Oprah Magazine sparks a series of other media mentions that transforms their business into one that’s in a never-ending growth cycle that often experiences delightful and surprising results.
Take Lesley Hatfield whose company NiteSweatz Inc. was featured twice in O. Today Hatfield is a regular contributor to CNBC’s TV show “The Big Idea” hosted by Donny Deutsch. Entrepreneur Magazine featured a major two-page spread on NiteSweatz. And while Hatfield’s company made $1 million in sales that year they were on track to double that to $2 million the next year.

Would you like to follow in the footsteps of Lesley Hatfield and others like her who have taken their appearance in Oprah’s magazine and leveraged it to become respected and well known, not to mention wealthy?
If you’re someone who has tried to get into the magazine without success you’re not alone. Thousands of people like you have emailed, faxed or snail mailed numerous press releases, lots of ideas, plump packages packed with materials, and dozens of products-to no avail.
But the problem is most of these ideas and things are not properly packaged to appeal to Oprah’s editors. And since people don’t know it, they just keep blindly sending in stuff thinking that one day, some day, someone will take notice.
It’s not your fault that you don’t understand what the editors want.
How could you know unless you’ve studied the magazine thoroughly, have the brilliant mind of a publicist and developed the right story, product, business or cause that the Oprah editors are looking for?
Thousands of people want to get their products chosen as one of Oprah’s favorite things in that special section of the magazine. Entrepreneurs who run a business understand that they can double or triple it’s size by getting mentioned in the magazine.
People who sell products know that a photo with a blurb can mean tens of thousands of dollars in orders in an instant.
Charities, non-profits and causes believe that Oprah would love what they stand for and want to be a part of their mission.
Authors think that their book is right for Oprah.
Others have a life story or experience they think is perfect for Oprah.
If you’ve been thinking that it would be one of the best things that could happen to you to get into O, you’re right.
I’m Susan Harrow, media coach, marketing strategist, author of the bestselling book Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul™ (HarperCollins), and CEO of Harrow Communications Inc.. I’ve taught hundreds of people the secrets and strategies to get the attention of the editors at O magazine in my seminars. In addition, I’m featured on the CNBC The Oprah Effect and I’ve worked with a number of clients personally to get them prepared for The Oprah Show and to get them featured in O, The Oprah Magazine.
But for this ebook I’ve gone beyond sharing what I, or my clients know about getting into the magazine, and have interviewed over a dozen people did it. Some were already successful in their own right, others were struggling entrepreneurs, and the rest were growing their businesses gradually and wanted to see a big jump in sales. But regardless of their business status or success-ratio all of them would agree that Oprah “put them on the map.”
What’s more, I’ve also interviewed publicists who have literally cracked the code, and gotten their clients in the magazine not just once, but multiple times. I’m committed to sharing all of those tips, techniques and strategies with you-no holding back.
So if you dream of getting into O, The Oprah Magazine and want to see your product, service or cause pictured right there in color, radiantly standing out, in the next edition of the magazine, read on.

If This Sounds Like You, Continue On
Whether you are an author, entrepreneur, expert, maker, product creator, philanthropist, community activist, non-profit, aspiring author, or person with an amazing story to tell, O The Oprah Magazine could put you, your business, product or cause on the proverbial map….
If you know what the editors want, how to approach them, and how to package your story, your writing or your product properly.
Sell Yourself Effectively
Whether you know it or not, you are selling yourself, your story or your product. Many of the successful products and people that are featured in O are coupled with great stories that sell themselves. It could be an event that comes alive in the telling, a fascinating world view, a moving incident, an unusual series of experiences, a success story fraught with trouble, a product that inspires, a life story of overcoming great odds to triumph in the end.
You’re not just selling a thing or idea you’re selling a feeling, a lifestyle, a way of looking at the world, a life worth living. But whatever you are selling it needs to be in alignment with is important to Oprah. Period. In Get Into O Magazine I’ll show you how to make sure that whatever it is you have is packaged in such a way that shows you understand what’s close to Oprah’s heart.
Synergy Between Super Soul Sunday and
O, The Oprah Magazine
What many people don’t realize is that getting into O, The Oprah Magazine, or chosen for Oprah’s favorite things, could be the first step to getting on Super Soul Sunday. While the staff of the magazine and the TV show have different themes those themes and subject matters often overlap and complement each other.
I’m going to tell you a secret that most people don’t know…There is a synergy between O Magazine and Oprah’s show. Getting featured in the magazine may be the very thing you need to get invited to be on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. It can be a simple stepping stone to get on the show. Sometimes a person gets on the show first and then is featured in the magazine and vice versa. Sometimes this happens over a period of a few months or years. That part is a mystery.
What is not a mystery is the fact that getting into Oprah’s Magazine can mean publicity on a grand scale. Not only is the magazine read by 2.65 million people, (mostly women), it’s estimated that 6 people read every issue so you’re actually reaching over 18 million potential clients.

18 MILLION POTENTIAL CLIENTS
In addition to an enormous and loyal readership it’s a magazine that doesn’t get thrown away. So you don’t just get a mad rush of business once, but for many months. The people we interviewed verified this when sales rushed in month after month after month, sometimes creating a geyser of sales for years.
Get Calls and Orders From All Over the World
There are many areas of the magazine where you might be featured, profiled, quoted or reviewed. One woman, participating in a teleclass I gave, reported that although she had been interviewed almost a year before, the story had just appeared in the magazine that month. She received calls for her services from all over the world and her phone was ringing off the hook. And she was just one of many people interviewed for the story, not even the central figure.
Like Winning The Academy Award
A woman entrepreneur we profiled, whose product was featured in O The Oprah Magazine, noted that getting in O “is sort of like winning the Academy Award. It’s definitely a distinction that validates your product like no other publication.”
She would know. Getting in the magazine not only brought her 60% more business in thirty days, but brought much needed awareness to a cause close to her heart.
Her company pledged $100,000 to her beloved cause, and then gave $1,000,000 over three years to grant patients’ wishes and to sponsor a nationwide online resource site. Being in O made the issue visible on a grand scale. I’ll show you how you, too, can enjoy the big rush of new business and get more than enough money from your profits to donate generously to the charity of your choice.
Set Yourself Apart From Your Competition
Knowing how valuable it is to get in O, consider your competition and understand that, like Super Soul Sunday, the standards at the magazine are some of the toughest in the industry. O, The Oprah Magazine prides itself in being a publication that values beauty, courage, attention to the finer points of relationships, and people doing amazing things in the world. I’ll show you how you can embody the qualities that are important to Oprah and her editors and set you apart from your formidable competition.
Get into O, Make it To Oprah’s Favorite Things Round-Up
According to an article on a popular blog, “For 14 years, Oprah’s Favorite Things was the hottest ticket in television. The sun may have set on The Oprah Winfrey Show, but Oprah’s Favorite Things list lives on in O, The Oprah Magazine. Every year, Adam Glassman, the magazine’s creative director, and his team gather items in a top secret style closet for Oprah’s consideration.
‘I have the greatest job in the world,’ he says. ‘We spend so many months hunting, gathering, looking, searching, trying to find things (a) that Oprah will like and (b) try to find things that maybe Oprah hasn’t seen yet.’”
Did you know that one way to get chosen for Oprah’s Favorite Things is to get your product first in the magazine?
It’s one of the first places Oprah’s producers look when they are culling through hundreds of possible products. After all, these items have already passed through a very tough screening process to make it to the magazine in the first place.
But even then, it’s not easy. And it’s no guarantee. In fact, one source told me that, when was on the air, The Oprah Winfrey Show got over 15,000 products a day. That’s per day! And those are people who, in the past, hoped that their products would just make it to any Oprah show. Your product has to be pretty special to get on the most anticipated round-up of the year. And one more thing. Oprah really does have to LOVE it for it to be selected.
But let’s think of that as icing on the cake. For now your goal is to get into the magazine that could then lead to being selected for the creme de la creme, the Oprah’s Favorite Things End-of-Year Round-Up.

The O feature got us into over 100 retail outlets, says Denise Loren of bowwowtv.com, whose company makes DVDs for dogs, which increased her business by 75%. With no money spent on advertising, they made $100,000 in retail/wholesale dollars last year.
The impact for the company once we were in O was that it legitimized us. And that’s important for a one-product company.
|An entrepreneur whose site is geared toward women noted that her team was fulfilling 500 to 600 orders a day during the month of May when she was mentioned in O Magazine versus the usual 100 per day. She calculated that sales went up by about 60% in that thirty-day period. Her registered website users soared from 70,000 to 150,000 women per month.
|Stephen Shapiro, author of Goal-Free Living: How to Have the Life You Want NOW!, says that his article helped springboard him into Entrepreneur, Investors Business Daily, and Family Circle. His speaker bookings increased dramatically, he got listed as one of Tom Peters’ “cool friends” and is in process of shooting a pilot for a TV show.
|Author of Yes Lives in the Land of No, BJ Gallagher says, “I’d been trying to get the attention of this high-powered agent forever. Just last month the top-notch agent signed me to an exclusive contract representing my next book. Did my O article make her more inclined to say ‘yes’ to my book proposal? Undoubtedly.”
|The volume of Dr. Volgman’s cardiology program at Rush University Medical Association expanded substantially. “O put the program on the map,” says publicist Chris Rush.
|Genevieve Piturro who founded the pajama project, a charity to give new pjs to poor kids, went from 5 chapters to 30 and growing (Today they have 50!). She got 9,000 new pajamas donated and a donation of $5,000. In five years she collected 85,000 pairs of pjs for needy children.
After appearing in O The Oprah Magazine, Genevieve was on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah challenged the 300 person audience to bring in as many pjs as they could – with a catch. They were only allowed to buy one pair per person. Collectively the audience brought in over 32,000 pajamas for her charity. In addition to appearing on the Oprah Show Genevieve was a guest on Oprah & Friends XM radio. So Genevieve got into O magazine, on the Oprah show and then on Oprah’s radio station.
