Episode 25: How to Repurpose Content and Build Clout with Media Submissions

Welcome to episode twenty-five of the Cocktails & Content Creation Podcast! For this episode, we’re chatting with Alessandra Pollina, founder Quotable Media Co., about how to repurpose content and build clout with media submissions. 

In our twenty-fifth episode you’ll learn:

  • What is a media submission
  • How to pitch your idea to a publication
  • How to repurpose Instagram captions and other content into articles
  • Why submitting content to publications can help turn you into an expert in your field
  • Why you shouldn’t pitch the same article to many outlets at the same time

About our Guest:

Alessandra Pollina is the founder of Quotable Media Co., a PR and media company working to elevate female entrepreneurs and business owners. 

Alessandra grew up in a small town in Vermont before moving to Boston to attend Boston University’s College of Communication. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Communications with a focus on public relations, and a minor in anthropology. Throughout her college years she held many internships in the PR field at some of the best agencies in Boston. This vast array of experiences became the foundation of her PR career and positioned her to launch her own agency in 2012.

Stemming from a passion for female entrepreneurship and working to amplify the voices of others, in 2016 she founded the Female Millennial Entrepreneurs Boston networking group which aims to bring like minded entrepreneurs and business owners together for in-person connection and learning experiences. In 2019 she launched Quotable: A Female Millennial Entrepreneur Podcast, a podcast by and for female millennial entrepreneurs, inspired by the group but with an international reach. Most recently, in 2020 she launched Quotable Magazine, a print and online magazine also geared toward female entrepreneurship. 

She lives in Boston with her husband and 6-year-old son.
