WANT ME TO PUT YOUR INVENTION/PRODUCT
ON A NATIONAL TALK SHOW?

Each year I have about 5000 new products pitched to me by PR agencies, inventors, retailers, entrepreneurs and manufacturers.

I can’t keep track of all of these products— it’s just too many

My only solution — let you know what type of products I need as the TV shows give me segment themes

Every month I do a segment for NBC’s Today Show— and every month they give me a segment theme

These segments are 100% editorial — there is NO fee

Please only “pitch” your product to me when your product fits that month’s theme

"Pitching" your product to me for consideration for an upcoming editorial TV segment is really simple

Each month, or whenever they want a Greenberg Gadget segment, the TV show’s producers give me a "segment theme.” For example, it could be “Road Trip Gadgets” or “Ghoulish Gadgets for Halloween” or “Holiday Gift Ideas under $30"

Once I have a “segment theme” from the producers, I begin my gadget hunt. As part of the process I post that “segment theme” in 4 venues:

  • I tweet on Twitter using my handle @stevetv and I’ve started to use the hashtag #segmenttheme so it’s easier to find my posts on Twitter
  • I post it on Facebook, not on my personal page, but on my “fan” page at www.facebook.com/stevetv
  • I usually post a query on Profnet.com
  • AND I put out a request on “Help A Reporter Out” also known as HARO

If you follow me on one or more of the above venues — you'll know what I'm looking for at any given time. In the case of the Today Show — I get a new segment theme every month and by the way — at this moment in time, the Today Show really only wants products under $100.

IF your invention/product truly FITS that theme — then please let me know — contact me through this website or via email. Your product MUST be available for viewers to buy on the web or in a retail store. It can not be on a crowdfunding site.

So once you’ve determined your product FITS my segment theme, then email me:

  • a few lines about your product
  • the price
  • a web-link
  • one LOW RES image (3”x 3”)
  • and where viewers can buy the product
Please send it in a format I can cut & paste the info and image onto a Word document

Please do it quickly since I only have a couple of days to pull together my product list.

IF your invention/product is a “stretch” and really doesn’t fit that month’s theme, then hold off contacting me and wait until the segment theme REALLY FITS your invention/product

Once I’ve gone over the invention/products submitted to me, I then create a list of 20-30 products and submit the list to the show’s producers—and then the producers narrow the list to the 8-12 products for that TV segment.

If your product is selected I will contact you immediately with all the details.

It's that simple.
