Meet Your Mentors


Mark Simon

"I love going to conferences with our clients. The best part is when one of them gets a follow up meeting after a pitch and they are so excited!"

Co-Founder of
Sell Your TV Concept Now, Inc.


Jeanne Simon

"Honestly, most of our clients tell us that they don't want to go alone. They don't want to ever feel like they don't know what they're doing. They believe in their shows and they are committed to doing whatever it takes to succeed. It takes preparation and it takes being in the right place at the right time and that's what the Hit Maker Tour is all about"

Co-Founder of
Sell Your TV Concept Now, Inc.

Watch this video of Mark coach a client on his pitch and you'll be amazed at what he does in under a minute.

Have you ever tried to get a network exec on the phone or tried to get them to answer an email before you've met them? HA! Good luck!

We call it the Hollywood Catch 22: Network gatekeepers tell you that you need an agent to submit an idea. And agents tell you that you have to have a track record before they’ll represent you. Don't worry! There is a way to get around the gatekeepers and it works every time. When you go to TV pitch conferences you'll be able to meet face-to-face with network execs - no agent or attorney required!
(Our record is 33 meetings in one day!)

Past Hit Maker Tour alum, Shabum, caught up with Mark at NAPTE last month and together they celebrated Shabum’s show getting picked up by Telemundo USA.

Ryan and Jordan Augustine Just Signed a Contract!

Ryan and Jordan signed a contract for their imaginative animation, Adam and the Octopus Club, with studio powerhouse Breakthrough Entertainment. They pitched the owner of Breakthrough Entertainment at a meeting we set up for them at Kidscreen Summit.

You go guys!

"Mark and Jeanne were amazing for us! They are the best resource we've ever had. And the most comprehensive resource to help us prepare and hone our pitch. Mark and Jeanne are amazing because they are great at networking. They got us some great meetings, like with Ken Faire, president of Nerd Corps, and with Nat Abraham, president of Breakthrough Entertainment. These are amazing studios! Thanks Mark and Jeanne. It was a great experience."

Hit Maker Tour Success Story

"But I tell you what: Coming here, I got way way more than I paid for; from day one when I signed up. And then I got several emails, and then phone calls, and then conference calls. More information than I ever expected. They took me from the very inception of the idea of my show to, all the way through to literally being here to help me pitch my show, and now I might have a DEAL from being at this conference."

HIT MAKER TOUR FAQ

Q: How do I find out if my show is ready to pitch at a conference?

A: You're welcome to schedule a complimentary strategy session with Jeanne Simon, co-founder of Sell Your TV Concept Now, to talk through what you've done so far on your show and the steps you'll need to take to get it ready to pitch. Call Denyse at 407-351-0893 or email her at team@sellyourtvconceptnow.com to set up your complimentary strategy session.

Q: Should I go on the Hit Maker Tour if I'm not ready to pitch my show and I just want to find out how the conferences work and make connections?

A: YES! The Tour is for you if you want to maximize your conference investment. On the Tour you'll make priceless connections with top network and production company execs at private meetings we host. Plus, you'll gain insider knowledge on how to pitch when you’re ready, what you'll need in your pitch package, and how to get meetings with the network execs you want to target....plus much more.

Q :Does Sell Your TV Concept Now act as my agent?

A: No we are not agents. We do not pitch shows for others because we know show creators are absolutely the best people to pitch their shows. Only you have the passion for your show that it takes to get a buyer interested. Plus, agents work on commission and get a percentage of your earnings. When you work with us you retain 100% ownership of your show and your earnings.

Q: I've heard you have to have a pilot. How do I find out what I need to pitch my show?

A: First of all – YOU DO NOT NEED TO PRODUCE PILOT. It is a very expensive waste of time and money. You're welcome to schedule a complimentary strategy session with Jeanne Simon, co-founder of Sell Your TV Concept Now, to find out exactly what you need to pitch your show. Call Denyse at 407-351-0893 or email her at team@sellyourtvconceptnow.com to set up your complimentary strategy session.

Q: How many people do you take on the Hit Maker Tour?

A: We limit the number to twenty attendees per conference to ensure you get the time and attention you need from your on-site Hit Maker Tour mentor.

Q: How do I pitch more than one show?

A: One at a time. (Ha...bet you already knew that!) We go over pitching multiple shows to the same buyer in the Hit Maker Tour training. It not only can be done (even in a speed pitch) we recommend pitching two or more shows to a conference to further maximize your investment.

Q: How many shows can I work on in the Hit Maker Tour?

A: You may work on one show. In other words, you’ll submit the same show for both material reviews. You may purchase additional material reviews for your other shows.

Q: Do you ever partner with people for a percentage of a deal?

A: No, we do not partner with you because it is not in your best interests. We want you to own 100% of your show and keep any deals you make with a network as simple as possible. Complicated partnerships scare off networks for fear of possible lawsuits or issues between partners.

Q: What if I'm very confident about my TV concept, but I have no idea what to say in a pitch?

A: A big part of Hit Maker Tour training is about how to have a successful pitch meeting: the flow of a pitch meeting, what execs expect of you, the right terminology to use, developing a powerful pitch mindset, and what to say exactly in your pitch. The last virtual training session is entirely devoted to pitch practice for our members. When you work with us you will know what to say in your pitch.

Q: I've heard conferences are a waste of time because no real decision makers attend...Is that true?

A: Chris Linn, president of truTV, would be shocked to hear that along with all of the other senior level network execs who make it a priority to go to multiple conferencesevery year. They and their teams go to conferences to take pitches from people like you, network with their peers, finalize deals, and to stay on top of the latest trends in the TV biz.

Q: How do I get pitch meetings at conferences?

A: Most conferences have speed pitching sessions you sign up for once you’re registered and when you’re part of our Hit Maker Tour you’ll make priceless connections with top network and production company execs at private meetings we host. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of our FAST-ACTING BONUS to gain access to a closed door session we have the night before each conference. You’ll get to practice your pitch and get feedback from top network and production company execs.

Q: Can I pay you to pitch my show?

A: No. We do not pitch shows for others because we know show creators are absolutely the best people to pitch their shows. Only you have the passion for your show that it takes to get a buyer interested.

Q: Is the registration fee for the conference included in the fee for the Hit Maker Tour?

A: You pay separately for the conference registration fee and all travel expenses. They are not included in the Hit Maker Tour fee.
