Elly Klein, The Relationship Writer (that’s me!), in the media
My first TV appearance – Studio 10, Monday 3rd June 2019. If you’re on a computer (as opposed to a mobile device), this video probably looks ENORMOUS. No one’s head should be that big – especially not mine! I recommend minimizing the screen to watch the video.
While I’ve been quoted in many articles and done radio and podcast interviews, I’m proud to say my first TV appearance was on Studio 10 alongside Australian TV legends Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Angela Bishop, Joe Hildebrand and Sarah Harris. Exciting! Studio 10 is a live daily (Monday – Friday) morning show that’s nationally broadcast across Australia on Channel 10.
This segment was about how to improve your online dating profile, which included me rewriting Maurice Parker’s profile.
♥ The No. 1 problem with most online dating profiles
♥ Maurice’s dating profile ‘before and after’ my writing
♥ Why I included a personal piece of info about Maurice
♥ My top 3 tips for selecting your dating profile pics
♥ How the profiles I’ve written have led to marriages
My media coverage as a dating and relationship expert
I’m proud to say I’ve been published or featured as a dating and relationship expert in the following reputable media outlets in Australia and the USA, which include TV, radio, podcasts, magazines and websites.
In 2014, my book was selected by Hollywood Swag Bag as one of 20 Australian products to be gifted to Ellen DeGeneres for Christmas, so that’s pretty cool!
