Are your pitches just sitting in your drafts waiting for you to press send?
I’ve been there too, like so many of us have, and I want to help your pitches move from the drafts folder to sent! Sending out a new pitch can be nerve wracking, especially if you’re not feeling 100% confident. I find that people often get through what they think of as the hard part– coming up with ideas, building their media list, finding the media contact info, drafting a pitch, and then the minute they feel they should send the email there’s something that kind of holds them back or they get a little anxious about actually pressing send, without even really knowing why.
Usually feeling anxious about doing something like this comes from not feeling totally 100% sure about it- either that you’re doing it right or that it will come across right. So here are a couple of things that will make you more confident in feeling ready to actually press send, and even better, to feel excited for what will come from your pitch!
