What to Look for Before You Pitch a Publication

Are you ready to pitch your brand for media coverage, but not sure where to send that first pitch?

On this week’s episode, I’m diving into what to look for before you pitch a publication. Questions about this topic have been coming up a lot in the PR Bootcamp which will be opening again this fall, so I wanted to share some tips with my Quotable Podcast audience as well. If you’ve been thinking about doing your own PR, then these tips will be really helpful for you.

So many people are hesitant to start pitching because they don’t feel confident either in their story or in where they are pitching. I want to help you feel more confident and avoid the heartache that comes from pitching the wrong publications. The best place to start is learning to ask the right questions before you pitch so that when the time comes to pitch, you’re pitching the perfect publication for your story, and that means seeing good results. I want to help you find the right fit for your story- so listen in to hear exactly how to do that: be tailored and specific so you actually get good results.

“Tailor your pitch to what they already do or find a different outlet.”
