Why do we often feel like a magazine editor holds our future in their hands?
Will we ever feel comfortable pitching ourselves?
Believe me, I am right there with ya! Pitching ourselves is just about the hardest thing for most people – no matter what your business is.
I think the biggest tips I can give are to pitch on target, keep it short and concise, and really know who you are pitching to. Be sure to take the time do the research and really be sure that editor is the right one for your product. There is nothing more embarrassing than pitching to the wrong person!
I reached out to my experts to contribute to this article as I think it will help us all out to see other ways to approach editors. Let me know what you think and if you try any of the tips.
