I’m featuring photos from my step dad’s brother if you’re wondering what’s up with the Zebra. He tours the world and these are from Africa. I’ll be doing that more often because I love the pictures he takes. Let’s get to today’s post. What if there was a secret in how to write the perfect pitch letter? I have many people asking me how to write the perfect pitch letter. Are you trying to land a guest blog post? Maybe you are reaching out to a major company asking them if they would give you free tickets or wanting to sample a product. They say the devil is in the details. I’m not a fan of the devil personally I think he is a wimpy jerk. So instead I’ll say there is one thing that could be blocking your perfect pitch letter. It may be you. There is a secret to the perfect pitch and I’ll share that in today’s video so make sure you watch to find out what that is. I know it’s shocking but the reality is that many times we put things in our pitch letter that shouldn’t be there and it hinders our chances. Some pitches are much too long or loaded with stats that many times haven’t been requested. Perhaps we don’t even pitch because we think there is absolutely no way we will get what we are asking for. So we don’t. Then we wonder why nothing is happening for our blog or our business. There is some good news for you. It’s not as difficult as you may think landing a guest blogging post on a major blog, or getting companies to send you products. However you should know the number one secret that could possibly make or break your perfect pitch letter. Click on the video and find out what that is. And just for fun today words of wisdom from Dr Seuss ” You have brains in your head you have feet in your shoes you can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
Please be sure to comment below because I read each and every one of them and if you have a question for next weeks video that you would like featured or just have something to say I’d love to hear from you. So in my best Arnold Schwateneggar voice “Do It Now.” Also someone asked about time management so here is a cute infographic for blogging hope you enjoy it.
