You’ll explore the characteristics of successful story pitches then learn the techniques that make them work. We’ll help you understand what makes journalists pay attention to and respond to pitches then show you how to use this knowledge when pitching stories.

Our media relations experts will discuss the most common issues that make pitches fail and show you how to overcome these.

 

  • Come up with strong stories and angles for your target media
  • Write subject lines that get your email opened
  • Craft brilliant introductions and strong calls to action
  • Learn to keep pitches short and to the point
  • How to follow up properly (and without being annoying)
  • Work around the news cycle and understand newsjacking
