Our next feature in behind the placement is an article pitch that I did on behalf of a client to Bustle Magazine.

They are geared towards women and focuses on politics, entertainment, and on giving back. It’s for women and they have a very strong voice when it comes to politics.

Anika, my client, is a really interesting person in the feminist movement.

The takeaway for you, is that I highly recommend that you play-up your credentials when you’re pitching something. You want to give them a sense that you know what you’re talking about.

In this podcast I talked about:

  • What made Anika a perfect fit for this outlet
  • How did they draw upon Anika’s credentials for the pitch
  • How did they get a contact for Bustle
  • What process did they use to pitch to Bustle Magazine
