019 What Do Journalists Want?

by | Dec 6, 2021 | Podcast

We work very closely with journalists – obviously – day to day -and often we introduce national journalists to our entrepreneur clients. Last week we held a VIP meet the media day and I thought I’d share with you some of the feedback we got there as when you’re pitching this kind of info is gold!


In this episode hear the top 5 tips from journalists themselves when it comes to pitching content to them. 

These cover:-

  1. Connecting as a human
  2. Having a clear mission but not over selling it
  3. Being specific with your headlines
  4. Being timely and considering deadlines and keywording your email
  5. Trying to give them all the answers
If you’re a female entrepreneur with a mission led business, who is ready to get in the press sharing our story or your knowledge then this episode is for you!
