Do your blog writing pitches stink?
There’s an easy way to tell…you’re not getting ANY responses from editors or marketing directors.
That ever happen to you?
When you send an editor a rotten pitch for a blog post, there’s a good chance your approach makes you sound like a brain-dead zombie.
And there’s protocol for that in the Editor’s Universal Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse:
Hit delete. Writer may be infected. Quarantine inbox immediately. Warning, freelancer appears to be devoid of creativity, brain dead, unable to communicate with words. Do not engage.
If your blog writing pitch is so bad it makes an editor sick or triggers their zombie-response training to avoid you at all costs, it’s going to be tough to make a living writing.
So what are the telltale signs of a brain-dead pitch for a blog post? These mistakes will sicken an editor faster than the smell of rotting flesh.
