Holiday Gift Guide Pitch Package
from 3,500.00

Holiday Gift Guide Pitching is a very timely and targeted strategy. You only have a small window for your product to be considered for gift guides in the printed pages of magazines. You’ll have a second chance months later, after the print magazine has completed its issue and sent it to the printer, when the digital versions of those magazines, blogs, and TV stations begin looking for gift guide ideas closer to publishing time on the web or TV.

GETTING READY CHECKLIST

Before buying this service, make sure you have the following in place:

  • High resolution photo on white background.

  • Pictures of the products in different “real life” situations.

  • Inventory. Know for sure that you will have the inventory to fill any orders.

  • HOLIDAY NOV/DEC (print magazines): July 1 - August 15

  • HOLIDAY NOV/DEC (digital and TV): October 1 - November 10

  • VALENTINES DAY (print magazines): October 1 - November 15

HOW IT WORKS

You will be paired with one of Tin Shingle’s Pitch Whisperers.

  • DISCOVERY
    You and your Pitch Whisperer will talk by phone to discover which of your products you want to pitch, and why. Who is your target audience? How will we reach them in different ways in different magazines? We will discuss.

  • 5 PITCHES
    Your Pitch Whisperer will write 5 different pitches for different Gift Guide themes, and format it in an email. Suggested Subject Line will be included. The Subject Line is very important!

  • PICTURE ATTACHMENT
    Your pitch can include a picture to get the writer or producer more excited about the product. Your Pitch Whisperer can advise you on the best picture or photo collage. If you need graphic design help to make this image, select one of Tin Shingle’s packages here that includes designing an attachment for you.
