Tin Shingle's list of Editorial Calendars is searchable by media outlet, like Food Network, Craft Beer, Parents and Good Housekeeping, as well as by interest, including "Aging", "Interior Design" or "Food". Join today to get instant access! Please Note: Editorial Calendars for 2017 are just coming online, so we are making updates frequently as we get new outlets in.

"I have written numerous pitches before (with some success!), but after listening to the TuneUp "How to Write a Pitch That Gets Noticed by the Press," I picked up a ton of great tips. Definitely give it a listen if you haven't already!!" - Matt, Grateful Glass "I first discovered Tin Shingle about a year ago, and while this month is my first month as a paid subscriber, I have been attending your Wednesday webinars and learning what I can from your website over the last year. I'm so happy that I now have room in my budget to subscribe! Thank you for making such a wonderful resource for scrappy business owners." - Katharine, Founder of the Color Clutch

"I’ve been meaning to update you on how things went with the Academy Awards press pitch that I submitted to the Pitch Workshop in the Community Boards. We had some really great outcomes. Not only was our story shared on television news, it was also featured in our local newspaper and in a magazine! I can’t thank you enough for your feedback / coaching advice! It also helped give our Ecommerce team the ‘push’ they needed to make some tweaks to our website content. (I had been grilling them for weeks..!) Once they saw your feedback from Tin Shingle’s Community Boards, they realized how important it was to get our website updated to help tell our story about the Dreaming Zebra partnership with our Coloring Collection. Now – I’m in the process of coming up with a plan on how to utilize some of the celebrity photos from the event to help endorse our products and writing pitches to get our products featured on the Today Show, Star Magazine, etc." - Jessica Uriniuk, Marketing Director, The Lang Companies

Is Membership Right for You?

Before you get started, let's make sure it's a fit:

It's A Fit!

  • You are ready for your business to be seen online, in magazines and on TV.
  • Your business is in magazines and on TV, and you want more!
  • You have been working with a PR agency, and you are ready to take it in-house.
  • You work for a PR agency, and you'd like extra training and resources.
  • You want to know what is current and working right now in PR, social media and SEO.
  • You are looking for a place to connect with other entrepreneurs and business owners online to share ideas, get feedback, and cross-promote.

Not a Fit

  • You are looking for a PR agency to represent your business and conduct your outreach. Tin Shingle is not a PR or social media agency.
  • You are less interested in doing things right way, you want to learn how to do things the rushed way. Here is the secret: Once you learn to do it the right way, things will move a lot faster!
  • You are more interested in downloading contacts and less interested in creating long term relationships with the press and infuencers.

Are you a fit? Read these testimonials then let's get started!

Testimonials

I have to say I am coming up on Week 1 as a Tin Shingler and I cannot tell you how wonderful I feel. It's amazing to me now, how much I felt isolated with my business promotion issues. Now I can look on the forums and see we all have so many of the same issues! I feel the community. Its a good addiction. I got a lot out of the #TuneUp today as well. I have blocked that off in my future Wednesdays. If I can be there, I want that live energy! Thank you!!!

I was one of the #TuneUp call-ins in today, and I was so impressed! You guys have been on my radar the past few months, and now that I'm ready to go full steam ahead with marketing, I signed up this week! So glad I did... Thanks for tailoring some of your remarks towards my industry... I noticed! And was taking notes like crazy... until I had to leave at 1:03 to pick up my 4-year old from pre-school before they sat him out on the curb. I will look foward to hearing what I missed when the podcast is available. So, I swore that I wouldn't do Twitter, because I just didn't think I understood it, but you have won me over! Just downloaded the long-lead pitch podcast, as well as the desk pitch podcast. Thanks again, for creating this community!

I love the support you guys give and desperately needed the education and learning. You guys definitely have the mojo, the ideas and the inside track. We feel very lucky to have found Tin Shingle when we needed you (thanks Kami Darnell of SimpleSarongs!) and we preach the Tin Shingle gospel to every network event at which we speak.
