What’s the quickest way to an editor’s heart?
Comment on a past blog entry or article before launching in to your own pitch. Flattery will get you everywhere, but it also signals that you did some research and put in the time to identify a good fit before pitching.
A super special high five to Design Bloggers Conference alum Vera Vandebosch! After hearing Amy speak at the conference just one year ago, Vera put her Recipe for Press skills to work to promote her book “Scraps: Stylish Scrap Fabric Crafts to Stitch.”
The result? She’s earned a four-page spread in the UK’s Reloved Magazine, a week’s worth of guest blogging on Scottish website Cut Out and Keep, a blog mention on Studs & Pearls, and a feature on Huffington Post Home!
Next to come for Vera following a year of press success? “Scraps” will be part of the upcoming spring issue of Better Homes & Gardens and August’s issue of Vogue Patterns!
Cheers to Vera, a true Recipe for Press success!
