What to Pitch NOW: August 2017

It’s late summer, can you believe it? This time every year I wonder how it all got away from me. Anyway, it’s August, but the press does not take a vacation or a summer break. Well, they do have summer Fridays though. but that’s a whole different story. Do you know what you should be pitch right now? Online publications¬†are focused on fall, and print has moved on to focus on winter. Remember, online is about 1 to 3 months ahead on coverage, and print takes the lead at 3 to 6 month ahead. Here are some things you may want to consider when pitching your products and services this month:

  • Holiday gift guides (it’s not too late yet)
  • Gifting ideas (i.e. gifts for the hostess, etc.)
  • Holiday parties and decor
  • New years focused
  • End of summer stories
  • Back to school
  • Gratitude
  • Fall styles
  • Winter styles
  • Holiday getaways
What else are you guys pitching this month?!
