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 publicationsΒ 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?!
