Pitching 101 with Dave Fleet

Filed under: Online discoveries & resources — by caramitchell @ 12:19 am

-Dave Fleet takes us  “Back to Pitching Basics”-

This posts makes it clear about what to do and what not to do as far as pitching goes – and Dr. V has us on the right track.

I saw this post linked to on PRos in Training and it’s definitely useful to our class. My group just met today to work on a PR assignment and we found ourselves talking and being strategic about what makes a good pitch – when we finished we thought we had done a pretty good job pitching for this assignment.

This post puts our thoughts about what makes a good pitch into black and white and reaffirms some of the guesses about which direction to take in pitching.

p.s.: Read the comments, some PRofessionals are a bit wary about what us upcoming PR practitioners are learning- just proof that we should know a/b what this post is discussing, so check it out!

  2. That was a really helpful post Cara! I subscribed to Dave Fleet’s blog. I like how in the post you are writing about, he says what to put in a news release, and then says what to write in a pitch. I think it makes it easier to understand how to do them, and how they are different, by seeing his suggestions right beside each other.
