#PitchPlease: The Course
The Course For Successfully Pitching Brands & Getting Paid Partnerships
You’re tired of sending pitches to brands only to wait forever for... no response. You’re frustrated because you have no idea what you’re doing wrong. You wonder if you’re even contacting the right people.
You wonder what it really takes to get a response from a brand, let alone a “yes” to a collab.
- How to personalize your pitch so brands were immediately interested in working with you?
- The specific information to include in your press kit to attract the collaborations that you truly want?

- The difference between a pitch, press kit, and a pitch deck—and the appropriate times to send each?
#PitchPlease teaches you how to do all of the above plus MUCH more.
As a blogger, I've worked with household name brands like Macy's, GAP, H&M, Wendy's, JCPenney & more over the last 2 years. More importantly, I have relationships with the brands and agencies I’ve worked with because of the correspondence and pitches I’ve sent them. Because I’m a genius? No. Because I figured out exactly how to narrow down the exact value I provide to brands and pitch it to them seamlessly.
Just because you have a press/media kit, doesn’t mean that brands will be impressed by you.
