Writers! #Pit2Pub 5 Tricks I Learned Today

I didn’t know about the #Pit2Pub when I woke up today. Late this morning I took a break from work. I saw it trending and looked up the rules on  Kristin D. VanRisseghem’s blog. But just following the rules isn’t enough to get noticed. Here are the tricks I used to get four publishers to ❤ my pitch. So, it wasn’t until after lunch that I was ready to make my first pitch.

  1. Use a picture. It’s eye catching.
  2. Like every publisher’s tweet that’s involved.
  3. Retweet other pitches that I liked.
  4. Thanked those that retweeted my pitch.
  5. Followed those that retweeted my pitch.

Now I’ll research those 4 publishers and see if I want to work with them.

Oh and for the future here are what’s coming up that’s similar to the event that happened on Twitter today.
