045: How to pitch a publication

Welcome to another episode of the Human Connection podcast, I’m your host Brittney Lynn and today’s episode is our last episode in our “how to” series and we are covering how to pitch yourself to a publication!

Before we dive into the episode, I want to share with you I am running my free 5 day challenge Pitchfest again next week, starting October 12!

This free challenge helps you land your first podcast interview, publication quote, or local tv interview!


You’ll learn: 

  • Day 1: Why PR is one of the best ways to increase your reach in 2020 and how to narrow in on your pitching purpose so you can be confident that media outreach will yield positive business results
  • Day 2: How to identify the topics you can pitch so that you are positioning yourself as a leading expert in your industry
  • Day 3: How to figure out the best places to pitch yourself so that you can get in front of the right audience who are actually interested in what it is that you sell
  • Day 4: The tools you need in place to pitch yourself (all free!) so you can easily incorporate media pitching into your weekly routine without spending hours wasting time
  • Day 5: How to craft your first pitch and SEND IT (happy dance included!)


Also there is a pop up Facebook group where I’ll go live each day answering your pitching questions and helping you nail down your message. 

PLUS this time there will be some sweet bonuses for those who participate and get that pitch sent. It may or may not include Amazon gift cards and a chance to win a free spot in my course, Impact + Influence. Maybe. 

Head to to grab your spot!
