Interested in being featured on PR in Your Pajamas?
I’m always excited to meet new people and hear good ideas, but before you pitch me:
1. RESEARCH: Poke around the blog and read some of the posts. While I publish shorter posts, I prefer longer, authoritative posts that share exactly how to do something, in a tone that is friendly or funny but definitely, helpful in a big way.
2. TOPICS: If you have a topic in mind, do a quick search to determine if I have covered it before. I cover PR, social media, content marketing and lifestyle topics that help entrepreneurs balance a great business with a great life. You can still pitch the topic as long as you are sure you are either going to build on the original topic, or have a completely new way of approaching it.
3. SCHEDULE: I do not have a set publishing schedule. We have too many things in our inbox already, so I publish when awesome content is ready.
4. AUDIENCE: My readers are entrepreneurs, small business owners, PR and marketing students, marketers looking to refresh their skills in a fast-moving world. Overwhelmed and wearing too many hats, your article should give them tools, tips and techniques they can do today, on their own.
5. ORIGINALITY: I expect original, unpublished, high quality work and welcome opinion or controversy as long as you can back it up, both within the body of the article (with links to research, etc.) as well as in the comment stream. You can re-publish the article after 30 days but please make sure you include a sentence – at the start or end – that says, “This originally appeared on PR in Your Pajamas” and link to the original piece.
6. LINKS: You can put one link within the article to your own blog as long as it is relevant. I appreciate an internal link to another PR in Your Pajamas article if it works well. Too many links get stripped.
7. BIO AND PHOTOS: Please provide an author photo and bio. A link to your site and one social media profile is acceptable. Any photo you provide should be acceptable for commercial use. We will provide a title photo but you should have rights to all other photos you provide us.
8. FINAL REVIEW: Once we agree on a topic, I will have to review the entire article before publishing. If at that point it doesn’t seem to fit guidelines and we don’t publish it, you are of course free to publish it elsewhere.
9. SHARING: I’d love it if you actively share your post within your own social networks once published.
10. MY NAME: Nothing gets me crankier than addressing me as Pam. or Laura. Or, “Hi.” If you don’t know my real name, then you’re not resourceful enough to have great content to be published here.
Other than that, we should get along swimmingly!
