New Holiday Gift Guides & Story Requests are IN: All I Want for Christmas (in July) is for You to Get Great Press


Magazine Holiday Gift Guides for Pitching the Press

Do you know what PR pros (and business owners who do their PR like pros) are up to in the summer?  They're pitching the long lead press in order to land in their highly read holiday issues. That's right, from holiday gift guides to holiday-themed stories, the monthly magazines are already hard at work planning and putting together their holiday issues.  They start these issues early because they are big undertakings, requiring them to sift through endless amounts of gift guide submissions to deciding what expert tips and feature stories they'll be including in these December issues.

Want to see YOUR business, your product, your service or your expert tips featured in one of these issues?  Then you need to start pitching them right now!  How do you get a head start doing this, and a peek into what stories they're working on in the first place? You check out the editorial calendar listings of the magazines you want to be in and you use them to strategize and customize your pitches.

Good news for you! Tin Shingle's team has been doing some stealth, small-biz-buzz-building research for the past six+ months and we have created a massive holiday story list for you.  Do you want to start searching the magazines RIGHT NOW? If you're a Tin Shingle member that is exactly what you can do because we've emailed them to you spreadsheet-style, ready for you to search via magazine or story topic. Members of Tin Shingle can access them directly in their Template Suite by clicking here!

Yes, these editorial calendar opportunities (and countless other ones) will be on the website for you as always for you to access at anytime as a member, but while we countdown to our fancy-pants new media contact database release you can get all of them (and there are a lot of them) in your hot little hands today!
