Valentine's Day Pitch Ideas for Expert or Service Businesses


A great way to get visibility during Valentine's Day as a service-based business or if you are an expert is to share your business by exposing your expert status. Create tip sheets that you can send to editors and producers that are stories and segment ideas. Even though it's the job of an editor or producer to think up a segment idea, they do value when segment ideas are sent to them.

Create tip sheets that can easily be lifted into newspapers, websites and blogs.  Everyone loves a good tip sheet whether they enjoy them for information, a preview for what you can do for a possible segment, or filler content in a print or online outlet.  Every expert or company that provides a relevant service at this time of year should have a few tip sheets that they can offer to the media this season. This could easily turn into a hit online or a segment created around the tip sheets on television. 

Just figure out what you can share, make sure it is customized to the outlet and holiday, craft it and edit it, and you're ready for outreach!
