We guess that the amount of red hearts shared around gave you at least a clue that today we’re celebrating the romantic Valentine’s Day. This day works as a little reminder to cherish our loved ones, the relationships we are a part of and makes us all a little bit more joyful.
We got caught up a little bit in this festive mood and searched for the best advice to help temper one well known love & hate relationship, the one between bloggers and PR pros. We do think that writing the perfect pitch is as hard as writing the perfect love letter. You must show that you care enough, but without going overboard as you might get rejected.
Actually, no matter what you’ll write no pitch and no love letter will ever be perfect.The good thing is that when you try to win someone over there’s no need for perfection, you just need to be interesting enough. Check out what other tips we have to share with you for our 107th roundup!
