Skills are the lifeblood of being a professional. You must know them, master them, embody…
The newest feature on OnePitch allows you to send, and track, emails to journalists directly through the OnePitch platform. The best part, this connects directly with your inbox so you can complete all the preliminary steps on OnePitch and communicate with journalists through your email inbox as you normally would.
To get started, make sure you have a pitch ready to submit or have a media list created through your account. To learn how to create a media list, see this blog which covers the few steps it takes to create custom media lists.
Pitching Journalists on OnePitch
1.) On the Pitch Scores page, or Media Lists page, look for the Pitch icon and click to open the compose window.
2.) The compose window will automatically insert the journalist’s email, their first and last name, the pitch title, and the pitch information along with a signature at the bottom including your name and company. If you’re pitching from the media list page, the email subject line and body will be blank and you can enter this information or click Add Pitch to upload a previously submitted pitch.
3.) You can edit the email subject line and the body of the email. Please note the title of the pitch is also included in the body of the email. You can also format your email with basic options like bold, italics, and underline. You can also insert bullets or numbers as well as attach files to your email.
4.) Once your email is all set, click Send Message to pitch the journalist you selected. If you have added the journalist to a media list, we will automatically check the boxes when you pitch the journalist and when they respond.
5.) You will receive a copy of your email directly to your inbox. Please note we have a tracking email address for the initial pitch email as well as the journalist’s response. Once you receive the journalist’s response, your email and theirs will be visible and you can continue the conversation as you normally would.
6.) You can also view each email you send to journalists on the Pitch Sent page. We’ll tell you who you pitched along with the original email you send. You can add journalists to a Media List from this page, and we’ll also copy your notes for each journalist that you add to a media list.
