A pitch request is a way to request specific content ideas from writers surrounding a topic. Tell the writer (or writers!) roughly what topic you want to cover, then let them come back to you with a concept... or two. Pitch requests can be created as-needed or, if you’re mapping out your content calendar for the quarter, scheduled well in advance. Give writers specific requirements - or don’t. It’s completely up to you.
How to Send Out a Pitch Request:
- From the left navigation, click on “Create”, then click on “Pitch Requests”.
- Enter the appropriate information. Note: You can request pitches from individual writers or a whole team or group of writers.
- Fill out the “Content Details and Requirements” to give your writers even more information. Note: the “Campaign” drop-down allows you to group and organize assignments. This way, you can attach general guidelines or details that apply to this pitch.
- Once you have filled out all of the necessary fields, click “Create Request” at the bottom of the screen.
Congrats, you have successfully created a Pitch Request! A notification will be sent to the writers that you have selected, letting them know that you have sent them a pitch request.
From this point, you can either “Update Request” or navigate to “View Pitches” at the top right side of the screen to manage your pitch requests.
