Before I took Tommo and Megsey’s Pitching Masterclass I had very little experience approaching companies and brands. The insider information in the class takes all the guess work out and is easy to learn as it gives step-by-step instructions from beginning to end. The most time saving components are the pitching templates, simply insert your information and details and press send, it was that easy!
I already had some experience pitching companies, but this course has taken my knowledge to the next level. So many strategies and actionable tips to help me fine tune my current pitches and increase my success rate. The BYO press trip section is going to be invaluable for organising brand partnerships for my own multi day USA road in the coming months.
“GUYS. This is good stuff. Within just 48 hours of digging into Pitching Masterclass, we were landing pitches like never before. And beyond that, we’ve got more confidence and direction, especially thanks to discovering all those little details for where we were kinda making it up as we went along. Now we’re able to represent our strengths better, and to bring more benefit to those we help. It’s awesome.”

Is this course for me?
Is this too basic or too advanced for me?
The course assumes zero experience of pitching or brand partnerships. It starts from the absolute basics including how to identify your brand so companies will take you seriously, and how to get over the fear of your first pitch.
The course progresses all the way to extensive long campaigns and building your own press trip. If you are not already getting regular exchange based (Exchanging blogger skills for tours, products etc) campaigns with brands, then this course is for you.
We will not be covering paid campaigns for the course in 2016. But we hope to add a “module 5” on that topic in 2017 – at which point the price will go up – but current members will get the additional content for free.
That said, the pitching process for paid campaigns is almost the same – but the asking for money part is the additional content not featured in this course yet.
How do the "fill in the blanks" pitching templates work?
We have created a selection of templates – all of which we have used ourselves successfully in the past – and broken them down into elements where you can just add your own details.
We’ve included detailed instructions for how to fill them in for maximum success no matter what level you are currently at.
This will save you hours and hours of trial and error. Current members have had instant results on their first few pitches just by using these templates.
Are you qualified to teach this?
In 2015 alone we successfully pitched and partnered with 60+ travel brands. We continue to partner with new companies every month and this course shares the in-depth strategies behind creating these working relationships.
How to get your foot in the door, secure the partnership and then deliver a great campaign that will get you the experience to get bigger and better partnerships in the future. See comments from current members in the testimonials section above for feedback on what we provide.
If you decide the course is not for you, we offer a 100%, 30 day refund.
No More Sitting On The Fence
