Aly's Newsletter: Hump Day Edition
Lots of new stories!
Lots of new opportunities today!
1. For AllRecipes.com, I'm rounding up back-to-school gift ideas (or, starting school, if we are talking freshmen), specifically for college students. Obviously, AllRecipes is a food/cooking publication, so I'm going to lean toward kitchen/food with a dorm situation in mind, but I am not limited to food gifts and can be anything that is good for a college student going to campus. Please limit your pitches to major online retailers (and if it's available at several retailers, it's a good idea to share the links to all of them so I can see where it's available).
2. For Today.com, I'm rounding up deals for National Cheeseburger Day, which is in about two weeks (but I'm writing the story THIS week.) - if you have any deals at restaurant chains, I'd love to hear from you. Please include what the deal is, and how to claim it in your response.
3. For Pawp.com, I'm rounding up cute and funny Halloween costumes available online for dogs and cats. If you rep any, please send me a link to the costume and a description (please don't just send a list of URLs, that just ends up in my spam.)
4. For CheapTickets, I'm looking for travel experts to discuss travel pitfalls and risks (as far as safety, security, etc) that new or young travelers need to watch out for.
Tip: If you are pitching me for any of these opportunities, great! But please start a new email thread/topic and respond to email@example.com so they are not lost in the replies to the newsletter thread. And please do NOT DM me on social media to pitch me. The only way a pitch can be on my radar is via email.
Here's what has gone live in the last day:
Merriam Webster's The Usage
Tip: If your client is featured in any of these stories, it's always super helpful if you share it on social media. If you tag me, I'll share your share! (I'm @alywalansky on Twitter, Instagram, and basically everywhere if we are not already friends!)
Have a great day <3
