I've been running this blog for five and a half years.
As my audience started to grow, I began receiving emails from people either sharing content that I might like and want to use or pitches for guest posts.
I was so excited back then! They liked my blog and wanted to be part of it! They wanted to contribute for my audience!
With time and with the growth in traffic and subscribers, the number of pitches increased, especially after my talk at INBOUND16.
Which I'm happy about for sure, however, my inbox now gets flooded with bad emails. Really bad emails.
Pitches that are spammy, mass emails that were clearly not just for me, untargeted or irrelevant suggestions.
Because I worked in PR and specialised in blogger relations, I'm amazed at the terrible pitches I'm getting so I want to show you some examples of what not to do and give you some tips on what to do instead.
