If you’ve been creating press releases and feel that you just haven’t maximized its potential, its time to take a look at this handy service from Pitch Engine. Its called Tiny Pitch and it lets you create good looking pitches simply by sending over your content via email and letting them do the rest for you. In a matter of minutes, you have a perfectly packaged piece of PR that’s ready to be sent out to the world.
Tiny Pitch: The Next Big Deal
To get started with Tiny Pitch, you’ll first need to make sure you have your content ready. Ensure that you have a fancy headline, text, images and video links all prepared. Now simply hit the Create Pitch button on the website, select your choice of email client and you will see a template of what goes where. The From email and To email fields are automatically populated. You’ll need to replace the subject with your PR headline, replace the body text with your PR content, add images (not more than 10) and hit the Send button. Before that ensure you don’t have your signature or unwanted content included.
In a matter of seconds, Tiny Pitch will work on your data, generate a custom page, and send it right back to you. You can then open up your pitch and share it with your social media contacts, link them to your site, or embed it on a web page. A message button at the bottom of the press release lets readers get back to you with any questions regarding your PR. You can create a Tiny Pitch from your desktop, or even on the go, say from a Live event, from your smartphone.
You can find plenty of PR examples on the site by searching using hashtags. Here is one such example of a Tiny Pitch PR.
The website also has a Tips and Tricks section that offers ideas for submitting your content. For journalists and bloggers who get a ton of PR material in their Inboxes making it virtually impossible to sift through the meaningful ones, Tiny Pitch offers a solution by giving pitchers hashtags to use.
Tiny Pitch is a free service that’s still in its infancy. It may not be feature-rich or offer more power in your hands, but it does offer a useful platform to deliver PRs for just about any influencer in the social space. Check out Tiny Pitch for yourself and let us know what you think.
