Pitch to Your Heart’s Content at Jet

As the authority on breaking information in the black community, editors at Jet need to be in the know about, well, everything. For publicists with clients and products to place, that means a PR jackpot of more than 7 million readers.

“We’re not one of those publications that are like, ‘we only work with certain people.’ No, we’re open. We want to hear from you,” assured Jet‘s editor-in-chief Mitzi Miller. “We want to know what’s going on. It’s our job to have our finger on the pulse of everything that’s hot and happening. The only way we can accomplish this is making contact with people who are out there.”

But before you start mass-mailing pitches,  Miller advises publicists to customize the pitch to the right editor. An email blast without a specific feel for the magazine’s audience or style is guaranteed to get ignored.

Make Waves For Your Destination Clients

ISLANDS has maintained its reputation as an intelligent travel magazine for the last 30 years, and it is “always  evolving,” said editor Eddy Patricelli in our latest How To Pitch for PR article.

As a publication dedicated to uncovering the “last little pockets of independent cultures,” editors are on a constant search for unique destinations. ”Mainly resorts, spa treatments, unique tours and whatnot tend to perk our interests,” said Patricelli. “We don’t do a lot of travel lifestyle products in ISLANDS.”
