Pitch For A Paid Blogging Job Successfully

It’s quite a daunting when you see a blank ‘Your Pitch’ box, next to a paid blogging job or product review opportunity you really, really want! That’s why we’ve written this guide about how to pitch for a paid blogging job successfully. Containing real, helpful examples for your use on your next blogging pitch.

How Do I Pitch For A Paid Blogging Job?

How to pitch for a paid blogging job

This is a very common question, and part of the reason we created the Get Blogged: Blogger’s Guide. It’s quite daunting when you see a blank ‘Your Pitch’ box, next to a job you really, really want! However perfect you think you and your blog are for the assignment, always think of pitching to a brand as a job application.

What Are Your Blog’s Selling Points?

The first thing to set out when you want to start to pitch for a paid blogging job, is to list your key selling points. You don’t have to rethink your list every single time you pitch, and think of it as a research activity.

A blog’s selling points would be one, some or all the following:

  • A authoritative domain (DA)
  • An attractive looking blog
  • A steady stream of blog traffic
  • Engaged social followers
  • Returning visitors
  • Blog comments
  • Content shares
  • Past brand collaborations
  • An engaged email list

What Are Your Selling Points?

When you pitch for a paid blogging job, a Blogger’s key selling points would be slightly different to those above. Therefore, this is more of what you do as a Blogger, rather than your blog metrics.

A Blogger’s key selling points would be ALL of the following:

  • You write content that’s useful, engaging and of great quality
  • You go the extra mile when working with brands
  • Your content is laid out well, and user friendly
  • You share your content on all your social channels (facebook, twitter, pinterest)
  • You complete assignments in a timely fashion, and before any given deadline

Ok, Now I know Mine And My Blog’s Strengths… But What Exactly Should I Write In A Pitch?

When you pitch for a paid blogging job it’s felt because you write stuff you’re instantly meant to know how to sell yourself and your blog, right? Well, if you’re anything like me, I find it easy to open up about my life experiences, but I find it hard to sell myself to someone! It’s basically marketing yourself, which is not always easy.

Writing a pitch should be a good mixture of the facts about you and your blog, and some solid content ideas. That’s pretty much it.

Do you feel like you could really nail a piece about XYZ, and feel passionate about the blog assignment’s subject? Great! Then say that. Do you have a few killer ideas that you think would blow the brand away? Do you feel you could go the extra mile for the brand, and create a popular and sharable piece of content? That’s brilliant – write that!
