Pitch to Media: Press Idol

On February 1st all those questions about what goes on in the mind of those Editors and Journo’s you send all those press releases to will be revealed. The two hour event will give 9 small businesses the chance to present a pitch to a panel of people from the media including the Editor of Nine to Five Magazine, Editor of Dynamic Business Magazine, Journalist from Inner West Courier [Cumberland Newspapers] and our very own Editor of Shoe String Startup Mat Beeche.

The good thing about this event is that even if you are not pitching at the event, you will still learn so much. It is not very often you get to hear exactly what those who make the decisions at the magazines and newspapers are thinking, and the process they use to choose content for their publications.

The event is a fantastic opportunity to learn, get valuable feedback and get known by some of the players in the world of business media. Some members of the Shoe String Team will also be around on the night, so even if you are not pitching, a story on the site could very well be a possibility.
