Let's Talk About: Timing

Good morning, all.
I’m currently on a flight to Florida, but had some inspiration over the weekend about a topic many of you ask me about often (via email usually, but it was also a topic during my recent Ask Me Anything session and it also comes up in every Pitch Perfecting Party strategy session) … so I figured there’s no TIME like the present to dive into it (see what I did there?).
When it comes to press trip invites, holiday gift guides, seasonal pitches, and pitches pegged to current events, timing matters. So does the timing of your follow-ups. Let’s dive into my best advice — based on the timing of my assignments at 10+ national outlets — for each category.
