Pitch Like a Pro is first and foremost an accountability program.
There are a lot of wonderful courses, blog posts, YouTube videos, and podcasts that can teach you how to pitch your artwork. In 2022 I took Shannon McNab’s Pitch Your Portfolio course for just that reason. IT WAS AMAZING! I can’t recommend it enough. Shannon is an incredible teacher!
After I took her course I had the confidence to send out my first pitch emails. But, I found it hard to stay consistent with my pitching and following up.
In the summer of 2023, I hired my creative coach Liz. Sometimes having someone look at your goals and your business from the outside in is helpful and that’s what Liz did for me. Together we set a goal for the number of companies I would pitch and she checked in on me each week to see how it was going.
During the first three months I spent working with Liz I sent out over 100 pitch and follow-up emails. There’s nothing like someone holding you accountable to get you to follow through. Pitching is truly a numbers game, which means the more you pitch, the more likely you are to land a licensing deal. During those three months, I developed a simple and sustainable system for pitching my artwork. As a result, I landed my first two licensing deals! It was that experience that led me to create Pitch Like a Pro.
I wanted to keep this program sleek and simple. Instead of building a huge video course, I wanted to create something streamlined. I also wanted it to last long enough to give participants a chance to build confidence and momentum.
At this point, you might be wondering whether this program is for you.
Now that you know a bit more about the program you might have a few questions. Here are a few questions you might have after reading a bit more about the program.
Keep creating! Take your time, enjoy the process, and keep creating work you are proud of. Don’t feel the need to rush through the process, take your time and enjoy it. You will reach a point where you are ready to start pitching your work, until then enjoy the journey.
My primary goal is to help artists who know how to pitch their work. If you don’t know how to pitch your work I highly recommend taking Shannon’s Pitch Your Portfolio course. It’s the perfect first step. Once you’ve learned the pitching process I would love to be your pitching accountability partner.
