    Carrie – Thank you for your series over the past three weeks. I have enjoyed all of them. Great info on moving the conversation from social media to e-mail. The one takeaway I hope everyone reading this series remembers is push past the fear and pitch, pitch, pitch. Pitch yourself via your blog, for freelance jigs or anywhere else. How you sell yourself and your brand, is the most important part of being successful in business. Thanks a ton. Now to go sign up for your newsletter. 🙂

      Thanks for reading the series, Sarah! I’m glad you found it helpful. It’s tough to put yourself out there and pitch, apply for gigs and even post your accomplishments on your blog, but these are the first steps to creating a successful client-based business. You just have to take that first step and keep moving forward! (No matter how slow it seems.) 🙂

    Thank you for this inspiring and info filled article! Maybe now I can push past my fear and finally approach brands I want to work with. You’ll be the first to know if your template worked for me!
    My question is , if my new website is not ready yet, should I just direct clients to my Contently portfolio? I also plan on updating my LinkedIn profile.

    What a great cold pitching template! Short and sweet, and very professional. Would you suggest attaching a PDF with information about your freelancing site/presence/portfolio? I feel obliged to attach SOMETHING when sending out cold pitches, and the idea of just sending out a CV seems clunky.

    • Carrie says:

      Great question! Yes, attaching a PDF or Word doc is a great way to showcase your portfolio of work. You could also just insert a few links to your freelance site or online portfolio. I’ve found that work great as well! Good luck.
