Pamela Morrison’s goal was simple – build an audience for her core message.
The author of the upcoming book Luxe For Less: How To Live A More Prosperous & Purposeful Life Now! (The New Money Guidebook), Pamela is a self-described trouble shooter who excels at crisis management.
She retired from investment banking four years ago but hasn’t sat idle. Hardly as she strove to write, and have published, articles anchored by her invaluable knowledge of problem solving, leadership, motivation, career progression and life planning. As well, she wanted to focus her writing on how she has embraced change to her advantage and share what she has learned as part of her journey.
“I did some research on the Internet of what a pitch should look like and how to get articles published. I then put together a list of publications I would like to target. I would advise other authors to contact publications they read, like and identify with,” says Pamela.
A regular reader of The Huffington Post, Pamela’s first email pitch was sent to Arianna Huffington with the goal of having her articles published on Thrive Global, a health and wellness-related platform founded and championed by Huffington.
Reaching out to Huffington has since paid huge dividends for Pamela. She was added to Thrive Global’s roster of writers when her first article was published. She has since submitted and had published more articles with her work earning thousands of views and reads. More notably, she has garnered new social media followers and has seen a marked increase in traffic to her website.
“I recommend taking time to think about your article titles and also the photos you include with your articles. They do matter. Make them stand out. I am a keen photographer, so I like to use my own photos but it’s worth using inspiring ones.”
