Things to Avoid
Are you more likely to having your pitch accepted? Here are a few points we look for that cause us look at each other and then hover our hovering over “delete” button. Avoid these things in your Draft and pitch!
- The expression “truly something for everyone.” Do not tell us that your location is suitable for all. We do not need to hear that. Absolutely not. Tell us why it’s the best for our readers specifically. (Our customers, FWIW, are millennials with no kids within the USA and travelling with a budget. They are attracted to responsibly-planned travel and cultural tourism, leisure and foodie travel.) If you find yourself typing “something for everyone,” immediately erase it and then write it again.
- The expression “you’re sure to.” It’s a complete baffling thing. It’s just a passive-voice mix of words that don’t really convey any thing. Do not mention “you’re sure to enjoy the food at this restaurant;” inform us about what you’d like to eat, then provide a delicious description. The more precise and concise the more effective!
- The expression “if you’re looking for” or “if you want.” We assume that the readers don’t know what they’re searching for or what they’re looking for. This is where you step in. Your job is to inform them of what they should do when visiting the location, instead of giving them options that are based on their own preferences. You are the authority and the most reliable source for information. Make sure you are firm in your suggestions!
- Luxury. Our readers do not have that sort of skrill. So we ask you to leave your recommendations for luxurious hotels and resorts for someone else.
- Activities which aren’t exclusive to your location. When you suggest the use of a museum, restaurant or tour, it should to be specific to the place you’re going to. Avoid recommending chains that are not local to your area or other chains, and refrain from proposing something generic like bowling alleys or zoo unless that bowling alley or zoo are distinctive and well-known in the area you’re visiting, like the historic duck-pin bowling alley in Indianapolis or the world-renowned San Diego Zoo.
- Activities that are more appropriate for residents and tourists. What you do as a resident aren’t necessarily things tourists visiting your city might want to experience. Your local bar or your local grocery store are great neighborhood attractions however, you should consider whether they’re really worth recommending to a first-time visitor.
