Erica Sadun and Steve Sande are back to talk about a subject that gets far too little consideration: how to “pitch” your product, hardware or software, to bloggers and beyond. Erica and Steve explain why they decided to write Pitch Perfect and how their experiences as professional bloggers almost forced them to do so. They share some examples of how to pitch, some common mistakes that will kill your pitch before it starts, and why they reached out to the creators of The Joy of Tech to illustrate the book.
