Holiday gift guides are a top beauty PR strategy and tool for all beauty brands to utilize. Editors, writers and bloggers love to write stories about the best gifts to give. Whether it is for Christmas or even Mother’s Day, all of the top media outlets will create gift guides for popular holidays. Janice McCafferty PR is known for our successful gift guide submissions. We create unique PR pitches to make our clients stand out. This is an extremely important part of being selected for the guides. How do we accomplish this? The pitches and product descriptions need to be customized to fit the exact holiday. Below, we share an example of how we pitched a few of our clients’ products for Valentine’s Day 2021.
Are you a makeup, hair or skincare brand looking for help with holiday gift guides or new ways to connect with beauty writers and bloggers? Please contact us with any additional questions you may have. We would love to help your brand.
