Maxim Features The Perfect Toast in Manly How-To Guide

Share Article

When the popular men's magazine Maxim began concocting their March "Dominate Everything" section, they decided The Perfect Toast (TPT) was the perfect site to interview about the masculine art of making wedding toasts. The result? A full spread article featuring a no-holds-barred four-step guide to making a knockout wedding toast, neatly nestled between the art of arm wrestling and a primer on how to dominate at the office.

When the popular men's magazine Maxim began concocting their March "Dominate Everything" section, they decided The Perfect Toast (TPT) was the perfect site to interview about the masculine art of making wedding toasts. David Pitlik, TPT founder and senior writer of this customized wedding toast service, has his theories as to why.

"ThePerfectToast.com is one of the original custom wedding toast writing services on the Web and is by far the most professional," Pitlik said. "Also we've been profiled in the Wall Street Journal and on CNN and CBS Marketwatch, so we have some real credibility in the marketplace. I'm guessing that Maxim looked at that and realized we were the authority when it comes to the wedding toast writing business."

Their interest piqued, the magazine then contacted Shopping Stand Inc, TPT's parent site, to schedule an interview. The result? A full spread article featuring a no-holds-barred four-step guide to making a knockout wedding toast, neatly nestled between the art of arm wrestling and a primer on how to dominate at the office.

Pitlik also offered his opinion on why wedding toasting made the list among these other manly pastimes. "I think they were looking for those really key guy things that you have to do in life. The speech by the best man is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing you have to do, so it was kind of a natural fit for the article."

And of course the idea of not just any wedding toast, but the perfect toast, was an ideal fit for a how-to guide titled "Dominate Everything." "I think the attitude of 'dominate everything' is not a bad one," Pitlik said. "People should want to give a great toast, the best toast, and that's the reason they come to our site. They don't want to just get up there and stumble their way through. They want to be special. This article is about being awesome at everything, and I think we fit perfectly in that way."

Furthermore, Pitlik describes the perfect wedding toast as, "Not getting drunk and just saying something off the cuff, but preparing a toast that's worthy of the occasion."

As for what doesn't constitute a perfect toast, Pitlik says the top two most common mistakes best men make in weddings is off-color humor and forgetting to mention the bride. "Consider the audience, make things equal and everyone will appreciate that," he recommends.

Though they've been featured in many venerable publications in the past, Pitlik is particularly excited about the young, modern audience a magazine like Maxim could bring to the TPT site. "I'm pretty sure we'll get business from this for years," Pitlik said. "It reaches a very important core audience for us. I think we will see an increase in traffic and orders. I have absolutely no doubt about it."

The Perfect Toast is the original wedding toast writing service, specializing in custom wedding toasts and personalized instant wedding toasts for the Best Man, Maid of Honor or any wedding party member.
