Questions to be addressed include:

  •     How do each of these venerable titles differ in approach and audience--and how should one customize pitches to each?
  •     What angles and story pegs best entice editorial gatekeepers at top women's media?
  •     How do Web 2.0, blogs, the referral culture (think Yelp) and word-of-mom trends impact what (and how) traditional media covers women's issues and products--and how does PR reach women consumers directly using these same tools?
  •     Which words and phrases must be immediately banished from pitching repertoire?
  •     What is the best way to get idea, product, service or even location reviewed and plugged by these top media?
  •     How to get more bang for your buck at media events, fashion galas and gatherings that include women's lifestyle media?
