How To Pitch People As A Project Lead
You wanna work with someone? Here's how to get your foot in the door.
I’m asked often how I built one of the biggest freelance teams in the tabletop industry for The Vineyard RPG. I’m as immensely proud of where we are today as I am bamboozled by that fact. I’ve poured over my pitch emails and messages to find the common themes to my successes in communication.
This advice is for anyone seeking to collaborate or work with anyone else, not just in the tabletop industry - it’s just where I happen to work.
Value up front
Be interested in people
Be interested in their work
Give clear next steps
You want it to be readable on a phone so that a freelancer who gets your email can respond with a “yes, let’s talk!” and you are scheduling a meeting to discuss details from there. Don’t over complicate things - freelancers are busy enough.
