From a blog creation standpoint, every outlet will have their own guidelines of what they’re looking for in terms of length, graphics, links and so on. Make it easy on who you’re pitching by actually READING the guidelines and FOLLOWING them.
For instance, certain blogs in the copywriting space have a huge list of qualifying criteria to meet before you even email them. And that’s because they’ve built a solid reputation with their content and have incredibly (but necessary) high standards. When you demonstrate that you’ve actually spent the time and due diligence reading and following their instructions, the chances of your pitch being accepted get much, much better.
