Freelance writing has a unique set of problems — keeping track of drafts, pitch emails, editor contacts, following-up, pitching new Editors. It’s tough to keep track of all the moving parts, especially when pitching multiple articles at once.
Luckily, Ripley has a solution! Partnering with Kristen Van Nest, a freelancer with over 7 years experience and bylines in Forbes, VentureBeat, and McSweeney’s to name a few, Ripley has developed a freelance writer article management workspace. This workspace not only includes a format to help you keep track of where each of your articles are in the pitch process, but also tips and templates to help you organize everything, manage editors and reachout, as well as track social performance of your published articles.
To use this template, simply log-in to Ripley and start populating the documents with your stories, pitches, Editor contacts, pitch lists, and you’re good to go!
