1. Discover the Magic of Proposals.
If you’ve written for magazines, you know what a query letter is. Blogging proposals are similar.
You send a company an email message, with “Proposal” somewhere in the subject line. Call the company first, to find out who handles marketing. Tell the person you speak to that you want to send a proposal. Companies know all about proposals, so you’ll get a name, and an email address.
In your proposal, outline what a blog could do for the business, then outline what you can do. Keep it short. I like to send mini-proposals, of around 200 words.
