Guys, it’s June and it’s time to start thinking about your business in terms of months ahead. For print magazines, they are already thinking about their end of year issues. As dramatic as you think that is, it’s true. Take a look at editorial calendars when you get a chance. Look at their closing dates, they are usually 3 to 5 months ahead of the game.
Do you know what that means? You should already have your holiday line-up of products ready, at least image-wise. What are you waiting for?! Now is the time to start pitching for holiday gift guides. Think about and research what publications are covering for November…also, for more regional and digital publications, they should be working on August and September issues still.
