Pitch to End

In the world of PR, pitching is sometimes our way of networking and relationship building outside of social media.  We tend to monitor social media posts by journalists to get a feel of what their tone or personality is in order to better craft a pitch.

Depending on the relationship the publicist has with the respected media professional as well as the tone of the message, there are appropriate ways to end an email.

If you’re pitching a press release regarding the loss of your company’s CEO, a publicist may not want to close their pitch email with “Cheers” or “Later, Vader.”  Fostering established relationships with the media is also important so you if an email is being sent to a current connection, ending the email a close such as “Until next time” may be more appropriate than a distant “Regards.”

Here are 35 other ways to close an email:

1. All the best
2. Anonymously
3. Be well, do good deeds, and keep in touch
4. Best wishes
5. Confusion to your enemies
