If I want to sell a story to Take a Break magazine, what’s the difference between going direct or using Talk to the Press?
If you go directly to a magazine you don’t know you’re getting the best fee for your story. As media experts, we know what you should be getting paid depending on the type of story, who you are selling it to, how small or big your story appears in the magazine, and what the demand is for stories at that moment.
On top of this, we will try to place your story for you with a number of different publications. For instance, after it runs in Take a Break we could take it to a national paper, a TV daytime show and even other magazine (only certain magazines will print stories that have appeared exclusively in Take a Break).
For every slice of media you do we’ll secure you the best fee possible – so why sell your story directly once when you can potentially sell it four or five times? Because we know in which which order to sell your story we will make sure you achieve the maximum overall payment.
How to get the highest fee for your story in a magazine like Take a Break or other women’s magazines
If you’re not fussed about which magazine you appear in and just want the highest possible fee for your story, then we can pitch it to ALL of the women’s weeklies. Just like an auction, we get them to enter a bidding war for your story. We also send your story securely so that nobody can use it or print it without approval from us first.
This means that all of the women’s weeklies will have a chance to bid for you story – substantially pushing up your fee.
This process is a little more time-consuming than just pitching to one magazine, however it does mean we’ll be able to secure you a better deal.
Often, during this process, we’ll be able to place with two magazines. One will agree to run first for a higher fee and another will agree to follow for a smaller fee.
Do I have a story?
The women’s weeklies love great ‘real life’ stories – especially if there’s an unusual twist or angle to the piece.
There’s so many great stories out there it’s hard to list them all, the best way to find out if you’ve got a story suitable for a Take a Break or any other publication is to fill out the form on this page, or call us on 0207 549 5406.
One of our dedicated team will get back to you within 24 hours and let you know if it’s something we can help with or not.
Our service to you is free and completely confidential. Once we’ve spoken to you we’ll ask you to send over the relevant pictures/ evidence and then we’ll pitch it over for you.
Generally, we will secure you a deal within 24 to 48 hours – but we’ll keep you in the loop every step of the way.
