Pitch It Perfect – Is It Worth It?

You’ve heard about Pitch it Perfect by Julie Solomon and are considering the investment. But is it worth it? Here’s my experience.

A little over 3 years ago I pivoted my business and went from online boutique to full blogger. It was a risky move and I had no idea if it would work out well.

Spoiler alert. It did.

Along the way I took a TON of courses. Some were small $20 investment that had little to no impact, some were much larger investments that had little to a lot of impact.

The one course that I found to be the most helpful and the most worth my money and time is Pitch it Perfect created by Julie Solomon. (There’s a reason I only review one other course on my blog – most have been not worth my time OR money!)

I made my money back and more in less than 3 months. Since taking the course I now have a 6 figure business and so much of that I credit to Julie and her courses.

I love Julie so much and have learned so much from her teachings that I’m a member of her Shine community and have bought her Influencer Academy course.

*Be sure to read the whole review but also DON’T FORGET to sign up for July’s Pitch it Perfect Masterclass.

My biggest rule of thumb is to never pay for a course if you’e never heard the teacher teach. You need to make sure you like they’re teaching! And I promise, it’s not a whole class to sell you the course. You’ll actually leave with actionable tips and tricks.

So go sign up!

What is Pitch It Perfect?

I may make a small commission (at no cost to you) if you choose to purchase this program but I would never promote anything I didn’t truly love! Thank you for using my links!

Pitch it Perfect is a course that not only teaches you how to pitch yourself to brands but to negotiate well, communicate well and overall be an amazing business woman.

There are 5 different modules. You can do it at your own pace – one a week or all in one day! I devoured the content and finished it in a weekend.

These modules go from everything to WHY you should be pitching, how to prep for pitching the principles of pitching, best practices and what to do after pitching.

The Pitch It Perfect Course

The nice thing about this course is that once you’re in, you’re in for life! As we all know, this industry is always changing and Julie and her team know that. They recently (last year) updated the entire curriculum so you can have up to date information on how to make the best business decisions and pitch the right way.

I’ve taken many courses that had such outdated information in it which was so disappointing. Not Julie! Her course is up to date and completely on trend.

Examples and Templates

She also has TONS of examples and templates for you! I work best with seeing a clear example of how to do something rather than trying to come up with it all myself. In some spots she gives and example of what she or someone else wrote or said and in other spots she gives exact templates to help get you started.

These templates helped me SO much when I was getting going! Half the battle is getting going and she does an amazing job at helping you get started.

Exclusive Pitch It Perfect Facebook Group

One thing that I loved was the Facebook group! I don’t use it as much any more but when I was first starting on pitching I would frequently post in the group for ideas, questions or support.

There are so many brilliant women in the facebook group that are willing to help you out – it’s a HUGE perk of the program!

Julie also is there from time to time answering questions and helping out (not one other course have I gotten replies from the instructor – even when I’ve emails questions!). This says so much about the care and support that Julie gives.

Does Pitch It Perfect Work?

In my honest opinion, YES. One of the biggest things it did for me was know how to negotiate. I’ve been able to flip deals from just product to paid (and paid well), and turned one time deals into multiple months of paid collabs.

I’ve gotten plenty of “no” or lack of replies when I’ve sent out pitches so no, this isn’t a fool proof plan that’s going to work every time but knowing what to say and how to say it is a great way to start.

Everyone has different results but I made over $20,000 more in brand deals the year after I bought her course by implementing her strategies. That’s HUGE!

Will It Work For Me?

If you do the work! I’ve bought plenty of courses that I’ve never finished. Or finished but never implemented.

If you’re going to buy the course, immediately carve out time to go through it. And as you’re going through it, immediately implement it. I would go through a module, stop, do whatever it said to do and move on once it was done. It takes a while but trust me, if you learn AND implement, you will have results.

The cost of Pitch it Perfect is $699 if you pay in full or 3 payments of $267.
