Work Log: Week 9 – Bhoffstetter
The report below lists the work that I have completed and work ongoing for SLU tailgate in the week of 10/21 to 10/28.
This week I have completed a draft of the pitch letter for Humphreys. This letter took me a long time to complete. This being my first pitch letter to an actual business, I did not really know where to start. In addition to writing the pitch letter, I continued looking for other businesses to pitch to. The basic criteria that I am using for the search is: the business must be local and they must have an interest in giving back to the community. As local business specialist it is also my job to help design the physical layout for the tailgate. To help with that I have been trying to get an enlarged map of the possible tailgate locations in order to map out the service areas that will be needed.
For the upcoming week, I plan on finding another business to write a pitch letter for. After I have identified that business I will draft another personalized pitch letter for it. This should go quicker now that I have a reference to guide me.
