Cold Pitch Masterclass + OTO
Say hello to the Cold Pitch Masterclass
Get a proven step-by-step framework to send ethical cold pitches to your wishlist clients — without sounding sleazy, feeling annoying or coming off desperate — that will have prospects responding enthusiastically to get on your books.
Your business was supposed to give you $20K months and time off when you felt like it…
But now you’re working harder than you ever have before on projects that don’t excite you, for clients you don’t love, and for fees that you really wish were bigger.
And that’s when it’s going well.
Because as a business owner you are well aware that:
No clients = no business and no money. But still bills, whaddayaknow…
You need a reliable system to generate leads (aaaand that’s always on the to-do list)
Consistent action is what makes a difference…but it’s so hard to see what’s actually moving the needle
Getting clients is hard, but getting clients you LOVE is like Mission Impossible (only accessible to the elite of the elite at the top of their game)
Referrals are great! Except when they dry up, and you’re left staring at big, yawning gaps in your calendar
And let’s not forget that familiar, chest-tightening anxiety when you realize you’ve been so ‘distracted’ with client work that you forgot to make sure more clients were coming in. Because, you and I both know ‘trusting that something will turn up’ isn’t a business strategy.
And while cold pitching seems like it *could* be the key to a pipeline full of ideal clients…
The thought of actually doing it is exhausting. And makes you seize up just a little.
Because you could spend hours on research – but that doesn’t guarantee you’ll hear anything back
Personalized pitches might get you a better response rate – but that feels like an entire job and not the scalable or sustainable lead generation system you need
If you get through the onslaught of second-guessing (how do I figure out what my ideal client needs? Do I pitch one project? Multiple projects? What’s the right way to do this?..) – the thought of them actually responding, asking for more detail and THEN rejecting you has you curled in the fetal position
You’ve been the unwilling recipient of SO MANY horrible pitch emails and *errrgh* telemarketers – and there’s no way you’re going to be one of those skeezy, sleazy spammers
And worst of all, even though you want to come across as an expert collaborator – you’re sure they’ll see you as a sad, desperate freelancer that’s begging for work (cue Oliver Twist)
But there’s something you should know…
You don’t need to sell yourself.
You just need to solve a problem
You can take proactive control of your pipeline and your business.
You can cold pitch your ideal clients.
You can get an enthusiastic response from them.
And you can do it without sounding sleazy, feeling annoying or coming off desperate
Ethical cold pitches solve a problem and start a conversation. They take the pressure off you and provide way more value for your prospect.
Really! Here are some actual replies to ethical cold pitches I’ve sent:
Cold Pitch Masterclass + OTO
When you have a system to identify which problems your ideal client is experiencing and how best to offer a solution, suddenly your business starts to look a lot different…
You’re in control of your income and schedule
You don’t have to play the client ‘waiting game’ (*jeopardy theme song plays*)
You can finally kick feast or famine to the curb
You can work with ideal clients that are well outside of your network (see ya, kiddie table)
You can feel confident knowing you have a reliable lead generation process
You can plan ahead without feeling antsy or embarrassed because you’re not working
You have the freedom to earn what you want, get that new car, or take time off as you need it
…whether you’re a seasoned creative or brand-spankin’ newbie.
How could I possibly know this? Well, let me introduce myself…
Cold Pitch Masterclass + OTO Hey, I’m Bree
And on April 1st, 2020 I had ZERO clients. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
Worst April Fool’s joke ever, COVID.
But things weren’t really amazing even before then…
I spent 2019 struggling for $2k months and hating that feast or famine life. I didn’t love the clients I was working with or get super jazzed about the projects I was on. And damn, I needed money.
I was just trying so hard to earn my stripes, pay my dues and become worthy of those big name clients and big ticket projects.
Which meant my New Year’s Resolution for 2020 was to make $5k every month with clients I desperately wanted to work with on projects that I was actually excited about.
Ya know… the whole reason I went freelance to begin with.
Of course COVID had other plans for all of us. And my clients started dropping like flies. Within just a few weeks of the pandemic’s arrival in the US, I had lost all my clients.
I figured out how to get off the feast or famine hamster wheel — but only after I lost all my clients.
I had no savings and no fall back. It felt like I was starting from scratch. Again.
So, I used my COVID stimulus check to pay my rent and I tried something new…
In 30 days, I tripled my revenue. In the middle of a pandemic. After losing all my clients.
All that revenue came from ethical cold pitching.
I was a little worried it was a fluke, until I started…
Hitting consistent $10k months
Booking out 3-6 months in advance (then I finally had to build a waitlist)
Working with brands who had been on my client wishlist since day one
Feeling like I could get clients anytime I had a gap in my project calendar
And ethical cold pitching has been the driving force in this transformation.
I take pride in my 100% open rate and 100% response rate. Plus, 60% of my cold pitches turn into paid projects.
And since I’ve started sharing my proven framework with creative freelancers and service providers, they’re seeing 75% response rates and 50% conversion rates, too.
Now, it’s your turn.
Cold Pitch Masterclass is designed to give you everything you need to get started with ethical cold pitching.
Want a pipeline full of wishlist clients who can’t wait to work with you?

Who you can start pitching today — even if you don’t have a portfolio, tons of experience, or fancy results (spoiler: the list is bigger than you think!)
What you can pitch to start conversion conversations about profitable paid projects (because hint: leaving the onus on your recipient to figure it out is a fast track to the delete button)

But what’s a masterclass without a workbook…and a couple other incredibly useful bonuses, too?
A system needs to be easy to implement for it to be sustainable.
That’s why I’ve added:
The Cold Pitch Masterclass Workbook – $27
This downloadable, editable workbook will help you transform your knowledge into action. This lil’ one-stop-shop for your notes, thoughts and ethical cold pitch musings is designed to get you implementing faster and easier. Because knowledge is cool, but results are golden.
The Pitch Tracker + Research Organizer – $67
No one has time to waste on client acquisition, especially if it means you’re losing an opportunity to make money. The Pitch Tracker + Research Organizer will help you keep everything organized, streamline your prospecting and, most importantly, speed up the whole cold pitching process from start to send.
3 x Cold Pitch Teardowns *Ice Cold* – $497
See exactly how an ethical cold pitch looks in the wild. These teardowns of my own pitches will give you expert insights on how to apply all the golden knowledge nuggets you picked up in the masterclass and help you action your learning. Or you can just swipe them to craft your own pitches. You do you.
Starting to feel like it’s about damn time you took control of your pipeline and earning potential?

If you’ve ever looked at your calendar and thought “I wish I could just ramp up my business whenever I want and stop waiting for clients” this is for YOU

“I received two more responses to cold pitches! Bree – I loved your class. I am already reworking some of what I do! You’ve done such a great job with all of this. I love that your personality seems so NOT sales-y and yet you are amazing at it. Your entire approach is so well thought out and intentional. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with so many of us.”
This is your chance to take control of your business growth once and for all
But I’m willing to bet at least one of these sounds familiar…
I need this but I’m currently enrolled in 7,568 other courses. How can I possibly fit this in as well?
You must be a freelancer! We’re ALL enrolled in 7,568 courses (did I see you in the Copy Accelerator slack group…or was it DCA?). And, yeah, time gets tight with all that learning and so. many. communities.
I feel you. That’s why the Cold Pitch Masterclass is 3.5 hours long in total. Plus, each module is a Snickers fun-size of immediately actionable, business building know-how. *tiny size, big impact*
You can easily absorb all that delicious info in one sitting, or take strategic nibbles as your business needs it. But, if you’re like 70% of my other students, you’ll gobble it up and knock out your first killer pitch within a week.
How is this different from what I already know? Also, there’s Google…
Ah, Google..*stares wistfully into the middle distance*. Knower of all, keeper of gifs, and birthplace of every Frankenstein’s Monster of a proposal, about page and cold pitch. Jokes aside, there’s a metric ton of resources out there on cold pitching. Some of it’s better than others, but you could definitely work something out for yourself.
That’s exactly what I did. And after about a year of trial and error, I figured out how to make it work.
Which is why what I can offer you is quick access to a tried and tested process that’s been developed with feedback from SEVERAL of the world’s top copywriters.
