Why don't I have any pitches yet?

You've posted up your project brief on Twine, and now you're waiting for creatives to pitch in to be involved. Except it's not happening. For some reason nobody is pitching on your project. We'll talk through the reasons why this might be happening:

1. Your project brief is too vague:

Compare these two project briefs:

This brief is very vague. You might think that the buyer has asked for what they want, but in reality the description is too vague. It doesn't say what kind of guitar player the buyer needs (classical, rock etc). It doesn't mention what the project is - it could be anything from a live performance to a recording. You might think that creatives who are interested will get in touch to find out the details anyway. However, most guitar players will pass this opportunity by. It's too much of an effort to find out what the details are, when the project might not be suitable in the end. They can just pitch on other briefs which describe their projects more accurately.

If you can, include as much information as you can about your project brief. That way, creatives who have the right skills can know straight away whether they're right for the project, and will pitch to be involved. 

Look at this pitch in contrast:

It's got lots of detail and the buyer will find suitable creatives will pitch much more quickly.

2. Your profile is blank

If your profile is blank with no information, it could put creatives off pitching on your projects. This is because a blank profile makes your account look inactive and untrustworthy. Make sure you fill out your profile - add a profile picture, cover image and bio so that creatives know your account is legitimate. This article will tell you more about how to fill in your profile.

3. Your project is too niche

If you're looking for a role that's really niche, specialist or rare, you might find that pitches are very slow to come in. If your project is quite specialist, get in touch with us and we can help you find the right creative quicker.
