You are not alone. One of the most common challenges of content creation is coming up with fresh topics day after day, week after week.
Prose makes it easy. Let us come up with topic ideas for you—for free.
Topic pitching is completely optional and available for blog posts, bylined articles, and white papers.
Here's how it works.
1. REQUEST TOPICS
When ordering new content, you’ll be offered two options for “Topics”:
1) Specify the topic(s) yourself
2) Let Prose suggest topics to you
If you choose the latter option (“No; I want Prose to pitch topics”), just give us a general idea of the kind of topics you're looking for, and we’ll do the rest.
2. RECEIVE AND REVIEW TOPICS
Within two (2) business days, you’ll be notified via email that your topics are ready. At this point, a green alert will also show up at the top of your dashboard:
The alert will contain a button, Pick a Topic. Click on it to go to the Topics page, where you'll see three (3) or more topic suggestions to choose from:
Each topic will include a potential title and a brief description. Review these options and decide which topic you like best.
If you like more than one, don’t worry. You can choose one for the current project, and save the other topics for later.
3. SELECT YOUR FAVORITE TOPIC
Note: To keep the process moving forward, be sure to select your preferred topic within three (3) business days. (You’ll be reminded of this deadline in an email notification and on your dashboard.)
Pick your favorite topic and click the Approve button to approve that topic for the current content project.
Then click OK to confirm.
Note: If you take no action at all on a given topic, it will be moved to the “Topics to Review” section. Think of this as a “waiting room” for topics that have been neither accepted nor rejected.
What do the other buttons do?
Edit: You may like the topic but want to make a few small changes. Click this blue button to edit the topic’s title and/or description. (Be sure to do this before you click Approve.)
Add to Queue: Like more than one of the topics pitched? Choose your favorite and click Approve. Then select any others you like and click Add to Queue. These ideas will move to the “Queue of Approved Topics (To Be Assigned)” section of the page for future project selection.
Reject: Not crazy about one of the topics we pitched? Just click this button to send the topic to the “Archived Topics” section.
4. SIT BACK AND RELAX WHILE WE WRITE YOUR CONTENT
Once you’ve chosen a topic for the current project, Prose will create the content and notify you when the draft is ready — just as we would with any other assignment.
Note: If you request topic pitches from Prose, the turnaround window for the project does not begin until you have chosen a topic. For example, if you placed an order requesting topic pitches on Monday, but did not approve a topic until Thursday, the turnaround period (e.g., five business days) would begin on Friday (at 9 am ET).
