At some point in your professional life, you’ve probably wondered how to become a contributor for Forbes Magazine. Or maybe Inc, Fast Company, or even Entrepreneur.
It’s powerful exposure and authority positioning. Every time I write for Entrepreneur, I get 100+ new Twitter followers.
It also gives you other places to share your message. I can rank in Google for almost any 3-5 word term with my account at Huffington Post.
You also get free traffic and valuable backlinks from these very, very powerful authority sites that your competitors can’t get.
Unfortunately, contributing to highly respected publications isn’t always easy.
Each publication has their own requirements and preferences with regards to the content they promote. It can seem almost like a maze you have to navigate with no map.
