“…The first step to getting featured is having something unique to say.” – Mike Fallat

Hey there, aspiring entrepreneurs and content creators! If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve been dreaming of seeing your name in the headlines of top publications. Well, buckle up because I’m about to spill the beans on how to crack the code and make that dream a reality.

Getting featured in top publications isn’t just about luck or who you know (although having connections certainly helps). It’s about understanding the game and playing it strategically. So, grab your notepad and get ready to take some notes because I’m about to drop some knowledge bombs.

1. Craft Your Unique Angle:

The first step to getting featured is having something unique to say. Think about what sets you apart from the crowd and how your story or expertise can add value to the publication’s audience. Whether it’s a fresh perspective, groundbreaking research, or a unique personal experience, make sure your pitch stands out from the rest.

2. Do Your Homework:

Before reaching out to top publications, do your homework. Research the publication’s editorial guidelines, preferred topics, and target audience. Tailor your pitch to fit their specific requirements and demonstrate that you’ve done your homework. Editors appreciate it when you take the time to understand their publication and what resonates with their readers.

3. Build Relationships:

Networking is key in the world of publishing. Start building relationships with editors, journalists, and influencers in your niche. Engage with them on social media, attend industry events, and offer to collaborate on projects. Building genuine relationships can open doors and increase your chances of getting noticed by top publications.

4. Perfect Your Pitch:

Your pitch is your foot in the door, so make it count. Keep it concise, compelling, and tailored to the publication you’re pitching to. Highlight why your story is relevant, timely, and valuable to their audience. And don’t forget to include any relevant credentials or previous publications to lend credibility to your pitch.

5. Be Persistent:

Rejection is part of the game, but don’t let it deter you. Be persistent and don’t be afraid to follow up if you haven’t heard back. Sometimes all it takes is a well-timed follow-up to get your foot back in the door. Just make sure to respect editors’ time and boundaries.

6. Deliver Quality Content:

Once you’ve landed a feature, it’s time to deliver. Make sure your content is well-written, well-researched, and meets the publication’s editorial standards. Editors have high expectations, so don’t disappoint. And don’t forget to promote your feature once it’s live to maximize its reach and impact.

7. Rinse and Repeat:

Getting featured in top publications is a marathon, not a sprint. Keep honing your craft, refining your pitches, and building relationships. With time and persistence, you’ll crack the code and see your name in lights.


So there you have it, folks, the secrets to getting featured in top publications. It won’t happen overnight, but with the right strategy and perseverance, you can make your mark in the world of publishing. So go ahead, start crafting your pitches, building your network, and making waves in your industry. The world is waiting to hear your story.
