    WOAH! What a wealth of information…
    I think this article just ignited a fire in my belly to focus on getting some attention in magazines. Most definitely.

    I suppose I was thinking, “Why haven’t I received much media attention?” I’ve gotten some consideration in blogs and such, but not in magazines.
    Newsflash: it doesn’t just happen like that!

    Thank you!

  • Colleen says:

    Great suggestions, this was a very helpful page! One of the ways I started getting my cosmetics for oily skin noticed was by submitting articles, blogs, and press releases to a website called It sounds similar to the HARO site, where reporters can integrate your writing into their press pieces. I’ve found my press releases re-posted all over the place online, after submitting only one to the Articles Base Website.

  • Great ideas. One of the best ways to get into publications is to start local. Local magazines and “rags” are always looking to feature local businesses. Each time you are mentioned or featured, add it to your website or marketing materials (“As seen in…”). This will gain you credibility, not only with your local market, but with larger publications as well. There are also services out there like that group advertisers together to share space and costs in cooperatives, making it affordable to small businesses to be seen in larger (and local) publications. Good luck!

By calling before sending them an email, you stand outˆask what information they need in order to include you in their magazine.” Great article and I look forward to getting a write up. Thanks!
