Ever heard of HARO? It stands for Help a Reporter Out, and it’s basically reporters or journalists looking for interviews or information to help them create their articles, books, or news stories. It’s the perfect way for writers to get their name out there and to increase their credibility. The more you can get your name out there, the better it will be for your career.
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the best part is it’s free. With just a little effort on your part and absolutely no money, you can be quoted or featured in articles all over the internet and in print. Most places will even let you include a link to your website, your blog, or to a social media account.
Here are some of the places I’ve been featured, just from answering questions for HARO. Keep in mind these images don't represent the entire article. They show only the title and my quote.
