It’s often an excitement to get your name seen for the first time on a large publication. As one of our articles gets published on the web i.e. it goes live, we start anticipating all the good things that come along with it.
Getting one’s creativity published by a large media outlet, it is a relief that finally one’s hard work has paid off. Here are 5 benefits to getting featured in a large publication:
Opportunity of securing more readers, which in turn fetches more clients
A large publication has itself got many readers. When a lot of work is visible, more readers can learn about what needs to be done. While some become true followers, the others actually become clients. Instead of posting an article on a small niche, a large publication can bring down popularity to 100 times. There are 2 instances on this. Firstly, the topic on which we write must go in parallel accordance with the publication. Secondly, a larger publication does not always bring better results i.e. a piece of article may not be heavily promoted. Hence, one should aim to contribute to a site at least a few more times to get better results.
Getting instant credibility
In the world of the internet, the most difficult thing to acquire is trust. So, in order to build instant credibility, one must know who or what they are getting associated with. Contributing to large publications means that the work that has been submitted has been secured by authority sources. When people look up for one’s name or one’s company, they can only recognize the sites associated with publications with high viewership and more email subscribers. For instance, the articles listed on Forbes or Entrepreneur show up at every random search roving that the matter or the content has been considered much seriously. As an added advantage, one can mention on his site and profiles where they have been featured to provide credibility.
Establishing network chains with other entrepreneurs
When an article of a writer gets featured on a high demanding site, more organizations are likely to find and get connected with him. Companies that work with a smooth parity between their services and audiences, often reach out to set up partnerships. With this comes offers for paid opportunities such as writing, collaboration or consulting. As soon as one gets connected and contacted by various companies, the collaboration becomes smoother. For instance, nowadays, people often use Focuster as a focus management tool that aids freelancers and entrepreneurs to stay at the zenith of their work. Freelancers, entrepreneurs and content creators keep reaching out to other clients to widen their content network. Through this, they also exchange ideas on overcoming obstacles, boosting growth and working as a team. Although, these aren’t paid opportunities, sharing knowledge and linking support with others is rewarding.
Gaining valuable experiences from the publication process
When one contributes to a large publication, they often get an opportunity to work with professional editors who provide valuable feedback. There are certain experiences and skills that every publication owns no matter from whatever platform they execute. One must learn to understand what kind of articles and topics resonate with anticipating readers. One can also test out their upcoming ideas on a large scale and see the response from the audience. In this process, a lot of knowledge by publishing on a large publication is acquired especially in editing and writing. These can be further applied anywhere else.
