Help a Reporter Out Logo

Help a Reporter Out (HARO) is a service that connects journalists with everyday people for the purpose of publishing stories. Or, as they put it:

HARO provides journalists with a robust database of sources for upcoming stories and daily opportunities for sources to secure valuable media coverage.

For us (the robust database of sources), HARO is free and only requires an email to sign up. And amazingly, I have yet to be spammed. I receive 2 emails a day with media outlets – large and small – that are looking for a point-of-view, expert opinion or even just a comment on a story they’re writing.

For digital marketers and SEO folks, HARO is one of the best link building tools I know of. With most media outlets being digital, responding to a HARO query and getting accepted is likely to lead to a new link for your website.

How do I know it works? I responded to a HARO query from the Today Show and connected them to my boss at Delphic Digital. The topic? Bringing your pets to work. They added our voice to their story and our website received a link from Today.com in return. Not to mention the brand exposure we received by getting that placement.

The emails are broken into primary categories: biotech and healthcare, business and finance, education, energy and green tech, general, high tech, lifestyle and fitness, public policy and government, and travel. I recommend reviewing them all because you’ll never know what gem might be hidden in something that’s not technically your area of expertise.

Sign up for HARO here.

Not ready to get awesome links yet? It’s cool. You can still use HARO emails to create your own content. You’ll see content for some of the world’s biggest media outlets are their earliest stages – fuel you can use to create your own take on the next big thing.

Need help responding to your first query? Check out these 7 HARO tips.

Want to learn more about HARO? I highly recommend you read the Lease Ref’s Ultimate HARO Guide by Carrie Wood.

radically change the early diagnosis of serious illness, and

Hello, I am working on a feature story for the consumer Web site

MortgageLoan.com about the challenges consumers can face when

applying for a mortgage loan after they’ve just taken on a new

job, whether that new position is at a new company or in a new

field.

We all know that having worked at least two years in the same

company or field is the best position for mortgage applicants.

But how hard and fast is this job-history rule? Is it more

difficult to qualify for a mortgage loan with a spottier work

history? And what can borrowers do to ease the concerns of

lenders if they have recently switched jobs or careers?

I’m interested in receiving written responses to this query. I’m

looking for information from mortgage lenders and financial

Thanks again for your help.
