How I Got My Advice Published in Forbes
Training + Access + Action + Relationship Building = Success + Visibility
I was given the opportunity to submit story ideas to a Forbes contributor.
I submitted 6.
I heard she liked 3 of them. Months went by. No article.
I needed to make this happen, so here's what I did:
I followed the contributor on Twitter.
I saw that she had recently gotten married.
I sent her an email and told her I was part of Impacting Millions.
I congratulated her on her wedding.
I asked her if she was still interested in my stories.
I included the full copy of two of them.
I thanked her for considering my ideas.
She responded a few hours later and gave me the good news. My advice on networking was published in Forbes!
Take advantage of opportunities for access to people who can bring you more success.
Improve your odds with more than one story idea.
Mention something personal.
Make it easy for them.
Be grateful no matter the outcome.
