01/

Look at the publication’s editorial calendar for topics you might address or content to submit. Remember, many editors also create newsletter and website content, so send material for those, too. Customize your submission for the publication’s audience.

02/

Find the “ad close date” on the editorial calendar and contact the editor two to three months BEFORE that date if you’d like your content to be considered for a magazine article.

03/

Send the editor an email, but don’t make him or her dig to find the gold nugget. Be specific, skip the flowery prose and get to the point. Attach a Word doc with article content, along with a hi-res image or short video.

04/

Once you send an email, resist the temptation to make a follow-up call to the editor as they’re working against many deadlines.

05/

Make it turnkey for the editor. Send a complete “company-neutral” article that’s written for the editor’s audience with images and videos.
