It’s the golden era where the digital revolution is at its peak, and now the internet has the power to change anyone’s life. You can become an overnight sensation, a name among the millions, and whatnot. All you need to do is to use it in the right way.
But here is the twist, with the rise of opportunity, the competition is also rising. That’s why it’s very important for you to build credibility and authority so you can stand out from the crowd.
To become the #1 authority in your niche nothing works better than getting featured on top news publications & magazines. It's the most effective tool for reaching out to millions of people and telling the world "your life story", “who you are”, "what you do" and a lot more. So the top question that arises is which publications should you try and get published on?
There are 5 different Tiers of publications and each has it's own usefulness.
Tier 1 publications includes top media companies which have millions of readers and a very high DA rating (Given by google to determine website worthiness) not only that they have the highest credit worthiness and just having articles on 1 or 2 such websites is enough to make you a credible source in your niche.
Some examples of tier 1 publications:- Forbes, New York Times, MSN, HuffPost, CNN, BBC, etc.
Tier 2 publications includes top media companies which has millions of readers and high DA ratings but they don’t have as high credit worthiness as tier 1 publications because they are not news based but niche based media outlets. It's a great resource to build credibility in a targeted niche and have thousands of interested readers to know about you and your company.
Some examples of Tier 2 publications:- V Magazine, Vice, Tech Tmes, Influencive, etc.
Tier 3 publications includes mid-range media companies with the reader base of over 100K with good DA ratings. If you want to improve your google ranking and credibility in the market but don't have a huge budget then you go with this tier publications. It will help you to increase the trust in your audience and will give a boost to your SEO.
Some examples of Tier 3 publications:- Yahoo, America Daily Post, New York Guardian, California Herald, etc.
Tier 4 publications includes high authority websites who have a great reader base and a high DA. But this publications only allow guest post so despite being big names they are not that useful when it comes to SEO or getting verified on social media.
Some examples of Tier 4 publications:- Harvard, Buzzfeed, Thrive Global, etc.
Tier 5 publications includeshigh authority websites with high DA but these websites only allow Press release to be published on their platforms. It’s best for building credibility but doesn’t help much with SEO and can't be used as a resource for social media verification or wikipedia page creation. It's very reasonably priced.
Some examples of Tier 5 publications:- Bloomberg, Business Insider,ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, Market Watch, etc.
