You’ve created an awesome article, it gained a bunch of shares and a good position on Google.
You invested a week to create it and 2 weeks to promote it.
Now the only way to grow more is to invest 3 more weeks into another epic article.
Sarah Peterson used a different approach, invested one day, and got over 1,000 new subscribers in 60 hours. All while spending $0.
The approach is called republishing.
Here’s how you can apply it:
1. Find media that accepts republishing.
Here’s a simple hack on how to do this fast:
YOUR_TOPIC “this article was originally published”
2. Send an email similar to this:
Subject: [Something eye-catching and not generic]
Hi [Editor name],
[Personal connection point]
I recently wrote an article about [topic] which my audience has enjoyed. I think [publication name’s] audience would love the article as well, because [why?].
I’ve included the article in the body of this email below, and if you’d rather check the original article out here is the link:
If you enjoy the article and think it would be a good fit, I would love to have it republished on [publication name].
Let me know what you think.
3. When your article gets accepted, ask to place a canonical tag to your original article (it helps Google to understand where the original article is):
<link rel=”canonical” href=”YOUR_URL_HERE”>
