Getting Featured on the Cover of a Magazine: Getting Noticed and Interviewed [+ Application]

Do you want to be featured on the cover of a Magazine? Getting your name and brand out there is important for any business, but not always easy. In this blog post, we will discuss how to get noticed and interviewed by a Magazine!

Getting Noticed

The first thing you should do is start making connections with Magazine editors, writers and journalists. This means reaching out to them on social media, email or via their website’s contact form. If they have a good number of followers on Instagram for example – follow them so that now YOU are following THEM! It will show that you are interested in what they have to say and want to be part of the Magazine’s community. If you leave a comment on their posts and spark up conversation with them, there is a higher chance they will see your name more often and start noticing YOU!

Getting Featured

Once Magazine editors notice your company and brand, they will want to discuss it more in depth. This can happen through an email or phone call from the Magazine editor where there is a chance you could get featured on their Magazine! It’s important that when getting interviewed by a Magazine, your answers are clear and concise – but also interesting enough for them to write about in- depth. Magazine editors are looking for interesting facts about your company and brand that their readers will be interested in! If you get featured, publish the article to your site/social media so it reaches a wider audience.

Contacting Magazines Editors via Social Media:

  • Find the Magazine on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram – look at their website to see if they have a contact form or email address
  • Make sure your profile is public so when you start following them, they can follow back!
  • Engage with Magazine posts by leaving comments and liking their content. This will show that YOU are interested in what THEY have to say, which will increase your chance of being noticed.
  • Create a list on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook called Magazine Editors and add Magazine Accounts to this list so you can easily find them later when searching for contact information!

Contacting Magazine Editors via Email:

If the Magazine does not have social media accounts, look at their website or department page (if they are part of a Magazine Company with multiple publications) to find their email address.

  • Make sure you have an email template ready for when Magazine Editors contact you! This way, the emails will be organized and professional. Keep it short and concise – not too long or they won’t even bother reading it! Get straight to the point and mention your company/brand – letting them know why you want to get featured.
  • Magazine Editors are busy people that receive many emails every day, so make sure yours stands out! Make it interesting for THEM to read about YOU. If they like what they see in the email (ie: good writing), there is a high chance they will reply back to you and set up an interview.
  • Don’t forget to follow Magazine Editors on social media too! That way, they see your name more often and start noticing YOU as a possible person or brand they can feature in their Magazine!
