Choose Questions to Answer with Link-Type
It is difficult to pinpoint which benefit of Featured’s premium plan is the best. All of them are very useful and tremendously helpful. Still, if I have to select just one, then link-type is my choice. This one is a no-brainer and a huge time saver, as knowing whether the link will be do-follow, unlinked, or nofollow, does make a huge difference in which queries I choose to answer first. Thus, while I deeply appreciate other features too, link-type is another filtering tool so I can quickly assess which questions are worth my time.

Increase Online Visibility
I am increasing my internet presence as I am being quoted more often compared to other similar platforms. Utilizing Featured and getting published in an article provides legitimacy to my business and the experience that I can share. The cost of the premium plan is a no-brainer based on the increased online visibility that I am getting.

Look at Publication Domain Ratings
The premium account shows the Domain Rating of publications and whether they add a Do-follow backlink or a no-follow backlink. Our SEO specialist has explained that publications that do not offer a do-follow backlink do not have any business benefit and so it is a waste of time for us to spend time pitching. It’s also great to see the Domain Rating as it allows us to spend more time articulating the pitch for higher domain ratings as it helps boost traffic, visibility and website ranking even more. Knowing which pitches to spend time on and which are better to avoid for a person who has a busy schedule helps save time, effort and reaps better results.

Respond Quickly with Streamlined Pitching
Compared to how you have to pitch authors on HARO, Featured is a dream. I love how streamlined the pitching process is. Rather than having to copy and paste details into a blank email, write some lengthy pitch that provides your background and credentials, and try to generally convince the author you know what you’re talking about, Featured is so much simpler. Featured already knows your background and details, so you can get straight to the good part: answering queries. Plus, you can quickly type your response into their text box and hit send — no more clunky emails or being sent to the spam folder. I can get through about three times as many questions on Featured as I can on HARO because of this more efficient process.

Respond to an Unlimited Number of Queries
The biggest and best benefit of Featured’s premium plan is that there is no limit to the outreach you can do for your business. With so many reporters posting at different times, choosing which 3 questions you’d like to answer can be challenging and frustrating but, with the premium plan, I don’t have to sacrifice one pitch for another.
