Forbes Tech: Responsive Editors and Large Reach
My favorite tech outlet to pitch to is Forbes Tech. I’m a big fan of their publications because their editors are very friendly and responsive. The other big benefit is they have a large reach, so connecting with our audience across multiple platforms is easier when we get posts published on Forbes Tech.
Hacker Noon: Platform for Unfiltered Voices
Hacker Noon is a standout tech outlet for pitching if your target audience is developers, hackers, and technology enthusiasts.
Unlike traditional tech media, Hacker Noon gives a platform to unfiltered voices and unique perspectives. Collaborating with them, we’ve been able to engage with a community that values hands-on experiences and actionable insights.
The open-contribution model of Hacker Noon makes it an accessible and dynamic platform, bridging the gap between industry experts and hobbyists. This democratic approach ensures that ideas are judged on their merit, fostering a culture of authenticity and innovation.
TechCrunch: Diversified Tech Coverage and Resources
TechCrunch is my favorite tech outlet to pitch to. It’s a great place to catch up on news about startup acquisitions, investment in startups, and new tech products. TechCrunch has a much-diversified tech blog that covers hot and trendy technology-related topics. On TechCrunch, you can find authenticated content on everything from startups and venture capital to AI, security, crypto, or apps.
In addition, TechCrunch’s podcasts, newsletters, and events are exceptional and provide industry insights and future trends related to IT and innovation.
The Verge: Comprehensive Coverage and Engaged Audience
The Verge is a top pick for tech pitching. Their comprehensive coverage of the tech scene and stylistically diverse content stand out, providing a vibrant canvas for tech stories.
This allows for crafting pitches that align with their unique storytelling approach, broadening outreach. The audience’s engagement level, their curiosity for innovative ideas, and the platform’s reputation make it even more appealing.
DigitalCXO: Industry Insights and Professional Boost
Very positive experiences have been had working with DigitalCXO. Insights are gathered from top professionals in the industry, providing valuable, up-to-date information on digital transformation.
The DigitalCXO team welcomes quality content and is always looking for contributions. It can be a one-time byline or regular cooperation. Their expectations, guidelines, and feedback are presented clearly. Collaboration runs smoothly and in a friendly atmosphere. It’s worth noting that the page DR is 63. Working with them is enjoyable and likely to boost your professional image.
GeekWire: Unique Tech Coverage and Inclusion Opportunity
Pitching to GeekWire is always a preference. The coverage of unique tech companies and different stories that are a bit unusual by GeekWire is appealing. This provides a better chance of being included or chosen for an article on their website!
Given the unique niche, many publications might not consider the pitch because of the content matter. However, GeekWire is a great publication that is always looking for things to cover and ways to stand out. This is what attracts to pitch the story to them, and also to read it regularly.
Inc.com: Straightforward Process and Business Owner Focus
My favorite outlet to pitch is Inc.com. They are always looking for new business owners to profile. The process is fairly simple and straightforward. You simply fill out a form and wait for a response. The only downfall is that it takes some time for them to respond, but if you are patient, it is worth it.
