Securing Op-Eds and Feature Articles

Opinion pieces (op-eds) and feature articles are powerful tools for influencing public opinion, showcasing expertise, and conveying your brand’s story in a more in-depth manner. These formats offer the opportunity to delve deeper into issues, share insights, and connect with audiences on a personal level. This section provides tips for successfully pitching and getting these pieces published, while highlighting how Impact PR’s expertise, editorial connections, and content development support can enhance your chances of publication.

Tips for Getting Op-Eds and Features Published

Identify the Right Publication

Research and target publications that align with your message and reach your desired audience. Consider the publication’s tone, audience demographics, and content focus to ensure your piece will resonate.

Understand Submission Guidelines

Each publication has specific guidelines for op-ed and feature article submissions, including word count, formatting, and submission processes. Adhering to these guidelines increases the likelihood of your piece being considered.

Craft a Compelling Pitch

Your pitch should succinctly summarise the key points of your piece, its relevance to the publication’s audience, and why it’s timely or important. A strong pitch will grab an editor’s attention and make them want to read more.

Offer Unique Insights

Publications are looking for fresh perspectives and insights that challenge the status quo or shed light on underreported issues. Your piece should offer something new to the conversation, backed by solid evidence and personal expertise.

Write with Clarity and Conviction

Op-eds and feature articles should be well-written, engaging, and accessible to a broad audience. Clear, persuasive writing that conveys your passion and knowledge on the subject will make your piece stand out.
