What is The Magazine?
We are an online magazine designed to bring together people and businesses that work within the UK media industry. The magazine aims to promote a better understanding between professionals working within the various media sectors of newspapers, magazines, television, Public Relations, blogging and books. At the same time it aims to help students wanting to learn more about each sector, freelancers and to help those starting out in business to gain exposure.
What makes The Magazine special?
As well as being run by a publicist and journalist - giving you free advice you can trust - already on the site, there are thousands of posts on a huge range of subjects. Many posts already appear very high in the Google results, regularly appearing in Google News results - and whenever a post is made on this site, it is indexed immediately. Even we are often surprised how fast Google reads what we are writing about!
How do I submit an IN THE NEWS story?
With thousands of people visiting the site every week, many of whom are editors working within the industry, if your press release is chosen to appear in the magazine, this gives you the best chance that your news will be seen by the right people. Simply email your press release to us. Try to include relevant photos with your story along with contact details. Every press release is considered but due to the high volume received we are unable to print every one.
How do I get featured on Author Spot, Website Spot or write a guest article?
Whether you are still a student, looking for your first job or an established business seeking to raise your profile, we welcome your story. Simply send a synopsis of your story, plus a photo of yourself, to us at The Magazine. Note that preference is given to those guest articles that are informative and will help others. So, an article about your day as a trainee or how you started up your company or tips on how to write a book are more likely to make an article on the site as a guest piece than obvious business plugs. However, if you aren't a writer, don't despair. If you send us your story and we think there is potential, we can email a template of questions to help and knock your writing into shape to create a professional article for you.

How do I get listed in the Portfolio Directory?
In keeping with our ethos to promote businesses we offer free directory listings or a whole portfolio page. Your portfolio page can include a photo, your logo, plus a link to your website, your email, copy about your site, and more. It can be used to promote a book you've written with a direct link to Amazon or if you are a TV freelancer or writer looking to further your career, a way of promoting your skills. Added to that as every entry is personally approved by us, you can also add it to your email signature, giving your business a stamp of approval.
As well as being a searchable directory for anyone looking for a particular company or service, all Portfolio listings are regularly rotated to appear on the front page so they are seen by as many visitors to the site as possible. You can update your ad as often as you like and if it is no longer required, there are no catches and you can simply remove it. Your first month for your listing is free and thereafter, to cover our costs, there is a charge of £10 per month plus £2 VAT (total £12 per month.)
You do not need to have a media related business or service to be listed on the Portfolio Directory - The Magazine attracts people from all walks of life who are interested in a diverse range of subjects - and we therefore welcome a variety of listings.

How do I advertise on the site?
Placing an advert on The Magazine can be a valuable part of your advertising or PR campaign. We have a number of low-cost but highly effective options available to promote your business. These include banner ads on the front page of the magazine and side-bar adverts. We also offer targeted advertising - for example if you are advertising clothes for tall women, your advert can be placed alongside an article about a tall woman... Many of our articles already come up very high in organic Google search listings and this sort of target marketing can therefore be very effective.
In addition, we can also include your advert with our regular newsletter that goes out to thousands of people who have chosen to subscribe to it every week.
We are happy to work with you to discuss all your ad requirements.

Can Sell Your Story UK get my business/story into a national newspaper, magazine or on TV?
Yes, if you believe you have a story which is saleable to the press, then do let us know. As publicists and journalists we are always looking for great real life stories and if your story is sold then not only would you gain national press publicity but you would also be paid.
