Get paid to get into Oprah Daily 🤑

Published 11 months ago • 2 min read

The public relations industry often falls victim to several myths and misconceptions that contribute to it being a best-kept secret.

These common false beliefs also hold you back from pitching to the media because you don’t think you’re ready or big enough, Reader.

I break down the leading five I see keeping people from growth on my podcast, so click here to listen to the new episode released this week.

💰 Get in Oprah Daily AND get paid?!

A couple of years ago, Oprah Magazine transitioned to Oprah Daily.

While the physical magazine comes out quarterly, and you can still grab her favorite things issue, the website is the main focus with articles uploaded daily.

You can pitch an idea to earn coverage AND get paid to write, voice, or shoot a video article.

For this, they will pay you up to $2,000!

The folks at Oprah Daily are always looking for articles and to feature experts and coaches on the topics of:

  • Personal development
  • Mindset
  • Self-care
  • Energy management
  • Self-love
  • Travel
  • Finances
  • Building a business
  • Podcasting
  • Wellness
  • High performance

The place to send submissions is

📣 Stand out from all the other pitches

Yes, that’s the generic email, but that is the one they prefer all the pitches to go to.

So, here is a way to stand out from all the others in that inbox.

Social media is great for a lot of things… and stalking is one of them 👀

I use the Twitter search bar as I would use Google to find people at the media outlet I’m pitching.

This is the best place and the best way to start building relationships with the people you’re pitching.

You can also ping them on Twitter to give them a heads-up about the story idea you just hit send on or mention their work.
