How to Become a Contributor to Forbes, Mashable, TechCrunch & More

Download to read offline

During the past 3 years I've written 200+ articles in publications like Forbes, Entrepreneur, Mashable, TechCrunch, Fast Company, and Time. The benefits I've received from this include a book deal, paid speaking gigs, 1,000% revenue growth at my agency during the first 12 months I was writing, and getting to meet a lot of awesome people.

I got lucky. The opportunity to a contributor fell into my lap. But you can make it happen. This is how.

Update: Due to popular demand I've launched an online course on how to become a Forbes contributor at www.joshsteimle.com/courses/become-forbes-contributor/.
