How To Draw More Journalists And Contributors To My News Site? Thegogetter 1/27/12 3:22 PM
Hey guys, though my site InformAfrica is still relatively new (just a year old) - I am looking for an effective method to draw more journalists and contributors into adding their Africa-related news contents to the site more often, so can someone give me a tip on how to go about this? Where would be a good place to find journalists, and how to approach them communication wise?

Additionally, I'd appreciate your feedback on the site InformAfrica.com, because am looking to improve the look, layout/design, ways to engage users, etc...any feedback you may have is well appreciated. Thanks!

Getting good writers is something everyone has had problems with in the past. The best way i have found is to advertise in College forums. go to your local colleges there or contact their resources department and have them guide you where to go.

Thanks Bobby, never thought of College forums or forums in general. After Googling related terms for journalism, I was able to find a few forums, and have just gotten one journalist...still in search for more though. Thanks for the tip. Any more tips are still welcome.
