When you write a good article you need expert opinions and data to back up your topic. Where do you find all of these knowledgeable people? Good question! Here is a quick list of places I go when I need information for my articles:
Profnet- I use this site the most. You type up a note about what type of person you need and Profnet sends it out to people that may be interested.
ExpertClick- You can find press releases, experts and news stories at this site.
TravMedia- Do you write travel pieces? Then this is the site you need to join.
NewsWise– NewsWise can send you the latest press releases and list of expert contacts to your email address. They specialize in health, science and life news.
Game Press– This is the go-to site for video game information. You can get contact information for gaming experts here, as well as news and press releases.
Association of Food Journalists- Foodie writers can find leads and information for food trend articles on this site.
Help A Reporter Out- This site is a lot like Profnet. The members are very closely knit, so you’ll get help from other reporters, as well.
Reporter Connection– I haven’t used this site, but it looks like it works much like Profnet.
