The level of interest in your content, how well you followed our guidelines, and the appeal of your headlines will ultimately determine your readership. To maximize your reach, we recommend aiming for long-term traffic from search engines, as the best readers are those actively searching for answers that your article provides. Our SEO Guide can help you optimize your content for search engines.
Sharing your articles with your social media followers and asking friends and associates to share them on their news feeds can also help increase readership. Many of our contributors share their published articles in relevant Facebook groups, which has been successful in boosting their article views.

The example of an article that has performed well on Google for an extended period is a testament to the potential long-term benefits of publishing with us.
What’s the ROI? Can I expect Leads from publishing Expert Articles?
When it comes to publishing expert articles, the primary goal is to establish yourself as a thought leader and enhance your credibility and brand in the market. However, there are various ways in which your articles can yield a return on investment (ROI), such as generating leads through search engine-optimized articles and garnering more social media exposure and PR opportunities.
Since we do not remove articles from our website, an article can potentially generate leads for your business even years after it has been published. Some of our articles attract thousands of readers each month, with Google consistently driving traffic to them over a long period.
A prime example of an article that has performed exceptionally well on Google over an extended period is available. As demonstrated in the example, the article began generating most of its traffic after a few weeks and has continued attracting traffic through search engine optimization.
Clearly, this is an instance where an article can serve as an effective lead magnet. By including call-to-actions in the article, our Contributor has been able to direct hundreds of potential clients to her website every month, with its effectiveness growing stronger over time.
Will I get more website visitors?
The quantity of website visitors that a published article can attract is subject to various factors, such as how well your writing is optimized for search engines and how captivating your headlines, images, and call-to-action statements are. While some content tends to perform better than others, the most favorable outcomes are achieved when your article can provide solutions to your target audience’s most critical inquiries.
How long will my articles stay live on the website?
Your article will stay live on our website indefinitely! We do not delete or remove old articles, making a membership with us an excellent choice for your business if you’re looking for long-term results. A permanent article on Brainz can continue to attract readers to your website for years, even after your membership has ended.
Once your piece has been approved and published, it will feature at the top of our latest article feed on our homepage and the relevant topic page. Furthermore, we will share it across our social media profiles and send it to our email subscribers.
Subsequently, your content will remain on our magazine, acting as ‘evergreen’ content for your business. Readers can potentially discover your article through direct searches using our magazine’s internal search function or by searching on Google.
Why is it important to have good publicity for my business?
Have you ever considered that 85% of us run a Google search before deciding to engage with a business? At the consideration stage of the buying process, the information that potential customers find about your business on Google can significantly impact the outcome of a sale. Good publicity is crucial in determining how your business appears online and can play an instrumental role in how potential clients perceive you during a critical stage of the conversion process.
When a lead is researching your business, they are seeking evidence of your brand’s trustworthiness. What kind of results do you want potential clients to see when they search for your business? There are various ways to generate positive publicity, from speaking at engagements and winning awards to featuring in interviews. The beauty of positive publicity is that it can snowball, often resulting in even more opportunities for exposure and, ultimately, more clients.

If you are the writer and rightful owner of an article that you have submitted to be published on brainzmagazine.com, you are granting us, and anyone authorized by us, an unrestricted, worldwide license to use, copy, edit, modify, exploit, create derivative works from, distribute, and/or publicly perform or display such material, in whole or in part, in any manner or channel represented by Best Holistic Life Magazine, now known or hereafter developed, for any purpose.
This license enables us to use your article in any manner necessary to give you and your content more exposure without needing to seek your permission whenever we choose to share it.

What is the difference between submitting to the Website over the Published magazine?
The main difference between writing for the website and the magazine publication is the level of exposure and benefits. Writing for the website allows you to reach a broad audience of 1 million plus subscribers and share the platform with published writers. On the other hand, being published in the digital and print version of the magazine, which is only released once a month, offers more exclusive benefits, such as personal brand coaching, podcast interviews, and ad spots in the published version of the magazine. However, this opportunity is only available to VIPs who pay over $2,500 to write for the magazine site.
Why is the Executive Contributor Membership a one-year commitment?
The Executive Contributor Membership is a one-year commitment because members undergo a qualification process and SEO analysis and shorter memberships would not be effective for our editorial planning. Availability for new members is subject to spaces within our editorial content calendar and is only open for a limited window, depending on the specific industries and topics we need our articles to cover. If you’ve been offered the opportunity to apply, taking advantage of it promptly is essential.
At Best Holistic Life, we need to publish a variety of value-filled articles consistently to keep our audience engaged and coming back for more. To ensure a regular supply of high-quality content, we have an exclusive network of pre-approved business professionals and experts who regularly contribute to our magazine, covering various topics. Once their application to join our membership is approved, each contributor is reserved x12 articles within our content calendar within 12 months. Although it’s not mandatory for members to submit all 12 articles, on average, Executive Contributors typically publish 3-7 articles during their membership.
Our approach guarantees a full content calendar for our magazine at all times, without any editorial gaps between our editorial content and sponsored content. In return, we offer our approved contributors consistent, guaranteed, and search-engine-optimized publicity for their brand at a low fee of 69.99 USD per month for 12 months, in comparison to our standard price of 2500 USD for a one-off promotional article in our magazine. We also offer our members additional promotional benefits as a token of our gratitude for their contributions.
What is a call-to-action statement, and why should I have one at the end of my article?
Your call-to-action statement should be customized to fit your unique sales funnel and the specific steps you want your readers and potential leads to take. Generally, a call-to-action encourages readers to sign up for a lead magnet, such as a free e-book or a downloadable course and includes a clickable link.
It’s best to avoid using a call-to-action that focuses on something with a set sign-up deadline, such as “join my masterclass next Friday,” as this information will become outdated quickly. Instead, opt for a timeless quality call-to-action that encourages readers to engage with your brand over the long term. You can maximize conversions and build a strong relationship with your audience by crafting a strategic call to action.
What topics or businesses should I stay away from in my articles?
Based on the guidelines provided by Best Holistic Life Magazine, there are several topics and businesses that you should stay away from when writing articles. Political topics are not acceptable, so it would be best to avoid them in your articles. Similarly, any content that includes references to adult material, the use of weapons, gambling, or discrimination against others is also not acceptable.
Best Holistic Life Magazine does not accept membership applications from businesses that exploit others or have fake credentials. It is important to ensure that the businesses you write about are legitimate and positively impact society. You should avoid promoting or endorsing businesses that engage in unethical practices or have a negative impact on the community.
Overall, it is important to be mindful of the guidelines and values of the publication you are writing for. By avoiding certain topics and businesses, you can ensure that your articles are aligned with the publication’s values and increase your chances of getting published.
Can I promote affiliate products in my articles?
On our website, we understand that many of our contributors may be interested in promoting affiliate products in their articles. However, we have strict guidelines regarding the promotion of such products.
Promoting affiliate products for other brands or businesses in your articles is not permissible. Our main priority is to provide our readers with high-quality, valuable content that they can trust. Therefore, we cannot allow any promotional content that could be seen as biased or self-serving.
However, you are permitted to promote your own products or services in your articles as long as you still provide value to our readers. We believe that our contributors should have the opportunity to showcase their expertise and promote their businesses if they are relevant to the topic at hand. We ask that you save self-promotion for the end of your article as part of your call-to-action statement.
We also request that you refrain from promoting date-specific events, flash sales, or short-term promotions in your content. Your article will be published permanently on our website. A time-specific call-to-action could confuse or frustrate readers if they come across it after the sale or event has ended and is no longer relevant.
We hope that you understand our guidelines and are still interested in contributing to our website. We look forward to working with you to create valuable content for our readers.
How much editing can I expect?
When submitting an article to Best Holistic Life Magazine, you can expect the editors to proofread and restructure it to ensure that your work reads well and is in keeping with the Best Holistic Life style.
They will also check that it is SEO-friendly. However, if the article is not up to the standard expected, they will not rewrite it for you as they do not want to alter the context.
You are the author, not Best Holistic Life Magazine. If your article has too many phrasing errors, they may deny your article or end your membership and refund you if your articles are consistently poor quality.
Proofreading tools like Grammarly can help immensely. Also, do not promote time-specific events, flash sales, or short-term promotions in your content, as your article will be published permanently on their website.
Do I have to write 12 articles if I’m an Executive Contributor?
No, writing 12 articles as an Executive Contributor for Brainz Magazine is not mandatory. While you can submit up to 12 articles during your membership year, the focus is on quality over quantity. Typically, Executive Contributors publish 3-7 articles during their membership.
You are free to choose how many articles you would like to submit as long as they are well-written, structured, and spell-checked. Best Holistic Life Magazine encourages topics that generate long-term traffic through SEO and has guidelines on their article submission page to optimize articles for high Google search results.
What should I write about in my expert articles?
When it comes to writing expert articles, the key is to focus on providing value to your readers by sharing your knowledge to help them solve their problems. Your articles should be centered around topics that your potential leads are actively searching for and should be optimized with relevant keywords to help your content rank high on search engines.
One approach is to start by speaking with your team to identify common questions your customers regularly ask and the problems your business solves for your clients. From there, you can assess which topics are worth competing for on Google by researching what your competitors have written about and selecting topics with less competition.
Once you have a list of potential topics, you can create scroll-stopping, SEO-optimized headlines that directly address your audience’s problems and capture their attention. For example, if you’re an IT security company, you might write an article titled “Top 10 Tips to Protect Your Computer from Viruses, Hackers, and Spies” or “How to Secure Cloud Storage: 7 Tips to Keep Your Data Safe.”
Overall, the goal is to create expert articles that establish your credibility, provide value to your readers, and ultimately turn them into trusting and engaged leads. If you need more guidance or support, don’t hesitate to reach out to your editorial team for assistance.
Can I get help writing my articles?
Yes, you can get help writing your articles. Best Holistic Life offers a service where you can work with seasoned journalists who can help you crystallize your ideas into compelling and thought-provoking copy. While this service comes with an additional cost, it can be a valuable investment in ensuring that your articles are of high quality and resonate with your target audience.

They can provide you with more information about the process, pricing, and how the journalists can help you bring your ideas to life. Whether you’re looking to save time or want to ensure that your articles are of the highest quality, getting help from experienced writers can be an excellent option.
When will my article go live?
The timeline for when your article will go live depends on a few factors. If your article only requires minor editing, we can ensure that it is search engine optimized and publish it within 5-10 business days. However, if any errors or substantial editing are needed, our editorial teams can take 4-6 weeks to edit and publish the final piece.
To speed up the process and increase the chances of your article being published quickly, it is essential to ensure that your content is well-written and error-free. One way to do this is by running your article through a spelling and grammar tool like Grammarly, which can help catch any mistakes and ensure that your content is processed as quickly as possible.
At Best Holistic Life, we strive to preserve your unique voice and message in your articles, so we try to do an as little editing as possible.
