Our Forbes column is a great way to great way to tell your story to the world. To maintain our publishing privileges we have to deliver a high ratio of investment insights to promotional content. However, an article can contain links back to your profile page at mytrackrecord.com where your track record can be showcased in a more compelling format. The goal of the Forbes article is not to close prospects, but to generate awareness and interest in following your investment ideas and results. Here are a few templates for articles that have proven effective in generating leads.
The best way to work together on a draft is to use GoogleDocs. Paste your draft into a new GoogleDoc and share it with firstname.lastname@example.org with editing privileges. Please follow the Forbes Style Guidelines.
After an article is published, check Forbes.com to see if there are comments on your article. In deciding which articles to promote, Forbes gives a lot of weight to the number of comments an article gets. I have seen many cases where an article that gets a couple of comments in an hour gets prominently placed on the investing homepage. Don't initiate a comment on your own article. But if someone makes a comment, it is kosher to post a reply.
