Why you use HARO
I use HARO to find queries that I’m either:
A. Professionally qualified to answer, or
B. Have deep interest or experience in.
It is the only place, I know of, where you can collectively find a pool of writers and reporters seeking input from the public to complete their articles, and this happens on a daily basis, which is pretty cool.
What you are trying to get from using HARO
The primary reason I use HARO is to try to earn backlinks to my website. My website is my small business, and ranking higher in search results is very important. One of the key ways to achieve this is to increase the quantity and quality of my backlinks, and HARO is a good way to try to do this.
How you have found using HARO
If you’re asking how did I hear about HARO, I heard about it on a blog that provided tips to fellow website owners on increasing brand awareness and exposure online. That blog advocated the use of HARO, so I decided to check it out. The rest is history.
If you’re asking how have I enjoyed using HARO, I’d say that I’ve enjoyed it immensely since I first signed up. It has already opened up doors for me and has led to some backlinks for my site. It’s a great and helpful tool. The only downside, I’d say, is the fact that you get three emails a day. Each email is chalk full of information, and sometimes due to my schedule, I don’t have time to look at each one every day. So because of the frequency of the requests and the busy-ness of my schedule, I’m sure I’ve missed out on some great opportunities to contribute to interesting articles!
