Promoting Your Career With TechCrunch UK
There is a lot of buzz going around at the moment in the UK about TechCrunch UK. It’s a new digital magazine launched by a group of software engineers based in New York. They say they have over 80 contributors from across the UK. But are they onto something big? Well, let’s take a look.
So what is it about? Well, it’s basically a tech and geek site, who have “chipped in” their expertise to give you the latest news and information on everything relating to the tech industry. What they do is run an email newsletter. I think it’s a brilliant idea. All journalists should be getting in touch with their readers, right?
You get a really interesting choice of editorial picks, too. And not just any tech related articles either – they cover pretty much everything you could ever hope to find in a magazine, but in an interesting way. They also put out “tech treats” every now and again which is an interesting feature. What they do is collect business executives from across the business from across world, and present them in an exhibition-style format, highlighting the areas where business executives can make the most of their careers. It’s great to see these sort of features, as it reminds us all how important the role of technology and entrepreneurs is.
It’s not only the business section that is interesting, though. The personal columnists are also worth a look. Each one has their own column and their own unique viewpoint on things. You might learn something from everyone, especially if you’re a big fan of the particular niche they’re writing about. And if you’ve got a particularly difficult time, you’ll always be able to look up their advice on the TechCrunch UK website.
One of the things I like best about Tech Crunch UK is that they are so eager to find out more about the entrepreneurs and business people they feature. After reading through the first few articles, I realized just how interested they were in learning more about me, and the things I was working on. It makes you realize how important it is to get your foot in the door when it comes to being featured on a tech website! It also makes you realize how incredibly rare and powerful that kind of exposure really is. There are many different ways that you can promote yourself to potential readers and customers, but including a resource box at the end of your articles is by far the easiest and cheapest way. All you have to do is send an email to the TechCrunch UK site with your bio and a link to your site!
If you’ve never worked as a business owner, it can be hard to understand just how much work it takes. But if you’re willing to take the time and learn, then it can be very rewarding. And don’t forget, you can always sell yourself to a bigger company down the line! It’s important to keep in mind, however, that even if a company doesn’t ultimately hire you, they might look on your resume favorably during the interview process!
