What’s the best part?  Our service is free to you and we are not tied to any particular publication.  Agencies and freelance writers are are paid directly by the publications for finding and writing stories.  The national press rely on our content to fill the pages of the papers and magazine each day.  Your fee will be paid directly from the publication, or via us (depending on which publication you decide to go with).


How to get the most money from your story

To get the most money from selling your story to the press, you need to approach the publications in a specific order and in the right way.  Our team are experts at securing you get the highest fee possible, ensuring that you get paid, and making sure that nobody steals your story or uses it without our permission.

Our team will ensure that everything is done in the correct order to maximize your profit.  You won’t have to worry about a thing.

What can you do to make sure you get the most money?  You MUST make sure that your story remains exclusive.  All publications only pay the maximum fee if your story is exclusive, so keep it that way.  If there is a sniff that others (or you) are touting your story around to multiple agencies or publications, it’s a big turn off.  Newspapers and magazines want to be the only one who has your story, which is why they pay more for it.

If you choose to use FamousFeatures, please don’t share your story with any other journalist, agency, newspaper, magazine, television company or media outlet.  Remember, you can sell to all of them, but it must be done in the correct order.
