Want to get published on Health & Wellness sites, gain new followers, potential clients, build your list and boost credibility?
Here’s how I did it!
The benefits of having an article go live and gaining world-wide exposure are fabulous and far-reaching. I have grown my list, gotten new clients, had offers to write for other online publications, and it certainly helps establish yourself as an ‘expert’ in your field.
I’m honored to say I’ve been named one of MindBodyGreen’s top wellness experts the last few months. I’m right up there (that’s me in the far right lower corner!) with some of my idols: Dr. Frank Lipman, Dr. Lisa Rankin, Sheryl Paul, Dr. Sue Johnson, and Kris Carr.
I had my first of over 28 articles published on MindBodyGreen in January of 2013!
I was outside in Central Park working with a client on a freezing cold day when I had a simple and timely idea for an article. I could have written it up and slapped it on my own blog, but I was ready to “THINK BIGGER.” I got home later that day and poked around the MindBodyGreen site, one of my favorite health & wellness online publications.
How did these people get their articles published?
Why can’t I get my ideas published here, too?
I started working on my idea right then and there, did some research about the benefits of working out in cold weather and infused my own experiences. I re-read it a few times and with much anxiety hit “send.” Within ten minutes I heard back from an editor at MindBodyGreen, “This is great, perfect timing, we want to run this now!” I was beyond pumped, I WILL be one of those people who get published! “5 Benefits of Exercising Outdoors When You’re Freezing Your Ass Off” went live the very next day!
I may have hit a home-run with that first submission, but I wasn’t always so lucky. And so began my journey with online publications and in this guide I share with you ALL I have learned through trial and error over the last few years.
A little about me:
My name is Laura McDonald and I’m a health & wellness coach, fitness instructor and writer in New York City. I’m also a busy mom to three kids and know first hand how tough it is to juggle work, family and good health. As a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition I’ve meet so many incredible health coaches, made some amazing friends and one common thing I’m often asked is, “How did you get your articles on sites like MindBodyGreen?”
Since I enjoy thinking up fun ways to challenge my clients that got me thinking about writing this guide for you. In it I share my top tips. These are the steps that have worked for me and I know you’ll find lots of juicy info in “The Insider’s Guide.”
You CAN do this! This guide will help save you time, give you ideas and motivation, bring clarity to the process and of course we want to help you get published!

A few of the benefits of being published:
- The freebie opt-in I have on my website finally started growing and so did my list!
- I continue to gain many new Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram followers.
- I get approached by other online sites and have published on them.
- I have new health coaching clients and potential ones contacting me.
- I get a spike in the ebooks I’ve written and my Slim Down program sales.
- I reach people all over the world!
- I was recently asked to be a guest speaker for a health and wellness summit with a London firm which will be recorded and the exposure could hit the tens of thousands (plus, I get a copy of the recording to use however I want).
And being named one of MindBodyGreen’s top “Wellness Experts” for the last few months has been fabulous for boosting my credibility. Yes, people, respect!
