Finding news sites to write for

    So I recently started a business writing news articles and I have had some success. What I'm struggling with is finding the right kind of clients to pitch to. Basically I need to find small to medium sized news sites which are in need of news content on a daily basis.

    My successes rate from cold pitching is good (around 10%) but I struggle to find the right kind of sites to pitch to. I know they're out their because I find them occasionally using google news but there is no "search by size" feature.

    So basically my question is does anyone know a good way to find small niche news websites?

    You can find small to medium size news sites and usually most of them are also in need of a good or rather a unique writer. Find some prospects and prepare your sample content that will represent as your pitch to them. A story that is not only unique and interesting but never been produced anywhere.

    The OP doesn't specifically stated what kind of news website so i provided the most related information for his query. Simply in search engine, "target keyword" news website, then hit enter to show the related websites from the SERP.

    There must be a ton of online news media that you can easily find in a Google search? :) good luck
