Case Study Link is always my first port of call when I’m looking for a great case study – particularly on edition

The newly designed Case Study Link website is set to revolutionise communication between commissioning editors and reporters on staff looking for stories, and help freelance journalists and press agencies earn more money.

Every single day, commissioning editors and reporters on national newspapers and magazines are looking for stories, leads and case studies to fit their publications. In order to find the right story, these commissioning editors start ringing freelance journalists and press agencies to ask if anyone can help.

Now, the newly designed Case Study Link website is beginning to revolutionise the process. Here's how it works:

1. Every single day, commissioning editors from a range of national newspapers, women’s magazines and TV programmes fill out the "case study request" form

2. The request is then emailed to more than 400 freelance journalists and press agencies who have signed up to receive the alerts

3. If these individuals have a story or lead that matches the request, they respond directly to the commissioning editors. They are then able to negotiate at the very least a tip fee for their story. In some cases, Case Study Link members get entire articles commissioned and are paid a full feature fee

4. And of course, by getting these alerts of what the editors are looking for, members are constantly staying in the loop and can pitch accordingly

As commissioning editor Anna Wharton from the Daily Mail says: “Case Study Link is always my first port of call when I’m looking for a great case study – particularly on edition. I know that my request will go out within minutes to some of the best agencies and freelancers across the country. On a busy daily newspaper, it is literally a godsend.”

And here’s what Case Study Link member freelance journalist Laura Kemp says: "As a freelancer, I've had a number of commissions from Case Study Link and a couple of TV appearances, so I can't recommend it enough. It's a brilliant way of knowing who to pitch to as well as knowing the sort of thing papers and mags are after.”

Case Study Link was founded by Natasha Courtenay-Smith, the director of press agency Talk to the Press. She says: “Joining Case Study Link should be looked at as an investment in your freelance journalism career. You get to stay in the loop of what's trending with editors. Plus, you get to sell unused and old leads/stories for hundreds and even thousands of pounds. One tip fee could easily pay your entire membership for one year.”

Being a member of Case Study Link is just £10+vat per month, but you can join absolutely free and test-drive the FULL benefits of the service for 14 days.
