Bisnow Gets a Boost from Forbes, Huffington Post

Big news from CRE pioneer Bisnow this week – the “(almost) never boring” publication’s content is heading to and Huffington Post online. This partnership means up to 100 million people will be able to access Bisnow stories.

Announcing the deal, Bisnow editor-in-chief Mark F. Bonner said, “Expanding our reach is at the heart and mission of Bisnow. And in an effort to strengthen that vital muscle, we are joining the forces of two of international media’s most vital and well-read outlets: Forbes and The Huffington Post. That alliance takes shape today in the form of two syndication deals that will give our content the potential to reach upwards of 100 million readers around the world. Though Bisnow is far from unique in forging syndication partnerships, this represents a coming of age that gives our team a crucial opportunity to wade into a deeper pool.”

Over the next 90 days, Bisnow’s stories will begin to appear on the Forbes and Huffington Post websites. This is a great scenario for real estate PR pros, and gives our clients an opportunity to reach a wider audience.
