THE 30-SECOND PITCH
If you have a web site, we want you to link to us. To make it easy, we show you how below.
Follow these steps, and you'll be linking to us in a jiffy:
- Read The Rules.
- Place a link on your Web site to Variety.com. We prefer to be linked with the phrase "Variety.com - the latest entertainment industry news."
If this is a text link, you're already done. If you want to use a graphic, there are just two more steps:
- Tell us about the place you'd like to put the logo via this form.
- If we give you permission, you can choose from one of these graphics.
Our lawyer makes it seem a little more complicated.
