How To Become a Guest Contributor
We offer a number of opportunities for specialists to share the benefit of their experience through contributed guest content on topics related to this site.
Havfing a guest post gives you the kudos of being an acknowledged expert, plus getting a backlink to your site. We have large numbers of visitors who will see your article.
You must provide a minimum of three pieces for our blog over the course of 3-6 months.
You must disclose any agency / client / partner relationship. Our editors reserve the right to remove self-promotional content and links, as well as make significant edits to content and headlines.
You must agree to provide original content, with exclusive rights granted to us for a period of TWO years.
If accepted as a contributor, you will receive writer guidelines and instructions, as well as a formal writer agreement to execute before any content is published on our properties.
What will you write about?
We need to know what topics you are most knowledgeable and passionate about, so that we know you have plenty to say to fulfil our minimum article requirements.
Our audience appreciates highly actionable content which they will find practical and useful. These types of articles are what we are mainly looking for:
- A List (Top 5..., 3 reasons why..., 10 tips for...)
- Tactical advice and tips
- How-tos and step-by-step guides
- Case studies
Thought-leadership pieces and high-level, strategic articles are also important to our readers, so we ask all contributors to submit a mix of both tactical and strategic articles.
Please provide a short summary of article ideas you'd most like to cover, keeping in mind the topics you selected above. (up to 500 characters for each idea, at least 3 are required)
Submit Writing Samples
We don't expect everyone to be an expert writer, since we have editors to help clean up your typos, common grammar errors and formatting, and we provide personal feedback and tips to help you become a better writer.
However, we expect you to provide quality content and provide value to our readers by sharing your knowledge - so we'd like to see what you've written elsewhere first.
Please provide the URLs to two samples of your published writing:
Due to the volume of contributor applications, you may not receive an immediate response. All applications are kept on file and we may contact you in the future if we do not have an available slot for your contributions now.
We have a preference for UK writers, who will better understand our audience.
