Become a Contributor
Contributors must be professionals working in the field that they are writing about, or in a closely related field. We think of our sites as the publications of record for a community of marketers, and our contributors share their knowledge to discuss important issues and help move the industry forward.
Our audience appreciates highly actionable content which can be immediately applied to their own online marketing strategies. We are mainly looking for:
Guest Contributors may contribute on a one-off basis if they have a unique perspective, can share proprietary research, or wish to comment on a particularly important or timely topic. Contributors can write more than one piece for us but is evaluated on a pitch-by-pitch basis.
Regular Contributors are assigned to an ongoing column to appear at a regular interval (monthly is typical, though we will consider other intervals). This type of contributor must commit to writing regularly and meet deadlines consistently to maintain their assigned spot on the editorial calendar. We prioritize these contributors when editing and seek to publish their pieces on the scheduled publication date.
Full disclosure of agency / client / partner relationships is required at all times, and our editors reserve the right to remove self-promotional content and links, as well as make significant edits to content and headlines.
We do not accept company or agency bylines. However, we will consider an individual author working for a vendor as long as that person is not in the business of offering a solution that solves the kind of problem outlined in the proposed piece as this falls under our definition of self-promotion.
All accepted contributors must agree to provide original content.
