Write for us! We accept bylined “how to” articles and opinion pieces for our blog and daily newsletter. If you have an idea that will provide valuable and actionable advice to small businesses, freelancers, and non-profits, we want to hear from you.
When you write for Us:
What We’re Looking For
We are most interested in bylined articles of 500-8,000+ words of body text, written from an objective viewpoint and conveying valuable how-to content:
- Practical advice
- Actionable tips
- Useful know-how
We publish quick how-to tips on social media, content marketing, curation, SEO, productivity, the occasional fun piece and tools/services we like, written in a friendly, conversational tone.
For examples, check out the following three articles:
- The (Almost) Daily Rituals We Use to Boost Our Blog Traffic [Part 1]
- Six Consumer Psychology Principles that you Should ‘NOT’ Ignore to Gain New Customers
- Ultimate Pinterest Marketing Guide Using Smart Automation
What We Publish
Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that has been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
Please don’t send us press releases or sales pitches. It is ok to include names and links to tools (even your own).
Articles accepted for publication will be edited for clarity and brevity and to conform to the house style. We will likely change your title, too, so you might want to suggest some alternatives.
If you are interested in contributing how-to articles here are some guidelines:
- Articles should be original to the author and unpublished elsewhere.
- Articles should offer readers clear advice, takeaways, and practical how-to tips on a particular marketing topic or approach to marketing. Bullet points are good. Meandering text is not—but keep in mind that 600-word maximum.
- Include a brief bio of 25 words, including LinkedIn and Twitter contact info, if available, and a recent headshot (make sure your entire head is in the picture). Or a link to your WordPress avatar.
- Include relevant links in parentheses, next to the words to be linked (i.e., do not embed the links).
- We prefer submission as a Google document so our editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft.
- If you submit an article that mentions businesses or companies in which you have a vested interest, disclose as much to the audience.
- The author retains copyright, but dlvr.it may reprint your piece, with full attribution.
- We do not pay guest contributors.
- We do not publish press releases.
