How to pitch to us?
We love guest posts, but we do get a high volume of requests on a daily basis. As such, we prefer topic pitches over completed submissions so we can better track and more quickly respond to them. That being said, here are some best practices that will help us to respond to you faster and, if your topic is a go, get it published sooner.
- Familiarize with our news website. Read a few posts in full, and then do some skimming and exploring to get a feel for our tone and our basic format.
- Come with ideas. We love it when you come to us with topic ideas or ideally, titles.
- Check to see if we’ve published your topic already. If we’ve already published a similar post, consider whether you could write something more up-to-date, or approach it with a fresh angle or different perspective.The best way to see if we’ve covered your topic is to do a site search on Google.
- Tell us about yourself. If you have a specific experience or expertise that makes you the person to write this post, tell us! Also, if you have existing writing samples or publications, please share a few! But not to worry if you don’t.
- Include [GUEST PITCH] in your subject line. It seriously helps!
What to expect
Response time to your pitch
Once you’ve emailed your pitch, response time will vary depending on the current content calendar, but we do our best to respond in 1-2 days. If you haven’t received a response after a weeks, please do follow up!
Once we accept your pitch
Once we’ve reviewed your pitch, we’ll let you know whether we’ll consider a draft. If the draft meets our quality standards, you can expect the following:
- Edits. Because the content we publish varies so significantly, our process for editing guest posts isn’t strictly defined. We do edit the content to ensure it matches as per our style guide. If we need anything on your end— a better quality image, a change to a section, or further elaboration on something, we’ll let you know. Depending on the level of edits needed, your post could get published within anywhere from one day to one week. We will be in communication about that date so you can know when it’ll get published.
- Exposure. Our news website has been publishing industry-leading content for long time and sees over a million unique viewers each month.
- Social promotion. We promote our content on social regularly. If you’re guest posting for us, we’ll ask for your social information to tag you in our promotion so that you can share with your network, too.
