Tips On How To Tell Us Your Story
1. Remain on-topic with inspiring, original content.
Please ensure that your ideas and writing are original, and speak to solutions using an inspiring tone or inspirational examples throughout. Feel free to providing research, and running a spell check also goes a long way! If you are unsure, please Google your idea, or ask for assistance before writing.
2. Recommend a product.
Our readers appreciate articles that give straightforward, honest, and reliable advice. This includes recommending quality products – show our readers why and they can solve a problem in the real world!
3. Show your personality.
We sometimes tackle difficult and (to many) embarrassing topics; so by all means add appropriate humor, personality and edginess to your articles. Let your personality shine. This encourages action and inspires confidence across the board. Readers will also relate to you as the expert, learning to trust and value your opinion.
4. Tackle taboo topics.
Go Big! The more thought-provoking that your article is, the better!
5. Give a strong call to action.
Our readers want you to tell it to them straight. Set out what you would like a reader to do after reading your article (e.g. Leave a comment below, tell us what you think, give this product a try).
6. Word Limits.
Products, Book And Services Review: Word Limit: 300-1500 words.
Personal Stories: Word limit is between 900-2000 words.
Feature Article: Word limit 250 – 1,200 words (some articles may be longer).
Regrettably, not all articles are appropriate for us. To help save you time and guesswork, the most common reasons for rejection include unoriginal content or ideas, articles that do not reflect our modern and novel ethic, or articles that are offered for the sole purpose of building a strong back link.
We look forward to sharing great news and views and content from you with our audience soon!
