Our 5-step publishing process
Submit your article or pitch
Submit a pitch using the form at the bottom of this page. Include an article outline that explains what you want to talk about: Be specific and mention why you have the necessary expertise and experience. You can also submit a finished article but we may choose not to publish the article or request that you make edits so it fits our style. With that in mind, we recommend starting with a pitch. If you want to be paid for your article, make it clear at this stage so we can iron out the details before starting.
We read every submission and will respond within 14 business days if you are successful. We’ll then move on to the next steps. If you don’t hear from us within 14 days, your article wasn’t selected. This is usually due to the pitch not being a good fit for our audience or not following our editorial guidelines. We can’t provide personalized feedback, but you may submit a new guest post for consideration at any time.
The editing process
If your article is selected, our editorial team will contact you to get the writing process started. This typically includes finalizing your article outline or requesting edits if you sent an article draft. Once you’ve submitted a completed draft, we’ll make final edits and send you the finished article for your approval.
Promoting the article
We’ll publish your article and promote it in our newsletter and on social channels. We encourage you to share the article with your audience and engage readers in the comment discussions.
Once your article is published, we can start the payment process. You can send us an invoice with your details and we will send payments in USD via bank transfer or PayPal.
Please complete the form and include a link to your draft or outline in a Google Doc.

Frequently asked questions
Can I also publish the article on my blog?
We own all work published on our blog. In some cases, we’re happy for you to publish the article to your blog as long as you use a noindex tag so it doesn’t compete with our version on Google. You won’t be able to publish the article anywhere else if you receive payment.
How long does payment take?
You can invoice us as soon as the article is live. We aim to process all payments within 14 days.
Will the article be published in my name?
Yes, all guest articles are published in the name of the writer. This ensures you get full credit and exposure for the article.
*Please send a pitch and get confirmation from our team before starting if you want to be paid for your article. We typically pay for content that we would have otherwise been happy to outsource.
