How to submit articles for free

Previously, this page had a large text about what kind of texts we like and how best to write them. But it didn't work. So we decided to make a new version, very simple. Here she is.

You can send an article to us through the “Send an article or newsfeed” button or by email . But first, please read our material requirements.

What articles do we not accept?

One of the most common mistakes made by experts and PR professionals is an attempt to pass off an advertising/native article as an original one. If the main purpose of the material is to advertise a service or product, it will not be published. No matter how you try to hide it, we will definitely notice it. Such materials may only be published on a commercial basis .

Solving a problem or completing a business task requires a detailed description. Therefore, we do not skip small notes of 500–1000 characters that are more suitable for publishing on Twitter. As a rule, they have minimal practical use and are not particularly interesting to readers.

We also do not like errors, typos, inaccuracies and other technical defects. Please read the article carefully before submitting to eliminate any shortcomings. And be sure to read the terms and conditions described below.

How to avoid editorial rejection

  1. Write about what’s relevant. The news feed should be relevant and solve pressing problems of the audience. For example, readers are interested in detailed cases and new approaches to promoting and developing a business:

    how to attract 200 million Dollars of investment through YouTube or get new clients through podcasts , how employee adaptation works or how the sales department works in someone’s company. But once again there is no point in telling why a product needs contextual advertising.

    Ideally, first agree on the topic and theses on which you want to write an article with the editor:

  2. Follow the rules of editorial policy. We publish articles with an average length of 8 thousand characters, which are structured by subheadings and are 100% unique .

    Do not use a drawn-out introduction, introductory constructions, colloquialisms, terminology without explanation, complex constructions and adverbial phrases. Describe the problem in 2-3 opening paragraphs, and devote the rest of the volume to useful information.

    Finally, briefly summarize your findings. Give useful advice, remind you of the main idea, or call for some action. Readers don't like it when an article ends abruptly.

  3. Write to the editor. The text of the letter should be as informative and concise as possible, clearly revealing the value of the article to the audience.

    Don't launch a spam attack. If you sent an article by email, then be sure that it will not be lost anywhere and will not be forgotten. It is important to understand that you are not alone. It takes time for the editors to carefully review your article, usually 1–2 business days.

  4. Be prepared for edits. Our editors can return the article with comments so that you can correct any shortcomings. It's not scary, on the contrary, it's even good. Edits indicate interest in publication, but for this the material needs to be finalized to an ideal state.
