Successful guest contributions are well written, comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something important about the world of technology. We mainly look for articles covering anything related to software or hardware, education, finance or general technology, cryptocurrency, applications, digital devices and any other aspects of technology entering our lives like technology regulations, data protection, business solutions – you name it.
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
- Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere.
- Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
- No more than one link to your company’s website in the body of the post.
- Useful images or graphics to enhance the content, for how-to articles also screenshots or short tutorials.
- Your author bio with a short brief about your background.
How to become a Tech Guest Author?
If you are interested in publishing articles around the topic of technology, you can get in touch with us and we will check your draft article first. If approved by the editors, it will go live on the website within the following 3 working days usually, but at times we experience high volumes of submissions and it may take longer.
You can add your individual author profile with your photo (minimum 200×200 pixels) to your article. You can add information about yourself and use it to promote your work elsewhere.
Ideally we’re looking for articles with at least 800 words. The style can vary, see examples here:
- Research / Analysis: If you are a tech expert or researcher yourself or you want to share research evidence/an analysis you consider important, please share it in your article with relevant data/infographics and references. Share your valuable insights with the community in writing and send it over. These posts should include your collected data, actionable takeaways, and thorough descriptions of the process.
- Canonical: These articles should provide in-depth and hands-on tactical guidance that is supported by relevant examples, original quotes, and current data. It should help readers be able to plan their procedure of implementation or come up with their own strategy.
- Tutorials: These posts rely heavily on screen shots, an infographic or SlideShare created by the author. Usually, they feature a few paragraphs of introduction, the embedded media itself, and a brief description of each section, e.g. for each graphic add a short paragraph providing background information. Here you can display how to use an educational app or software for example.
- Reviews: you can review any technological product or service and share it with us. If we find that it is useful for our audience, we will publish it.
These formats are the most common, however, we do also publish posts that may not fall into any of those categories, if we find them suitable for our audience, so don’t shy away from being original.
