Step 2: Follow the rules
We’re a reasonable bunch and don’t expect too much from you. But what we do ask for is:
- More than 1,000 words, please. Anything shorter is too short and we're allll about adding value.
- If you're using images, please make sure they're copyright-free.
- A picture of yourself for your contributor profile—it adds authority and let's people get to know you a little better.
- A small bio about you (no more than 200 characters).
- No promotion, please. ✋ That's what our sponsorship options are for. Any contributed content must be free of product plugs.
Step 3: Submission time
Pssst. If you’d like us to publish an awesome article that’s already live, that's A-okay too. We’ll use custom canonical links to avoid any duplicate content problems - all we need is a link to the original.
The legal bits
Yup, we know this bit's boring buuuut, it's gotta be said.
Images add a lot to a post and help draw the attention of readers. This means we use them with every post.
Our team picks some stock photography.
That’s unless you decide to submit an image. And if you do, by including an image you consent to Customer Success Collective to post the image(s) with a proper credit to you/the image creator.
Keep links in your copy relevant and make sure they’re high-quality sources.
If you’re using a quote or referring to another article, make sure you use proper citations. Either that or just link straight to the source material.
We reserve the right to use any and all contributed content, with credit to any authors, in its entirety or in portions for promotional purposes.
That includes social media, other blogs, and newsletters.
