Each and every month, 1000s of people make their way onto our site. That’s a lot of eyes and exposure for your article. So, whether you want to write about crafting the perfect onboarding process, running an ultra-efficient advocacy program, best practices when implementing a snazzy new retention strategy, or anything in between, we want to hear more.

If you’ve got the insights, we’ve got the platform. Here’s how to contribute

Follow the rules

We’re a reasonable bunch and we don’t expect too much, but what we do ask for is:

  • Articles to be no shorter than 1,200 words
  • Any pictures included to be royalty-free
  • A picture to sit with your contributor profile
  • A short bio (200 characters or less)

Also, individual contributions shouldn’t promote your company’s products or services. For that sort of stuff, we have sponsorship opportunities. See below for these opportunities!

(Note about ChatGPT) 👇

We will not publish any articles created by a generative AI tool, like ChatGPT! We have to be extra careful about publishing AI-generated text because of potential SEO issues and wanting to maintain originality for our readers. We want expert insights from CS leaders like yourself, so let your voice shine! We’ll happily edit your work, but the bones of it need to be your own words! 😀

Step 3: Submit your work

Fire your content over – you can find our Content Lead, Grace, or our Content Associate, Hannah, in the community Slack channel or, if you'd prefer, you can drop us a good old-fashioned email at:

Please remember to include the link/attachment to your article along with your profile pic and bio - if you’re not already set up as a contributor, that is.

Already published something awesome elsewhere?

Not a problem. With custom canonical links, you can still share it with our audience too.

Yawn 💤 time for the boring bits…

By including any photos, screenshots, or images, you consent to allow CSC to post this image with proper credit to you and/or the creator.

Link policy: Links in your post should be relevant to the story you’re telling and provide context to your audience. When referring to another article or piece of research, please use proper citations or links to the source material.

Syndication policy: We reserve the right to use any and all contributed content, with credit to any authors, in its entirety or portions for promotional purposes, including in social media, other blogs, or newsletters. CSC may choose to cross-post to Medium, LinkedIn, or other blogging services.
