BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR – WRITE FOR US!
If you share the same passion as us for Digital Marketing, we welcome you to write for us. All articles submitted will go through a thorough screening process for quality and topic relevance. Our primary target audience is local industry professionals, marketing executives, small business owners.
We are looking for writers with a strong written command of the English language, and are knowledgeable about Digital Marketing from both strategic and execution perspectives. You will write comprehensive, data-driven, and engaging posts that ensures your reader can take away insights needed to effectively tackle real-world problems afterward.
Avoid dense jargon and abstract concepts without balancing research or examples to illustrate your point of view. If you are making blanket assertions such as “SEO is dead” or “All marketers need an MBA to stay relevant”, be sure to back those up with the relevant research or evidence.
Here are some types of articles that would fit with our audience:
- Thought-leadership articles
- Well-researched opinions
- Fresh strategies that offer actionable tips
- Tutorials or how-to guides
Do ensure that your work follows the guidelines below as closely as possible.
- Your article should be 100% original and not plagiarised in any way.
- Your article should be more than 500 words in length, excluding the title and subheadings.
- British English over American English.
- When quoting others’ work, including references/external hyperlinks within the body.
- Include at least 2 pictures. Ensure you own full copyrights to reproduce any images or graphics, or they are royalty free.
- It would be a bonus if you can create your own simple diagrams or infographics to illustrate your point better. For example, in the article “What is SEO?”, the author has created a few simple illustrations using Keynote to help readers understand the points better.
- Avoid sensationalism, inflammatory statements, and hyped-up clickbait. Here are some examples we do not accept:
- “7 SEO hacks that are total game-changers.”
- “Digital Marketing Is Dying: Change My Mind.”
- Content should be comprehensive and backed by relevant examples to further illustrate the point. For example, instead of just stating that “emails should be sent at 7 pm to maximize open rates”, explain why and back it up with a research or study.
- Voice + Tone: Polished, warm, cordial, objective, constructive. You may also refer to the articles on our website to get a better idea of how we write.

A brief outline of your past experiences or links to your previous writings will be very useful.
