How do I get started? 

Below, you’ll find everything you need to write, submit, and get your article published on Simply follow the directions (and write a great article). 

What do I get out of publishing on 

Creating great content is a two-way street:

  • We will include one do-follow link in your article, subject to prior approval.
  • We will publish the article and upload images.
  • We will optimize your post for search engines.
  • We will include a brief author bio at the end of the article.
  • We often promote articles across other channels.

What kind of guest articles is looking for? 

  • Topics must be written for professionals across creative operations, of course, and other helpful topics for thought leaders and creative professionals in the eCommerce industry. The topic and tone of the article should help the reader expand their technical skills, inspire them, or open their eyes to new ways of thinking.
    • A short list of topics includes creative operations, creative production, creative ops jobs, creative ops event reviews, branding, marketing, freelancing, remote work, social media, content marketing, logo design, UX/UI, productivity, creativity, and more.
  • We’re open to tutorials, opinion articles, tips, resources, ultimate guides, case studies, and any ideas you might have. It’s crucial that the piece is well-researched and provides lasting value to our readers. A great article features actionable advice, instructions, checklists, examples, statistics, and links to reputable sources. 
  • Pitch us your idea and we’ll go from there. Check out our latest posts to see some examples.

What’s the process look like? 

1. Email a list of your article ideas, including a short outline. 
2. Send URLs of 1-3 other articles you’ve written. (The more the better, but no more than 3, please.)
3. We will review it and if it feels right, select the most suitable idea based on your suggestions.
4. Submit your article: remember to abide by the Guest Article Guidelines and use our template when composing your piece.
5. We will get back to you with revision requests.

7. We will let you know when your article is scheduled to be published. Once it goes live, you will be contacted. We would love you to share your article on social media too.

What should I not send? 

  • Previously published content.
  • Posts that do not provide any useful and meaningful insights for creative operations, branding, design, or marketing professionals.
  • Promotional posts, please do not send articles that are actually advertisements for a service, brand, product, or self-servingly promotional. Articles should offer a well-rounded, unbiased, and balanced thought process.
