Write for SuccessGroove!

Yes! We accept bylined “how to” articles and opinion pieces for our website and daily newsletter.

We also publish daily summaries of research findings based on polls, surveys, and research studies conducted by marketers, academia, PR firms, and other researchers.

1. Contribute bylined “how to” articles for SuccessGroove.com

Bylined articles (800-1,000 words or so of body text) written from an objective viewpoint and conveying valuable how-to content (practical advice, actionable tips, and useful know-how) in a fresh, approachable voice are more likely to meet SuccessGroove standards—and therefore more likely to be accepted for publication. See, as examples, the following three articles:

  1. Bulldog Inspires Woman’s $50 Million Startup
  2. How to be Grateful for the Simple Things
  3. How to Turn Your Dreams into Reality

We will inform you if your article has been accepted for publication; expect to hear from us within a week or so of our having received your email. If we choose not to accept your article, you may or may not hear from us, depending on how crowded our inbox is.

Articles accepted for publication will be edited for clarity and brevity and to conform to the SuccessGroove house style. We will likely change your title, too, so you might want to suggest some alternatives.

So, if you are interested in joining the growing list of SuccessGroove contributors — on a one-time or a regular basis — here are some guidelines:

  1. Articles should be original to the author and unpublished elsewhere.
  2. Articles should offer readers clear advice, takeaways, and practical how-to tips about a specific marketing topic or approach to marketing. Bullet points are good. Meandering text is not.
  3. At the beginning of your article, list two or three bullet points summarizing its key takeaways—the lessons learned and the how-tos contained in the article. They will be published along with the article.
  4. Include a brief bio of 25 words, including LinkedIn and Twitter contact info, if available, and a recent headshot (make sure your entire head is in the picture).
  5. Include relevant links in parentheses, next to the words to be linked (i.e., do not embed the links).
  6. Submit articles in Word format (no PDF files, please), as email attachments.
  7. If you submit an article that mentions businesses or companies in which you have a vested interest, disclose as much to the audience.
  8. The author retains copyright, but SuccessGroove may reprint your piece, with full attribution, in SuccessGroove products, including marketing materials.
  9. We do not pay guest contributors for their occasional articles.
