Editorial Process: What to Expect
We review each pitch and reach out within one week if the topic is a good fit. If you don't hear back from us within a week, your piece isn't the right fit for us at this time.
After receiving a completed article, we take 3-4 weeks to review it and share feedback. We use our "Writer's Checklist" (below) to edit articles.
Please check that your completed article includes every item on the checklist before submitting.
We expect writers to update their article based on our feedback before publication.

More Information About What We're Looking For
We create content that helps readers make informed business decisions. The more detail, examples, and actionable instructions, the better. We want to be the one-stop-shop for people seeking to do business better, which means a reader shouldn’t have to look up another source when reading your article.
We have high standards that we stick to, in order to avoid contributing to the content deluge. All articles should meet three goals:
- Inform readers about business processes, challenges, scenarios, and tools, using case studies, examples, data, and images.
- Educate readers about steps they should take to innovate and enhance their business and why.
- Guide readers through the process of solving pressing business challenges and making informed decisions, using actionable, step-by-step instructions and visuals.
