How To Become a Guest Contributor
At Search Engine Land and Marketing Land, we offer a number of opportunities for industry members to share the benefit of their experience through contributed guest content on a wide variety of topics related to search & digital marketing.
Contributors must provide a minimum of three contributed pieces for standalone features and how-to articles over the course of 3-6 months. Exceptions may be made for very unique content written by a renowned expert on a particular important topic.
Contributors assigned to specific ongoing columns are expected to commit to writing monthly on that same topic for at least 6 to 12 months, and must meet deadlines consistently to maintain their assigned slot, or it may be assigned to another person. Topic fatigue does happen, and on occasion, we will attempt to move columnists around to renew the creative juices.
Full disclosure of agency / client / partner relationships is required at all times, and our editors reserve the right to remove self-promotional content and links, as well as make significant edits to content and headlines.
All accepted contributors must agree to provide original content, with exclusive rights granted to Third Door Media for a period of TWO years.
If accepted as a contributor, you will receive writer guidelines and instructions, as well as a formal writer agreement to execute before any content is published on our properties.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of contributor applications, you may not receive a response. All applications are kept on file and we may contact you in the future if we do not have an available slot for your contributions now.
