How are Contributing Writers selected? Anyone can volunteer to be a Contributing Writer. Our editors are looking for applicants we can trust as experts, and prefer that you have proven expertise in your topic, either through professional involvement, as a dedicated hobbyist, or as a book author or journalist (online or print).
What types of articles are we looking for? Respond is looking for original articles containing useful tips and practical advice for consumers focused around a specific topic in the Home Improvement, Financial Services, Wedding Services, and other areas.
What makes for a great article? Your article is more likely to be published when it:
- Contains new and original content
- Answers specific questions people are asking
- Solves a problem that people are experiencing
- Offers intelligent insight, as opposed to saying something that’s obvious
- Has a title that gets a reader’s interest, such as “How To” lists, “Top 10” lists, “Things to Avoid” lists, “Steps To” lists, and many others
- Does not directly promote your business or become a sales letter for your personal brand.
- Contains generally between 600-800 words, and no more than 1000 words.
