How to Contribute

I’d like to contribute content to your site. How do I do this?

We accept two types of content on our site: commentaries written directly on the site and “syndicated” or content that is published by editors directly authorized from Brand Contrast. All contributors must consent to the site’s Community Guidelines and the main topics.

How are articles chosen?

Here’s what we look for in publishable material:

  • Posts that deal directly with our specific subject matter.
  • Articles that help “frame the issues” providing community members with an overview that adds value and puts conversations into perspective.
  • Information that appeals to a broad range of people.
  • Articles that are written in clear, journalistic style.
  • On-topic content that excludes obscenities, marketing content, or blatant self-promotion.

My post did not appear on the site. What happened?

That said, it’s a good idea to see if we’ve received your submitted content before reaching out to our content moderators directly.

  1. If you added a feed, check to see if that feed is in the system.
  2. Now see if you have any published or unpublished posts in the system.
  3. Sometimes it takes a little time until the Brand Contrast team may have checked the content: We reserve the right to not publish contributed content at our discretion.
  4. Please contact our content moderator for information about why your posts are not being published.

Why was my post title changed?

With the exception of minor spelling and grammar corrections, site moderators do not make editorial changes to blog posts without first consulting with our writers. We do reserve the right to change headlines in order to make our stories more visible to search engines. We make our best effort to notify writers in advance about proposed headline changes.

I’d like to delete my post(s)

There are two types of posts that you might be seeing in our system: published posts created by anyone and unpublished posts created by you. We do not typically take down published posts unless we determine that they should not have been published in the first place or are based on completely incorrect information.

If you have a published post that must be taken down, please contact us to complete this task.

Do you accept press releases and news?

Yes, we re-publish press releases and published articles on our site. That said, please see our steps on how to add content to the site and what we look for in publishable material for guidelines on what is likely to be published.

Do you do link exchanges?

We do not do straight across link exchanges.
