Contributor Guidelines

We post fresh content on our website every week so are always on the look out for unique, new, vibrant articles, features and inclusions. Content needs to inspire, engage, teach our readers something and move them to action.

By providing content or becoming a contributor, you are supporting the development of our community, and growing your personal brand and/or business.

Some tips to get your article published:

  • What's your angle? If you came across this article would you take time to read it?
  • How will our readers find it beneficial?
  • Are you merely submitting something to help you sell your product/business? Or do you have beneficial advice that could be applied to businesses in other fields?
  • What tips do you have?
  • While opinions are great, what studies/research have you found to back up your point?  

Below are some topics to get you started. Use the questions as a guideline, but the list is not exhaustive.  If you have an article, story or some research you think our readers would benefit and learn from, we’d love to hear from you! 

While our content manager will be in touch to let you know if we are interested in your article, with the amount of content posted it is hard to get back to every contributor to let them know when it will be online. Instead, add businesschicks.com.au to your favourites bar and keep checking back!
