You must also have a blog and complete the survey. We’re conducting research for future product development and your help is extremely valuable to us.
You can read the complete rules at the bottom of this post.
What to Write
The possibilities are endless. You could write about an interesting way you come up with new topics, a streamlined method you use for curating great content in your niche, a title writing tip, or a promotional strategy.
If your tip can help readers to be more effective bloggers, feel free to share it. Like all blog posts, however, make sure it reads clearly, is easy to follow and is compelling. People won’t likely vote for tips with boring titles, for example. Nor will they vote for your great idea if it’s just one line with no elaboration. So, make sure readers can follow your instructions.
It’s OK to source ideas from other places– I kinda doubt that I came up with my best ideas on my own! However, be sure to cite your source, and don’t copy and past your tip. We review all submissions and won’t permit outright copying without proper credit. Wherever you learned about the tip, be a good teacher and put it into your own words.
We’ll be sure to give credit to all the worthy tips we receive through posts, tweets and shares in the weeks to follow. So get writing and good luck!
