Customer Marketing Alliance is home to a growing network of thousands of practitioners from all over the world.
Each year, our website receives tens of thousands of visits from marketers from some of the world's leading companies, all looking to learn more about the latest trends and strategies of customer experience, advocacy, retention, and communication.
To feed our ever-expanding community, we're always on the lookout for people just like you to share your expertise and help us shape the next evolution of customer marketing.
If you're interested in sharing your insights and experiences with one of the world's largest marketing communities, then read on to find out how you can contribute to our platform.
Write for us ✍️
Each and every month, 1000s of people make their way onto our site. That’s a lot of eyes and exposure for your article.
So, whether you want to write about deepening customer relationships, customer advisory boards, approaches to customer retention, internal collaboration, marketing techniques, or engagement strategies, we want to hear more.
If you’ve got the insights, we’ve got the platform.
Here’s how to contribute 👇🏼
Step 1: Submit your subject 🧑🎓
Before you put your fingers on the keyboard, drop us a line and let us know what you want to write about. Some popular topics include:
- Voice of the Customer
- Customer marketing metrics
- Producing user-generated content
- Sustainability in customer marketing
Step 2: Follow the rules 🛑
We’re a reasonable bunch and we don’t expect too much, but what we do ask for is:
- Articles to be no shorter than 800 words
- Any pictures included to be royalty-free
- A picture to sit with your contributor profile
- A short bio (200 characters or less)
Also, individual contributions shouldn’t promote your company’s products or services. For that sort of stuff, we have sponsorship opportunities.
See below for these opportunities!
Step 3: Submit your work 📩
Either send us (Eve or Kelly) a message on Slack or reach us by email and remember to include the link/attachment to your article along with your profile pic and bio - if you’re not already set up as a contributor, that is.
Have you already published something awesome elsewhere?
Not a problem. With custom canonical links, you can still share it with our audience too.
Yawn 💤 time for the boring (but important!) bits…
We include images with every post. Stock photography will be chosen by our team and will be posted with your entry unless you have a particular image you wish to use. By including any photos, screenshots, or images, you consent to allow Customer Marketing Alliance to post this image with proper credit to you and/or the creator.
Links in your post should be relevant to the story you’re telling and provide context to your audience. When referring to another article or piece of research, please use proper citations or links to the source material.
We reserve the right to use any and all contributed content, with credit to any authors, in its entirety or in portions for promotional purposes, including in social media, other blogs, or newsletters. Customer Marketing Alliance may choose to cross-post to Medium, LinkedIn, or other blogging services.
