Why Write For Us?
Please note, we do not monetarily compensate our contributors for submissions, however there are still many reasons to write for us.
1. You’ll reach a global community around the world.
At present, we have newsletter subscribers from multiple countries and territories around the world, and even more countries once you factor in our social media followers. If your article is submitted for publication, we’re committed to having it reach as many readers as possible. Your contribution will go out in our newsletter, get posted to the blog, and shared on social media. We’re also creating an author page which keeps track of all your contributions, (this helps your rankings on Google and if you submit more than one article, readers can view your past contributions on our site). Our readers share tips with their family, friends and clients. They love to discuss ideas and they’re excited to learn more that helps them become their best self and inspires those around them.
2. You’ll positively impact lives.
We’re firm believers that when you live a life of service, life begins to serve and reward you. You’ll also get to participate in a revolution. We want to inspire a paradigm shift in the way people view themselves, life, health, happiness and do business. The more people we have on board to contribute to this mission, the faster we can liberate people across the world.
3. You’ll advance your career and fulfill your professional goals.
As a contributor to our site, we respect, honor and appreciate your personal goals. We’d be happy to drive high quality traffic your way. Your contribution to our site will include your bio with links back to your site and social media pages, creating a win win all around. This is a great way for you to get free exposure for your products, services, or blog. Our readers get to explore your content more deeply, and you get to reach the people who need to hear your message, or who need to experience your work the most. You’ll grow your personal brand, gain more experience being of service to others, have more engagement on social media and you’ll attract more clients. Not to mention, you never know who’s reading our blog. Being featured on our site could open opportunities for business partnerships, high end events that include YOU as the speaker, book deals, interviews or other advancements in your career.
4. You get to connect with like minded people.
We all desire to be among “our tribe.” Whether you’re looking to network with professionals, be supported by people who “get you”, want to give yourself public accountability to enhance a certain area of your life, attract your ideal client, or ignite a nourishing discussion about a topic you’re passionate about, we’re confident you can manifest your intent in this community.
5. You’ll be seen as an expert which you can leverage
Nothing expedites the “trust” or “authority factor” like being featured with a respected source. We scrutinize and filter the submissions that come in to be sure we only provide high quality tips, and truly inspirational stories. Our high quality content will spread each day. As we grow, you’ll grow with us. Once we become the “go to source” for inspiration and advice, you can leverage the fact that you’ve been spotlighted on our site.
6. The people you are looking for will find you.
As the old adage states, “what you’re looking for is looking for you.” Whether you are looking for the right professionals to network with, the ideal clients, or a new circle of supportive people in your corner, you won’t have to try so hard. By having a featured contribution, the right folks will find you. Just put your all into your submissions, engage in the community, reply to comments, and you’re sure to make the right connections.
