People often ask us how they can contribute to the Ubergizmo editorial. If you are reading this page, you are probably interested, so thank you.

What makes a great guest post?

Like every other article, it starts with a desire to genuinely share something that is very informative about a topic that you care deeply about and are very knowledgeable about. Of course, you also have to be able to communicate it with clarity and style.

This is not a rule, but most of the time, we found that industry insiders make great contributors, and it makes sense: who is more qualified and knowledgeable than someone who has been working on a particular topic for years?

A great post is also one that has no conflict of interest. While it may be tempting for some to “plug” their own products, the article will quickly lose its credibility and become irrelevant, if not perceived as misleading. Taking a neutral stance and having the readers interest as the only priority is the way to go.

Giving credit where it is due

We particularly appreciate the time and effort that was put into writing a guest post, so we want to put the author front and center by adding an author photo, short biography and links to relevant pages in a highly visible section of the page. It usually look like this:

What are great guest post topics?

There are a lot of great topics to cover, but we found a few to be particularly suited to guest posts

  • Industry analysis: provide your expert opinion about a particular news topic or trend
  • How to: explain how to get something done

How to proceed?

We never promise that we will publish a guest post submission, but ideally, you can send us a unique article that is in its final form. We can review it and provide some feedback, and hopefully we will like it! Also, please provide us with a LinkedIn link which will be very useful for us to contact you and to understand your background.

You can also contact us to pitch an idea. This is more time consuming for us, but it is nonetheless possible. Please submit a clear idea with enough details for us to think about. It is also very important to establish your identity and credentials so that we understand where you come from and why you are particularly knowledgeable on a given topic.

Important: if we cannot establish your identity, we will skip your submission. anonymous emails will not get our attention.
