What we publish
Our Social Times takes a microscope to social media so busy professionals don’t have to. We publish high-quality, original articles that have a tight focus on social media marketing for brands.
Ultimately, all posts must have their roots in social media marketing and be relevant to brands.
Successful guest contributions must add value to an existing topic, or lead the way in an original one. They must teach social media professionals something they did not know before they read it.
Posts must be:
- Original, compelling, high-quality
- Similar in tone to our existing posts
- Attributable; with all cited information linked to a reputable source
- Up-to-date; do not cite reports or case studies that occurred more than two years ago unless they were particularly important or ground-breaking
Posts must not be:
- Self-promotional. Our readers want to educate themselves about social media, not about brands
- Link heavy. We do not allow any do-follow commercial links in our guest blogs. All links are no-follow and must only be included if they support the points made in the post no-follow link
- Something we’ve covered before, unless it offers a fresh or updated angle
- Overly critical of individuals or companies
- Material that has been published elsewhere – even if extensively rewritten. Posts must be unique.
- Generic. There is no surer way to have a post rejected than by waffling about how ‘big social media is these days’..
