What’s in it for you?
All GoDaddy Canada Blog authors get a byline on their articles, plus a dedicated author-profile page. It’s a great opportunity to boost your visibility as a writer, build your credibility as an expert, and earn recognition from our Canadian audience of small business owners and other customers.
So, what are we looking for?
Interesting topics. We want articles that give our readers new insights and ideas, and show them how to put those insights into practice. If they can learn from your experience, all the better. The blog editorial team both assigns specific article topics and accepts writer pitches — so if you’ve got a great idea that you think will appeal to our readership, send it our way!
Trending topics. We’re looking for a fresh take on trending topics in your area of expertise. Write about what you know: your experiences, expertise and professional opinions (just be sure to cite sources where appropriate to support your claims). Pitch us your topic and we’ll let you know if it’s a good fit for our audience and editorial calendar.
Original work. All submitted work must be original (not syndicated/republished from elsewhere).
No blatant self-promotion. We’re happy to include a few link-backs to relevant related content on your blog or website, but guest posts should not include blatant self-promotion, marketing or sales pitches.
Strong voice. Our blog’s editorial tone is fun and conversational, even a bit irreverent. We seek writers with authority who also keep it real.
Deadlines. We love ‘em. We will give you ample time to complete assignments and provide timely revisions, but we like to stick to a schedule.
In all cases, we reserve the right to make edits to submitted work for content, formatting, style and tone.
If that all sounds good, please get writing! Drop us a note with your article submission to: CanadaBlog@GoDaddy.com.
Please note that due to the volume of submissions we receive, we may not be able to publish all articles.
