Contributor Community - Article Submission Guidelines

The CMSWire Contributor Community forms a key part of our editorial services. Our Contributor Community is comprised of expert practitioners and seasoned industry luminaries who bring fresh insights directly from the customer experience trenches.

We selectively accept new members with a strong preference for senior level practitioners who are able to meet our editorial guidelines. You may apply to become a CMSWire Contributor.

What We Look For

We are looking for original articles that share unique and useful information on topics within our broad areas of coverage: customer experience, digital marketing, marketing automation, customer journey mapping and more. How-to articles, actionable tips or thought pieces which bring new ideas or unique experience to our readers are all welcome.

Keep in mind: our audience is a knowledgeable and engaged group, so write your articles for professionals with 10 or more years of experience in their fields. But chances are if you worked through an issue or overcame a challenge, others are experiencing the same and would benefit from hearing about what you did. 

What We Aren't Looking For

We love to hear about your experience in the field, but please don't promote your company, your product or your service. Content that comes off as promotional in any way will be rejected.

We typically work with senior-level practitioners, but will selectively accept articles from notable leaders working for vendors. In the latter case the content must be focused on a business problem or industry analysis that is of broad interest.

What to Expect

If we accept your application, here are a few things to know:

  • All articles are subject to editing.
  • Links may be added for context.
  • Art will be added at the discretion of CMSWire's editors.
  • CMSWire will promote your article on our homepage, in our newsletters and social channels.

Sponsored Content?

If you are looking to get your product- or service-oriented content published on CMSWire, then this would fall under our Sponsored Content & Brand Boosting programs. Please contact [email protected] to discuss any sponsored content and brand boosting opportunities.
