I accept sponsored posts and guest posts on this site. Please read through these guidelines on the submission process before contacting me.
All posts must be relevant to the readers of this blog: artists looking to build a business from their art. In that regard, many topics are acceptable including (but not limited to) creativity, productivity, marketing art, dealing with tough business topics, connecting with art collectors, anything to do with galleries or art fairs, etc.
Posts on this blog are typically shorter, but the goal is for the post to explain what it needs to explain. My philosophy is to do that and JUST that. Be succinct and keep to one particular topic and I am likely to love it.
Am I a Sponsor or a Guest?
This depends on your topic and who writes it. Send me a note about what you’re thinking and we can discuss it.
Sponsored posts are $250 per post. Guest posts are free, but you are required to share the link to the post on your social media platforms to drive excitement when the post goes live.
What’s The Process?
Please start by reading a few of my posts to get a sense for style, length, and topic. That way you won’t put in the work if what you want to write is not going to be a good fit.
Then come up with 1-3 topic ideas you’d like to share with me and send me a short email proposing them. If you have a specific date you’d like the blog posted, please let me know in this initial email contact. I will give you the go-ahead on the topic if I think it’s a good fit and we can talk about whether it’s a sponsored post or a guest post.
Once you have written the post, send it to me via email. I prefer the post copy/pasted into the email rather than attached in a file or sent via Dropbox. Please include a headshot and a short (3-4 sentence) bio. You may include one relevant link in your bio. Please do not include links in the body of the post unless absolutely necessary. I’m ruthless about clearing out unnecessary links.
I will look it over and make edits for grammar, punctuation, and clarity. I reserve the right to cancel your post if after reading it I don’t think it will benefit my audience.
I will schedule your post to go live and send you the upcoming publish date.
When the post is live, I will share it on my social media platforms a couple times and then schedule it to post on Facebook and Twitter occasionally in future months. I will also share it in my next newsletter (which typically goes out on Sunday or Monday).
I don’t mind an initial email to ask a question or get my feedback on an idea. Just send it over and I’ll get back to you within 2 days.
