Brandingmag essentials


Brandingmag is a rapidly growing digital platform and our goal is to maintain the quality of the content we produce on a daily basis.

As a contributor to Brandingmag, your articles need to be:

Related to the Industry (Column)

Articles cannot be used as a promotional tool for another company (e.g., your clients) or be sponsored in any way.

Exclusive & Timely

Your articles must be unique to Brandingmag and cannot be published anywhere else before being published on our platform. Additionally, we require contributors to publish pieces in a regular cadence.

Thematic

Our readers view contributors very much like traditional columnists, returning for particular topics that they have selected as their fields of expertise. That being said, we ask that our contributors select a topic to focus on throughout their contributions.

If Brandingmag sounds like a community you’d like to be a part of, then please fill out the form below.

City and country of residence*

Brandingmag likes to keep track of our contributors’ location. We often get media/press passes from event organizers and gift these to our regular contributors that are in the area.

A short and concise bio is best. It will be easier for both our editors and our readers to get to know you. We'll use this to review your proposal, but also to show it on the website. Each author has a custom profile at the end of his/her published articles and a unique profile in the authors' section of the website (where you’ll appear after your second contribution). Important links will be added separately, so don’t waste characters on adding links here.
