Want to write for PERSONALITY?

You think you got what it takes to contribute to PERSONALITY? Well we want to hear from you! We welcome contributors, so to ensure you have the best chances of your pitch being accepted, these are a few guidelines we use to ensure content helps you, helps our community and preserves the PERSONALITY brand.

Our Content
Our content above all seeks to educate and entertain our audience through stories from leaders and valuable advice on how to grow your business and increase sales by increasing one’s brand visibility, credibility and authority. We reserve our features and editorial content for the magazine, but contributors are able to fall into a few main categories on the blog or within the publication. These are:

  • Personal Branding
  • Business and personal development
  • Personal Style
  • Technology
  • Social media

Once your pitch has been approved, we will get in touch within 7 days to let you know. After which you can submit your article.

We favour articles that are simple and provide actionable advice for our readers. This will allow them to extract value from your contribution while positioning you as an expert who gives reliable advice.  Therefore articles that are “ how to” or “lists” or “lessons learnt”  are great places to start.

While we want your advice to be simple, we don’t want it to be boring. After all, this is PERSONALITY, we like advice that’s off the beaten track and we want to feel your personality in your words. Make us feel things when you write. We like articles that are at least 1,500-2000 words long, so dig deep and give us your best.

All articles must be submitted with at least 2 horizontal HD images ( up to 4 is fine), even if these images are stock. If your submission has no images, it will not be accepted. All images also need to be free from copyrights or be approved for publishing. Any images that are known to be unauthorized will be removed along with your contribution.

Be sure to thoroughly edit your content before submitting. Our team is very small and we have no additional capacity to do detailed editing.

You will be listed as the author of your article. Therefore your article submission needs to include:

  • Your headshot
  • A 30-40 word bio
  • Your preferred email address

What we don’t publish
Articles submitted are allowed to contain at least one back link that leads to your site. Of course, we want our contributors to benefit from our traffic.

We don’t accept articles that link 3rd party products and services especially if these links clash with our existing partners. If your articles contain 3rd party links, these links will be deactivated before publication.

We also don’t accept articles that don’t fall in line with our content pillars.
