How to Contribute to DollarTrak

For the most part, we invite people to contribute to DollarTrak. Pitch us your idea. 

We accept contributions from SEO professionals, search marketers, and digital marketers. We are flexible and looking for ad-hoc contributors. We are flexible on when to run your post and will adjust our schedule to work the post in as soon as reasonable.

Posts Must Be Original

This means no plagiarism! We use CopyScape. If you’re caught once passing off someone else’s work as your own you’re gone.

Acceptable Subjects

You are welcome to draw from your own experiences to come up with your own ideas and topics. Please discuss the idea with the us first though.

Always provide actionable tips and practical advice. Share your own experiences. Don’t rely heavily on quoting influencers, experts, or authorities from other sites.

No Pitching

You aren’t writing to sell a product or recommend a particular product or service. You’re writing to share your expertise, information,  insights, and ideas with our audience.

Disclosure Rules

If you have a relationship with a company or someone mentioned in your post, you must disclose it.
