Contributor Guidelines

Creating an insightful piece of content comes at a certain price. Choosing an interesting topic is one, conducting thorough research is two, and producing a thought-provoking article counts as three. At Tidio, we believe that these three steps are crucial for delivering a masterpiece.

Write for Tidio

What does “valuable content” mean

Be sure you know what to write about. 

Research the topic, formulate a thesis statement, write an outline. If you wish your pitch ranked as top-notch, pay special attention to the language being accessible to every user, and try to befriend the Google search engine.  

Here are a few more things to consider.

Be data-obsessed!

Joining Tidio’s writing club even as a guest means that you understand the importance of supporting your statements with solid data. 

  • Make sure you conduct thorough research on your chosen topic.
  • Include relevant statistics, research findings and case studies in all forms (links, infographics, screenshots).
  • Link only to the trusted sources and articles that will bring value to our readers.

Language-wise

  • The message you’re trying to convey must be simple, clear and comprehensive. Remember that most Internet users skim the text to find passages that they are looking for. The quicker they find them, the better. 
  • Don’t forget you write for humans! Write like a cool person that we know you are. We talk, we joke and we laugh because real connections with people is what we care about. Therefore, feel free to include humor in your article (jokes, pictures).
  • Simplicity is the key! Make your article is easy to read and comprehend. We are looking for conversation-like pieces that can be read in one sitting and encourage to reach for more.  

SEO? Yes, please!

Google loves our content. We want it to be easy to swallow not just for the readers, but also for the search engine. This is why we produce SEO-friendly texts, to generate greater visibility for people seeking answers. We do it by following these steps: 

  • the article fits in the word limit of 1,500 – 2,500 words;
  • the article targets one or two long-tail keywords based on primary and top-level keywords;
  • the article includes relevant links to other articles on our blog, as well as, external sources that support your findings;
  • the article includes short, informative and catchy headings;
  • the article is clearly structured into the following sections: introduction, main body, conclusion;
  • the article is reinforced with visuals (infographics, statistics, bullet points).

We will include a link to your website in an author’s bio.
