If you decide to submit an article or opinion piece, consider these tips:
1. Select a Topic You Care About and Believe Others Will Too!
Topics can be anything related to the field of health, wellness, and coaching. Once you’ve selected your topic, you’ll want to consider why readers should care about it and why it’s important to them. Lastly, ask yourself if you’d want to read the article that you plan to write.
2. Add a Catchy Headline and Engaging Introduction
The title and introduction draw people in. A few easy ways to make the introduction more appealing include starting with a story, asking a question, or stating a fact or statistic.
3.Share Your Voice
Share your voice and unique perspective.
4. Use Stories (When Applicable)
If you have a specific story about your topic, add it in. This adds a dimension of creativity and vulnerability, making the post more engaging and relatable.
5. Uphold Confidentiality
If you are writing about a particular person or incident, please be mindful of confidentiality. We never want to share another’s identity without their consent. For example, when referring to clients, we don’t need to use their names or any specific identifying factors other than what is relevant to the story. We will ask you for proof of consent prior to publication.
6. Make It Conversational and Professional
The best articles are ones that speak to us as though we are having a conversation with a good friend. This means avoiding technical jargon, highly formal language, or an overly academic tone, while at the same time, speaking from the perspective of an expert.
7. Call to Action
Enhance the value of your piece by sharing tips or next steps with our readers.
8. Check Your Facts!
Please include all resources supporting your fact checking so that we know you’ve done your due diligence. We maintain high ethical standards and strive to deliver original and factual information only. Please further attach all references as hyperlinks in your article text, only using footnotes if necessary.
