CONTENT GUIDELINES

Want To Write For Us?

If you’re as fascinated by bots & AI as we are, or are a recognized expert in your space, we’d love to promote your content on TOPBOTS.com. Simply follow the editorial guidelines below to understand what we’re looking for and determine if your articles are a good fit.

Editorial Guidelines

Content

Original and Relevant
We prefer content all-new and all-you. Do not repurpose existing work. Make sure that you check all your facts and attribute accurately. Any content submitted will have a two-week exclusive on our site. After that, feel free to do whatever you want with it (as long as you remove any images we purchased or created).

Self-Promotion
Please do NOT self promote. This includes using screenshots of your own product or service in a promotional way. The content on TOPBOTS is aimed to be educational. If you are unsure, ask yourself “Would someone who does not know me or my company find this article useful?? You can include a single link to relevant material housed on a website, with our editorial team making the final decision.

Content Type
We welcome a variety of articles of intermediate and advanced levels. We seek to provide actionable articles based on real-world results to our readers. If you have an original idea, however, please contact us and we’ll consider it. Our readership is composed of consumer tech enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, marketers, investors and Fortune 500 executive. Our goal at TOPBOTS is to educate and inform society and businesses about artificial intelligence and bots — how they work, how to build them, how to implement them, etc.

Length
All submitted articles must be at least 500 words, but, since we edit each submission, we recommend new authors send us a draft of at least 1,000 words. Be sure to include plenty of quality advice and examples.

Headlines
Make sure your content has a strong headline and opener to attract readers. If you are unsure of the headline, suggest a few headlines we will pick the best one.

Links
When you refer to a name, company, tool, or quote, include a link to the source so readers can discover more, like this: Adelyn Zhou founded TOPBOTS. Use the source’s original link.  

Link to at least one other relevant TOPBOTS post if relevant.  This allows readers to find additional resources on our site, and helps us track unauthorized copies of your work.

 

Images and Video

We recommend one image for every section or article overall. At minimum, please include a header image with a minimum resolution of  1600 x 800 px. Please don’t stack multiple images without out text in between. Whenever possible, use the highest resolution images you can find. Make sure you own and have rights to all content submitted with your article. Include proof of that permission with your article submission.

When using screenshots, highlight important points with a red circle or box and explain how the image refers back to the copy / point you’re making in the text.

You may use video in your posts. If you would like to link to other YouTube and Vimeo videos, include the URL to the video and we’ll embed.

 

Copyright

You own it and retain all rights to your content. However, once published on our website, we receive a two-week exclusive license and a non exclusive transferable license for us to use and promote the content in perpetuity on our site and elsewhere.

 

Article Review and Publication

Editorial can take up to 3-4 weeks. Once submitted, we will contact you if we need additional information, edits, images, or rewrites.
