Anything that educates, provides insights or can add value to event, marketing or sales professionals – especially B2B exhibitors. We’re most interested in publishing articles on the following topics relating to events:
- Lead generation
- Lead management
- Exhibitor best practices
- Technology and innovation
- Measuring and reporting
- Events as a marketing channel
- Reflective pieces based on real insights and data
Here are some examples of our most popular articles:
- Introducing Event Qualified Leads (EQLs)
- 5 Methods for Collecting Leads at Trade Shows
- 30 tips for exhibiting at trade shows and events
- What digital transformation means for the events industry in 2019
Our audience consists of smart B2B marketers and event professionals who know the basics – so think about intermediate to expert level content.
Content formats we publish
As a guest author, we want you to provide a unique perspective on one of the above-mentioned topics (or anything else you think is relevant). In order to do that in a way that makes sense for our target audience, we ask that you please approach your article using one of the following angles:
- Strategic benefits of specific practices, relating to the topics listed above
- Best practices for executing particular events initiatives; how businesses can see ROI and revenue growth from these initiatives
- Summaries of research findings, conducted by you or other industry thought leaders
- “How-to” articles that speak to your own experiences or expertise
- Occasional thought leadership pieces
Submitting a pitch
Before you start writing your article, we want to make sure we’re on the same page. Please send a pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
- Three topic ideas. For each, include a quick introduction of how you would approach the topic, and 3 bullet points summarising your main points.
- Who you are, and why you’re in an ideal position to write about this topic.
A member of the Akkroo team (probably me!) will review your content, and get back to you, normally within 5 working days. We will then work with you to finalise and publish your article.
- Content must be original, educational and provide real value to event professionals. We don’t publish pushy sales content, so please don’t send overly promotional pieces.
- All references, statistics, and research should be cited by linking to the original source.
- All contributors should have images they are permitted and licensed to share. (We can help with this if you need visuals).
- Articles should be 500-1000 words in length.
- Include a small bio for your author profile. This should be no longer than 100 words, and will feature at the end of the article. Remember to include a link to your website or blog!
- Attach a picture for your author bio, or provide a link where a picture can be used (e.g. LinkedIn profile).
