Contribute

Ingenious Britain celebrates the brightest and best small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs in the UK today, which includes sharing your content on our website, which we then share on our many social media platforms.

How you can contribute:

There are two ways to contribute to our website, the first way is by writing a feature article, and the second is by writing a guest blog.

The feature articles we publish fall into the following categories: Sales and Marketing, Technology, Starting Up, Growing Your Business and Money. Four of each category are uploaded to the site each week. We also have our guest blog, of which we upload one a week.

Make sure you let us know which category you are submitting your article for.

What we accept:

For our feature articles we look for advice for small-medium business owners or start-up entrepreneurs, the latest news concerning small UK businesses, anything and everything showcasing the ingenuity of small British businesses.

Top ten tips, what not to do’s, how to’s, and articles with a twist are well received, as is short and snappy writing.

What doesn’t go down well are advertorial pieces, product placement will send your piece to the trash pile, as will boring or re-used content. All articles submitted must be completely original.

For our guest blogs we want opinion pieces, such as thoughts on government policy, start-up stories, “tales from the front”, and case studies. Don’t be afraid to express your opinion, so long as its isn’t libellous!

Specifications:

Submissions for articles should be in the range of 500-800 words, and guest blogs should be no longer than 400 words. Ensure contributions are proof-read and free of errors before you send them across.

Contributions should be accompanied with a dynamic supporting image (head shots will NOT be accepted) which you feel would be appropriate. Please ensure you have rights to all images you send us, as we will not be held liable for misuse of copyright.

Please also provide us with details of where you would like us to link to your website, along with any preferred anchor text, and a one-line author or company bio.

Where to send submissions:

Features and article pitches should all be sent to: content@ingeniousbritain.biz

You can also contact us via Twitter, Facebook, or even good old-fashioned snail mail: head over to the contact page for all other contact details.
