We invite your input and involvement in the World Trade Daily Community! As they say, “it takes a village”. We “launched” the WTD site May 1, 2011. It is our intention to provide fresh posts on a daily basis 365.25 days per year. Ideally, we will publish 1,000 posts annually by 2012.
Our goal is to develop a stable of 20 to 50 featured authors who would each contribute 1 to 4 posts per month, representing various facets of the WTD community; data users, suppliers, educators, consultants, practitioners, students, analysts, etc.
What’s in it for you?
Becoming a WTD Author offers you:
1. Increased visibility within the WTD Community and beyond including readers, other authors, suppliers, advertisers as well as your own social network.
2. An opportunity to “gently” promote your services and products.
3. Expanded network: we will be publishing each and every post via a plethora of social media sources… as well as attracting many visitors through our open source data repository and free analytical interface.
4. An opportunity to contribute your experience and insight to the world trade community; to “give something back”.
5. Possible eligibility to receive up to 70% off designated software applications and professional services. Please check out the range of our products and services.
6. Education: you’ll learn even more by sharing your thoughts. The best education is teaching. You will certainly benefit by the experience.
Your contribution is important even if you decide only to write 1 or 2 Posts a year. Check the WTD site for the areas of your knowledge and expertise and simply write something up and send it to us.
What are general posting guidelines?
- Blogs should be pertinent to the WTD community and fall within the topical areas listed. However, you are free to suggest others topics.
- They should be informative, interesting and generally non-commercial in nature. Some tasteful self promotion is fine though.
- They are usually between 300 to 500 words in length, include a picture and can be listed in a maximum of 3 categories.
- They should be professional, yet include a personal flavor. “Business casual” is the called for attire.
You’ll feel good about your contribution as an author.
