DIYMarketers’ mission is to “Simplify Marketing” – our goal is to help small business owners “make sense of marketing”.  Things that you (as an expert) take for granted are often confusing to our audience.  So, content that explains your area of expertise and breaks it down into actionable details does best.


Think of DIYMarketers as a cross between “Consumer Reports” and “Real Simple Magazine” We are a go-to publication for small business owners who are cash strapped, time strapped and just want the short skippy on where to go and what to do.

  • Email: Please use the best email to connect with you - or an email linked to your Gravatar
  • SHORT bio: About 2-3 sentences about yourself.  If you're stuck, answer the question "Why should I listen to you"

For example:

  • 10 best marketing books - you provide a list of 10 marketing books with links to each book's Amazon page
  • 7 Reasons you need to use influencer marketing -- provide 7 reasons with links to research or credible content for each reason.
  • What 10 email experts said you should do for the holidays -- again - find what 10 experts said and link to those articles.

ARTICLE QUALITY GUIDELINES
