Contribute to This Site

Our sites provide How-To advice and What I Learned experiences -- the type of guidance you'd get from an Expert Advisor.

If you have expertise to share with the world, you can contribute to one or more of our 100+ web sites, including ADVISOR.com, our many focused ADVISOR sites, and/or our BOOMERsphere.com sites.

  • Write how-to and "insider advice" articles and tips.
  • Share your expertise in a blog.
  • Guide and moderate a forum.

Even if you've never done it before, if you have solid knowledge that can help other people, you have professional and personal experience to support your advice, and you have a reasonable ability to organize and present your knowledge, we'll help you share it with the world.

CAUTION: If you write to us about submitting content, and you do NOT provide what we request (below) in your FIRST CONTACT, you will be ignored. If you fail to comply twice, you will be blocked and/or banned as a spammer or robot.

Use this link to contact an editor: Contact Us.

REQUIRED IN YOUR FIRST CONTACT:
1. Describe in detail what you want to contribute
2. Describe your expertise on the topic -- professional credentials, related career history, education, writing experience, and similar evidence that you can provide expert advice and know-how.
3. Provide your complete information, including your business name (if any), web site (if any), street address, email, and telephone number.

We only work with real people. If you do not provide this information in your first contact, the editors will not respond. We get many fake queries from spammers and robots and phony services hired to do "SEO" and get links. That won't worth with us and will usually result in blocking.

DO NOT SUBMIT: self-promoting infomercials, advertorials, press releases, product or service reviews, or other superficial information intended to promote a business or link or product.

NO AGENTS: We work only with principals, not agents, assistants, promotional services, ghost writers, PR services, SEOs or anyone who is not the actual expert on the topic.

Writing:

Share your expertise and you'll gain personal pleasure and professional prestige. Just submit an article or tip that the editors deem worthwhile to publish.

PRODUCT & SERVICE REVIEWS

We review products and services that we believe will interest visitors to our 100+ web sites. Reviews are done by our editorial team, who has been evaluating and writing major reviews for decades. We do not accept external reviews because we can't verify their authenticity and objectivity.

Our reviews have ranged from software utilities to motor homes, theme parks to tools, music to movies, IT hardware to business software, personal products to professional services, concerts, trips, experiences, and more. If we believe a new product or service or offering might be desired by our visitors, we'll consider writing about it.

To offer our editors a product or service for review, submit complete information using the submission form at Contact Us. Do not send email, because spam filtering may cause any commercial email messages to be rejected and the sender blocked permanently. Do not send press releases except in support of a specific proposed product/service review.
