Partnership & Advertising

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

*Before submitting a pitch to us, make sure you’ve checked our site to confirm that we haven’t already covered it already. For the best shot at getting your pitch accepted, always ensure that it’s in line with the type of content we cover and relevant to our audience.

 

CONTENT GUIDELINES

 

  • Word Count: 800-2,000 words (depending on the nature of the article)
  • Include one featured image and one image for every paragraph or list item.
  • All images should be in landscape format, at least 900 px wide, and high resolution.
  • It’s highly encouraged that you use original photos, but we accept royalty-free photos and photos that require attribution.
  • If the photos require attribution, make sure to send the appropriate attribution for each image in your submission email.
  • Headings: Make use of headings and subheadings in your article to clearly separate and categorize each section.
  • Style: The only styles we don’t accept are dry, informational tone of voice and crass language. Write with some personality, and you’ll be golden.
  • Information: All information provided in your article should be triple checked for accuracy; we do not want to provide misinformation!

 

WHAT WE’RE NOT LOOKING FOR

 

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT

If you’re writing to promote a company or brand, this would fall under the advertising category instead of guest editorial content. Therefore, if you’re writing seems to be overly promotional, we’ll point you to our paid opportunities or encourage you to edit your piece. If this is what you’re interested in, please reach out to us at [email protected]

This rule also applies if you’ve received compensation in any form (money, product, services, etc.) of the business or brand you’re featuring in your article, which we require you to inform us about if this is the case.

*Keep in mind that we reserve the right to choose not to publish your content if we cannot agree on this.

 

ADULT CONTENT

We like to keep things pretty wholesome at Scooter Daily, only publishing content that’s appropriate for our reader of all ages. That being said, we don’t accept adult content, which includes anything from articles endorsing things like gambling, heavy drinking, sexual content, etc.

Note: articles featuring lists of cool and unique bars are acceptable so long as their focus is on the bar(s)’s skilled craftsmanship or interesting beverages as opposed to a focus on the activity of drinking itself.

STRICTLY PERSONAL NARRATIVES

Don’t get us wrong: we’re not at all against personal narratives–in fact, we love them! We simply don’t accept strictly personal narratives because they aren’t in line with our goal (to impart knowledge to our readers that will help them on their journeys).

That being said, we highly encourage you to write in your unique writing voice and to show some personality, and you can even include your personal experiences as a part of your articles! Just make sure that the meat of your article is informational and inspiring so that our readers will be better off on their travels than they would have before reading it.

 

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED ARTICLES

We are only accepting completely original articles that have never been published anywhere else. Make sure to keep that in mind or you won’t have much success reaching out!

 

HOW TO SUBMIT A PITCH TO SCOOTER DAILY

Send your pitch to [email protected] with two to three topic ideas, the approximate word count for each one, and two examples of your previously published work. Whether we accept your pitch or not, we will get back to you so that you don’t have to wait anxiously (at least not forever, anyway!).

 

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR ARTICLE

When your article is ready for submission, send it as a Word Document to [email protected], along the images to use with the article and your author bio.

Once we’ve approved the piece and are ready to schedule it to be published, we’ll send you an invitation to become a contributor to Scooter Daily, so that we can properly credit you as the author. We use Gravatar to display author photos and bios, so we’ll need to invite you using your email address associated with your Gravatar profile. If you don’t have one, make sure to sign up for one and to add your photo there.

*Make sure you have done a thorough edit of your piece before submitting it as we will not publish articles that are full of errors.
