ITBusiness.ca is an award-winning, online-only publication that covers Canada’s technology scene for small to medium-sized businesses. Whether its an entrepreneur with a disruptive new Internet business or a small enterprise looking for information on how to deploy network infrastructure, we deliver the news, advice, and content to help business gain advantage through technology. Now we are inviting the community we cover to join us in our efforts. We’re looking for community bloggers that can offer unique insights and expertise relating to Canadian technology news and current affairs. Do you want to help your peers succeed and enjoy a well-read platform to raise your profile at the same time? Read below for more details.
We’ve been covering Canada’s IT industry for more than a decade and have been recognized by the Canadian Online Publishing Awards, the Kenneth R. Wilson Awards, and referenced by other mainstream media sources for our original coverage. As part of the country’s largest IT-specific, business-to-business publishing company, we cater to an audience of hundreds of thousands each month. We engage our audience across multiple channels including Web, e-mail newsletter, social, and digital publications. Our mandate is to cover startups creating technology and the small to medium-sized businesses that use technology.
Being a Community Blogger
As a community blogger, you’ll work with the ITBusiness.ca editorial staff to develop story ideas and deliver them on schedule. You’ll use our WordPress content management system to prepare your articles for posting to the site. Community bloggers will have a specific focus area based on their experience and expertise to serve as a base to develop story ideas around. We are also open to, and encourage, different formats of story telling – rather than write an article if you think the best way to get the story across is to put together a photo slideshow, produce a video, or make an interactive Web feature, our editorial team will work with you to make it happen.
Typical post length is about 500 words and posts should always include an image. Community bloggers can arrange to post as often as they feel able, but are asked to commit to at least two posts per month.
What you get: an elevated profile on our well-read online platform, access to our network of experts and executives, free admission to industry events as media, and other perks and opportunities as they develop.
We are currently looking for bloggers able to focus on line of business areas such as:
- IT Administration
- Executive Operations
- Sales and Marketing
- Human Resources
- Managing Business
