What style should my content be?
We say, remember that reading PROFILE Magazine should be a positive, uplifting experience for readers. We want them to come away feeling inspired to live their best life. The content should also be positive, full of takeaway tips and be fresh.
Who are the target audience?
Our readers are savvy females, aged (in particular) 30 – 50 years, often own their own business, many are mothers and most of all they desire to live their best life. They are looking for enrichment, mind and body nourishment, information, relaxation and inspiration.
How can I write for best SEO?
Where possible, have an engaging title that tells exactly what your article is about and reflect back those words throughout your content. Think about what it is our female readers would be searching for on the internet. To ensure your content is picked up by SEO, we may amend your title and edit your article a little. ‘How to …’ or ‘Top tips …’ ‘The best…’ are great starting points.
How should I construct my article?
Your content is best written in short, to the point sections and where possible, your ‘top 5 tips’ (as an example). Our readers are on the go and want great content in small, delectable bite-sized chunks.
Can I promote an offer or my services in the content?
The short answer is no. The long answer is that your content is designed to showcase you as an expert in your field, it is where you engage with our readers and build trust, we include your name and business name so that readers can search for you online if they wish to know more.
I can’t see my article on the Home Page. Where will I find it?
You will always find your article by searching the sidebar CATEGORIES or the top menu – simply look for your relevant category (e.g. Grace) and you will find your article in that section.
Am I able to supply a featured image to go with the content?
Absolutely but you must own and/or have permission/copyright to use any image you supply. However there is no guarantee we will use it as we want your content to reflect the look and feel of the site. The more your content looks part of our brand and site the better for you!
