So, you’d like to write for Global Payroll? Whether you’re an experienced writer or just getting started, we can use your knowledge and expertise and will work with you to create an article fit for publication.
If you’re ready to get involved as a Global Payroll contributing writer, the following guidelines will help you throughout the publication process.
- Use experiences from your professional life to create a newsworthy article—a challenge you have met, a software implementation, or a process that saves time and money.
- Show readers, through specific examples, how to apply your insights to their situations. A case study is only valuable to readers when you focus on providing how-to insights rather than merely describing the chronology of events.
- Double-check the accuracy of your article. Verify every fact, date, and figure.
- Write as you would speak. If you need a technical term for accuracy and clarity, explain it in layman’s terms. Jargon and acronyms also warrant two words of caution: Assume nothing. Explain the jargon; spell out the acronym.
- Begin to write freely and don’t attempt perfection on the first draft. Simply get all of your thoughts down. Use subheads to help break up your thoughts and transition the reader from one thought to another.
- When it comes to story length, the general rule is to write as much as it will take to tell readers what they need to know. Most Global Payroll feature articles range from 1,000-2,000 words. In most cases, shorter is better.
