WOULD YOU LIKE TO WRITE FOR EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE PLANT? GOOD DECISION!
Our vision is to become the go-to resource for anyone working in the cannabis sector. We intend to deliver best-in-class education on topics like how to cultivate cannabis (and a cannabis business), how to start a cannabis business, and how to flourish in this industry.
You’ll be a good fit if you enjoy writing about those topics.
In exchange, you’ll have access to our cannabis business audience as well as a backlink. Aside from that, there’s the satisfaction of a job well done.
The following is the procedure for writing for us:
Please read the following guidelines. It’s crucial. Also, familiarise yourself with the content and design of our site (link here).
Fill out the form below to tell us a little about yourself and your ideas for articles. (If you don’t have a concept for an article, we can help you come up with one.) We have a significant backlog of stuff to publish. If that’s the case, mention it.) After reviewing your work, our editor will contact you to discuss the next steps.
Our guidelines are as follows:
1. Demonstrate empathy
2. Be of assistance
3. Be unpretentious
4. Make data-driven decisions.
5. Pay attention to detail.
6. Be unique
7. Engage your audience.
The first rule is to be empathic.
Confusion, excitement, naivety, and potential abound in the cannabis market. We are stewards of trust and information, and we must recognise that our readers come to us seeking direction.
As a result, the first rule is to put oneself in their shoes. What information would be beneficial? What kind of tone would you prefer? What kind of images might help them grasp the concept more easily?
It’s easy to forget or miss these stuff if you’ve been in the field for a while, but clarity, empathy, and a little bit of understanding go a long way toward writing a better article.
Rule number two is to be useful.
Utility is at the heart of our content strategy. The reader should leave their job more productive than when they arrived.
While thought pieces are fascinating, we must always question ourselves, “So what?”
In reality, when writing an article or expressing a point, a good conceptual framework to follow is:
– What do you mean?
– So, what do you think?
– So, what’s next?
Basically, let’s make the reader’s life easier. Provide tools, suggestions, methods, and tactics while avoiding exposition and irrational rants.
While these blogs are fun, they are primarily intended to be informative and valuable to the readers.
The third rule is to be data-driven.
Misleading headlines, PR fluff, and opinionated crap abound throughout the globe. The problem is that there are a lot of great writers that promote false information owing to a lack of investigation. They write convincingly yet do little to help the world.
Here, we conduct research.
When it comes to empirical claims (especially when it comes to laws or recommendations), the rule of thumb is to check all viewpoints. Everything should be backed up with evidence and study.
Rule #4: Take it easy.
Despite our respect for and reliance on science and data, neither we nor our audience are scientists (for the most part). Write as if you’re speaking to a close friend. Someone you care for and with whom you feel at ease. Someone you admire, yet who isn’t hesitant to make a joke now and again.
The fifth rule is to be comprehensive.
If you make a point, make it clear. The reader should not be left perplexed. By the end of the post, everything should be clear, and the reader should be able to put what we’ve discussed into practise.
If you are unable to completely explain a concept, provide a link to a resource that can.
Choosing thoroughness over brevity is a good rule of thumb. We want to be helpful and clear, but we also want to make sure that the message is received correctly. We appreciate long form, so don’t feel obligated to finish in 800 words; you have plenty of room to breathe and completely explore your ideas here.
Rule #6: Be unique.
Plagiarism is not acceptable; this is self-evident.
However, avoid pitching “me-too-content.” How can we stand out if we’re just rehashing the same rubbish that every other blogger is writing about? What role do we play?
We don’t want to be a distraction. We’d like to be the lighthouse.
Be unique in your approach. It’s more enjoyable. It is more efficient.
Rule #7: Engage your audience.
Use your words and imagery carefully to lure readers into an exciting and engaging narrative. We’re storytellers writing to an audience of interesting and smart individuals (who are busy). People should be captivated to each and every succeeding sentence rather than skimming or bouncing. Create content that is both practical and artistic.
