  • Typically our articles run from 700 to 1000 words, but we are flexible on going over this word limit if it makes sense to cover a certain topic.
  • We only publish 100% original articles, so all content needs to be previously unpublished.
  • We offer editing support in-house, so there is no pressure for the first draft to arrive perfectly polished and ready to publish right away. We will also do our best to give you final approval of the article before it is published with any edits we may make.
  • We also will include a short author bio (+/-80 words) and photo to give a bit more visibility, and let our community know a bit more about the source of this great article. We will include links to social profiles and the company that the author works with as well as any books or blogs that you’d wish to promote.
  • Feel free to share the link to the article on TradeReady as soon as it’s published, on social media or anywhere else as long as it links back to the original post on We’ll be sharing it on all of our social accounts. We will tag and mention the author and organization wherever possible.
