Anyone with passion and expertise about innovative and inspiring New Zealand businesses or business people! We welcome contributions from seasoned veterans to eager first-timers. We are here to guide you every step of the way, making NZBio.org a fantastic platform to launch your writing career.
What Kind of Articles Do We Publish?
We publish content by and for those living and breathing NZ businesses with at least 800 words. This includes:
Tutorials: Help others get started with a new technology or walk them through a specific project.
Insights & Opinions: Do you have a well-researched perspective on a hot topic in the field? Share your insights and spark conversations!
Deep Dives: Craft comprehensive guides that become go-to resources for specific subjects.
Case Studies: Distill practical lessons and valuable takeaways from your projects, focusing on real-world examples, not just stories.
What We Don't Publish:
Ghostwriting: We work directly with individual authors. Pieces submitted on behalf of companies or anonymous team members will be promptly rejected. Encourage your CEO to join the fun by submitting their pitch!
Marketing Masquerades: We appreciate your company and its products, but articles packed with self-promotion or product walkthroughs won't make the cut. Focus on sharing knowledge, not selling.
Listicles & Reviews: While these formats have their place, they're not a good fit for our audience.
Sponsored Content: While we offer sponsored post options for companies looking to boost visibility while supporting great content, this isn't an avenue for blatant advertising. Think collaborative content creation, like a company sponsoring a series of in-depth articles on a specific topic.
Who Are We Publishing For?
The NZBio.org audience is made up of dedicated NZ business professionals, including researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, and anyone involved in advancing business in Aotearoa. When writing, assume your reader is a knowledgeable but open-minded peer. Beginner-friendly content is welcome (we all start somewhere!), but aim for a foundation of familiarity with core business concepts.
Practical advice grounded in real experience and well-supported opinions are what we aim for.
Check out our writing and style guide for more tips on tailoring your content to our audience.
Every article published on NZBio.org must adhere to specific criteria outlined in our Publishing Policy.
What We Expect From You:
Originality: Your article should be a fresh contribution to NZBio.org, not something you've published elsewhere.
Collaboration: Work closely with us and embrace our constructive feedback.
Deadline Adherence: Agree on a timeline for delivery, and communicate promptly if you anticipate any delays.
Policy Compliance: Familiarise yourself with our publishing policy, especially if your article relates to work with your own products. Don't hesitate to ask us if anything is unclear.
What You Get From NZBio.org:

Promotion & Distribution: We'll actively promote your article across our network, including social media, to amplify your voice and reach a wider audience.
We encourage you to start with a well-structured outline rather than a complete article. This allows us to refine your idea and ensure it aligns with our needs.

Target Audience: Who will benefit most from your article? What level of experience do they have?
