Why Write for Goalcast?
You will make a difference in people’s lives
Goalcast is a community dedicated to helping improve all aspects of our readers’ lives, and your work will contribute to fulfilling that mission. We provide practical advice, information, resources and the motivation to help our readers realize their full potential.
Find a huge audience for your work
Once your blog post is selected and published, we will work our social and distribution machine to make sure it gets the reach it deserves. Your work will be posted on our homepage (500,000 visitors per month) and promoted on our social networks, including Twitter, Google+ and Facebook, where we have more than 4 million followers and growing fast.
Promote your personal brand
Many of our contributors leverage their exposure on Goalcast to promote their personal brand and work, provided it is both relevant to our mission and done transparently. We allow you to write a quick bio about yourself that will appear below your article, where you can include a personal website link and as many social media handles as you like.
Contribute when you can
As a guest contributor, you’re the boss. You can contribute whenever you like, and there is no specific timeline for your articles.
Or become a regular contributor
Successful guest contributors will have the opportunity to get compensated for their work by becoming regular contributors. If after a few guest contributions (generally 3-5) we determine that you are a good match, then we will reach out to you with an invitation to join our team.
