Guest Post Submissions

VentureBeat regularly publishes guest posts from experts who can provide unique and useful perspectives to our readers on news, trends, emerging technologies, and other areas of interest related to tech innovation.

To submit a guest post, please send it to the appropriate channel:

Bots, messaging and A.I.-related posts Bots.oped@venturebeat.com

Games, AR/VR and Esports-related posts Games.oped@venturebeat.com

Posts relating to all other topics VentureBeat covers OpEd@venturebeat.com

We’ll respond as quickly as we can to your email, but due to time constraints, we aren’t always able to provide feedback on rejected stories. We get a lot of submissions, and we publish only the best.

Here are our guidelines:

  1. Guest columns usually run about 800 words.
  2. Make a strong, clear argument supported by examples, details, and/or data.
  3. Avoid long introductions; get straight to the point.
  4. Be sure to include a headline.
  5. Be sure to include an author bio, including details on your background and expertise that make it clear why your opinion on the topic should count to readers.
  6. If you’re not the author, be sure to tell us what organization you work for and spell out your relationship to the author.
  7. Be sure to let us know if the story has been published or submitted elsewhere.
  8. Be sure to disclose conflicts of interest, such as partnerships with, or investments in, any companies/technologies covered in the story.
  9. It’s great to include images to illustrate key points in your story. But please only include images that you have rights to or that are available under creative commons license. Be sure to include image credits and links.
  10. If you’d like to pitch an idea rather than a full draft, please send a 1-3 paragraph summary of the key points the story would cover.

Vendor-Sponsored Posts

If you’re with a company looking to write about a problem for which your company offers a solution or about any area in which you have a vested interest, your story would qualify as a sponsored post rather than a guest post. To speak to VentureBeat about sponsored post opportunities, please contact sales@venturebeat.com.
