The people who write for System Trader Success are live within the world of quantitative trading, systematic trading or automated trading. They are passionate about their topic and wish to help others become successful system traders. If you operate your own online business, or you’re an ambitious digital publisher, you’re what we’re looking for. If you live and breathe trading, build trading systems, create killer articles, or you have your own industry blog, we want your insight.
In other words, we’re looking for contributors who are constantly seeking out new ways to market their business online, but also happen to love teaching like-minded folks. What we’re not looking for: Freelance writers with amazing writing skills, but no real insight into successful system trading.
The following topics are what we are looking for:
In addition to your tips and advice, we encourage you to share your personal anecdotes, experiences, and stories. For example, if a certain experience with a client taught you something that changed the way you think about the entire business, that’s something our community will relate to.
Our desired content level on System Trader Success is anywhere from Beginner to Intermediate. Perhaps the best word is “approachable”. Focus on keeping your content entertaining, informative, and succinct.
We encourage you to break down complex ideas, give step-by-step instructions, and tell stories that help illustrate your ideas. Be interesting.
The only ironclad rule we can give you is that your content must be 100% up-to-date. Things change fast in the trading world.
Our target word count is exactly how many words it takes to get your point across in a blog post — no more, no less. We are looking for posts that give value to our readers. Share what you know, cover new ground, tell readers what you’ve discovered… and run spell check for heaven sakes.
When it comes to your writing style, remember to keep it conversational. Breakdown your ideas into jargon-free, easy-to-read sentences that any beginner level reader can engage with. Remember that this is a blog, so the better users can understand it, the more they’ll appreciate your content.
System Trader Success is a great place to build your personal brand. In fact, it’s all about you — the community of system trader experts who are constantly innovating and always willing to share your resources. Each day, we’re telling the story of this community, which both our readers and contributors are a part of.
As a contributor, we want to help you tell your story. We’ll provide you with an opportunity to link back to your site in each article and our social team will make you feel like an online marketing celebrity.
However, we do require helpful, informative content… not sales copy. We want to sell YOU, the trading genius, on System Trader Success… not your products and services.
In addition to linking to your website in your author bio, you’ll be plugging into the hyperactive community of system traders that visit the site each day looking for fresh, useful content.
All System Trader Success content will get one last check through by our managing editor to check for grammar, punctuation, etc. If there are any issues that need to be resolved, we’ll contact you via email. Think you’ve got the chops to become a System Trader Success guest contributor?
