Write for us
We’re looking for expert contributors to write well-informed, well-researched blogs for us so that our readers can make the most of their online presence, and better understand the digital world.
The UK Domain exists to provide an esteemed and reputable resource for individuals and small businesses that are looking to thrive, and our content acts as a public benefit to teach, inform, and inspire. It is a comprehensive hub that is built on the principle of sharing excellence, no matter how remotely based our readers or contributors are.
The content we review should meet the following criteria:
- Relevant to an audience of SMEs, freelancers, entrepreneurs, or their employees
- Interesting or informative
- Useful – practicable
If you have the wisdom and knowledge to help our readership flourish, and the ability to communicate it in writing, we want to hear from you.
What we're looking for
We’d like to work with you on producing high-quality content for our blog. This means that we will only accept original pieces not published elsewhere and no press releases. It also means that our editorial team will work with you on your piece including edits and revisions.
The UK Domain’s aim is to offer advice and be an inspiration for three main audiences: small businesses without a website yet or those looking for advice on growing their business; new start-ups or those with a business idea; and students or individuals looking to improve their career prospects by utilising an online presence.
The subjects we cover include: blogging, brand building, business growth, e-commerce, getting a job, personal branding, SEO, social media, retail, business and tech news, innovations, thought pieces, personal experience pieces, and technology.
There are three types of post we are looking for and we use a set pricing structure:
- Mini-articles (400-600 words) – £50
- Articles (600-1,500 words) – £100
- Features (1,500+ words) – £150
Alongside paying you for your contributions and publishing your content on The UK Domain (along with your bio and image – please note that all links will be no-followed), we’ll also share your post across our social media channels including Facebook and Twitter. By becoming part of our knowledge hub, you’ll be helping those looking for trustworthy and easy-to-understand advice on operating online.
How to submit
We are currently not accepting any unsolicited submissions.
Once we have accepted your idea submission you’re ready to get writing! Here are our guidelines when it comes to publishing content on our website.

Statistics/research: If you include any statistics, quotes or research in your post we ask that you include a link to where you sourced them from. Please also try to use up-to-date and recent research.
Language: While we understand that some subjects are more technical than others we avoid jargon and adopt a conversational tone. Please refrain from using offensive language and don’t include swear words in your post.
Post structure: All posts need to include a title, which should be snappy and capture attention, an introduction and conclusion. Where possible subheadings and examples should be used.
