Want to write for Firmology? You’ve come to the right place. Firmology is growing fast and we’re looking for contributors who have something interesting to say about small business technology and innovation.
We’re looking for small business owners, tech entrepreneurs, freelancers, makers, business professionals, technology industry professionals, tech enthusiasts and innovators who are passionate about their views and want to share insight with one another.
Small Business Owners & Professionals
It all revolves around you, the small business owner or professional. Without you in mind, we wouldn’t have launched Firmology. We know the struggles and personal sacrifices you make on a daily basis running your own business and we want to make it easier. Learning from one another is the best way to shorten the path to success, so let’s hear your stories, case studies or experiences.
Are you in the small business technology space? Do you have some insight or trends to share on emerging mobile payment platforms, the long-term viability of the daily deals industry, Social CRM or any other small business tech-related subject?
You know who you are. The technology enthusiast. While everyone knows someone that spends all their free time watching sports, they also know someone like you who spends all their free time reading up on the latest startups, technology trends, new products and feature releases. When someone mentions a problem they have running their business or managing a project, you always seem to know what web app, mobile app or service might come in handy.
The former accountant who launched a successful t-shirt company using social media, the nerdy MBA students who disrupted eye-wear industry, and the twin brothers who created performance-enhancing basketball sneakers that were banned by the NBA. Yes, we write about small business tech, but we also write about small business innovation. You’ve created an innovative product, innovative business model or disrupted an old industry.
We don’t want anyone to write for the site if they don’t feel like writing. We want people who just can’t help voice their thoughts, the people who write 5 paragraph comments with ease, hang out in discussion forums, call in to radio shows, send articles of interest to one another and spend hours in a fiery debate on business news, trends and insights with fellow small business owners and colleagues.
You always have an opinion backed by experience, strong reasoning and analysis, whether you end up right or wrong. If you’re wrong, you admit it and brush it off as you move build your case on your next opinion.
Are you wise beyond your years? Did you go through a learning experience, good or bad, that you’d like to share with others, so that they don’t have to make the same mistakes or reinvent the wheel? Do you have some useful tips and tricks?
You have a unique perspective that may cause a healthy debate to ensue, perhaps even spark a bit of controversy. Bring it on! As long as your opinion, news or story isn’t against the law in most countries, we’d love to hear it.
As interesting news breaks, we’ll seek your opinion and analysis. What do you think of Facebook’s latest feature for small businesses? How will small businesses be affected by Amazon’s same day shipping product? Have your thoughts written and ready to go. Extra points if you proactively send us your breakdown of a news item or topic before we even have a chance to ask.
For small business tech, that includes the online world of web apps, mobile app, social media, online marketing and services as well as the offline world of hardware and gadgets.
For small business innovation, we’re open to hearing about anything and everything, whether a business strategy, product or company.

Firmology is a fast growing site that’s only a few years old! There’s nothing but upside as we buckle down and continue to build out our site. We have a lot of topics that we’d like to cover, so get in early and build out your topic of expertise.
Firmology is constantly looking for opportunities to promote its writers to as many small business owners, entrepreneurs and business professionals as possible. All Firmology content is made available through Google News, appearing instantly within the first page of search results for hot topics, people and keywords.
Network and build relationships with small business owners, business professionals, startup entrepreneurs, tech industry professionals, innovators and fellow contributors. You never know who you’ll meet and the opportunities that will come your way.
Join a community of contributors who have unique, and many times, opposite views from one another. The community provides a robust launch pad for every post and writer through insight and different perspectives.
Continue to build out your professional authority through name recognition, visibility and web presence. We provide each contributing writer with an author profile that includes a profile picture, bio, company link and social media profiles. Regular contributors will also be featured within the writer directory.
As any astute business professional will tell you, growth, networking, community and professional authority lead to one thing: business opportunities. This site doesn’t feature Internet memes like the hippie who hallucinated double rainbows across the sky.

That’s our vision and we’re looking for those that want to be a part of it as a regular contributor. If it’s only for a guest post, that’s fantastic too! Are you ready to apply and join the fast growing community of Firmology contributors?
