Write for the Site
Calling all Saxerati!
BestSaxophoneWebsiteEver.com wants YOU! And not in a creepy way either.
You see, our goal here is to provide saxophone players and enthusiasts with the best content out there. And to do that we need your help.
If you’re a devoted sax player, saxophone web site owner, music educator, music journalist, rabid fan of the saxophone, or all of the above, we’d love to have you contribute to the site, since the more content and viewpoints we get on the blog, the more we can educate, inspire, and uplift the saxophone universe.
All new age giddiness aside, you’d probably like to know…
What’s in it for Me?
A triple of things:
Posting on this site is a great way to establish your authority in the industry, as we’re getting over 21,000 unique visitors (as of May 2013) a month – and that number has been getting higher and higher. So there will be plenty of eyeballs on your articles – which means more and more eyeballs on YOU, of course.
Every blog post you write will include a feature box at the bottom of the article with a brief promotional blurb with links to whatever you’d like to promote. To see an example of this feature box, check out the box at the bottom of this article here.
As long as you’re promoting products that you stand behind 100% as also being awesome for our readers, or at the very least are providing your honest opinion about those products, feel free to use your own affiliate links within your blog posts (click to the bottom of this page to learn what affiliate links are). Since the traffic on the site is steadily improving, you stand to have another source of revenue. Of course, at this stage in the game, I can’t promise anything, but on the other hand there are folks out there who make quite a bit of money this way each month. Why NOT us?
Have Fun, Meet Cool People
Along with playing and making music, blogging is one of the funnest (that’s right, I said funnest) activities in my life. Through blogs and online networking, I’ve met amazing people and even scored some paying gigs doing all sorts of cool stuff. Becoming a leading voice in a cool online community like we’re building here comes with the strong prospect of amazing connections and mucho laughs as we all geek out together on all things saxomaphone.
So if you meet the criteria listed above and this sounds interesting to you, please do get in touch with any questions, comments, concerns, and whatnot.
* For those of you unfamiliar with affiliate programs, they’re basically arrangements where a vendor (in our case, Sam Ash, Musician’s Friend, Amazon.com, etc) signs you up and gives you links to their products. They track every time that someone clicks on your link to purchase a product, and for each click that leads to a purchase, you take a cut. That cut is usually anywhere between 4% all the way up to the very occasional 75%, but it really depends on the vendor and the product. So basically, as long as your links are out there where the world can see them, then you’re potentially making money while you sleep.
