We firmly believe the best way to get better is to get better together. That’s why we’re invested in bringing unique voices to AssociationSuccess.org’s blog and virtual workshops.
Wondering how you can get involved with us? A great first step is to read our About page, which explains what we do and why we do it. Then, check out our tips below:
How to pitch a blog post idea
Our blog is dedicated to drawing connections between the association industry and the worlds of business, innovation and entrepreneurship. That’s why we look for ideas that challenge the status quo, offer actionable how-to guides, or suggest concepts that might be a little out of the box or offer a new take on an old problem.
Here are some recent favorites that we think exemplify these concepts:
- 3 things Popeyes’ Chicken can teach you about branding
- Bold idea? This association got rid of its annual conference
- How do you price a virtual event?
- How the Romance Writers of America responded to racism accusations — and how you can learn from them
- Why you should tell your friends how much you make
Send an email with “PITCH” in the subject line to [email protected] with your pitch, which should include potential sources and a clear vision for how your idea can influence or tie to the association industry specifically. Rates are 25 cents per word, and blogs generally run from 400 to 800 words.
How to pitch a workshop idea
We love partnering with subject matter experts and thought leaders to develop ideas for our virtual workshops, which are excellent ways to grow your reach. See our events page for recent workshops we’ve held and the types of workshops that work well. We generally look for workshops to be 30 minutes or 60 minutes in length, and our goal is that all workshops offer:
- Actionable takeaways
- A unique approach or discussion about an issue facing the association industry right now
- A presentation or panel discussion that spurs conversation during the workshop and later
