Becoming a Contributor for The Social Media Hat

If you, too, would like to become a contributor for The Social Media Hat, please do not simply complete a contact form or send an email. The Social Media Hat is not currently accepting guest contributions unless the author is an established expert in their field and has a relationship with the owner of The Social Media Hat, Mike Allton.

Therefore, if you want to be a contributor, you'll need to connect with Mike on social media and demonstrate your expertise. (If you're already friends with Mike, simply message him and he'll be glad to chat with you about a piece.)

We do appreciate your interest in contributing, and recognize that you're seeing this because you found a piece or author that was a previous contribution. Unfortunately, reading, replying to, and managing the volume of contributions which were previously submitted when it was acceptable became too overwhelming. The Social Media Hat is not a place for link-building, yet that was clearly the purpose for most of the submissions.

Again, if that's not what you're looking for, it is still possible to guest post to The Social Media Hat - just make sure that you connect with Mike and form a relationship before asking.
