News

For a press release to be successful it must include the who, what, why, where and when. For example, the who includes your company name, and spokesperson’s first name, last name and job title.

The what, is your product/service name and concise explanation of what it does or is. The where is where you are and where people can learn more about your product or service. The when is, for software, the general availability date. The why, is why your product/service solves a business problem and why it is special.

Third party endorsement quotes, whether it’s from satisfied customers, industry analysts or other respected sources -- helps strengthen your message and enhance your credibility. Remember to include a destination URL where people can find out more about your product and/or service offerings.

We choose to run news that we think will be the most interesting and helpful to our readers. If we need more clarification about your news we will contact you.

What we need from you
  1. All in one email, please send the Press release (in Word) - exclude claims such as; world’s leading, first and only
  2. Photos of spokesperson
    1- (280 pixels wide x 210 pixels high) LANDSCAPE, and
    2- (170 pixels wide x 210 pixels high) PORTRAIT in color or black and white, please label the photo using the convention Company_Lastname1.format (e.g. IBM_Smith1.jpg) for the 280 x 210 version and Company_Lastname2.format (e.g. IBM_Smith2.jpg) for the 170 x 210 version.

Once we have your company’s spokesperson’s photo in our system, we will not need it again. Please include with subsequent email submissions a note that the photos are on file. If you are not sure send the photos anyway.

You will receive an email from our product department once your news is scheduled, with a run date and time.



Features

If you have an idea for a feature, please send us a short proposal and we’ll let you know if we think it is something our reader’s what to know about. If you have an article that is already finished, send it for review and we’ll let you know if it interests us.

Feature articles must either teach the reader something that they can use in their job or take a thought leadership position in the space. Aim for 2500 words but, word count is secondary – it is far more important to tell a story that has a discernable beginning, middle and end. The author’s goal is to impress the reader that the breadth and depth of knowledge they possess on the topic is so significant that the reader feels compelled to contact the author or his company.

Feature articles are not advertisements. Feel free to briefly use your product/service to illustrate how and why the problem can be solved. Write in a conversational tone and communicate with the reader – do not preach to them. Confine your writing to what you know best.

You don’t have to be a professional writer to write a good piece. What you need is specialized knowledge that the reader finds valuable. Our editors will review your piece prior to publication and contact you for clarification – if needed.

Illustrations to accompany your article are welcomed and should be prepared for low resolution, Internet viewing. Width should not exceed 450 pixels.

Please provide the following:
  1. Article (in Word)
  2. Author Bio (in Word) A great author bio includes the author(s)’ major professional accomplishments and current job description
  3. Photos of the author
    1- (280 pixels wide x 210 pixels high) LANDSCAPE, and
    2- (170 pixels wide x 210 pixels high) PORTRAIT in color or black and white, please label the photo using the convention Company_Lastname1.format (e.g. IBM_Smith1.jpg) for the 280 x 210 version and Company_Lastname2.format (e.g. IBM_Smith2.jpg) for the 170 x 210 version.


Roundtable

We run many Roundtables that focus on each of the major topic areas we cover. Speak your mind and let your voice be heard on the most important issues of the day.

Submissions can range from 50 to 500 words. If you have more to say than what will fit into 500 words, you are really writing a Thought Leader feature (see Feature submission guidelines). What makes a great roundtable submission is answering the question with a laser focus and avoid digressing into ancillary concepts.

We need from you:
  1. Please provide your contribution and bio (in Word)
  2. Photos of contributor
    1- (280 pixels wide x 210 pixels high) LANDSCAPE, and
    2- (170 pixels wide x 210 pixels high) PORTRAIT in color or black and white, please label the photo using the convention Company_Lastname1.format (e.g. IBM_Smith1.jpg) for the 280 x 210 version and Company_Lastname2.format (e.g. IBM_Smith2.jpg) for the 170 x 210 version.
