Contributor Guidelines

New Bike Finder is quickly becoming the go-to resource for people trying to figure out which bike to buy next.  However, we are always looking for a way to make the site better.

So, if you’re an expert in the bike industry, who loves to write, and who would love to share your knowledge with the rest of the world, consider being a contributing author. We are currently looking for people to cover different topics related to purchasing new bikes. If you’d like to be a contributor to the New Bike Finder Community, please fill out the application form below.

 Guidelines

 Pay: $10 (and up!) per accepted article

New Bike Finder requests that contributed articles be the original work of the author and remain exclusive to our site for five business days, after which time you may reprinted in part or full on other sites, with a link back to the original article on NewBikeFinder.com.  You may, at any time, share you article on Social Media with a link to the original article on NewBikeFinder.com.  Before acceptance, all articles will be checked for originality.

When writing, your focus should be on educating your target audience.  This means you should not be discussing Boost spacing for a brand new mountain biker, but an article on Boost hubs need not explain the function of an axle.  Target word count is 1,000-2,500 words.


Keys to good content:

  • Use Subheadings and keywords
  • Provide enough detail for the topic, but not too much
  • Be original
  • Provide high quality photos and/or videos
  • Use Bullet Points

We, at New Bike Finder, may edit for grammar or style, but content will remain original to the author.  If we think a submitted article is worthwhile, but requires content edits we may return to the author requesting revision.  Poorly written posts will not be accepted.

Article Title ideas:

  • Five reasons to ride an Aero Road bike
  • Trail Bike or Enduro?
  • Why should I get disc brakes for my next road bike?
  • Which bike is best for commuters?
  • Three things to look for in your next gravel bike
  • How to pick the right size mountain bike

Linking to reputable sources is acceptable, but if you include affiliate links or links to questionable sources your article will be discarded.  Bylines and/or Bios are acceptable, but not required.  If you have any other questions, please submit them via our Contact Us page.

If you have submitted an article and have not heard from us in three weeks, it means we are not interested.  We can only provide feedback time permitting.
