A Call for Bloggers and Writers!
Just Beer gathers and organizes beer-exclusive topics in an effective way for community members to immerse themselves in beer content and culture from around the world. This is your opportunity to be part of this incredible community of writers and beer enthusiasts.
By The Beer Community on Feb. 08, 2018
What do we want?
We are looking for people who are excited about all things beer to write about what they know. Whether you’re already a published writer, have your own blog or you’re just getting started and need a reputable platform, we want to read your original stories.
What does this mean?
How do you get started?
The most efficient way to get published is to sign up for your very own JustBeer account. IT’S FREE and there are NO ANNOYING POP UPS OR ADS. Create your personal profile with your contact information and a great pic of yourself. Then look for the “More” drop down on the upper right corner of the page and click on “Write a Post.” Write your piece directly into Word Press on the site. Our content moderator will make any necessary edits for clarity, tone or style. When your article is published, we’ll contact you. Although we may not need to because you might see it all over social media!
Why should you participate?
Voice is power, but reach often costs money. We know it can be difficult to either make a name for yourself or get traffic to your website, so we’re offering you a free method to grow your reach beyond Google and paid ads. Plus, we’re giving you the ability to eliminate the bigger fish that overpower your website on search rankings. In short – sharing your content on JustBeer allows you to leverage more impressions to your site and augment your current marketing efforts at NO COST TO YOU.
What’s the catch?
We’re here to include you into the JustBeer community – that’s the only catch. We benefit from using your content because it enriches our community. We believe that building a community and connecting people to their passion is important for the sustainment of an industry; your passion is writing; our audience is passionate about beer. It just makes sense to connect everyone together.
By the way, JustBeer does not run google ads or pay-per-click campaigns;
so no, we’re not using your articles to generate display-ad revenue for us!
What posts can you contribute?
Anything to do with beer. We have broken the articles down into:
Industry News – What’s new in the Beer Industry? New offerings, new breweries, takeovers, contests, job postings and the like. If you’ve got the inside track or a fresh perspective on what’s going on, we want to know.
JBU – JustBeer University; the academics of beer from Beer 101 to advanced topics.
Recipes – Everything from homebrew advice to beer cocktails to great eats.
Pub Talk – A catch-all category for short, easy-to-read articles.
Local or International? – Both! We’ve added geotagging to the posts to give you greater control over where your content is seen. If you write a post about how to drink beer, there’s no reason that should be limited to a specific area. Let the entire Beer Community benefit from it! If you write a review about a local pub or brewery, you can make sure Beer Enthusiasts in your area see it, so they can go check it out. Our goal is to make Just Beer a truly local experience with international possibilities.
How do we know this works? – We’ve done it already on Just Wine, JustBeer’s sister site. In its first year, JustWine achieved a social following of over 29,000 members, over ¼ million downloads, and well-over 1 million impressions. We’ve been building the beer community for three years now with the same successful model as our wine community.
What if I don’t get published?
It could be a matter of timing. The timeline for content review is dependent on the current volume of submissions. We might have your piece in mind for a post later in the year so we’ve put it on the back burner for a while. It could be the piece needs major editing. Whatever the case, if for any reason your content doesn’t fit our submission guidelines, we’ll let you know.
Still reading? We’re glad you’re with us! We look forward to seeing what you have to share on JustBeer.
