Are you someone who is passionate and knowledgeable about medical cannabis, and especially CBD? A medical professional, scientist, researcher, business investor, legal expert, patient, or writer?
CBDtesters.co is a comprehensive website that covers all the most important news, medical breakthroughs, and trends as they pertain to the cannabis industry. We explore all cannabinoids, but maintain a heavy focus on CBD.
Please read our guidelines and website policies (at the bottom), and if you think you have some content which could be mutually beneficial then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
We currently accept both free thought leadership articles, as well as paid guest posts and sponsored content.
Generally speaking, our thought leadership articles are by-invitation-only, so unless you have been asked to write one, most chances we won’t include you in that category. However, if you believe you can add unique value to our readers, you are warmly invited to reach out to us and introduce yourself.
Benefits of Thought leadership articles:
Unlike paid guest posts and sponsored content, the thought leadership articles are completely free of-charge.
In-fact, getting the hidden gems of our industry share their experience with our community is one of our goals, so if you see yourself part of that group, we would like to offer you the perfect platform.
In exchange for your efforts, we will share your article with our community, both in our newsletters and in our social platforms.
Please be advised, that usually thought leadership articles don’t allow you to link to your website, but only within the author’s bio. If you need links, you should choose sponsored content or guest posts.
Please email [email protected] and use Thought Leadership in the subject. Please introduce yourself and tell us what are you going to write about.
Sponsored Content & Guest Posts
Well-written sponsored posts / guest posts are great for branding and SEO. Use that option is cases you wish to contribute to our website, but also strengthen your brand and improve your search visibility.
Unlike thought leadership which is free, sponsored content and guest posts carry an editorial fee.
The main difference between the two, is that while sponsored content is written by our editorial team, you will have to write the guest posts yourself, while our job is to edit it.
Benefits of sponsored content and guest posts:
You may add one back link for each article, with keywords of your desire (please avoid using “best”, “greatest”, “most” and other similar terms, we won’t allow them). Please note, self-promotion, promotion of third-party products or services is still bot allowed. Be creative and use your sponsored link in a most natural way.
CBD Testers editors reserve the right to refuse to publish your content until it is fixed. Remember, when you come to promote yourself, less is always more…
Please email [email protected] and use Sponsored Content or Guest Posts in the subject. Please tell us what are you going to write about, what is the anchor text and what is the destination URL for your paid link.
We will return with pricing.
