Gaming in Holland guest blog submission guidelines

Thank you for considering to submit a guest blog for publication on the Gaming in Holland website.  The following guidelines should give you an idea of what we we are looking for. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our editor at jeroen@gaminginholland.com.

Topics

Gaming in Holland is a business community for professionals working in the gambling industry or associated service providers, with a particular (but not exclusive) focus on the Netherlands.

Obviously, your topic needs to be relevant to our audience.

Having said that, we are happy to publish guest contributions of interest to gambling professionals working in either the online or land-based markets, and across all product verticals from casino games to lotteries.

Length

Successful submissions are typically around 500-600 words in length. Longer articles are welcome, but will need to contain sufficient information to warrant the greater length. Briefness and being to the point are both writerly virtues.

Put your audience first

The primary goal of every successful submission is to inform or entertain our website visitors.

We understand that some of you might want to promote a particular product or service. This is fine! However, successful submissions are far more than sales pitches. Tell your readers something they don’t already know about your market or product category. Make your guest blog interesting even to those who are not buying.

If at all possible, tie your submission into an important topic or development taking place in the gambling industry.

Tell a story

Every story has a beginning, middle, and end.

Begin your story by briefly introducing your topic or the question you will be answering in the remainder of your article. Tell your readers why your topic or question matters. Explain why and how (and possibly for whom) your story is relevant.

Develop your story in the main body of the article you are submitting. Be concrete and provide specific examples. If possible, show rather than tell. Don’t be afraid to use subheadings to provide a clear structure to your story.

End your story with a conclusion. Briefly recap the main points your readers should take away from your submission, or perhaps suggest (general) steps they can take to address a certain issue.

Other things to remember

  • We welcome illustrations to go along with your submission. However, you must own the copyright to all visual materials you are submitting.
  • We reserve the right to edit your story.
