The Tow Academy Submission Guidelines
The Tow Academy publishes content on a variety of topics pertaining to the towing industry. These topics range from industry changes, ongoing education, and best practices… to strategies for hiring and retaining quality employees, and ways to acquire customers and market your towing business so that it grows into a powerhouse in your market.
So, we’re always on the lookout for fresh new ideas that will help our readers make more money.
We welcome your articles, how-to videos, infographics, slide-shows, and more. Our topics range from building business skills to what’s changing in the industry…to using specific social media platforms to boost sales. The bottom line… if it helps tow company owners grow their businesses, we’ll be happy to consider it.
We invite you to submit your ideas. Once you do, we’ll take a look, and if we like what we see, we’ll publish it on our website.
You don’t have to be a Tow Academy customer to submit your articles. Customer or not, having an article published on The Tow Academy is a great opportunity for you to…
- Promote your business.
- Bring attention to your skills and expertise.
- Get a valuable link back to your website.
- And develop valuable skills you can use in your own writing.
To increase the chances that your article, video, or slide-show will be published please read through the guidelines below.
What We Are Looking For
Any article you submit should provide valuable and actionable information that a tow company owner can use to grow their business and achieve greater success. Of course, there are many ways to do this. You can focus on a specific topic like accident recovery best practices, or working with motor clubs… you can share a success story… you can review a tool, truck or service used in the towing industry, or you can do an interview with a tow company owner or vendor. Really the opportunities for submission ideas are endless.
Just make sure your article does two things:
- It must relate to the towing industry and provide a real benefit to any visitor to our site.
- It must include practical information that the reader can use in their own business.
We prefer article submissions that are between 900 and 1,500 words. Of course, this doesn’t mean that we will not consider articles that go outside those guidelines. But, you’ll need to give us good reason to do so, meaning it must be quality content.
Videos and Slide-Shows
If you have video ideas for how-to videos, you are welcome to submit them as well. Please ensure that the video can be covered sufficiently in a three-to-five minute video.
We also accept submissions that are infographics, slide shows, only. Do you have a Power-Point presentation that can be turned into a video? As long as it provides real actionable value to site visitors we’ll consider it.
How to Submit Your Article
If have an article or video idea that you want us to consider, please use the Submission Form to provide your information.
Keep in mind, you’ll need to create a pitch worthy of our consideration.
Do this by first explaining your idea and the key points you’ll cover in the article. Then continue by explaining why your article will benefit tow company owners. And, lastly, you’ll need to provide a snippet about your background and your experience surrounding the towing industry.
[side note] You do not need to have a background in the towing industry, you simply need to demonstrate how your submission will provide value to our readers.
Then, we will contact you within a couple of days to let you know if we want you to write the article or not. If we do contact you, please plan to include your byline, as well as a picture with your submission.
