Contribute Under Our Expert Author Program

Small Business Trends Expert Author Program

We’ve designed this program especially for you.  The Small Business Trends Expert Author Program permits you to become a regular contributor of high-quality, original, never-before published article contributions for publication on the site.


Exposure is valuable to build a small business brand. Your articles at Small Business Trends have the potential to be viewed by an audience of hundreds of thousands of readers and syndication subscribers each month, and exposed to hundreds of thousands more through our social media channels.

Over time, with repeated contributions you will be exposed to millions in our audience. No compensation is provided for articles under the Expert Author Program.

But the benefits are great. The main benefit is to build thought leadership in the small business space. Numerous contributing authors have gotten new clients, media interviews, speaking engagements, even book deals — all as a result of their participation on Small Business Trends.  Other benefits include making networking connections that can benefit your business.

We do not accept one-off contributions. We look for contributors who wish to become part of the Small Business Trends community by contributing regularly.
