Guidelines For CB Experts

 

These guidelines are for expert contributors only (this means you are a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, aesthetician, nutritionist, health coach, fitness or yoga expert, or other person that has advanced training in what you practice).  Are you just an avid reader, blogger or community member who wants to share your experiences? Click here to jump to your guidelines.

To write as an expert on our site, you must first join the Charlotte’s Book network—in other words, we need to verify your expert status. There is no fee for our invitation-only base listings, but our admittance process is stringent: it’s not just about being appropriately certified, although of course that’s important. Please refer to Charlotte’s Code to find out if you qualify.

 

Once you’re CB verified, you can become an expert contributor. Being a contributor doesn’t mean all your submissions will be accepted, but if they’re well written, print ready, and full of useful, pertinent information that speaks to Charlotte’s Book readers, we’ll do our best to fit them in the editorial calendar. We do not accept advertorials or content that is blatantly promoting a specific product or service. If you’re looking for a more premiere level of service, features, and additional help from our award-winning editorial team, ask us about our premium listing levels or sponsored content programs. If we believe in your product, we’ll work with you to promote it. Interested in writing smart, useful educational pieces but need a little help fine tuning? Our premier directory listing levels can help with that too: whatever your needs, our editorial team will work directly with you to translate your expertise into high quality content for the Charlotte’s Book platform.

Expert Contributor Article Guidelines

 

Stay under 1,200 words.

 

Define Terms: If you use any unfamiliar jargon, explain in parenthesis at first use.

 

Voice—you’re talking to a friend: Our readers love us because we deliver expert, educational content, but it doesn’t sound newsy or cold; it sounds the voice of a trusted friend. You’re not speaking at a conference!

 

Bullets or lists help: Use topline bullets, rules or guidelines as much as possible. This helps readers focus on key points, plus it makes the article more visually appealing in a digital setting.

 

Make it personal and relatable: Be as personal as you can—using experiences or examples from your practice really helps. Not only is this engaging and relatable to the reader, it makes you sound like human, not a robot.

 

Absolutely no sales pitching or advertising: Our readers recognize a sales pitch and so does our team. Please don’t blatantly plug your products or services—that’s not what we’re about. Your content shouldn’t feel like advertising! It should feel relevant, helpful, and educational.

Guidelines For Blogging Community

 

We’re looking for people like us, who are obsessed with skincare, aesthetics, and wellness. The ideal blogger wants to share personal experiences with the intention of helping others make informed decisions. We’re especially interested in personal experiences, product reviews, and your opinions on the ever-evolving world of aesthetic health and wellness. Our focus tends toward the positive.

 

Please write to [email protected] and include the following information: Your full name, link to blog, instagram, facebook, twitter, pinterest, linkedin profile, and any examples of previous work.

 

By sharing your experiences and insights with the Charlotte’s Book community, you’re empowering readers to be passionate and confident—in return, you’ll reap the same benefits by reaching a larger audience. Once your piece has been accepted for publication, we’ll do our part to make sure it reaches as many people as possible.

Blogging Community Article Guidelines

 

Word count: Stay under 1,000 words.

 

Voice: Don’t get too casual, but be personal, relatable, and intimate. You’re sharing secrets and experiences.

 

Bullets or lists help: Use topline bullets, rules or guidelines as much as possible. This helps readers focus on key points, plus it makes the article more visually appealing in a digital setting.

 

Note: Your role as a community contributor is to share your opinions, experiences, reviews, and insights—not to give medical advice. We have an amazing network of thoroughly vetted, credentialed, CB verified experts, and we look to these experts for professional medical advice in their particular field. Although we love recipes, we will also only publish recipes from CB verified nutritionists.

Article Ideas For Bloggers

 

I Tried It: If you’ve recently had a treatment, let us know how it went. What was it like? Was the outcome what you expected? Would you recommend it? Why or why not?

 

Product Reviews: These are best in groupings of at least 4-5 products, with a theme. Be specific about what worked, what didn’t, and why.

 

Photographs: If you would like to submit a photograph with your story, please do—but look to our current images for guidance!
