Articles submitted for consideration should be of interest to readers of OMNIKAL, have a tone that is appropriate for OMNIKAL’s community of SMBs or Fortune 1000 executives, and be written by a real person, vs. a PR department.
We like articles that introduce fresh new ideas, innovation, perspectives and advance conversations around the topics and trends that engage our readers – please think op-ed rather than content marketing. We appreciate lively, polished writing that balances research or news with fun and memorable anecdotes or examples that help illustrate your point of view.
While we encourage drawing from your own experiences in business to support your ideas, over-the-top self promotion (of yourself or your company) will prevent us from publishing your article. Same goes for dense jargon and abstract or blanket assertion.
“Please no pitches, abstracts, outlines, press releases, or interview offers.”
OMNIKAL prefers submissions from contributors who are leaders in and knowledgeable about the types of industries and topics we regularly cover in our blog:
- All things Digital
- Career development
- Generation Z & Y
- Growing & scaling
- Growing your business
- Hiring and recruiting
- Human capital management
- Small Business
- Women in Business
- Women in Tech
- Work culture
- Work life balance
- Work-life issues
All the above topics are popular with our readers, especially if there’s a key takeaway for other entrepreneurs and professionals.
To get an idea of the types of stories OMNIKAL wants to publish, and how the finished acceptable finished product looks, please read our blog! Remember the best articles are made “skimmable” through adding bolded headlines, numbered items and grouped categories for fast reading.
HOW TO SUBMIT

For those that are:
- All articles are subject to editing at our discretion.
- Headlines and subheads are subject to change.
- Content may be edited for style, tone, or substance.
- Links may be added for context.
- Art will be added at the discretion of OMNIKAL staff.
- Articles may or may not be promoted across OMNIKAL’s family of sites, on our homepage, in our newsletters, and via our social feeds.
OMNIKAL requests that contributed articles remain exclusive to our site for three to five business days, after which time they may be reprinted in part or full on other sites, with a link back to the original article on OMNIKAL.
