We welcome and love new contributions from our growing NLP, Coaching & Personal Development community. If you would like to submit an article please follow the guidelines:

Word count: Posts should run between 250 and maximum of 800 words.

Tone: Our posts are about personal development, change and growth so should be positive, motivational and informative. Take a look around and see what we’ve previously posted.

Original Content: All posts submitted must be unique and original to the NLP Coaching Conference website. We will not accept posts that have already been published or submitted elsewhere online (this includes own personal blogs and future submissions to other sites)

We are not interested in SEO-driven submissions: We are not interested in content farming or articles written for the sole purpose boosting SEO. Articles should not be written to promote products and brand names within a post. If your submission, bio references, business or service is not in line with our philosophy then we are not interested.

Bio and promotion: Since we do not compensate contributors for posts, we’re more than happy to include a byline and your brief bio containing links to your website, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter accounts, which we will promote when your post goes live. Please keep your bio to just 2-3 sentences. The NLP Coaching Conference is a great platform to promote what you’re doing; some of our contributors have boosted their profiles and business opportunities – some of whom will go on to speak at our future conferences.

Claims: If you mention a statistic or a study in your piece, please include a link to that source. Tell us how you know. Ideally you’d link to peer-reviewed scientific papers, academic journals, and/or credible news outlets. This way, readers can follow your line of thinking and investigate further if they want to know more.

We love connecting with new contributors. While we do our best to cover the volume of articles, bookings and requests, our team at the NLPCCF (NLP Coaching Conference) consists of just a few people. As such, sometimes we don’t have the opportunity to respond to all submissions. We can assure you, however, that we carefully read every single submission that we receive. If your post has been accepted, we will respond within 14 days. If your post has not run within two weeks of submission, we have passed on this occasion.

Please only submit one post at a time: You’re welcome to submit again with a different post after you’ve waited 14 days.

By submitting to NLPCCF (NLP Coaching Conference) you acknowledge and accept our terms, and any form of editing that may occur on behalf of the NLPCCF editorial team.

BEFORE SUBMITTING TO NLPCCF ASK YOURSELF

Is my piece inspiring, informative, and/or educational?
Posts featured on NLPCCF are positive and informative. If your piece is not about the subjects we value, it’s probably not for us.

Has this topic already been covered?
We feature a wide range of topics on NLPCCF and we have a library of great content. How can your piece add to what’s already there? Make your piece stand out, be different!

What’s a great title?
A good title has the potential to grab the reader’s attention. A stand-out title will benefit your post so think about it carefully.  Ask yourself: What would make me stop and read this? How does my article improve lives?

Is my first paragraph clear and attention grabbing?
You only get one chance to make a first impression! So does your introduction wow the reader….will they stop what they are doing to read your article? Does your first paragraph tell the reader very clearly and succinctly what the article will be about?

Am I offering achievable solutions/tips/advice?
Many readers come to NLPCCF to find solutions, new options, learning and growth. A great piece will provide tips and solutions that they can implement easily.

5 TIPS TO WRITE A GREAT POST

1. Write in your own voice.
Use that conversational tone when you write! A great post will sound like a real person wrote it, and it will have a distinctive voice.

2. Keep it short.
These don’t need to be long posts! Just 700 words is great! If you’re going to offer tips, include a short introductory paragraph at the top of your post explaining why you’re offering this advice. Are you an expert on the topic? Did you struggle to understand the issue and want to share your knowledge?

3. Stick to plain English!
Many people who visit NLPCCF are new to the site, so we prefer to use plain English when describing terms. For example, if you’re writing about NLP, assume you are writing for someone with no experience so that way the reader a clear understanding of the processes, terms, wording etc.

4. Images speak a thousand words….
Remember an enticing photo can capture the eye of the reader before the title.

5.Show us your sources. (We can’t emphasize this enough!)
If you mention a statistic or a study in your piece, please include a link to that source.
