Guest Contributor Guidelines – Levelset’s Construction Payment Blog
If you’re looking to get your construction payment content in front of thousands of eyeballs every week, you came to the right place. We’re thrilled you want to write for the Levelset blog and are always accepting unique, helpful articles on construction payment topics. This short set of guidelines will ensure you share your expertise with our massive audience in the most impactful way.
What We Stand For
We are here to help and empower people in the construction industry get payment under control. We love to make complex things simple. We care about improving transparency of legal requirements and legislation that affect payment rights of contractors. We believe that promoting visibility up and down the payment chain (from property owners to suppliers, and vice versa) is the best way to avoid bad payment outcomes. We strive to eliminate fear-based tactics and bullying in business practices and communication.
Who We Write For
Our audience is primarily made up of anyone who deals with payments on a construction project. This can be anyone from an office manager at a 12 person subcontractors office, to a team of finance and credit professionals at a national material supplier, to a CFO at a global general contractor. Generally, the office managers at small to mid-sized subcontractors and other sub tier parties need the most help understanding the ins and outs of their growing responsibilities and getting payment under control. Write directly to them and share your experience simply and directly, like a coach not a law professor.
Submitted Content Should Be
- Focused on a specific construction payment topic
- Simple and easy to understand
- Helpful to anyone dealing with construction payment
- Non-contrary to what we believe
- Written in a human, casual, and informative tone
