Developer Marketing Alliance (DMA) is home to a growing network of 1,000s of developer marketers.
Since its launch, DMA has received tens of thousands of visits from professionals from some of the world’s leading companies, all looking to learn more about the latest trends and developments in the industry, from developer marketing to developer relations, communities, and experience – and everything in-between.
To power up our ever-expanding community of marketing pros, we’re always on the lookout for people just like you to share your expertise and help us shape the future of developer marketing.
Interested in sharing your insights and experiences with our community? Read on to find out how you can contribute to the DMA platform.
Write for us ✍️
Whether you want to write about developer marketing, DevRel, and dev communities, or developer experience, SaaS, personas and segmentation, we want to hear more.
If you’ve got the insights, we’ve got the platform.
Here’s how to contribute. 👇
Step 1: Submit your subject
Before you put your fingers to the keyboard, drop us a line and let us know what you want to write about. Some popular topics include:
- Developer relations and advocacy
- Building and growing communities (inc. open-source)
- DevTools and technologies
- Events (hackathons, webinars, etc.)
- Content, social media, and technical documentation
- Industry trends
- Thought leadership
- Developer culture, pain points, needs
- SaaS marketing, user acquisition, etc.
- Marketing APIs, SDKs, and other tools
Step 2: Follow the rules
We’re a reasonable bunch and don’t ask for too much, but there are a few things we want:
- Articles need to have a minimum of 800 words
- Any pictures included must be royalty-free
- A picture to sit with your contributor profile
- A short bio of maximum 200 characters
Also, individual contributions shouldn’t promote your company’s products or services. For that sort of stuff, we have sponsorship opportunities.
See below for these opportunities!
Step 3: Submit your work
Either send Teresa a message on Slack or reach her by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and remember to include the link/attachment to your article along with your profile pic and bio – if you’re not already set up as a contributor, that is.
Already published something awesome elsewhere?
Not a problem. With canonical links, you can still share it with our audience too.
Yawn 💤 time for the boring bits…
We include images with every post. Stock photography will be chosen by our team and will be posted with your entry unless you have a particular image you wish to use. By including any photos, screenshots, or images, you consent to allow the Developer Marketing Alliance to post this image.
Links in your post should be relevant to the story you’re telling and provide context to your audience. When referring to another article or piece of research, please use proper citation or link to the source material.
We reserve the right to use any and all contributed content, with credit to any authors, in its entirety or in portions for promotional purposes, including in social media, other blogs, or newsletters. Developer Marketing Alliance may choose to cross-post to Medium, LinkedIn, or other blogging services.
