Best Practices for Engaging Articles:

To write for Tenbound, you must be involved in B2B SaaS GTM strategy and tactics. Sales, Marketing, Sales Development, Customer Success, RevOps, Executive Team.

Articles should be of interest to Tenbound readers, and to help other GTM professionals succeed. They should be written by a person, not a content manager or PR department.

While we encourage drawing from your own experiences in sales to support your ideas, promotion of yourself or your product/company will prevent us from publishing your article.

Data-driven research and insights do best.

Whom Are You Writing For?

Our goal is to help GTM professionals do their jobs better in the present, all while preparing them for the future.

To that end, we publish a wide range of topics for every level of sales, from individual contributors to leadership.

Our readers are primarily B2B GTM professionals.

Our demographics:

  • GTM Sales Development Leadership – 50%
  • Individual Contributors (BDRs, SDRs, AEs) – 25%
  • Marketers – 15%
  • Sales Enablement and Revenue Operations – 10%

What Should You Write About?

We’re looking for content on all GTM topics — just being aware that people are working remotely, in a tough economy, with challenges they’ve never had before. That opens a lot of doors for new slants on topics. But we should continue to cover basic sales skills and tactics that will help them succeed.
