Write for Gotechtor

Welcome to Gotechtor! We’re thrilled you’re considering joining us. Since its humble beginning, Gotechtor was created to help people solve problems with their gadgets by publishing high-quality and easy-to-understand tutorials. It’s awesome and incredible what we’ve been able to accomplish in a short period of time, but we think we can do even better.

To help us produce more content, raise their quality and grow faster, we are looking for great new authors and editors to join our team. If this sounds interesting to you, keep reading to find out what’s involved, and how to join our team.

What We’re Looking For

We are looking for experienced writers to cover how-to tutorials, product reviews and comparisons, and explainers across various topics, including, but not limited to, things like iPhone, Android phones, Smart Home, Wearables, Gadgets, and other consumer tech-related topics.

These are some of the type of articles that we publish:

  • How-to — Either helping people get started with a new technology, or fixing any problems they may have with their gadgets.
  • Opinion — Do you have a strong opinion on something in our industry and the research to back it up? These can make useful talking points.
  • Ultimate Guides — Longer articles really digging into a subject. A reference piece that people will return to time and time again.

What We’re Not Looking For

  • Story that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
  • Content marketing company working on behalf of clients.
  • Link building opportunities.

We do offer sponsored post options for companies who would like to increase their visibility while sponsoring great content. You should note, this is not a way to post an advert, rather a way for you to put your brand to some great content for our readers.

Examples might be a company with a productivity tool sponsoring a series of articles about productivity; a finance app sponsoring an article about budgeting and money management. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this.

What Are the Requirements?

  • Familiarize yourself with the stories we write. We cover all things smartphone, with a focus on how-to tutorials, product reviews, guides, and analysis.
  • Be able to explain complex topics in a way that is clear and easy to understand, even to non-tech savvy people.
  • You must be a great writer with fluent English writing skills. 
  • Be able to generate article ideas, take suggestions, and make topics interesting and fun to read.
  • You must be committed and have a strong desire to produce quality content with actionable advice that solves our readers’ problems. 
  • You’re responsible to promote your articles, reply to any comments in a timely manner.

Here’s a couple of our previous articles to get an idea of what we’re looking for in terms of quality and content:
