BECOME A SMALLVILLE CONTRIBUTOR TODAY
Hello there, Andrew Griffiths here, and I’m really excited about your interest to become a Smallville Contributor. But first of all, you may be wondering what exactly is Smallville and that is a very good question.
Over the past 20 years I’ve done a lot of work to help Small Business owners, through my books, my coaching, in articles I’ve written, presentations I’ve given, in media interviews, in well over 60 countries.
In that time I have connected with hundreds of thousands of Small Business owners. A question I get asked all the time is why don’t I develop a community of likeminded, passionate people to help Small Business owners grow extraordinary businesses – so I decided it was time to do exactly that.
As a result, Smallville was born. Smallville is a place for Small Business owners who think big. It is a community where a pile of people I know and respect immensely share their ideas, their advice and their best knowledge with the Small Business owners everywhere. And I would like you to be a part of that.
This is not just a site where you will be giving information, you will also be getting a lot in return. My aim to help you to become the best column writer you can so through my team we will give you feedback on any articles you submit. We will actively promote your articles and features, your own Contributor page and even your products, services and events. See, it’s a win/win for everyone.
So if you would like to take the first step and apply to be a Smallville Contributor, I need you to read through the following information. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, follow the prompts, submit a sample article and lets
go from there.
I’m really looking forward to working with you,
Founder – Smallville
