🤔 Why should you write for Novu?
Novu is a constantly growing open-source platform that is built by developers for developers. By writing for Novu, not only can you get more attention to your content but also make some money on the side. It’s a win-win!
We also want to help you grow — there is a huge disparity between writers that know about tech and tech workers that can write. We want to help you flourish and polish your craft so you can master the tech and the creative side!
🎖️ Get Recognized
Anything that you write about will help you gain recognition in the community. All articles undergo a review process to ensure they meet our quality standards and can be posted. By writing for Novu, you’ll have the following benefits:
- Full Credits: Your article will be featured on our blog under your name, and you get all the bragging rights!
- Visibility: You’ll also be cross-posting the article on other platforms like DEV.to and Medium, so everyone can see your hard work!
- Exposure: Novu will share everything we publish of yours through our Twitter and our Discord server to increase the viewership and spread the word about your article.
💶 Get Paid
At Novu, we recognize your efforts and want to ensure that you get compensated for it properly! Here are our pay rates:
- Articles: from $100 to $150
- Tutorials: from $150 to $200
The final amount (between the range) will be decided based on the complexity of the blog post you’re working on.
How To Get Started
Fill Out Our Form
You need to fill out this form to get started. Once you fill this form out, you’ll be in our “content writers” database.
Plan What You’ll Be Writing About
We want people to know how Novu can work with different platforms and systems worldwide. That can be any other open-source library, a SaaS API, or your own startup. Anything with a unique use case or integration with an existing platform is a good basis! We want you to highlight your work, so get creative! Novu doesn’t — and shouldn’t — be the focal point of your article. Your project should be!
We also have a list of topics that you can work with! You can check it out here.
Write an Outline
After you pick a topic to work on, you will write a short outline of your article and send it to us. This helps us eliminate any misunderstandings from the beginning and agree on the article structure.
If the article outlines a gap between your knowledge and the topic, we will provide advice and guidelines for writing. If the gap is significant, we might ask you to choose a different topic as per our needs and your expertise.
After you’ve been assigned a topic, you can start working on it. Before you do, read our Style Guide For Blogs first so you have a solid grasp of what we’re looking for and how we structure our content.
You’ll be sent a Notion document to write the article in. This is important for our writing process as we can later give you comments on your article and ensure it is managed better.
If you prefer writing with another tool and then pasting it into Notion, that’s fine too! What’s important is that the final draft is pasted into the Notion document.
Once you’re done, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inform him that you’re done with the post. Then, our team will review it and begin the editing process. If there are any issues, we’ll let you know directly and give you plenty of time to adjust.
Your article will probably undergo an editing process where we make changes either to polish the writing or for SEO purposes. We encourage you to take a look at the differences between the two, and we will also be giving you feedback on your writing so you can hone your craft!
Once the blog post has been reviewed, all changes necessary have been made, and the post has been approved for posting, we’ll assign a publish date for your blog post. You’ll be asked to provide details about yourself to feature on our website if you’re a new writer.
If this blog post is cross-posted to other platforms like DEV.to or Medium, we’ll ask you to publish it under the Novu organization on the agreed date.
Some posts might undergo the entire writing and review process. But if our team finds that they do not fit our blog or posting schedule, we’ll ask you to post it on your accounts on DEV.to. You’ll still get paid for it as you would for approved posts.
Once the blog post is published, you can submit an invoice to get paid. Please refer to the FAQ section to learn how to submit an invoice.
Please read our Style Guide before you write to learn about the guidelines your post needs to follow.
A tutorial guides the reader in a step-by-step fashion to learn ‘how’ to do something.For example - How to create your newsletter using MailChimp.
An article on the other hand, is usually a blog post that promotes or explains a certain idea to the reader. It can be a low-level idea or a high-level one. For example, an article that explains the differences between MailChimp and Novu.
Our blog posts are generally about how Novu can be integrated into an application. We don’t want the full spotlight, we just want to show how Novu can improve something (or bring it together). However, if you have an idea that you think is good and doesn’t fall under these topics, then please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com
No, blog posts should be unique. If we detect any plagiarism, your blog post will be rejected or you’ll be asked to rewrite it.
If you face any issues or, for personal reasons, are unable to deliver an article by its deadline, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss and get an alternative deadline.
We are generally lenient with this as we contact you and try to figure out why you missed the deadline. However, if we find no communication from your side or if you fail to make any progress before the deadline, we’ll remove your assignment from the topic. This will also result in no payment.
If your article is approved after the review process, it will be posted on our blog and our accounts across different platforms. You’ll have to raise and submit an invoice post, and you'll get paid.
If your article is not approved after the review process, it means that we’ll ask you to post it on your own accounts across platforms or your own blog.
If your article is declined, there are typically two reasons:
- The article doesn’t fit our requirements at the moment. In this case, we’ll ask you to post it from your account on DEV.to for example. You’ll still get paid in this case.
- There is another problem with the article (e.g. plagiarism). In this case, we decline it completely, and no payment will be issued.
There’s no limit! If you have ideas of your own or think you’re a good fit for one of the ideas we’re looking to cover, please email email@example.com.
Through bank transfer after submitting an invoice.
Once your article is published, you can send an invoice to get paid. You can use any invoice generator to create an invoice, but make sure that the invoice includes the following information:
- Our company details: NOTI-FIRE APPS LTD 516509775
- Your payment info:
- Full name and address
- Bank account name and address
- SWIFT code or Routing
- Account number
- The name of the article you’re invoicing: for every invoice to ensure it has the mutually agreed upon amount.
- All invoices must be in USD
- Please send the invoice to firstname.lastname@example.org
It usually takes a maximum of two weeks (up to 10 business days) for payments to be sent and reflected in your account after we receive your invoice. If you run into any issues, please contact email@example.com.
If you have any additional questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
