The Rules

While we love content that thinks outside the box, we do have a few key ground rules to ensure we maximize value to our readership.

1. Know your audience.

Remember, our readers are the leaders and innovators of the beauty and personal care industry. Be sure you're telling them something they don't already know.

2. Be original and compelling.

People in this industry are time-starved, so get to the point efficiently and tell an engaging story.

3. Educate, educate, educate.

Whether your story runs 50 or 1,200 words, be sure to teach the audience something and provide data and hard numbers whenever possible.

4. Don't sell.

We're sure you have the latest, greatest innovations, but readers switch off when editorial turns into a sales pitch. Stick close to the educational dictum, and invaluable engagement for you and your organization will follow.

5. Have fun.

Beauty is driven by excitement and pleasure—so don't be afraid to bring a sense of joy and enthusiasm to your work.
