Online commentary submission guidelines

So what are we looking for?

1. Length. Your column doesn't need to be long - 300 words is enough, 600 is ideal. Keep it brief.

2. SEO. Your column should mention Asian banking or an Asian country either in the headline or first or second sentences, and at least cover a little of what is interesting in Asian banking and finance.

3. Editorial requirements. Your column must not mention your company name or products - remember, this is not a sales pitch, it is a way to increase your profile by letting others know that you have genuine and unique knowledge that you want to share with the community. It is about being a thought leader, not a sales cheerleader.

4. Originality. It must be original. Never been published anywhere. The contribution is original for ABF only and shall not be published anywhere even after the original publication in ABF.

5. Marketing. You should take part in the marketing of your article. Make sure you do your part by linking it through different social media platforms.

TOPICS: You must write about anything that bankers read in the morning to stir a thought or so. We do not cover economy and non-APAC issues.


What will you get out of it?

1. Recognition in the community - a lot of influential people read our website and will read your column.

2. Improve your professional standing - link your article to LinkedIn.

3. Hey, maybe a little fun letting off some steam or getting noticed for what you think.
