As you may know, SWFBT has been publishing its monthly “Commercial RE Update” for the past seven years. It is a snapshot of commercial real estate trends and topics in Southwest Florida. The next issue deadlines for editorial content 5pm Wed. April 13 and ad space and proof 5pm Fri. April 15. System ready material is due by noon Mon. April 18.
Both free and paid marketing opportunities are available. Free editorial content includes your guest column submissions and press releases.
Guest column guidelines are as follows. First, we’re looking for original material. Second, it must have a local angle and be educational in its approach, written for the business owner/ operator. Third, we would like a 20-30 word “mini-bio” of the author, as it applies, and we will print that in addition to contact information. If you have a headshot photo we can use, that would also be appreciated. The average column is around 500 words.
Or, in this issue, you may submit 300 words ABOUT your business and include a company photo or two if you wish. The mini bio can either be for the submitter, the owner or it can be a company mini bio.
We really appreciate your submissions to share your information and insights about the local commercial real estate market with SWFBT readers—especially at this most unusual time. Guest columns are due by 5pm Wednesday, April 13. Please send guest columns to email@example.com.
