Practical Ecommerce

Editorial Policy

Our editorial mission is to help ecommerce merchants grow and prosper. We do this with easy-to-follow articles, blogs, podcasts and newsletters all delivered electronically by seasoned, talented contributors — see “Current Authors.”   We value editorial integrity and are members of Society of American Business Editors and Writers.

Editorial Calendar

Our content is mostly planned around one-time feature stories and recurring departments that address a certain topic. The mix of our content periodically changes based on the needs of our merchant audience and on new developments that can impact them. We closely manage our content, but we do not publish a public editorial calendar.

Become an Expert Source

If you or your client possess expertise helpful to smaller ecommerce merchants, we encourage you to enter your contact and biographical information into our editorial database. Our editorial staff uses this source for researching stories, including background help and public on-the-record quotations. Become an expert source. >
