Write for HoopSocial

Are you basketball-obsessed? So are we! 

Whether you’re a professional journalist or an everyday hoops fan, your opinions matter. By writing for HoopSocial, our platform will give your content exposure and give you the ability to earn money and boost your personal social media presence.

What is HoopSocial?

HoopSocial began in December of 2020 as a series of social media directories for NBA and WNBA teams and players. Over time, the site has transitioned into a content-first approach, and is rapidly gaining followers on social media platforms.

At a glance…

  • Over 24,000 website visitors in 2021
  • Over 1,500 social media follows and counting
  • Rapid Growth: new records for engagement and website traffic in October and again in November 2021

What can I write about?

HoopSocial is seeking anything basketball-related. We have categories in our blog for the NBA, WNBA, College Basketball, Basketball Betting, Top Shot, Prospects, and are always open to new opportunities.

Critical pieces are welcomed as long as they are well thought-out and reasoned; we are not interested in hosting shallow hit-pieces on the site.

Will I get Paid?

Every article that you publish will have one in-article ad (via Google AdSense) for every 300 words. These in-article ads will be 100% credited to you, and you will be paid out each time the account hits a payout threshold. Ad revenue is dependant on the number of impressions and clicks that the ads receive, so promoting your content in addition to HoopSocial’s marketing efforts will help you earn more.

Another way that we can help you out while you build your ad revenue is to provide backlinks in your author bio for your own website, podcast, or social media accounts. These will appear on your archive page, as well as every article that is published. This is a great way to establish more credibility for yourself and your own organization(s) among the online basketball community.

How Often Do I Have to Write?

There is no limit and no minimum quota. You can send us one article or 100. Either way, we’re happy to publish quality basketball content to our website. To produce significant ad revenue, it’s important to regularly publish quality content and keep traffic flowing to your articles.

Let’s Get Started.

Sick. We need two things from you:

  • Contact Info: First/Last name and Email Address
  • Author Bio (ex. “I’m a podcast host for THIS PODCAST and you can follow me on Twitter at @My_Handle. Huge fan of TEAM and love all things basketball”)

Once we have those items, we’ll contact you about how to send over an article and answer any questions you may have.

When we receive an article, you will hear back within 48 hours regarding when it will be published, and/or if any major changes will be required to get it ready for publishing.
