Become An Industry Thought Leader

One of the benefits to TMSA membership is the ability to share practical ideas in sales and marketing, industry best practices, and emerging trends.

If you have an opinion, expertise, or experience you’d like to share with other marketing, sales and business leaders in transportation and logistics, we invite you to submit a bylined article that we will publish on our TMSA blog, website, social media channels, and weekly e-newsletter to our members. Through these channels, you have the potential of reaching thousands of marketing, sales and business leaders in the industry.  

All members are encouraged to become a thought leader. Requirements of the article:

  • The article (or series of articles) should include helpful concepts, information or ideas that could be beneficial to your marketing, communications, sales, and business peers in the TMSA community. Your content cannot be overtly commercial or self-promotional – any content deemed as such will not be accepted or published by TMSA.
  • Individual articles should not be too long. Optimum length of any single article is 500-750 words at a minimum (and make sure to develop your content so it's SEO-optimized)
  • You should include a graphic that will help to graphically support the content of your article. This could be an illustration, an infographic, or a photo that visually highlights a main theme or an important point made in the article. The file of this graphic should be a low-rez, web-friendly .jpg file (no more than 300 dpi).
  • If desired, include a photo of yourself (as a byline) and a brief bio of yourself that underscores your credibility as a subject matter expert on the topic (no more than 75 words)

> Submit Your Article and Related Graphics (Photo, Chart, Graph or Infographic)

Additional Opportunities to Be A Thought Leader
You also can become a subject matter expert by presenting at our annual conference, webinar, or regional meeting. Currently we have a Call For Proposals out for the annual TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference next June.
