BIME and Zendesk are building a library of analytics tutorials and best practices for our customers, written by our customers. Get paid up to $200 per article.
The content we seek
We are looking for your ideas and expertise on how you’re using BIME. Got an amazing dashboard with useful metrics? Know a good tip on how to join datasets or create a query?
Here are some content ideas to get the juices flowing:
- What are some unique calculations and result manipulations that you’ve used
- What’s your most useful report? How can someone replicate it?
- What sorts of dashboard reports do you send out automatically via email?
- What datasets do you join together and what reports result from that?
- Share a dashboard that you find useful (don’t worry...we can hide your actual numbers) and tell us how and why you built this dashboard.
Have another idea? Pitch us your idea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why participate in our community
Our community is not just about building a resource for our customers. It’s about connecting our customers with one another, so they can learn from each other. Participating in our community means you will be able to share your knowledge and expertise with others like you in a Help Center that is highly-ranked in Google search results (and make a little extra cash while doing it).
How to write your article
Turn your expert advice into a written article with images/gifs and step-by-step instructions. You can write:
- A single article, approximately 500 words
- A article series, like a cookbook with various recipes
Please refer to our writing style guide for proper usage of terminology. And take a look of the examples below for inspiration:
- Performing analyses without SQL
- Adding alerts in Slack, Flowdock, or Yammer
- Keep everyone happy with change measures and the visualization selector
If you include any images, make sure they are less than 600px wide and JPEG, PNG, or GIF formats.
How you’ll be paid
We can pay in BIME credits or Visa gift cards. For an article with 500 words, you’ll be compensated $200. For an article series, each part of the series should be around 500 words. For each part, you’ll receive $200. For example, for a 3-part series with approximately 1500 words, you’ll be compensated $600.
If your article lacks quality content or proper writing style—and you are unable to revise it per our feedback, we will be unable to publish your article and then therefore unable to compensate you for your work.
