    – Good Event Title, "Book of Mormon Broadway Musical Comedy";
    – Bad Event Titles, "Hottest New Satire of Latter Day Saints" or "Celebration & Reflection" or "Happy Times" (yes, these are real submissions we’ve received).
    This isn’t about cute marketing or PR gimmicks. The nature of your event should be perfectly clear in your headline.
  2. No press releases, this site publishes articles. The first paragraph must be a Full Paragraph and several continuous sentences of at least 5 lines of text.
  3. If the business or event is not in Manhattan, public transportation must be included.
  4. Photo/Image Guidelines – please read below
  5. When submitting payment, there is a Memo Field in Paypal (it is tiny!!!). Please add the name of your event or business there (this is how we connect the submission to the payment).
  6. Keep reading for additional tips on image specifications and other listing guidelines.

 

Guidelines for Both Business and Event Listings

  1. Please have all your text and images ready prior to filling out the form in case your network connection is disrupted, we don’t want you to lose all your work.
  2. Image Names – Must include at least one photograph, named descriptively. Do NOT upload images with generic names such as "image-1" or "logo" or "flyer." (Name your images to coordinate with your post, such as "nike-shoes-sample-sale.jpg."
  3. Images should be landscape orientation (width greater than height) and not portrait. Ideal image width is either 1024 or 1280 so we can feature it as a banner across the top of your listing (example)
  4. Accepted image formats are .jpg or .jpeg
  5. Image Size Restrictions – Image maximum upload size is 100 kb and max width is 1280px. Please use picmonkey.com or iloveimg.com to format your image. iloveimg.com will let you compress your image, which does not comprise photo quality, but does reduce the file size of the image (not the dimensions, but the file size)
  6. Correct spelling, punctuation and grammar. This is a quality website and only quality submissions will be accepted.
  7. Must appeal to a wide audience
  8. Please do not ask how long it will take to post your event before you submit it. When 6 businesses ask in a day, before submitting their listings, there is no way to provide an answer. Estimated and maximum timelines are posted on this page, for each listing type, and we try and post all submissions as quickly as possible. Many are posted the same day they are submitted.
  9. Please SHARE your page once it goes live or share the homepage today! The power of group posting allows a site with more links and likes to get YOU much more traffic.
  10. If you have any trouble, please email me at melissa @ nycinsiderguide.com
  11. Note: Your Paypal receipt will use the business name: FilmProposals-NYC Insider Guide

I really try my best to accommodate all businesses and events, but my ultimate goal is always to maintain a successful site, which takes time and resources. Submissions that DO follow the guidelines still take me time to approve, edit and process, so I am quick to delete any free submissions that don’t follow these instructions precisely. For featured packages, I will always try and work with you to best showcase your business or event.

Please Note: The best events and business for NYC Insider Guide usually fit with the theme of the site and appeal to a wide audience of both Tourists and Locals. Generally, only 5-borough listings will be posted. Religious events, one day business conferences and one-night shows at small venues, especially outside of Manhattan, will likely not be posted.
