At Digital Startup, we love to educate and inform our audience – Helping others is what drives us. If you are an expert in your field (within the niche of eCommerce) and would like to write practical, high-quality and actionable content to our audience then we’d love to hear from you.

We are here to help them build their first online store or grow an existing business. Our content assumes that our audience is not tech savvy. The last thing we want to do is overwhelm our readers with new ideas and a lot of acronyms and abbreviations.
Demographically, our audience is between the ages of 25-35, male and live all over the world. That’s not to say you can’t aim your content at a different demographic.
