  • a detailed analysis of why you think a stock is worth owning or why BTIR is flawed
  • a poem where you muse about why there's more to retirement than just money
  • a comic you created using simple software or hand-drawn to perfection
  • an amusing short story where you share some profound lesson about managing your money

What Is Seedly Opinions?

Seedly Opinions is unique Seedly Reward that is only accessible to active community members.

Once you're onboarded as a Seedly Opinions writer, you'll get access to a text editor which allows you to write, publish, and share YOUR personal finance-related stories and content directly on the Seedly community feed.

Whether you're...

  • a personal finance-related platform with a team of writers
  • an experienced personal finance/financial/investment blogger with your own blog or website
  • an aspiring creator without a platform, who is thinking about creating personal finance-related content
  • an average Singaporean with a 9-to-5 job, 2 kids, 3 cats, 6 dogs, and 5 hamsters...

It doesn't matter how noob, simple, contrarian, cheem, or obscure you believe your opinions are.

As long as you have something to say about anything related to personal finance, then Seedly Opinions is the platform for you!

What Can I Write on Seedly Opinions?

Seedly Opinions is a platform for you to share your personal finance-related ideas, thoughts, and experiences, so feel free to write about what matters to YOU.

This could be in the form of:

  • A daily journal to keep yourself accountable for your finances/savings/investment habits
  • A personal experience you had on your personal finance/investing journey (the community is interested in both the good and bad!)
  • Alternative content which is personal finance-related (e.g. poems, comics, short stories, memes)
  • Commentary on personal finance-related news, studies, articles, books you've read
  • Detailed analysis of companies, stocks, or any financial instrument
  • Research pieces, investment frameworks, knowledge-heavy insights
  • Quick thoughts or a lengthy opinion about why something would or wouldn't work (e.g. fiscal policies, taxes, CPF)

The possibilities are endless.

Most importantly, it's YOUR opinion, so that means that your content doesn't have to go through the Seedly team at all.

Just write, publish, and you're all set.

P.S. even though your Opinions are yours, they should still adhere to our community guidelines.

How Do I Start Writing on Seedly Opinions?

To start contributing your Opinions, log in to your Seedly account and head over to the Seedly community.

Click on "Post Opinion" and you'll be greeted with a text editor, which allows you to craft your Opinions.

Tag the relevant topic tags (eg. REITs, CPF, Investments) so that Seedly community members who are following that topic tag will see your Opinions on their feed. And include an attractive cover image to attract readers — it could be as complex or as simple as you'd like.

How Can I Grow My Audience With Seedly Opinions?

Besides giving you access to thousands of Seedly community members, there are many ways to build your audience on Seedly and beyond.

1. Share your Opinions

To share Opinions on social media, simply click on the share icon (your readers will also be able to share and bookmark your Opinions).

Alternatively, all Seedly Opinions have their own unique and shareable URL.

2. Engage with other Seedly community members in the "Comments" section of your Opinions 

Some readers might have questions, perspectives, and sometimes even words of appreciation for you. Engage with the community and grow a following.

3. Leverage on the Seedly community's questions

The Seedly community is teeming with questions and discussions. So jump in, share your perspectives, and build thought leadership.

If you find that you have previously written Opinions that answer a question or can provide an alternative perspective, provide context and drop a link back to your Opinions so that other community members can benefit from what you have shared previously.

4. Create quality content

The Seedly team regularly reviews Opinions published on the platform. From time to time, we might select those that meet our distribution standards and exhibit a high level of quality for additional distribution via Seedly's social media channels, newsletters, and more.

A wider distribution means a larger audience for your brand, blog, or website.

How Can I See How My Opinions Perform?

Each Seedly Opinions has stats such as a view count, which allows you to see how many readers have read your Opinions.

And even an upvote count, so you can better understand what your readers like.
