We are looking for genuine guest bloggers who are legitimate experts on the following topics: online business (growth and strategy), social media, entrepreneurship, blogging, affiliate marketing, SEO, digital marketing, business technology, WordPress hacks, and web hosting.
Here's what we're looking for -
100% UNIQUE CONTENT ONLY - We're ONLY interested in guest content that is 100% unique, authentic, and needless to say, original. This means you must only submit a post that has not already be published elsewhere in any form. We will also NOT consider articles similar to others found on the web (rehashed content, re-spun content, reworded, retitled). Repurposed content is allowed, for example, an in-depth video tutorial converted into a blog post.
INFORMATIVE CONTENT ONLY - We value guest content that are Informative, Educational, and Actionable. A detailed 'Strategy Guide', 'How To Tutorial...' or 'Expert Roundup' post would be a perfect example of this. We are not interested in 700 word long, mediocre list posts.
DATA DRIVEN CONTENT - We absolutely love guest posts that contain relevant data and statistics! So, if you can, please include a few in your content to reinforce any theories and claims you are making. Just make sure that your data and stats are from reliable and credible sources, up to date, and that you add the source URL.
100% CONTENT RELEVANCY - This should go without saying - The topic of your guest post must be 100% relevant to our readers interests, and fully aligned with the nature of our website/blog. See categories mentioned above.
NO GENERIC ADVICE PLEASE - Guest posts must offer a little more than just abstract and basic, obvious tips, which is why we only consider guest content from REAL industry leaders and niche-specific bloggers, and not from general content writers. For example, if you write about social media and online business, as well as health and beauty, we're not interested.
VISUALS IN GUEST POSTS - Guest posts must contain a minimum of 1 piece of visual content (images, graphics, video, etc). If you are going to use any kind of free or paid stock images, just make sure you customize them so they are visually interesting to our readers.
MINIMUM WORD COUNT - Your guest post must exceed the minimum word count of 1,250 words. At this time, we will not accept guest posts with less than this amount. We turn down many guest posts that are below this amount, even if just by 50 words.
NO SELF-PROMOTIONAL CONTENT - Guest posts must contain ‘very little’ self- promotional content, this is very important. You are welcome to link to one of your own blog articles for resource or reference purposes, for instance, linking to a case study or report, however, it must be 100% aligned with the topic of your post.
SMART OUTBOUND LINKING (POLICY) - Guest articles must contain a minimum of 4 resourceful links to relevant and authoritative content from credible and reliable sources. (eg, linking to an article on HubSpot, CrazyEgg, SearchEngineLand, NeilPatel, CopyBlogger, HuffPost Business, Business Insider, MOZ, Mashable, Wired, The Guardian, Convince And Convert, KISSmetrics, ConversionXL, Unbounce, SEMrush Blog, or any other authoritative blog in a similar industry to ours.)
Important information about linking to client websites and affiliate links: Please DO NOT link to your company website (unless it is as relevant and authoritative as the websites mentioned above). Also, NO NOT link to your client's website/blog in the guest post content or author bio. These will be stripped away immediately. We’re used to recognising spammy-looking, third-party, anchor text link manipulation, so please don’t do it.
Additionally, links to irrelevant sites are forbidden in guest posts or the author bio.
We will especially NOT tolerate links to personal or client company websites/blogs in the following industries: ’Essay Writing’, ‘eLearning’ , ‘Resume Writing Services’, 'General Writing Services', ‘Real Estate’, ‘Law’, ‘Health & Medicine’, ‘Construction’, ‘Finance’ 'Adult & Dating'. You can clearly see those websites are NOT related to our website/ blog/ niche and content. Your own affiliate links are NOT permitted in guest posts.
OK, so what is permitted? You are permitted to add 1 (one) link to 1 (one) social media profile of your choice. And, 1 (one) link to your business or personal brand website or personal blog in the author bio only. The link to your website or blog can be a do-follow link but only as long as it's aligned with the nature of our website and carries some authority.
Nofollow link policy: All other external links in guest post content and author bio carry a no-follow attribute. Please DO NOT use or manipulate anchor text/keyword links in your bio to link to your website/blog. We recommend linking using naked URL’s only or a logical Call-to-Action, I.e. ‘Read our blog’, ‘Learn more about us’ or ‘Visit our website’.
WELL FORMATTED GUEST POSTS - Guest posts must be correctly formatted before being submitted to us for consideration. If English is not your first language, we do not discriminate, however, we do recommend checking the readability of your post before submitting it to us.
WRITING STYLE - This must be unique, however, it must also be fitting for the language style and voice that our readers are used to. Your guest post must not sound like it was written by a corporate robot. Your post must also be easy to read, and not contain too many jargon words or phrases.
SHARING AND COMMENTING - If your guest post is accepted and published on our blog, we will kindly ask that you help to promote it on social media and via email. Please also be available to respond to any comments your post receives in a timely fashion.
