Hello stranger!

You have awesome article ideas and you just have to share it with the rest of the world?

You’ve come to the right place. Except if you want to write about coffee. While we do enjoy this godly beverage and consume it in concerning amounts, I’m afraid that really isn’t our cup of tea. You see what I did there? Clever stuff, I know. Moving on.

We have pretty detailed guest post guidelines to ensure that only worthy posts get published and that we don’t have to spend hours editing them because

GUEST POSTING GUIDELINES

What are we looking for

  • we believe that you need at least 1500 words to be able to properly cover a particular topic
  • our main focus is on digital marketing (with a strong focus on content marketing), SEOsocial media, penalty recovery and graphic design
  • how to posts, tips, lists, case studies
  • original content that hasn’t been published anywhere else
  • we are open to republishing infographics if we like what we see and you’re willing to write an intro (300-500 words)

 

Linking policy

  • we allow a link in the text to your BLOG CONTENT if it makes sense and brings an added value to the article
  • you can also have a link in the bio that points towards your homepage
  • feel free to send over your social media channels too
  • include 1 or 2 links to our previous blog posts
  • include 2+ links to other reputable sources (research, stats…) – there are tons of great marketing blogs out there so this shouldn’t pose a problem
  • unnatural and over-optimized anchors and links to pages that don’t feature useful and informative content will be removed and may even result in your article being rejected

Article structure & language style

  • articles need to be properly formatted (introduction, topic elaboration, conclusion)
  • facts and stats you are stating have to be backed up with a link to the proper source that supports your statement
  • conversational tone (check our previous blogs to see the language style we prefer)
  • use subtitlesshort paragraphs, and bullet points to make the article easier to follow
  • if we see another picture of people shaking hands our graphic designers are going to need to take some pills to lower their blood pressure so avoid using generic stock photos and shift your focus to screenshots and custom graphics
  • make sure we don’t have any copyright issues with the pictures you provide
  • at the end of the article, leave the author’s bio (up to 150 words) and headshot

 

Usual reasons for declining publication

  • your content is too promotional; mentioning your experience is fine but blatant promotion isn’t going to bode well
  • articles with grammar and spelling mistakes (we advise using tools like Grammarly) – taking this point lightly is also a great way to get your article declined
  • poor writing style
  • superficial topic coverage; just rehashing what other people wrote before you with no real insight or value
  • as mentioned before, getting frisky with the links

 

Content ownership and promotion

  • by sending the article, you’re giving us full ownership of the content
  • posts my be slightly edited from our side to adjust the tone and style
  • We will share the posts across all of our social network channels – FB, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+
  • We encourage you to share the post on your social channels too

 

We are a content consumers too and we know how consuming mediocre content feels.

The content we create is how we contribute to the better Internet and it just feels awesome when we do it right.
