Be conversational. Show your expertise and use qualified sources, but be sure to use a casual tone that is understandable and approachable to all levels of marketing professional.
Format your blog article for readability and SEO. Organize your blog article with H1, H2, and H3 tags. Use bolding and bulleted lists to make your articles skim-able to readers.
Do not over-promote. We want to help you reach your business goals with this guest blog, but we ask that you don’t use the article to advertise your products or services. Instead, create a thought leadership article that proves your knowledge and expertise, then you may drop a paragraph about your company or your bio at the end with one link back to your website.
Articles must be 100% original, and your own work. If you are using ghost writers, you’ll need to note this in your original email pitch (although, you won’t have to disclose it on the final article).
Use qualified sources, and cite them. We want our articles to be authoritative and data-driven. Use sources that are reputable (sorry, wikipedia!) and use data to back up their findings. Each article should include at least 3 hyperlinks to sources.
Topics we’re looking for:
-Social media marketing
-Branding/design for eCommerce businesses
-Growth hacks for small businesses
-B2C Digital Marketing
-Articles should be between 600-2,000 words and should be broken into easily digestible headlines.
-We believe in the Oxford comma. We have intense, passionate, and unmitigated feelings about this.
-Use the H1, H2, H3, and body settings available in Word and Google Docs to format your doc. Don’t worry about the font sizing or selection, our blog defaults will handle the rest!
-We design the hero image so that it fits with the aesthetic of our blog, but you can submit any images for the content of your article with your final article submission.
