Do you have a passion for writing and want to share your ideas with a wider audience? Our website welcomes guest contributors who are interested in submitting original editorial content. If you're eager to join our team, simply follow the five steps outlined below.
Step 1: Read Our Editorial Guidelines: Each post must be original and cannot have been published on other websites or in print publications. If you have commercial relationships with any companies or individuals mentioned in your post, you must fully disclose them.
We have exclusive rights to the post for 24 hours after it's published. After that, you may repost it on your personal blog or website with proper attribution. However, please obtain our consent before reposting the content on any third-party site.
While you can link to your own social media profiles, blog, and other assets from your own business within your post, we reserve the right to remove third-party affiliate links.
Our editorial staff will edit each post to adhere to our style guidelines and to ensure length is appropriate. Your submission is subject to review and does not guarantee automatic publication. By submitting your post, you agree to comply with our editorial guidelines and give our editor permission to make necessary edits.
Step 2: Craft a Pitch: The best guest posts are written by authors who are passionate about their subject matter. Consider where your interests and expertise align with our coverage areas. A specific, tailored pitch that is focused on our audience of experienced professionals is more likely to be successful.
Include a one or two sentence summary of your post and a suggested headline.
Step 3: Submit Your Pitch: Send your pitch to the appropriate editor via email. Due to the volume of emails our editors receive, it may take up to a week to receive a response.
Step 4: Write Your Post: Our posts typically range from 500 to 900 words. The most effective posts have a light, breezy tone while still making their points clearly.
Include a short bio (35 to 45 words) at the bottom of the post. Your name, organization, and recent accomplishments are great to include. We're happy to link to your website, Amazon book page, Facebook, or Twitter account. Just be sure to include all necessary URLs when submitting your post.
If necessary, we will add stock art to accompany your post. Feel free to submit a headshot or book cover image.
Step 5: Promote and Engage: Our website will promote your content through various social networks and email newsletters. You're also welcome to share the link with your own network for maximum exposure. Your editor will coordinate a specific publication date with you and send you a link to your post when it goes live.
