If you’re a perfectionist as we are, you definitely understand why we absolutely needed to finally put up a Guest Blogging Guide!
We really appreciate all the articles you’re sending to us and we want to give you the right canvas to work on! We believe that each writing style has its own charisma and we don’t want to make you “color inside the lines”, but there are some must-do’s you need to be aware of in order to be published on our blog.
Here are the topics we cover:
- Content Marketing
- Social Media Marketing
- Small Business Strategies
- Web Design
As you see we have a large variety of topics you can write about, but that doesn’t mean we strive from quality, so try to make a guest post as good as if you’d be posting it on your blog!
We believe in the power of audience, so before starting to write on our blog, you need to know who you’re writing for. Our audience consists in marketers, small business owners and agencies, so make sure your approach is suitable for these types of professionals.
The 12 Commandments of writing on Bannersnack’s blog:
- Write from an objective point of view and and give valuable how-to information to the ones reading your article
- Concentrate on actionable tips and useful advice about the topic you’re writing about
- Use a friendly tone of voice. People getting to our blog want to learn something but at the same time not feel like they’re back in high school reading textbooks
- Articles should be no less than 1500 words and no longer than 3000
- Articles should be original and shouldn’t have been published anywhere else before
- The title shouldn’t be longer than 60 characters
- Include a brief bio about the author and Twitter handle
- Include relevant, high quality photos in your article and make sure to give credits if it’s the case
- When quoting other authors, cite your sources
- Submit articles in Microsoft Word format or as a link to a Google Doc (make sure that you give permission to edit the article)
- Photos must be submitted as attachments or Zip
- We know the importance of links and that’s why we don’t want to put a limit on that, but don’t go rogue on us.
The first step is submitting a draft.
We will inform you if it has been accepted for publication within a week of receiving your e-mail and we’ll set a deadline together.
After that you can send your article whenever within two days before the publishing date.
We consider this partnership a continuous one, so after publishing your article on our blog we will ask you to share it on your Social Media accounts and keep track of the comments on your article.
