Step 3: Blogger approval
Next, please email links to at least 3 writing/blog samples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A good guideline for samples:
- There needs to be a clear indication on each sample that you are the writer.
- All posts must be related to social media or digital marketing.
- All posts must be edited for grammar and spelling.
If you’re approved, continue on to Step 4.
Step 4: Add posts to our system manually
To submit your post, log into the site, hover over “Posts” in the nav bar, and click “Add New”
We ask that all posts created directly on our site (if they were created specifically for us) be provided to us on an exclusive basis for a minimum of 14 days after the post is completed, and that the author honors this exclusive time frame even if we do not publish your post immediately.
Guidelines For Posts
Editing: Please ensure all spelling and grammar is accurate. Posts must be well-thought, professional, and thoroughly edited.
Topics: Appropriate topics include informational, news, or experience posts directly relating to social media or digital marketing. No posts will be accepted that contain self, organization, or product promotional/marketing material. All content must be original and not posted elsewhere.
Links: All links should be reliably sourced and critical to the content. If a quote or backlink does not significantly improve the content of your article or is promotional, we WILL remove the links and post the article without them. Contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in this type of article.
