  • Make sure the content is easy to read and use short paragraphs, bullet points and lists.
  • We reserve the rights to make changes to your content where we see fit to align with our brand or to correct grammatical errors.

Formatting Your Posts

We would like you to include the following in your post:

  • A post title which is SEO optimized.
  • A post excerpt which is SEO optimized.
  • At least one image that you have permission to use. This should be high-quality and high-resolution, preferably a stock image that has been paid for.

We would like you to include an author bio in your post which features your picture and 2 or 3 sentences about who you are and what you do. You can also link to your website and social media profiles like this one:

Author Bio


  • Internal Links: We encourage you to link to other relevant posts on our blog inside your post.
  • External Links: We do allow you to link to other relevant posts and sites outside of our blog if they feature content that is relevant to your post and offers more detailed information on a topic you are briedly discussing. You can also link to tools and resources if they are useful to the reader and they have a lot of users and authority.

What we won’t allow is you to link to 3 or 4 of your client’s websites within the post and an effort to build links to their websites. If you want to promote a client then you will need to discuss a sponsored post with us.

Because we receive a lot of guest post submissions, we, unfortunately, don’t have the time to email everyone back. If you do not hear from us within 5 business days, it is safe to assume your blog post didn’t make the cut. Please do not keep submitting the same blog posts over and over.
