How Can You Become a Contributor?
To become a regular contributor, here are some tips that will help you to obtain a guest account and get your article(s) accepted and published:
- Read and follow the rules.
- Apply for an account using the form at the bottom of the page.
- Write content that is solely focused on quality and helping readers. No ads.
- Article Quality: Articles should be a minimum of 400 words (2000+ is recommended for getting the most exposure on search engines) and should cover the topic in detail. Quality is one of the the biggest considerations for accepting guest posts. To connect with our audience, tell a story whenever possible. Readers love stories that have a lesson buried in them.
- Write an Original Article: Please do not submit the same article you have submitted to other sites.
- Get Pre Approval: We recommend getting in touch to finalize the topic or sending us the outline of your content to avoid writing on a subject matter that won't be accepted.
- Check Your Grammar: Check your article with a tool like Grammarly Pro. Beyond grammar and spelling, be aware that telling stories to make your point is one of the best way to connect with your audience.
- Credit: We respect individual work, and if your idea is derivative of someone else’s work, feel free to give them credit. The same goes for images that you use on your post. Please give credit where credit is due.
- Images & Video: Images speak a thousand words. Add images to convey your message, but don’t add them just for the sake of it. If you are writing tutorials, take a screenshot.
- Set a Featured Image: Each article requires a minimum of one image set as the featured image. We will find an appropriate one or you can supply one with an aspect ratio of 1024x512.
- No Copyright Infringements: Please DO NOT use Google search to find images as including random images you find on the web is likely to result in copyright infringement. Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels are good sites to find free images.
- IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT LINKS: Links will most likely be removed or marked nofollow during the editing process unless they point to an authoritative source (such as a university or government site, not your personal blog or product landing page). You will be banned if we deem that you are submitting guest posts primarily for advertising purposes.
- You WILL get a chance to build a brand for yourself by contributing a post, and you can add your social and website link in your author profile to help drive traffic back to your site. Deliver value to our readers, and you can develop a genuine following.
