Successful guest entries are extensive, data-driven and interesting messages that teach us something new about the world of social media. We publish for entrepreneurs, marketing staff/managers and communication staff/managers, how small and medium-sized companies can use social media channels and social media platforms to achieve their business goals.
Our articles cover channels such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouYube, Snapchat, Pinterest, and Periscope. Also, platform tools, for example, creating images, track analytics, social video and dashboard solutions.
We're also interested in publishing any side topic that our readers care about, which includes things like hiring, team development, job hunting, writing, design and larger internet trends, as long as it is related to social media.
Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that's been published elsewhere;
The article reflects the writing style/tone of the social media blog. We aim to be casual, yet helpful, and typically we stay away from buzzwords and jargon;
Proper attribution of data and quotations;
No more than one link to your company's website in the body of the post. (The link must be relevant to the subject at hand, and does not point to your main URL, a product landing page, or to content that is behind a lead generator).
However, we're happy to consider any post which will provide a genuine benefit for our readers.
Anything that's been covered on our blog before. Please do a search of our site before submitting your articles;
Anything that may be construed as a link-building scheme;
Anything that's too promotional for your company or organization;
Anything that's offensive or inaccurate;
Anything that's overly critical of individuals or companies.
We accept only individual writers (not a company, content teams). We prefer content from practicing social media marketers who have in-depth knowledge of social media rather than a general base of online marketing knowledge;
Your writing should demonstrate that you’re able to offer unique, tactical insights based upon your hands-on experience; posts that offer tutorials on tools, step-by-step how-tos for using channel features, walkthroughs for executing tactics, etc.
Note! Due to the volume of requests we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions. Sorry about that!
What we don't want to say but have to...
