If you would like to submit a guest post for consideration on Growing Your Biz, here are a few points you should keep in mind:
What am I looking for?
The posts on Growing Your Biz are practical and well-researched, and guest posts are no exception. Guest posts should be on topics relevant to small and home-based business owners and offer useful tips, resources, or other insights on running a business. Acceptable guest post topics include: business management, business growth and development, Internet marketing, off-line marketing, ecommerce, and business finance.
Which submissions will be rejected outright?
Save my time and yours… Please no spun, spammy, or overly promotional pieces! If you are working for an Internet marketing agency on behalf of a client, and have “a team of writers that can provide me with quality content,” then realize that your email will be heading straight for the delete folder (unless you can give me a really compelling reason to do otherwise).
You can write about a topic that has been covered on other sites, but for the post to be included here it has to be thorough and useful to my readers at a level that surpasses the standard cookie-cutter writing found elsewhere. I am also picky when it comes to the quality of the writing itself. If you don’t make the effort to do a spell and grammar check before submitting the piece, then I won’t make the effort to consider it. Finally, submissions should be unique and exclusive to Growing Your Biz; posts that have been published elsewhere will not be accepted.
How long should a guest post submission be?
I don’t typically accept posts that are less than 500 words. Most posts on this site tend to be between 600 to 800 words long.
Will I link to your site?
You can include a 2 to 3 sentence author’s bio at the end of your post that will include up to two “do-follow” links back to your site. But, note that I may reject your post if the links are to a site of low quality or they are unrelated to the topic of the post.
When will your submission be published?
I am a very busy person, and I may not be able to let you know if a post was rejected. I know this may be frustrating if you are waiting to hear back. But if your post is accepted, I will let you know within 7 days and will tell you when it will be published.
***Please note: I reserve the right to edit your post so that it fits the tone of this site, and I offer no monetary compensation for published submissions
