Guest Post Content Tips
We want to share educational, engaging, and entertaining content, not product-focused or promotional. We don’t push products or services on our customers that we don’t believe in ourselves.
We may elect to install affiliate links at our discretion. In addition, add (non-competitive content) relating to one of our web properties, internal links, graphics/imagery, and the like.
Guest Posting Guidelines.
- Posts should be at least 1500+ words long; quality content trumps quantity content. However, longer is great, too, and has obvious benefits. If you need more words to explain your subject, go for it. Write for people, NOT just for search engines.
- Slocum Studio reserves the right to add content to your post. Content submitted and published by Slocum Studio is content owned by Slocum Studio.
- We allow for one or two do-follow links. Depending on the quality of the post and who is writing the post. Non-competing links (see below). We allow links that reference statistics, studies, etc.; see below.
- Make your content easy to read by placing headings, subheadings, bullets, and other visual elements to increase your readability posts.
- We want to share content that is authoritative and interesting.
- Personalizing it with some humor is good and keeps it tasteful.
- All content MUST BE ORIGINAL; you must link to it if you quote other content. No plagiarism and no syndicated content are allowed. If you are using a.i., be sure to humanize the content.
- If you refer to content, i.e., studies, stats, or the like, name your sources or link back to the source.
- Back up your subject matter with facts. Take screenshots. Include interesting data, images, or graphics. Support your arguments with external references.
- Please be sure to check your spelling and grammar.
- We do not allow a link back to sites competing in the same vertical as us. So, tell us where the link is going.
- We ask that you link to (3) of our blog articles in your post.
- Don’t overdo it with links! Linking to statistics or how-to is cool, but not to unrelated websites.
- All graphics or images must be owned by you or licensed for use on the blog post.
- Please submit a FEATURED IMAGE with your content. Please make it 1500 pixels by 1000 pixels 72 DPI Jpeg.
You can submit your write-up via a Google Doc and share it with us.
