Guest posts are welcome on the Webbiquity blog. Contact me (Tom) at tom(at)tompick.com with submissions or questions.
NOTE: Due to changes in the way Google views guest posts, we’ve had to tighten our criteria here. Guest posts are still accepted, but if you aren’t a friend or at least a friend-of-a-friend, submissions and pitches will be scrutinized very closely. Thanks for understanding.
Just a few simple rules:
- Posts must be of interest and value to the readers here (senior marketers and PR professionals, some agency types, b2b technology marketers, online marketing specialists, a smattering of CEOs).
- Posts must be informational, not promotional. Generally avoid the use of “I,” “we” and “our.”
- Posts must be professionally written (level of information presented, grammar, etc.).
- Post authorship must be attributable to a real person, and include a short “about the author” bio.
- Links in the text are fine, just keep them reasonable.
- We reserve the right to make minor text and link edits.
- Posts must be original and not previously published elsewhere.
- You are welcome to include an accompanying image, just make sure you’re not violating copyright.
- You retain copyright of the post, but we ask that you not republish it elsewhere for at least three weeks after it’s published on Webbiquity.
- We reserve the right to reject any post which doesn’t meet the standards of Webbiquity.
There are also just a few things to avoid, which apply to outreach to pretty much any blogger. If you want to make sure you don’t get published, do these things:
- Address your email to “Editor,” “Hi there” or something else other than my name.
- Send a rude, demanding, or just plain really poorly written message.
- Include an unsolicited attachment (these emails won’t even get opened—too much phishing going on).
