We’re always on the lookout for fresh perspectives and unique voices and we’re thrilled that you’re interested in collaborating with us on our blog to share your knowledge and bring more tips to our community. Thank you!
Read on for an overview of what we’re looking for and how you can successfully submit guest posts to our blog. And don’t forget to review our “Policies” for a detailed explanation of the requirements for a guest post on the BlogDash blog before you send us your submissions.
How to Submit a Guest Post to BlogDash
To submit a guest post to BlogDash blog, you can either:
1) Create a collaborator account on the blog: If you think you would like to contribute to the blog on a regular basis, we invite you to create a collaborator account (Click here to create your account). Your posts will be submitted directly to the site and will be added under your account name. Please note your submissions will be reviewed by our staff before going live on the blog in order to ensure that all posts respect our policies and provide value to our community.
2) Send us your posts by email: If you choose not to create an account, you can still send us your posts via email; however, it may take longer to process your submission and post it live on the site, so please be patient.
As you know, BlogDash is a Blogger Outreach Tool that provides Blogger Outreach Services. The posts you submit should be related to our niche. All posts that are off-topic or done solely for search engines will be rejected. So please, before investing your time writing a blog post, I recommend you to check out the different topic categories we’re interested in showcasing and decide if you feel comfortable creating an article that respects the theme of our blog.
There are several different categories and topics from which you can choose to write your guest post. These include:
Blog Marketing and Monetization
BlogDash Step-by-Step Education
Blogger Outreach Campaigns
Blogger Outreach Roundup
Business-to-Business Content Marketing
Business-to-Consumer Content Marketing
Guide to Blogger Outreach
Social Media Blogging
Write Your Post to Offer Value
Quality: Articles should be original, well-written, and well-researched. The purpose of the post should be informative. It should be done for the audience and MUST NOT read like an advertorial or promotional post. “Sponsored,” “commissioned,” or other similarly labeled posts WILL NOT be accepted. Ask yourself: when people read this post will it help them to market their brands better or find a solution to a problem? If you were the reader and came across this post, would you find it informative and interesting enough to read the article from start to finish?
Originality: Please make sure your post is an original submission and has not been published anywhere else. We all know search engines disapprove of duplicate content. Use your creativity as writers and make sure any previously published material is removed. We want to keep the blog fresh and engaging for our readers and we want to do that with new content from you!
Links: To create articles of substance you may or may not need to include some links where readers can be directed for extra information or to provide a reference for your discussion; however, in order to adhere to Google’s guidelines for guest blogging, articles that are clearly intended as a link-building scheme will be rejected. Please be thoughtful about any links you include in articles you submit for consideration and make sure that they add real value to your post for the readers.
Images: Add an image that matches with your post topic to make it more appealing. A well-chosen image can help catch a reader’s attention, and, let’s face it, it’s a little bit nicer to look at than a simple wall of text. (Attention: BlogDash is not responsible for images’ copyright).
Stay Focused: Keep your post on topic by focusing on its goal. For instance, if you’re writing about blogger outreach, make sure that your post deals specifically with the bloggers vs. brands relationship and/or blogger outreach in general. We accept comprehensive, high-quality original articles related to the various categories outlined earlier in this post. Choose a topic, decide on an angle you feel is interesting and relevant, and then stick to it.
Include a Bio: Write a short (1-2 sentence) author bio including a maximum of 1 anchor text link to your own website or any of your social media accounts. Remember, Google frowns upon guest blogging as a link-building technique.
Beware of Plagiarism: Be sure to include proper attribution of data, quotations, and other third-party content referenced in your article.
Post Submission: We reserve the right to publish or not publish your post. To avoid having your article rejected for publication, make sure to follow the suggestions outlined above and our policies on guest submissions (linked to at the beginning of this post). We will review all articles to determine whether they align with our content strategy and meet our editorial standards, so please be sure to avoid submitting poorly-written and/or off-topic posts.
Was your post approved and put live on the blog? Fantastic! Promote it on your Internet and social media channels (website, mailing list, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Delicious, etc.). We’ll promote it on our channels too. The more promotion the post gets the more value you get out of writing it as more readers will get to enjoy your work!
I hope this post has helped you to figure out how to submit a guest post to BlogDash successfully. If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact us.
