The Invoicebeta guest post program is specifically designed for experts interested in publishing articles on our blog. Would you like to contribute to Invoiicebeta Blog? We’d love to have you. We do our best to publish a wide variety of thoughts on the best news and topics in the small business, entrepreneurship, and freelancer world.
The guidelines might change with time, but so far this is what we request. We realize the list is long, but it is essential in order to avoid misunderstandings and time-wasting down the road. We respect your time and effort, and this is a good way to ensure neither is wasted.
The guest posts need to be related to businesses, entrepreneurship, freelancing, bookkeeping, invoicing, or accounting topics, as that is what this blog is about. We delete all requests for posts on unrelated topics, links to essay sites, and paid links. So save us both some time and don’t email us with these.
- Your post must be original and must not have been published before on the web.
- You agree to not publish the post anywhere else for 3 months after it is published on this blog, to maintain its uniqueness.
- You may include two links in the byline, which will be displayed in the post, and one link inside the post linking back to your blog/ content.
- Please include a bio, so readers can get to know you better, and add your Twitter handle or Facebook page if you have one. Your own picture would be nice, but it is optional.
- Please send in an accompanying image that is relevant to the post, and is not so heavy that I have to resize it.
- Please ensure that the post is well-edited, readable, and written in good English.
- Talk about the guest post at your blog and on Twitter or any other social media, so the post you write gets comments from your regular readers. I’ll do the same, but I’ll notice if you do not make any effort to promote your own post.
- Stick to a word count of up from 300 to 1500 words to ensure that you hold the readers’ attention. A well-thought-out title would attract more visitors, which is after all this is all about: providing you more exposure.
- Ensure that you’re available to interact with readers who comment on your post.
- Make sure to include the author byline at the bottom, with the link to your website, twitter links, etc. already formatted.
- Make sure the paragraphs are short, for easy reading. Bullet points welcome.
- Use headings and sub-headings in the Guest Post.
- Before you submit a guest post, please check with us about the topic, etc, so we can tell you if it has been covered recently, or is not relevant to the website. This should be done at least a month before you want the post to appear.
- We don’t support overt advertisements unless it is to promote an author’s book that is relevant to our blog.
- You can send the post to us using via [email protected] in .doc format.
- Usually, within 2-3 days of receiving it, we’ll reply stating what date the post will be up.
- The guest post should be with us at least four days before the date of publication, so we can schedule it correctly, and we run it by you, to check everything looks right.
- We would mostly feature regular followers of my blog or authors we have interacted with before, so any outside blog tours must discuss a possible guest post or interview with us about a week in advance.
We’ll make exceptions to some of these guidelines as and when necessary, but that depends entirely on the circumstances. Any questions, tweet at us @invoicebeta.
