There’s nothing worse than getting a pitch that doesn’t follow our guidelines.
We only respond to pitches we accept.
If we like your idea, you’ll know within a week. We’re a small, but busy team, so follow-up emails are ignored.
Make sure we haven’t already covered your topic before.
If you can’t check to see if we’ve covered a topic before, we’ll assume you can’t research and write a good post.
If your post was written before you pitched us, we will not publish it.
We want new content written just for our audience. We don’t accept syndicated articles.
If we accept your idea and you blow your deadline, your post won’t be published.
If you need an extension, let us know at least a day or two ahead of time. We’ll work something out.

Who Do You Write For?
Your Post Must Be Comprehensive
Your post needs to cover its topic in full with no missing details.
Your Post Must Be Actionable
People don’t want to know what to do. They want to know how to do it. Be specific. Explain what the reader should do, step-by-step.
Your Post Must Be at Least 2,000 Words
Yes, we all know long-form content tends to rank better in the SERPs, but that’s not why we ask require the above length. If you want to go deep on a subject, be prepared to talk about it at length.
You Must Propose a Target Keyword
It doesn’t necessarily need to have high search volume. It just needs to be aligned with your topic and relevant to our audience.
Your Final Post Has to Follow Through on Your Pitch
If you tell us you’re going to write 9 strategies and you only give 5, we won’t publish your post.
