Submit A Guest Post

Thank you for your interest in contributing to the blog! I’m more than happy to welcome new writers with fresh perspectives to the table, but before submitting your guest post, there are a few guidelines and suggestions for getting your post accepted at My Social Game Plan.

WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE

  • Increased influence and authority in the digital marketing space.
  • Guest posts will be featured on our home page.
  • Posts will potentially be re-published on Business2Community and/or Social Media Today, allowing you to reach a larger audience.
  • Promotion to my email subscribers and social media followers.
  • Two to three backlinks in your author byline and backlinks within the body of your guest post, if the links are very relevant to the content of your post and overall context of My Social Game Plan. Whether these will be do-follow or no-follow is up to my discretion.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS

For search engine ranking reasons, guest blog posts published here may not be re-published elsewhere, unless otherwise agreed upon. This applies only to blog posts. If you would like to reuse the basic premise of content of your post in a video, eBook, etc., that’s no problem.

READER AUDIENCE

The audience of My Social Game Plan is small business owners who need practical, budget-conscious strategies, tips, and tools to implement social media marketing into their businesses. These are people who need help with staying organized (content and editorial calendars), understanding their target audience, producing compelling social media content, measuring the ROI of their efforts, and so on.

They’re primarily people short on time, with low marketing budgets, and they need to see marketing results as quickly as possible.

GUEST POST LENGTH

While I don’t enforce a specific word count, I find that most valuable blog posts land in the range of 600+ words. Write the amount that need to share a compelling message.
