How to start posting on Vehom Blogs?
Hello, and thank you for showing interest in Vehom Blogs. We’re happy to have you here!
If you’re skilled in writing and want to share your digital marketing knowledge with fellow marketers, growth hackers, and business owners, we want to hear from you!
We’re constantly seeking talented bloggers to join our team. Before you hit that submit button, let’s pause for a moment and go through this entire page. We’ve put together all the information you might need to answer any questions you have about:
- Our guest blogging principles
- The types of content we can (and cannot) accept
- How the submission process works
- Where to submit your guest post idea
Please note: We really appreciate all the pitches we receive from you. However, because we get so many requests, we may not be able to respond to every submission. If your pitch fits what we’re currently looking for and we have space in our editorial calendar, you’ll definitely hear back from us.
We want to be upfront with you – Vehom can’t promise that your blog post will be published.
Our editorial team carefully evaluates all pitches, taking into account various factors like how well a topic aligns with our site structure and focus areas, its SEO potential, and its relevance to our audience.
Unfortunately, because we receive a high volume of pitches, we can’t assure you that we’ll be able to publish your post, even if it meets our editorial criteria.
Our mission is to provide the best and most relevant educational digital marketing content to our audiences. However, we can’t promise that your submitted post will be published. Our evaluation is primarily based on how well a post fits our target audience and the potential impact of the topic. We don’t offer guaranteed publication, even for Vehom customers, partners, or previous blog authors.
To get published, submissions must meet our quality standards. Vehom has specific criteria for the types of blog posts we accept, and our editors reserve the right to decline contributions that don’t meet our editorial standards.
If your article is published on the Vehom Blog, we encourage you to share it with your network and provide links to it. However, as per our Content Usage Guidelines, you cannot republish the article on any other website, including your own site or platforms like LinkedIn and Medium. Additionally, we can’t accept guest articles that have already been published elsewhere.
Just so you know, the Vehom content team holds the final say on all content decisions. This means that:
- We can edit and adjust your guest blog content for things like search engine optimization (SEO), accuracy, completeness, and to keep it up-to-date if the information becomes outdated or needs reevaluation.
- We may add call-to-action promoting Vehom content and offers within your guest post, such as downloadable e-books and guides.
- Your guest author photo might be used across our content, like on Vehom’s social media and in email newsletters.
- In some cases, we may remove the post from the blog if necessary.
Here’s what we expect for every post we publish on Vehom:
We have several blog categories: Digital Marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Social Media, Ads, Content, Email, Analytics, Influencer, Affiliate, Video, Mobile, and Ecommerce.
Successful guest contributions are in-depth, data-rich, and have a unique personality. They should aim to teach our readers something new about the world of digital marketing.
Here’s what we’re on the lookout for:
- Original ideas, persuasive arguments, and top-notch writing. We won’t publish anything that’s already been out there.
- Articles that match the writing style and tone of our blog. We aim to be friendly and approachable, avoiding jargon.
- Make sure to give proper credit when you use data, quotes, or content from external sources in your article.
- Note: All data should be no older than 2 years.
- Limit to just 1 backlink to your company’s website in the body of your post.
- Include links to at least 3-5 relevant Vehom blog posts within your article.
We’re open to 2 main types of blog posts:
Experiment / Analysis: Did you recently conduct a marketing experiment or analyze data that uncovered valuable insights? Share it with us! These posts should feature cited data, actionable insights, and step-by-step explanations in your experiment or analysis. We want readers to have enough information to replicate your study if they want to.
Canonical: These posts provide readers with in-depth, practical takeaways supported by recent examples, original quotes, original graphics, and up-to-date data. By the time readers finish this type of post, they should be well-equipped to take action on the topic and have very few questions left on how to do it.
Here are the types of posts we won’t accept:
- Repetitive Content: If it’s already been covered on our blog, we can’t publish it again. Please do a quick site search before submitting your articles.
- Link-Building Schemes: We’re not interested in anything that might look like an attempt to manipulate links.
- Excessive Self-Promotion: Avoid content that’s overly promotional for your own company or organization.
- Inaccurate or Offensive Material: We won’t publish anything that’s factually incorrect or offensive.
- Negative Critiques: Our blog isn’t the place to air grievances or be overly critical of individuals or companies.
Here are some formatting tips to make your blog post shine:
- Use Headings: Create H2s, H3s, and H4s to organize your content for easy readability.
- Keep Paragraphs Brief: Limit paragraphs to no more than 3 sentences each.
- Utilize Bulleted Lists: Whenever possible, use bulleted lists to break down information.
- Numbered Lists: If you need to create a numbered list, format it as number + period.
- Include Intro and Conclusion: Always provide an introduction to set the stage and a conclusion to wrap up your points.
- Image Attribution: If you use images from other sources, cite the source as “Image source” and hyperlink that text to the image’s original page.
- Check Spelling and Grammar: Before submitting, copy and paste your post into Grammarly or Microsoft Word and run a spell check.
- Improve Clarity: Consider using Hemingway Editor to identify and correct run-on sentences and complex sentence structures for better clarity.
