Do you know how to save money when shopping? Do you have budgeting tips?
We are looking for guest posts covering all aspects of saving money, finding deals, making money, and budgeting. We cover a wide range of topics and welcome anyone to submit a guest post. We have certain requirements for our guest writers:
Posts should be at least 1,000 words in length. We find this is a sweet spot with our readership, and you’ll fit in with the rest of our blog this way. Longer is good, too.
Break up your content, so it’s easy to read. This means including headings, subheadings, bullets, and any other visual elements to increase the readability of your piece.
Write in a natural, conversational tone. We want to share content that is authoritative, but not robotic. We’re producing blog content — not Wikipedia pages, so don’t shy away from showing off your sense of humor.
All content MUST BE ORIGINAL. We do not accept duplicate or syndicated content as guest posts. If your post has appeared anywhere else on the web, we can’t publish it on our blog. If you quote other content, link to it. If you guest post with us then repost somewhere else, your post will be removed.
Always name your sources. We understand that you’re an expert, but our audience might not be so sure. If you’re going to drop some stats link back to the original source.
A link to your site is allowed (1 link). Your website must be complete, have relevant content, and have a good amount of traffic.
Other Things to Include in Your Guest Post
- Statistics. Research shows that 94 percent of people are 53 percent more likely to believe content that’s supported by 26 percent more data. (Okay, that’s made up. But try to include verifiable first or third party research, statistics, and data in your post.)
- Outbound Links. Does somebody else have a great point of view on a topic? Want to make sure people know a certain definition of a word or concept? Link to it. Make sure these links are to authoritative sites. Only link to your site if it’s a highly relevant blog post.
- Lists and Bullets. We’re fans. Readers are fans. Most people skim articles until they find the value. Bullet points make this easy.
- Actionable Takeaways. Recap the takeaways of your article as bullet points at the end of your post.
- Infographics & images. It's always better to include some visual aids in a post.
