  • Any topic that doesn't align with our niche - like 'mobile marketing', 'email marketing' etc.

How to pitch?

Your mail must include:

  • 3 title suggestions (the headlines should be attention-grabbing)
  • Your bio – a short description of what you do
  • At least 3 written samples (preferably on the kind of topics we cover)

Send this email with the subject line “I have a guest post for you” to editor@socialpilot.co.

Your topic has been selected. What next?

Before you begin writing the piece, go through the below-mentioned instructions carefully.

General instructions

  • The piece should consist of 1500 or more words.
  • Write in American English.
  • Keep all the paragraphs short – 4 sentences at the maximum
  • Keep the tone conversational – more of ‘I’ and ‘you’
  • Use bucket brigades – they ensure that the piece is easy-to-scan
  • Avoid using jargons
  • Break the points into subheadings and bullet points
  • Add visuals – graphs, images, screenshots, videos etc.
  • Use data wherever you can – statistics help substantiate your points better

Formatting

  • The headline and subheadings should be in bold
  • Keep the font type and size consistent throughout the piece
  • Include a distinct introduction and conclusion

Links

  • All links to external resources must be relevant and not just your promotional links.
  • You can ask us to add a do-follow link (we allow one do-follow link only in the author's bio)

Visuals

We love visuals and examples! Hence, your piece must include visuals and examples.

  • Visuals must be relevant to the point being covered
  • Visuals must be explained – we don’t wish to leave our readers confused
  • If you wish to include a video, provide us with its ‘embed’ link
  • All visuals must be of high quality – 830 × 460
  • All visuals must be sent to us in a ZIP file along with the piece

Checks

Before submitting your piece, run it for:

  • Grammatical errors
  • Plagiarism – content copied from somewhere will be rejected immediately

Author's Bio

  • Send us your bio along with the piece – a short description of what you do
  • Your headshot
  • Links to all your social media profiles

Note:

Please send the final article as a Google doc - makes it easier for us to edit and give feedback.

We reserve the right to:

  • Remove links that we find to be promotional
  • Make edits for better readability

Please ensure that your piece is original and hasn’t been published anywhere.

We dislike repetition.

Our readers are constantly looking for something new. Hence, your idea and content must be unique - one that we haven’t covered already.

You’re all set.

Submit your article to editor@socialpilot.co.

Let’s provide our readers some great content to look forward to.
