GUEST POST GUIDELINES

Thanks for your interest in contributing to StilyoApps! 

 

We’re teaming up with some of the best minds in the world of eCommerce and digital marketing to educate entrepreneurs on how to build better businesses. 

 

By partnering together, we want to showcase your thought leadership while promoting your brand as a trusted resource in your space.

 

With that in mind, here are some guidelines and recommendations for each piece of content that you submit.

List of Desired Blog Post Themes and Topics

In general, posts we accept for guest content fall under the following themes:

 

  • Conversion optimization

  • Customer retention

  • Operations & Customer service

  • Ecommerce growth strategies

  • Ecom shipping & fulfillment

  • Ecom strategy & analytics

  • Ecom branding & design

  • Entrepreneurship, productivity & personal growth

  • Marketing tips, guides, how to’s, and advice for store owners

 

While brainstorming what to write about, ask yourself these questions:

 

  • Will this topic be relevant to the StilyoApps audience?

  • Will this post offer solutions (that don’t require the purchase of my product)?

  • What insight can I bring to this topic that nobody else can?

 

If in doubt, get in touch with me at content@stilyoapps.com

 

Guest Post Content Tips

The guiding principle of our blog is to share content that’s educational, engaging, and entertaining … not product-focused or promotional.

 

Use our blog to showcase your expertise with potential new customers. If people find your content valuable, they’ll look you up on their own.

 

Here are some general guidelines:

 

  • Posts should be 1,000 – 1,500+ words in length. At this length, your content will fit in with the rest of our blog. Of course, you can always go longer if you like.

 

  • Break up your content, so it’s easy to read. Include 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. A dash of humor here and there is ok too.

 

  • All content MUST BE ORIGINAL. We don’t accept duplicate or syndicated content as guest posts. If your post exists anywhere else on the web, we won’t be able to publish it on our blog.

 

  • Outbound Links. Please feel free to include one link to your website and one link to a social media platform. If you’re linking to other websites (to explain a definition, expand on a point) please ensure they’re highly authoritative.

 

  • Screenshots, Quotes & Stats: Back up your arguments as much as possible. Where you quote another source/blog, please link to it. Visual elements like screenshots, charts, and quotes are always welcome. 

 

NOTE: *Stilyoapps reserves full editorial control and may edit or tweak submissions as we see fit. These tweaks include anything from removing too much self-promotion to optimizing for SEO, edits both small and large, and more.

How it Works

 

  • First, we’ll collaborate and agree on a topic and title. Don’t start writing until we’ve done this!

 

  • Once we’ve agreed on the topic, give us a deadline for when you expect to submit the article for us to review.

 

  • After you’ve written your draft, send it to me as a Google Doc. Use these sharing settings:

    • On – Anyone with the link;

    • Access – Can edit.

 

  • I’ll make edits in this Doc, so make a copy if you’d like to keep an original version of your writing.

 

  • Send a short, 2 sentence bio. This can include a link to a social media profile and/or your website.

 

  • I’ll let you know when the post is scheduled to go live!

 

Guest Post Promotion

Please feel free to promote your post through your social media, newsletter, or link to it from your blog.

 

You can even include a snippet of the post on your blog, with a link back to the original content on our site (this is essential so that we both avoid duplicate content penalties).
