Blogging Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in guest blogging for OptiMonk! 🙂

Before diving into the details, consider reading some of our recent articles to develop a sense of what we publish and how we write.

Our ideal readers are online marketers of small and medium-sized companies and ecommerce site owners. We are looking for posts that teach and give value to them. Address their needs, fears, challenges, burning questions, pain points.

Guest blogs should:

  • Be 100% original and not published anywhere else.
  • Be well-written, clear, interesting, and helpful.
  • Provide attribution for all data or statistics cited with a hyperlink.
  • Not be self-promotional.
  • Not include more than two links to your company’s website in the body of the post.
  • Be at least 1000 words.
  • Be practical and actionable.
  • Use a friendly voice.
  • Include many examples (with screenshots). 
  • Not include stock photos. 
  • Be optimized for the right keywords. (We suggest using Surfer SEO.) 
  • Include an author bio with a headshot. (This is a great place to include any promotional link.)

Supporting images, interactive content, or videos: Don’t worry about the cover image, we’ll take care of that. But if you have a suggestion, send us a high res image.

  • Images (PNG, JPG): Provide any high res images you would like to include within your Word doc.
  • Infographics, videos, and interactive content: Include the embed code for the infographic within your Word doc.

Please keep in mind that if your article doesn’t meet our requirements, we won’t publish it.
