Guest Post Guidelines


Published: | By Stephanie Strong

Hello and thank you for your interest in guest posting on POWr. We are excited you want to contribute to helping small businesses grow online.

Due to the high volume of requests we receive we have decided to include requirements for submitting an article to post. *Submitting an article does not guarantee you will be posted on the blog.

Here are a few guidelines and requirements to help you make submitting your article successful:

Write for our audience:

The readers of POWr’s blog are typically small business owners. We refer to small business owners as POWr heroes because they truly are the hero in their businesses, and also local and even global economies. They are business owners who typically:

  • Sell physical products they make or source, both online and in-store
  • Sell services like consulting or online courses
  • Dropship products online

or are agencies and freelancers who build websites for their clients.

Be sure that the content you are writing is targeting one of these groups of POWr heroes. You will need to select who you are writing for in the submittal form. Your content may be beneficial to all of these categories, however, please focus in on only one.

Address what our readers care about:

POWr heroes run everything in their business from inventory to sales to marketing to finance. There are a wide range of topics you could write about, however, to be accepted for the POWr blog you must address a specific concern that most of our readers have. These are:

  • Increasing traffic
  • Generating leads
  • Increasing conversion rates and sales
  • Supporting their customers
  • Maximizing their time
  • Growing and scaling their business
  • Retaining current customers
  • Business management activities

While you may be writing about a marketing topic like SEO or another strategy, they must speak to one of these concerns and you will be required to select the concerns upon submittal.

Tie POWr into what you are speaking to:

We want to ensure readers understand the value of POWr to the technique you are writing about. While your blog does not need to focus specifically on POWr, it should mention how a POWr app helps with the solution. For example, if you are writing about SEO you could mention how POWr Gallery and POWr Slider let you put ALT Text on images.

Correctness, Performance, Readability, and Plagiarism:

The majority of our readers are English speaking. We require blogs to pass a certain level of performance and readability from free checkers, like Grammarly, to have your blog move to the next step in the review process. You will be required to upload screenshots of these upon submittal.

Here are some examples:

 

 

Plagiarism and duplicate postings will be cause for immediate rejection. You will be required to upload a plagiarism check screenshot similar to:

 

 

 

Links will be checked as the first step in the review process. Malicious links in a blog will result in the current and all future blog post requests being immediately rejected. We will not tolerate any malicious activity.

We look forward to reading your work and working together to help small businesses grow and learn.
