Guest Posting Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in the Graphene Digital blog! We love guest posts because they allow us to provide a diverse range of topics and expert insights for our readers. We do, however, get a lot of requests, and we can't accept them all! But these guidelines will give you the best chances of success.

About the Graphene Digital blog

The Graphene Digital blog is an authoritative and friendly resource for advertisers, agencies, business owners, marketers, and students looking to improve or learn in the digital marketing and advertising space.

We publish a wide variety of high-quality content related to online marketing, search engine optimization, and website design.

How to pitch to us

We love guest posts, but we do get many requests on a daily basis. As such, Graphene Digital only accepts posts that are timely, accurate, actionable, original, and resonate with our audience. Here are some best practices that will help us to respond to you faster and, if your topic is a go, get it published sooner.

1. Familiarize with the Graphene Digital blog

Please read a few posts in full, and then do some skimming and exploring to get a feel for our tone, topics, and basic format (lots of headings and subheadings, short paragraphs, images, etc.)

2. Check to see if we’ve covered your topic already

If we have, we may still be interested if you can offer something more up-to-date or approach it with a fresh angle or different perspective. The best way to see if we've covered your topic is to do a site search on Google:

This google search is your best friend. (Don't include the brackets in your actual search).

3. Compile your email

Here's what to include:

  • A little about yourself: What experience or expertise will you be drawing from in your post?
  • Proposed ideas: Topic ideas are good, but title ideas are great!
  • Writing samples: Please link to at least one existing publication. 

Guest post requirements

No previously published, sponsored, or overly promotional content!

  • Length: 1,500 words minimum
  • Quality: original, actionable, organized, and accurate! 
  • Backlinks: no more than 3 per post
  • Short bio: 1-3 sentences, can include links to your website or social accounts.
  • Images: Please provide images every 2-300 words (where possible).
    • Images should add value! Use screenshots, graphs, charts, visuals, etc. 
    • Cite the image source (under each image).

The process

We get a large volume of guest pitches, so please be patient with us!

  1. Pitch response: If your pitch is chosen, we'll do our best to respond within 24 hours. Please follow up in one week if you haven't heard from us. 
  2. Once you've heard from us with a positive response, its time to get drafting!
  3. Draft: If the draft does not meet our quality standards (i.e., it cannot be improved without heavy edits or indicates lack of depth of knowledge on the subject), we will let you know that we cannot move forward with the post. If the draft does meet our quality standards, we'll move on to editing.
  4. Edits: We will edit the content to align with our standards. If we need anything on your end— a better quality image, a change to a section, or further elaboration on something, we'll let you know.
  5. Publishing: Depending on the level of edits needed and our content calendar needs, your post could get published anywhere from 2-4 days after you've submitted it. This can be longer if we are backlogged.
