Rules & Guidelines Of Guest Posting

Interested in submitting an article, blog post to InfoTech APB? Check out the guidelines below and, if you think you’re a good fit, fill out the Guest Blogger Application.

Here are our guidelines for Guest Posting:

Please read the following guidelines very carefully. If you pitch a topic that isn’t relevant to our readers, or if there are any typos in your application form, your application will be deleted.

Please use the Search box at the top of the page to make sure your topic has not already been covered.

Content

  1. Include a headline.
  2. Avoid long introductions; get straight to the point.
  3. Posts are typically 600-1800 words in length, but longer or shorter ones will be considered.
  4. Include an author bio, including details on your expertise that make it clear why your opinion on the topic should count to readers.
  5. Preference will be given to original posts which have not previously been published.
  6. We do not accept stories that have been submitted simultaneously to other publications. In rare instances, we will consider previously published articles, but please disclose if that’s the case.
  7. Guest posts may be self-promotional or include marketing links, as long the content is educational. I reserve the right to remove excessive links or any links that appear spammy.
  8. Please submit your story to only one guest-post address at a time. (See above for the options.)
  9. Please do not send any press releases, interview requests, or news tips to our guest-post addresses. Send at info@infotechapb.com. Or use the InfoTech APB Guest Post Submission Form.
  10. Once I have agreed to publish your post, I ask that you don’t publish it anywhere else online, including on your own website or blog, for at least six months. You are both welcome and encouraged to reprint an excerpt from the article along with a link back to this blog.

Editing

All guest posts must be grammatically correct and free of spelling errors. We reserve the right to make minor edits not affecting the content of the post without notifying you.

Marketing

  1. Once your post has been published, I will publicize it on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, Instagram, and my Google Business Page, and send it to my email list. It will also be publicized randomly as long as it remains on the blog. Your post will remain on the blog as long as the content remains relevant.
  2. I will email you a link to your post, and I expect you to share it on any social media sites where you have accounts, on your website, and/or in your newsletter.
  3. Please take the time to reply to comments you receive about your article on InfoTech APB.

  2. A bullet point list of key points the story would cover
