Hi there, looks like you are interested to guest post on Uberchord’s blog?
Well, here is what you can do…
Know Our Audience?
Our audience consists of people of all ages and demographics from across the world, from beginner guitar players (majority) to intermediate to professional guitar players to people who randomly drop by our website while looking for cat GIFs. Our goal is to provide practical but thoughtful information that goes well beyond the basics of guitar playing and music theory.
Content is King!
We believe in publishing posts that are top quality and well explained (you’d agree nothing special here, everyone expects the same). This means our posts must be well researched (the least we expect) with enough hands-on tips, including images and screenshots explaining any exercises and techniques along with examples from around the web to back up advice in the form of videos or images (the most we expect).
Length: We like our posts anywhere between 700 and 1,000 words approximately, depending on the topic of the post.
Images: Don’t forget to include at least couple of reference images, especially if you’re referencing music theory and guitar exercises. Screen shots are welcome if they are clear (make sure you are not infringing any copyrights, lawsuits are very expensive and we are just a start-up).
Search: We like our traffic the way we like our fruits: Organic!
We like to be smart about Google SEO and search, and recommend using a keyword analysis tool.
Credit: Give credit to get credit – always give credit to all sources, references, facts, and figures you use.
Humour: Feel free to brush up your joke skills. We always like to inject a healthy dose of humour into everything we do.
Freeway to Success!
Here are few things you can do just right:
a) Check our blog before hand to make sure we haven’t covered your topic already. Make sure your guest post is something relevant and unique for our readers.
b) Research on our previous posts to understand the voice and tone of our posts. Even if the post is directed towards intermediate or expert guitar players, it should still be easy for anyone to read and understand.
c) Our best kept secret: research your keyword/phrase on Google and examine the Top 5 results – what makes them successful, what can you learn form them and how you can fill in the gap with your content.
d) As they say “the best place to hide a dead body is Page 2 of Google search results. We don’t wish to do that.
On Getting Published
Nobody likes a copycat, right? It goes without saying that the content has to be original and exclusive for us. We wish to reserve the rights to edit and adapt your guest blog content as we see fit for our audience (that is just fair). We even wish to reserve the right to update it in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness (that is also just fair). In any of the cases above, the author will always remain you, don’t worry.
We are scheduling posts at least two weeks in advance, so please submit your posts in time. On the day your post runs, we’ll promote the post through our social networks and we encourage you to do the same.
