Submitting A Guest Post What You Need To Know

Want to write a guest post for the 10to8 blog? That’s great! We’re open to high-quality and relevant submissions to our B2B audience currently. However, first, we should warn you that the barrier to entry or acceptance, in this case, is high, very high for that matter. After all, have you seen the high standard of our blog? We’ve got a reputation to maintain.

Is this you?

Before you submit to us at 10to8, please ensure that the following statements are true and apply to you;

  • I have a reputable online presence, with a portfolio, which clearly demonstrates the quality of my past work; I’m not a spammer.
  • I’m not an SEO agency or SEO freelancer pushing content from a client’s website for the purpose of solely getting backlinks.
  • I have an excellent command of the English language and you will not find any grammatical and or spelling errors in my submission.
  • I agree to write original, unique content for 10to8, that is not featured ANYWHERE else for that matter.
  • I will promote my guest post via social media and or via my own existing blog or website to help maximize the reach
  • I would be ready and willing to answer any applicable questions or comments made on the guest post

Our writing style

Please try your best to align your writing style with our blog’s tone of voice. Please be sure to take a look at our blog to get a feel of how we write and to avoid submitting blog article ideas that we’ve already covered.

Some pointers to keep in mind:

  • We use US spelling on our website.
  • We adhere to the Oxford comma and hyphens in words like start–up, follow-up, non-profit, etc.
  • We use simple language where possible and avoid jargon. If you need to use acronyms, please spell them out at least once. 
  • Our tone of voice is friendly, fun, sometimes a bit quirky, and always insightful, knowledgable, and professional. 
  • We only publish original thoughts and try our best to avoid content pollution (the act of republishing the same old ideas over and over again).

Please note that we receive dozens of guest blog post requests a day, and we are in a position to reject many of them if they don’t adhere to our guidelines. Our review process can take up to 3-4 weeks, so please be patient. 

If this sounds good, then please do read on, as now we will tell you a little bit about our audience…
