Other Things to Include in Your Guest Post
- Statistics. According to recent research, people are 54% more likely to trust the content that 26% more data have backed.
- Outbound Links. Do you have a good perspective on a subject? Do you want to double-check that everyone understands the meaning of a word or concept? Include a reference. Make sure the links are going to reputable sources.
- Lists and Bullets. We’re all fans of something, whether a sports team, a movie franchise or even a specific type of food. And readers are no different – they’re always on the lookout for content that resonates with them on some level. That’s why bullet points are so crucial in article writing; they make it easy for skimmers to find the value in your piece without having to read the entire thing.
- Actionable Takeaways. Re-cap your article’s key takeaways in a bulleted list at the end of your post so readers can quickly scan and digest the most critical points.
What you get
At the bottom of the article, you can include a (no-follow) link to your website or LinkedIn profile and a brief bio. Your site should relate to web design, development, marketing, or another form of design.
Steps that will get you published on the Greatives blog
- Before you start writing, let’s come up with three headline ideas that will accurately reflect the content and appeal to our intended audience.
- We’ll evaluate your suggestions and respond as soon as possible.

- After you’ve written your draft, send it to me as a Google Doc. Use these sharing settings:
On – Anyone with the link;
Access – Can edit.
- We’ll make edits to this Doc, so make a copy if you want to keep an original version of your writing.

Guest Post Promotion
Social media links, newsletters, and blog mentions are great ways to share this post. You can even include a short section of the content on your blog as long as you link back to the original piece on our site. This is important because it helps us avoid being penalized for duplicate content.
