Interested in contributing a Guest Post to the Feisworld Blog?

Hi there! Thanks for your interest in writing a guest post for the Feisworld blog. We’re glad you’re here.

Feisworld blog has over 10K monthly visits, Feisworld Media (our YouTube channel) has over 50K monthly traffic. We are always looking for more brilliant contributors to join our ranks.

If you have exceptional writing, marketing and entrepreneurial skills and would like to share your expertise with a large audience of creatorpreneuers, coaches, speakers, authors and business owners, we’d love to hear from you.

Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer any questions you have about what kind of content we’re looking for and how the submission process works.

Also, we value your pitch, but due to the volume of requests we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions.

Please note: Feisworld blog charges a flat fee of $300USD (per post) for guest blogging. The fee is due upon approval of your pitch.

Why We Charge a Fee & What You Get in Return

Feisworld blog is run by a small team of creators and entrepreneurs. Unlike some of the other content platforms, we do not have a rigid guideline or a tiny niche. For example, requirements such that you need to link to 5 or more existing Feisworld blog posts, or your content must meet one of our three popular topics. Instead, we want to hear your stories, learn about your expertise.

We review requests more quickly, AND we may choose to cross promote your content on our social media platforms – YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and our Email List – a combined 30K+ readers with high engagement. Our YouTube channel has over 50K views per month, and our newsletter has over 35% open rate.

What We Are Looking For

Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new about the world of business. While we do focus primarily on video marketing strategies, effective business software, community building, virtual events, we’re also interested in publishing any topic that creators care about, which includes things like freelancing, health insurance, personal finance, lifestyle design and larger internet trends, among other things.

We also look for a few things in everything we publish:

  • Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere.
  • Article reflects the writing style/tone of our Blog. We aim to be casual, yet helpful, and typically we stay away from buzzwords and jargon.
  • Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article. Note: All data should have originated within the last two years.
  • No more than one link to your company’s website (Note: This includes your website homepage, blog, pricing page, etc …) in the body of the post.
  • Link to at least 2-3 other Feisworld blog posts in your piece. For example, if you’re writing a piece on running better virtual meetings, you can link to Feisworld’s blog posts related to Zoom tips for hosts and moderators, the Feisworld Academy on Podia, how to improve audio and video quality during of your virtual event.

The Different Post Types We Accept

We’ve conducted extensive studies to uncover which types of blog posts work — and which don’t. Here are some of our most successful blog post types:

  • Experiment / Analysis: Did you recently run a marketing experiment the likes of which have never been done before? Or maybe you completed an analysis of your own or your customers’ data that yielded fascinating insights the world show know about? Write it up and send it over. These posts should include hard data, actionable takeaways, and thorough explanations of each step in the experiment or analysis process. Readers should have enough information to replicate your experiment or study if they’d like to.
  • Canonical: These posts give readers in-depth tactical takeaways that are supported by relevant, recent examples, original quotes, original graphics, and current data. While we don’t like to put a word count on our posts, these tend to run at 1,500 words and above. When readers finish this type of post, they should be able to immediately execute on the given topic and have very few questions left on how to do it.
  • Graphics: These posts rely heavily on an infographic, data graph, or other visual aid created by the author. Usually, they feature a few paragraphs of introduction, the embedded media itself, and not much else. The graphic should be comprehensive and easy to read, have a compelling narrative, contain plenty of white space, and feature up-to-date data that’s properly sourced.

While we certainly publish posts from time to time that don’t fall into any of those categories, your post has the best chance of being accepted if it matches one of these formats.

What We Won’t Accept

There are some things we simply can’t accept:

  • Anything that’s been covered on our blog before. Please do a search of our site before submitting your articles.
  • Anything that may be construed as a link-building scheme.
  • Anything that’s overly promotional for your company or organization.
  • Anything that’s offensive or inaccurate.
  • Anything that’s overly critical of individuals or companies — this is not a site to air grievances.

The Not-So-Fine Print

  • Submissions must meet the Feisworld blogging team’s quality standards in order to get published. Editors reserve the right to reject contributions at their discretion.
  • We cannot allow you to republish your guest post to your own blog, LinkedIn, Medium, or Inbound.org afterward. 
  • The Feisworld blogging team reserves the right to edit and adapt your guest blog content as we see fit, and update it in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
  • Feisworld reserves the right to include calls-to-action to Feisworld content, including but not limited to email newsletters, ebooks, and other downloadable content.
  • In rare cases, contributed posts may be removed from the blog and recycle the URL.
  • Feisworld marketing teams reserves the right to use guest blog author’s likeness across our content as we see fit, including but not limited to Feisworld‘s social media channels.

How to Submit A Feisworld Guest Blogging Post

Step 1: Conduct a Google site search. If there is only one step you complete to turn in a pitch, this should be the one.

Step 2: Format your post appropriately.

  • Don’t sacrifice depth for the sake of brevity. We don’t enforce a strict word count on the blog, but most articles should fall in the 1,000 – 1,800 word range. Instead of trying to hit a specific word count, focus on clear, in-depth explanations that readers of different levels can understand and learn from. It’s better to over-explain a concept than under-explain and leave some readers in the dark.
  • The best blog copy is simple, accessible, and clear. Don’t get stuck trying to make a complex sentence structure work when a simple one works better. Take the most direct route to your points, use your natural voice, and avoid unnecessary filler words. Looking for more resources on drafting your blog post?
  • Paragraphs should be no more than three to five sentences long and formatted using H2s, H3s, and H4s, when appropriate.
  • Add bulleted lists to help break up dense copy chunks. Numbered lists should be formatted as number + period.
  • Always include a conclusion.
  • When including images, gifs, or screenshots, cite the image source as: “Image source” and hyperlink that text with the page you found the image on.
  • Tip: Copy and paste your post into Grammarly, or Microsoft Word and run a spell check. We prefer these editing tools for catching sneaky misspellings, and extra spaces. Feeling extra word-nerdy? Use Hemingway Editor to check for run-on sentences, difficult sentence structure, etc …

Step 3: Submit your pitch of finished blog post to hello [at] feisworld [dot] com with the following:

  • Formatted subject line: “Guest Pitch: [Tentative Title of Post]
  • Your completed post or pitch in a Google Document with editing permissions turned on for “anyone with the link.”
  • If you’re including images, make sure they’re compressed and add them into the Google Document, and provide proper attribution below each image
  • Short author bio, headshot, and any links to your LinkedIn or Twitter accounts you’d like linked.

If your article meets editorial standards and aligns with our content strategy, we will respond to let you know your article will be published. That process may take up to 2 weeks and the publish date could exceed this timeline based on the needs of our editorial calendar.

Due to the volume of requests we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions.
