Create a great article
IMAGE – choose an image that captures the article, and the attention of readers on social media. It can be the difference between 1 share and 100,000 and you must have the legal right to use the image. No logo, no website address. Just a plain beautiful image. Think of your Facebook page and the images that catch your eye, then apply the same criteria.
Or if you prefer, we will take care of the image for you.
HEADLINE – This also needs to grab the attention of readers. As a rule, list posts often have the greatest pull on your readers. Check out this article for more tips. 19 Headline Writing Tips for More Clickable, Shareable Blog Posts.
BEGIN WITH A BANG – If you want to grab the attention of the reader so they are interested in finding out more about who you are and what you might have on offer, the important element after the image and the headline is to start your article off with a bang.
Here’s a great article from Copyblogger to pave the way.
SUBMIT YOUR ARTICLE – Before you do so, please note that we do not accept articles where the sole purpose is to promote or sell a product or organization or advertise in any way shape or form through links or otherwise.
