Guidelines and submission process

Before submitting your guest post, please take a moment to review the following guidelines:

  1. Our principles: We review all pitches based on factors such as topic fit, SEO viability, and relevance to our audience. While we value all submissions, we cannot guarantee publication due to the volume of requests we receive.
  2. Quality standards: Submissions must meet our quality standards to be considered for publication. Our editors reserve the right to decline contributions that do not meet our editorial guidelines.
  3. Exclusive publication: If your post is published on the PPM Express blog, it will remain exclusive to our platform. We do not accept articles that have been previously published elsewhere.
  4. Content decisions: Our blog team has the discretion to edit and adapt guest blog content for optimization, accuracy, and comprehensiveness. We may also include calls-to-action and utilize your author photo across our content.

What we look for

Successful guest contributions align with our blog’s writing style and focus on educating our readers. 

Here’s what we look for:

  • Originality: We only publish content that has not been previously published elsewhere.
  • Writing style: Our blog aims to be casual yet helpful. Avoid jargon and strive for a conversational tone.
  • Data and attribution: Properly attribute data, quotations, and outside content referenced in your article. (Note: All data should have originated within the last three years.)
  • Relevant links: Include up to 3 external links (including links to your company’s website) and 5 relevant links to PPM Express blog posts. (Please avoid linking PPM Express competitors)
  • Accepted post types: We accept experiment/analysis posts and canonical posts that offer tactical takeaways supported by examples, quotes, graphics, and data.
  • Banned topics: Content on competitors, Forex, crypto, CBD, pharma, iGaming, and essay writing is prohibited. However, content within our niche is allowed unless it involves backlinks to direct competitors.

General guidelines

Here are some general guidelines to follow while drafting the guest post for us:

  • Submit a pitch before writing the content; we do not accept pre-written posts.
  • Write a minimum of 1,500 words in an editable Google Doc if your pitch is approved.
  • Include two strong title suggestions that incorporate the keyword
  • Avoid promotional mentions of products, services, or demos.
  • Ensure your content is unique and not plagiarized.
  • Cite and link plenty of original research, reputable statistics, and/or subject matter experts. (These will not count towards the three-link limit)
  • Include relevant images or videos directly in the draft (and please avoid stock photos)
  • Include a strong meta description with up to 130 characters
  • Provide a brief (less than 300 characters) bio with your headshot with a link to your LinkedIn profile. (We will add a bio feature to our blog with our next update as soon as possible.)
  • We understand the value of AI tools. However, we only accept unique and human-friendly content. Please make sure your content is original.

P.S. If any of these minimum requirements are not met, we will immediately send the article back. 

P.P.S.: Just because a draft hits the minimum requirements does not guarantee we will publish it. We use an internal procedure to ensure that the content is high quality and useful for readers. 

We reserve the right to reject the article at any point in the process. This will happen if you consistently ignore instructions or if the quality of the post is below expectations.

  • Use headers (H2, H3, H4) to structure your content.
