The Orbit blog is where business owners, creatives and marketers can find expert, practical advice on content marketing, analytics and web design. Our goal is to help you get better results from the web.
As a writer on our blog, we ask that posts provide practical and actionable advice on web marketing.
Posts on the Orbit website are helpful, not self-promotional. No jargon or corporate speak. Keep it interesting and conversational.
The audience is fellow marketers and small business owners. They are busy. What are they going to get out of your post?
Word count: 800 (min) - Please don’t limit your blog post based on this number. Most of Orbit’s blog posts range from 800 - 2800 words.
Format: Please send as a Word doc or share a Google doc.
Links: Link to other content whenever relevant. Every link included must add value for readers.
Paragraph length: Keep paragraphs short. No longer than 4 lines.
We may edit your post or bounce it back to you for revisions. We may edit anchor text and links that are not relevant to your post. Sometimes scheduling may change but we will let you know of any changes.
We ask that your article not be published elsewhere previously, or simultaneously. If you’d like to republish a guest post that ran on the Orbit site, please wait at least 2 weeks to do so. Update it to make it current and link to the original post.
We ask that your articles be submitted 7 days prior to your scheduled run date. Don’t worry, we’ll coordinate a date together.
Please be available the day your article publishes and the following days to respond to comments.
Please plan to promote your post throughout your social networks. We ask that you share it more than once on multiple networks over multiple days. The time frame and scheduling is up to you.
