Contribute to the Small Business Blog
The is4profit.com website has been helping UK small firms with free business advice for nearly 12 years. Recently is4profit opened its small business blog, expanding its knowledge base for business readers and the opportunities for professional contributors. So if you’d like to contribute to the small business blog, read on…
is4profit welcomes approaches from business experts who would like to contribute guest posts to the small business blog in order to provide UK SMEs with business advice, encouragement and inspiration.
What Are is4profit Looking For?
is4profit and its business audience are looking for quality articles aimed at small and medium-sized businesses in the UK. Our readers range from sole traders and work-from-home mums, to businesses of up to 250 employees. Our readership works in many sectors from accounting to retail, construction to telecoms.
Business blog posts should offer business advice, experiences & insights, tips or resources and we do, on rare occasions, publish opinion pieces. Ultimately we want our readers to take something of value away, whether it’s a business idea, inspiration or knowledge.
If you can provide references and links to sources, and imagery, such as royalty-free stock or your own photos, then this will greatly improve the credibility of your submission and provide a more rounded package that we can then offer to our business readers.
How Many Words?
Ideally we are looking for posts with a minimum of 500 words – Not so short that the reader is left wanting more and not so long that they’re wondering when it will end. If your blog post does stray into thousands of words we will consider splitting or serialising the piece just as long as each part provides standalone value in its own right.
is4profit’s editorial team have the ultimate say on which pieces are published and not published and we reserve the right to print extracts (We always provide credit to the person or business providing quotes or information)
We accept good quality, useful guest posts on business subjects but we will reject pieces that have had little factual, spelling and grammatical checking. Articles that are duplicated elsewhere, “spun” or overly promotional will also be rejected. No material on adult or gambling themes please.
It would be a great help if you could also provide any links to examples of previously published work.
