What do we ask of you?
For us to approve your article, we ask that:
- You provide the article via Google Docs or a Word Document using our template. Please use our Templates: Google Doc or Word Doc.
- The article must be at least 1500 words. Posts that are 2,000+ words have a better chance of getting published.
All articles must be original content not published anywhere else (now and in the future).
All articles must be Copyscape-tested plagiarism-free.
- If your copy contains typos or bad grammar it will be rejected instantly.
A proposed meta-title and meta-description must also be provided together with the article.
All articles must be optimized around 1-3 target keywords, which should also be noted in the document. Please make sure that there is an actual search demand for your target keyword before submitting.
All articles must include at least 2 links to other Filecamp.com blog posts or landing pages.
Articles should include, wherever possible, bullet points, number lists, and subheadings to help the reader and search engines more easily digest your content when possible.
Images/infographics/gifs/videos are critical for a reader to understand your article. You provide at least 4 supporting images at a minimum of 1024px wide. Every article must have supporting imagery or it won’t be posted. Images must be sent separately in a zip file and not just embedded in the document. Provide alt tags for the images. Make sure to obtain copyright permissions for use and cite the source.
- Accept that we do not accept all posts. Typical posting times range from 2 to 4 weeks.
What does it cost?
- Nothing, if you abide by the guidelines in the ‘What do we ask of you?’ section above.
