MeetToMatch – Guest Blogging Guidelines
Thanks for your interest in blogging for MeetToMatch! We really appreciate connecting with writers who can offer relevant content for our network. When writing, think about what information you would most like to read and share. It can be practical, inspirational or informative as long as it has value for our network. We want to see qualitative, professional content on our MeetToMatch profiles: blogs that show and share expertise.
What should I know?
- Write for (y)our audience: professionals (in the games industry) that attend b2b conferences and/or b2b event organizers.
- Write a blog with relevant and practical takeaways. The blog must be tailored to our network. If it has been published already elsewhere, please make amendments to fit our audience and prevent direct copies. Make sure that your story tells readers something new or offers suggestions on how to do something better (rather than just why and how to do it).
- Make sure that the blog you are sending us is presented from the writers viewpoint and follows the general customs when it comes to blogging.
- Don’t be a pushy salesperson. Disclose any relationship/partnership you have with links or sources in article. MeetToMatch does not allow direct sales through a blog, but to sell without selling can be okay.
- Do not include any political statements, foul language, provocations or other communications that may cause conflict.
- We do not publish press releases.
- Give credit. Check your facts and quotations. Cite the original sources (not the source that quoted the original source). Provide a links to said sources.
- Your blog can be in between 300 and 800 words (the ideal length is 500 words = 5 minutes reading time).
- Add at least one picture (minimal size 1024×768 px), this does not include the requested profile picture of the writer.
- Add a catchy headline.
- Add an introduction/description of the content for us to share on social media (max. 250 characters), including hashtags and mentions.
- Check for grammar and readability: we advise you to read your blog out loud.
- Send along the name, title/job description, company name and profile picture of the writer.
How do I submit a blog?
Send an email to moc.hctamotteemnull@ofni where you tell a little more about yourself, your company and why you think your blog is relevant for our network. Attach your completed blog draft to the email as a Word doc or Google doc format. Attach image(s) and your short introduction to the email as well. If the content is time sensitive, please make sure to inform us as well.
