First, read the site. Get a sense for the types of stories we cover (Everything related to social media). Don’t pitch stories / ideas we’ve already written.
We also publish mention-worthy startup sites, tech conferences, venture capital news, numbered lists, tips, tricks or “How To” articles with unique analysis, commentary, and expert opinion.
However, we are always open to new and original content related to Social Media, Content Marketing, Growth Hacking, Inbound Marketing, and Startups.
On the same note, let us tell you what we do not like in a post.
- We do not have a taste for explicit content or links
- Anything that looks similar to spam/advertisement (excessive linking etc.) will also not get published.
