We’re excited to have your article published on Around.io’s blog!

Here’s a little bit of what we expect from a guest post:

1. The article should be about one of these:

We publish posts in one of these categories. Please try to fit your content in one of these, we would really appreciate it.

  • Shop Promotion (marketing an online shop – includes things about ads, social promotions, brand marketing, email marketing, search marketing etc.)
  • Marketplace and Platforms (posts about marketplaces like Etsy, Storenvy or platforms like Shopify, BigCommerce etc.)
  • Shop Optimization (design, usability, SEO, carts etc.)
  • Sellers Resources (tools, apps, plugins, shops etc.)

2. Lots of actionable ideas and inputs:

Our community of sellers love actionable ideas that they can put to use right away. We try to publish articles with a lot of such insights. If you wrote something with a lot of actionable and easy-to-implement ideas, it would be a good fit for our blog.

3. Unique and easy to read:

Please make sure your article is unique (not published elsewhere). Also, make it reader-friendly with a lot of sub-headings and clearly marked sections. This way, you will make reading your article a breeze and connect with our community better.

4. There is no minimum word-limit but…

Excellent ideas and unique insights don’t need word-limits but just to deliver a high value, we try to publish long, deeply researched articles. We recommend that you try to have a lot of info in your article so that it’s at-least 1000+ words.

Examples:

5. Policy for outbound links:

You can add relevant links to authority sites or sources wherever necessary. Ideally the no. of links should be limited to 3-4 but depending upon the length/type of the content it can be more.

We also allow 1-2 links in author’s bio.
