Guest Posting Guidelines

We love guest posts, but we do get a high volume of requests on a daily basis. As such, Rightapp4u only accepts posts that are high-quality, timely, accurate, actionable, original, and resonate with our audience.

Here are some best practices that will help us to respond to you faster and, if your topic is a go, get it published sooner.

Familiarize with the Rightapp4u content

Please do this! To get a feel for not only our topics, but also our tone and basic format (short intros, lots of headings and subheadings, short paragraphs, value-adding images, etc.). Read a few posts in full, and then do some skimming and exploring.

Check to see if we’ve covered your topic already

We’ve been around for over a decade, so this is a must! If we have covered your topic, we may still be interested if you can offer something more up-to-date or approach it with a fresh angle or different perspective. The best way to see if we’ve covered your topic is to do a site search on Google.

Check our specs

Here’s what we want!

  • Sufficient length: 1,200 words minimum
  • Short intro: ~150 words. Introduce your topic and then tell the reader what the post will cover.
  • Friendly tone: conversational, not corporate!
  • High quality: original, actionable, organized, and accurate!
  • Skimmability: headings, subheadings, short paragraphs
  • Images: screenshots, graphs, charts, concept illustrations, images from our existing posts, etc. NO STOCK IMAGES (prefer CC images). A meme or two is okay. Images that don’t belong to us/you need to be cited via “Image source” anchor text under each image.
  • Backlinks: no more than 3 per post
  • Short bio: 1-3 sentences, can include links to your website or social accounts.

Here’s what we DON’T want!

  • Thin content that demonstrates a lack of depth of knowledge on a topic.
  • Fluff: redundant, filler words, uses many words to say little.
  • Overly promotional content.
  • Previously published or sponsored content.
  • Stock images! (Worth mentioning again.)

What to expect

We get a large volume of guest pitches, so please be patient with us throughout the process.

  1. Pitch response: If your pitch is chosen, we’ll do our best to respond within 1-2 weeks. Please follow up in three weeks if you haven’t heard from us.
  2. Outline: Once we nail down the topic and title, we’ll request an outline. If the outline is approved, you’ll get drafting!
  3. Draft: If the draft meets our quality standards, we’ll move on to editing. [If the draft does not meet our quality standards (i.e., it is thin content and/or cannot be improved without heavy edits), we will let you know that we cannot move forward with the post.]
  4. Edits: We will edit the content to align with our standards as well as the Rightapp4u style guide. If we need anything on your end— a better quality image, a change to a section, or further elaboration on something, we’ll let you know.
  5. Publishing: Depending on the level of edits needed and our content calendar needs, your post could get published anywhere from 2-4 weeks after you’ve submitted it. This can be longer if we are particularly backlogged.

If your post is accepted, you agree not to publish the post elsewhere, including your own blog or website.

In the case your post is rejected, you are obviously free to do whatever you want with it.
