Thought leaders are welcome on the IMA blog. Please contact contact Shawn Elledge to talk about our thought leader program after reading through our guest post guidelines.
NOTE: Due to changes in the way Google views guest posts (nicely covered here by our smart friend Tom Pick) we are particular about the guest posts we accept. If we don’t know you, or if you’re not connected to someone we know, we’ll be looking carefully at your submissions. We are quite familiar with link-building tactics today and our email inboxes are inundated with friendly offers of guest posting thinly disguised as link-building. We know better, so please don’t try that. Thanks for understanding.
Here are our guest post guidelines:
Posts must be interesting and of value to our readers (senior marketers, C-suite executives, agency types, B2B technology experts and marketers, online marketing specialists, and all around smart people).
Save the promotional posts and obvious sales pitches—those won’t cut it.
Posts much be professionally written, grammatically correct, and enjoyable and informative to read.
Post authorship must be attributable to a real person, and include a short “about the author” bio along with links to social profiles of the author.
Hyperlinks in the post content are fine, please be reasonable. We reserve the right to remove any links we feel are inappropriate or excessive. We also reserve the right to make minor text edits.
Posts can be original, or they can have originally been published elsewhere (syndicated). If syndicated, the post should include a reference as to where the post first published and a link.
If you provide images for the post, you will provide a source and reference for the image, along with appropriate image names and alt descriptions. You also warrant the image is free from copyright violation and assume all current and future risk and/or liability regarding the use of any images you provide for inclusion in your guest post.
We of course will not accept any guest post submission that doesn’t meet our quality standards or the guest post guidelines set forth here. Thank you for reading this far, and know that we genuinely welcome great guest post content. Our team has a significant digital footprint and content published on any of our family of websites attracts eyeballs and interest. We are good company to keep and we welcome you to be a part of our community. If you have any questions, let us know!
