Thanks for taking an interest in sharing your knowledge and expertise with my audience.

For the best outcome overall, here's a little info on my audience:

  • they enjoy posts on productivity, growth hacking, and business—particularly on working from home.
  • they're composed of solo entrepreneurs—people who already have their own self-run businesses, direct sellers, or people looking for information before starting a solo business. If you pitch me with content that talks about "employees" or "small business owners", I won't respond to your email. 
  • they love details—step-by-step and methodical posts, and don't forget about those well-planned list posts, too. (Always winners here.)

THE RULES OF THE ROAD

  • Only posts with 1,000+ words will be accepted. (If you can create a killer, detailed post in less than 1,000 words, I'm willing to check it out.)

  • Although I edit everything that's published, if your post becomes a "job" to edit, I won't publish it.

  • If you're going to submit a "How To" post in some form, you must include action step(s) with every point made. No half-assed content will be published.

  • Read a few of my most recent posts to get a feel for how I write—I use contractions and dance across the line of "your somewhat geeky, no-bullshit friend who loves business, productivity, and growth hacking". With that said, I want *your* personality to peek through—not like you hired a copywriter from India who doesn't give a shit about you, me, nor the readers. (Capeesh?)

  • Keep the writing clean-ish (I did just say "bullshit" and "shit" in the same bullet point...), simple enough for a 5th grade reading level—go with "grow fast" instead of "burgeon" (no show-offs, please), and break those paragraphs up—2-3 sentence paragraphs, max.

  • Your post submission must be original and published only on Goff Creative's blog.


NOTE: I'll create the lead blog image(s) for your post. But you'll need to provide any additional images—like examples, screenshots, etc.—that need to accompany your post.

(What do you enjoy? What do you do? What's your favorite thing about yourself?)
 

BEFORE YOU GET PUBLISHED

  • Your post submission needs to come in a Google Doc with all images and links inserted where you would like for them to go. Links can go like this: [https://goffcreative.com/start-here/] right next to the word or sentence you want it inserted in / on.

    If you're going to include links to other content outside of my blog, make sure it's not a bunch of "self-promotion". Meaning it's linking to valid sources and so on. (Yes, I check all sources, claims, etc.)
     
  • I'll need a brief 2 to 4 sentence bio about you and / or what you do.
     
  • SUGGESTION: You'll want to include a link to a specific landing page built around the content you submit. (It'll bump up your conversion rate, trust me.) And yes, you can include a content upgrade on your landing page. I won't advertise it in the post, though.
     
  • Got a good photo of yourself? Email that over to me, too, after I reach out to you.
