The Orbit blog is where digital marketers find expert, practical advice on web design and content marketing. Our goal is to help you get better results from the web.
Posts on the Orbit website are helpful, not self-promotional. No jargon or corporate speak. Keep it interesting and conversational.
The audience is fellow marketers and small business owners. They are busy. What are they going to get out of your post?
The following are required material for the Orbit blog, especially formatting and images (please do not skip our image requirements below).
We love images and video on the Orbit blog. We use them to break up text, make the blog post scannable and to support data. We include one image at every scroll depth, so an image is always visible. Here is a great example.
Examples of images that do well on the Orbit blog and here.
We may edit your post or bounce it back to you for revisions. We may edit anchor text and links that are not relevant to your post. Sometimes scheduling may change but we will let you know ahead of time.
We ask that your article not be published elsewhere previously, or simultaneously. If you’d like to republish a guest post that ran on the Orbit site, please wait at least 2 weeks to do so. Update it to make it current and link to the original post.
We ask that your articles be submitted 7 days prior to your scheduled run date. Don’t worry, we’ll coordinate a date together.
Please be available the day your article publishes and the following days to respond to comments.
Please plan to promote your post throughout your social networks. We ask that you share it a few times on multiple networks over multiple days. The time frame and scheduling is up to you.
Here’s an awesome post on guest blogging like a pro for additional inspiration.
