Guest contributor guidelines

Below are the “Do and Don’t” guidelines for guest writing for LIVE365. Please check these out before submitting an article.

DO…

Submit Original Posts: Posts must be unique and original to LIVE365. Posts must not have been published or submitted elsewhere online or offline (including your personal blog) or be used in future for distribution on other sites (including your personal blog).

Bring Your Unique Voice & Passion: We share a wide range of topics and have a large body of material available to our community. You can add value to this existing collection by bringing your own unique voice and views, infused with your passion and personality. Please write from your heart, based on personal experience and/or professional expertise, and please write as if you’re talking to a friend. The more down-to-earth the better. People love to feel like they’re reading something written by a real person, with real experience in life, and genuine heart.

Choose a Great Title: People have so much selection available to them for what to read online. They choose quickly (within seconds) what articles to open, and your article title is what will help them decide. When choosing a title, think about the reader and what they’re looking to learn, discover, achieve, or the problem they want to solve, and then write your title to clearly speak to their need.

Use a Captivating Opening Statement: A reader will be captivated, or not, within the first few sentences of an article. Please ensure your opening paragraph is engaging, tells the reader exactly what they are about to experience and makes them want to read on as they know they are about to gain benefit.

Logical & Succinct: In the body of your article…

  • Word Count – Please submit articles of at least 600 words.

  • Sub-Headings – Please split up your content with relevant sub headings to make it easier for readers to follow the logical flow of ideas.

  • Short Paragraphs – So readers can easily digest your awesome article, please keep paragraphs short and succinct (2-3 sentences each).

At Least One Actionable Item: All articles should include either…

  • One or more questions to prompt the reader to consider the topic in relation to their own situation and/or

  • One or more actionable practical tips that the reader can easily start applying in their life.

Please check before submitting: Please do your own quality checks on your article before submitting to ensure it is a high standard of written English (proof reading, spelling, and grammar). Thank you!
