Are you interested in sharing your expertise with our audience with a guest post?
Are you an expert on the business of music?
Are there other important topics, like marketing, branding, social media, crowdfunding, recording, engineering, record deals, songwriting, or contracts that you know a lot about?
The Music Entrepreneur is now accepting guest posts. After all, I don’t pretend to know it all, and I know that there are many of you out there that would be able to bring unique and valuable insights to the community.
If you’re interested in submitting a post, here’s what you need to know:
- Guest posts must be at least 600 words. We welcome and even prefer in-depth articles that cover topics in a comprehensive manner, but the minimum is 600 words. Your submission may be discarded if we review it only to discover that it does not meet our guidelines.
- Guest posts must be unique and original. We are not accepting articles and posts that have already been published elsewhere. No spun content please. Also, be sure to search the site to see whether or not your topic has already been covered. You’re always welcome to submit an updated post about an old topic, or to put your own spin on it, but we don’t want anything that too closely resembles content that’s already on the site.
- Guest posts must be on-topic. Make sure your content connects to the music industry, independent artists, or music entrepreneurs in some way. Otherwise it won’t even make it to the review process.
- Guest posts must not contain too many self-serving links. One or two is totally fine, and we’re always happy to include a dofollow link in your author byline too.
- Guest posts must be proofread and edited. I’m good at editing – I really am. But I don’t want to spend too much time combing through your post to correct typos and unreadable sentences. Please double-check, triple-check and clean up your article before submitting it. Seriously.
- Guest posts must use a similar style to our posts. You can see from the archives that I use italics and bolded text to emphasize points, headings to break up sections, and bullets to list things off. This is the bare minimum you need to include in your guest post.
- You must provide an author bio and photo. The bio should be no more than three to four sentences long. If you do not provide a photo, we will find one and use it at our own discretion.
And that’s about it.
If you’re onboard, then reach out to me directly at: email@example.com. I look forward to seeing your pitches.
