The Ideal Sponsored Article
Here’s a quick rundown of our must-haves we look for in each contributed article:
Your article needs to be at least 800 words.
Titles should be under 70 characters, and meta descriptions can’t exceed 160 characters.
We have our own style guide, which mostly adheres to the AP Stylebook. Upon approval, our content team has the right to edit your content to fit our blog style guide.
They also will add images and visuals and ensure full optimization of the content. You can provide your own screenshots or images with proper sources that you want to include in your post.
Articles are most readable when they’re well organized. Break up blocks of text so the reader can easily comprehend the content. Bulleted lists are especially helpful in breaking up text-heavy articles.
Also, format sections with engaging subheadings that lead the reader into each section. This helps the piece flow well.
Bio and Headshot
Provide a concise biography between 100 and 300 characters to describe yourself and your expertise. Include links to your website and relevant social media profiles.
Also, you need to include a high-resolution headshot of the author in a .jpeg or PNG file.

When you submit your content, you’re granting Bluleadz unlimited rights of use, which may include several channels (web, email, social, etc.). Our team also reserves the right to edit for style, clarity, and tone.
Your content must be exclusive to our website. In other words, don’t republish and submit your Bluleadz blog article to other resources.
The Contributor Process
Alright, now let’s cover how you can submit your blog post ideas. Follow this simple process.
- Connect with the Bluleadz content manager, Jeff Previte, on LinkedIn.
- When you send a connection request, copy and paste this message: “I would like to submit a sponsored guest post.” Then, provide a brief summary of your blog post.
- Jeff will accept your LinkedIn request and ask you to send a Google Doc link for your blog post. NOTE: We only accept Google Doc links. You will be sent the sponsorship fee information if your idea is approved.
- If your post is rejected, we wish you the best of luck. Please review the reasons for rejection section. If your post is approved, you will be sent an invoice.
Reasons for Rejection
Please review these rejection reasons before sending your guest post submission. This way, we can spare any heartache.
Here are the reasons our content team might reject your submission:
Your article adds nothing new to the conversation. In other words, it’s unoriginal, either regurgitating content we already have on our blog or it plagiarizes other content.
Your article doesn’t meet the length requirements.
Your writing doesn’t cut it. To put it simply, your content is full of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. If your article needs heavy editing, it will be automatically rejected.
Your content is way too promotional. Remember, we’re inbound here. Our readers don’t want a sales pitch from you; they want to learn something new.
Your article doesn’t provide enough detail, or it delivers misleading or false information.
Your content is way too simple. For example, our readers know what SEO is, so don’t write an article on why SEO is important.
Your content is too complex. Some of our readers are very advanced, but we don’t want to get them lost in the weeds.
We made it through! Great job!
