Guidelines for Companies

If you are posting on behalf of your company, please pay special attention to this section.

Some of our most successful guest posts have come from individuals publishing on behalf of their companies. If you are looking to promote a product or service through guest posting, the sole focus must be to educate, not to promote. Any posts that only serve to promote will be rejected.

Here is an example of a well-written article, that pushed 100’s of clicks through to their relevant sites and booked demos out for weeks.

Alternatively, if your intention is to promote your company or AppExchange App, please request details on our AppAssessor program. The AppAssessor is an impartial review of a featured AppExchange App by a certified consultant with diverse experience. Please request details from [email protected]
