Guest Post Standards

Your guest blog post reflects on our brand and our business.  I expect to learn something new, the information better be researched, and it better be well-written with original videos and pictures.

Image Guidelines for Guest Posts

  • One Image in the resolutions of 1200 x 628 (Facebook size).
  • One image in square size 1200 x 1200 (Instagram)
  • Original images only that you took or made yourself (no stock photography permitted.)

Content Requirements for Guest Blogging

  • At least a thousand words covering a properly scoped project.
  • Your article must contain a power item (video, podcast, infographic, spreadsheet, etc.)  Something valuable enough that it would want to a personal trainer share it on facebook, etc.
  • Spellcheck and grammar check your document.
  • Specify the Longtail Keyword and use a program like Yoast or SeoReviewTools to optimize the page.
  • All content must be original, and may only appear on Sand & Steel’s site.

Fees For Guest Posting

We will negotiate the fee overs the phone.  Guest posts generally cost around $100.  And yes, I’m sure you are a legendary writer, but it always takes us a lot of work to publish and edit a quality post.

Copyright for Guest Posts

Sand & Steel will own the complete copyright in your content (writing and media.)  You grant a perpetual, nonrevokable license to Sand & Steel to share, edit, revise, distribute any of the articles you submit.  All work you submit must be original content and media that you took with your camera.  We do not allow any sort of stock or GPL photos.
