Write for the Viral Solutions Blog!
Gain Exposure as a Guest Author
Do you have knowledge to share but can’t seem to get noticed?
We get it. It can be challenging to stand out among all the other voices out there, especially as an industry beginner or niche player. That’s why we want to offer you the chance to write for us and gain exposure as a guest author on our blog!
At Viral Solutions, we seek to partner with guest authors to produce blog content for our website that demonstrates expertise in a relevant area, provides our audience with value, and meets our guidelines.
If this sounds like an opportunity you’d like to take advantage of, read this page thoroughly to understand our requirements, submission process, and more.

- You can include a link to your website or portfolio and a social link.

What We Look for in a Blog
Your blog must be relevant to our audience (primarily business owners) and fit under one of the topics listed in the previous section. Additionally, any links you include in the blog should be relevant and direct to trustworthy sources.
Your content must be 100% original. We won’t accept content that has been scraped, copied, or otherwise plagiarized. Once we’ve published your blog on our site, you also agree that it won’t be republished elsewhere.
Your blog must be at least 1,500 words and offer an in-depth take on the chosen topic.
Your content must be well-written and easy to read. Some specific directions are as follows:
- Include clear headings and subheadings.
- Avoid using jargon (unless it’s defined).
- Keep sentences and paragraphs fairly short.
- Break up text with bullets, numbered lists, etc.
- Perform a spelling/grammar check before submitting.
Any blog you write should be educational (not promotional) and provide readers with value beyond what’s already available. We love to see examples of concepts and even screenshots, as long as you provide a source. Additionally, make sure to back up claims and statistics with links to research.
What Other Guidelines to Follow
- Blogs may not be written by or have links to another digital marketing agency.
- Blogs may not include self-promotional backlinks within the body copy.
- Blogs should be geared toward small and mid-sized business owners.
How Becoming a Guest Author Works
[Note: Submitting a blog doesn’t guarantee placement on our site. We’ll make a final decision once we’ve reviewed your blog and confirmed that it follows our guidelines.]
If your blog is accepted, it will be published under “Guest Author.” Your information will be featured at the bottom of the post. This includes your name, title, photo (if provided), a link to your website, and a social link. You’ll also receive a link to the blog once it’s live, and we’ll tag you on social media if desired.
If your blog is not accepted, it will not be published on our site or stored elsewhere. You’ll retain ownership of your content and can use it however you please.
