Guest Blogger Guidelines & Suggestions

Topics:
We’re open to articles on almost everything pertaining to the use and implementation of StreamServe’s solutions. Posts with tips, how-to posts, and interesting and informative lists that they can easily digest are often the ones that are of most interest to readers. We’re always looking for posts describing best practices, marketing and sales tips, as well as those that walk people through the process of using StreamServe.

Sub Headings:
Subheadings are great for breaking up your posts, and help make them easier to read.

Images:
Images can really grab a reader’s attention and help visually explain the message you are relaying. If you can’t come up with an image that directly relates to what you’re writing about, think of abstract images that may illustrate your point. A few notes

  • Images can be of any size – but the maximum width is 600 pixels.
  • You must have permission to use an image, or at least use one where there is no copyright issue. Proper attribution is required.

Blog Length:
Blogs can be of any length as long as they convey the message. However, please keep in mind that blogs that are too long can be daunting for readers.

Editing:
StreamServe regularly edits posts submitted by contributors and guest bloggers. We’re not going to rewrite your article, but may suggest grammatical changes, minor edits, title changes, image changes, and other changes. We may return your article with recommendations to help readers better understand the content.

Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising:
The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently revised their guidelines concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising, effective 12/1/09. Bloggers who are being compensated in any form for their services must disclose this clearly and conspicuously in their blog article. You can read the FTC announcement of these changes here.
