When I started Pro Copy Tips, I wanted it to be a place where anyone who writes copy could learn how to do it better — whether they’re full-time or part-time, employee or freelancer, entrepreneur or business executive.
It’s also a place where you can learn about starting and running a freelance business from someone who actually makes a living at it.
But as much as I like sharing all these tips with you, I’m just one woman. There are others who do what I do, and they all have a unique set of skills and know-how.
So if you’re an experienced copywriter, I want to share your wisdom here on Pro Copy Tips. Whaddya say?
Tips for Blog Post Submissions
Okay, hang on. Before you send anything, let’s set a few simple ground rules.
- If you’re not a regular reader, become one. Look through the archives. See what I’ve already published. This is a blog about copywriting (advertising, marketing, sales, etc.), not fiction writing.
- Write posts that are clear and practical. I’m looking for tips, tools, resources, and inspiration to turn ordinary words into extraordinary success. I also welcome posts about freelancing, such as how to handle clients, be more efficient, and grow your business.
- Don’t submit self-promotion. I’ll just trash it. You can, however, include a short blurb at the end of your post with a link to your site.
- Get to the point. Sure, you can be humorous, tell stories, and entertain readers, but don’t get carried away. After reading your post, people should think, “That’s helpful. I can use that right now.”
- Have mercy. Submit your ideas. Give me a link to your own blog so I can check you out. I’ll get back to you ASAP. But I’m really, really busy. So be patient if I don’t respond immediately.
- Proof your copy. Enough said.
Now that isn’t so bad, is it? Pretty common sense, really.
So send me some ideas. I’m looking forward to sharing your know-how.
