What it Takes to Guest Post

Our goal at Coaching Purpose is to advocate for the coaching industry.  We believe that everyone is better with a coach, and that includes coaches.

We're looking for posts that will help coaches improve their skills, build their business, improve their practice and expose more people to the coaching industry.

 

Be Useful

The first thing we look for in a guest post is whether it will be useful for our readers.  Will it help our subscribers become better coaches?

Is there a particular coaching skill that most people struggle with, that comes naturally to you?  We're interested in that.

Is there a practice that you've spent years to master?  We'd be interested in a topic like that.

We are looking for content that provides significant benefit to our users.

We want content our readers can act upon.

 

Be Relevant

We are looking for content that is relevant to the coaching community, things like (but not limited to):

  • Best practices
  • Skill building
  • Leadership
  • Tools

You may want to review some of our past posts as an example.

 

Write Well

You don't have to be Ernest Hemmingway, but we do expect that the post is well written.  We love posts that are interesting, tell a great story and use great metaphor.

We're not looking for first draft content.  We're looking for your best stuff, content that has been written, revised and re-written.

We expect submissions to be grammatically correct and run through a spell checker.  Nobody's perfect and mistakes happen, but do your best to eliminate them before submitting your content for review.

 

Fresh

We expect that content posted to Coaching Purpose will be exclusive to our site and will not appear on other websites, including your blog.

We will allow you to promote your site in a brief author bio that we add to your post.  And we will link back to your site if you wish.

We will promote the content we post to our subscribers and social media followers, and we encourage you to do the same.

 

Next Steps

If you have content that is useful, relevant and well-written, and you agree to our use restrictions, we'd love to hear from you. 

Email us through our Contact Form.  Let us know what you would like to write about and why you think it would be a good fit.  It's always a good idea to provide a link to some of your previous work.

Give us a few days to review your proposal.  We will get back to you and let you know if we'd like to move forward.
