Guest Post Blogging Guidelines

At Management 3.0 we’re always looking for excellent content from like-minded people.

If you’re interested in writing for our blog below are a few things to keep in mind.

If you meet the criteria and are happy with the guidelines then please reach out to sam@management30.com and pitch a few ideas.

What we’re looking for:

  • Sharp, interesting content that adds value
  • Practical tips and tangible ideas for people interested in professional development, management and leadership and who care about living productive, fulfilling lives (see topic ideas below)
  • 100 percent unique content (no boilerplate). One month after publishing, writers are allowed to repurpose posts and post on other sites (like their blogs, LinkedIn or Medium), with a link back to the original post.
  • More than 750 words
  • An image with attribution for where the photo is from, who took it

What we’re not looking for:

  • Recycled content
  • Infographics only (happy to use them in conjunction with a proper article)
  • Articles that have nothing to do with management & leadership
  • Badly written articles
  • Pitches from people who are trying to market their own products

What we will and will not do:

  • Will not publish content with no author or under our name. If you write it, you take ownership for the content, your name is on it not ours
  • We will edit the article as much as needed
  • Will not include any backlinks unless extremely relevant but there is no commitment to include any
  • Will not do dofollows. Please don’t ask, We don’t do it, we don’t take money for it, it doesn’t happen
  • Will not include headshot
  • Will not include author bio
  • Will not publish to your schedule. We have a lot of content and a backlog, your article unless extremely time sensitive (to be decided by the editors) will be published at the end of the cue

Writing tips to keep in mind:

Assume Your Audience Knows Nothing: This is an important rule of journalism. This means define first all acronyms, define all concepts (including agile and Scrum), explain to your audience why it’s important to them, try to always address problem and solution. (Ie: our audience has never heard of agile.)

Speak to your Audience: Use “You” and “We” and when appropriate “I” in telling your story. Don’t use boring disengaging phrasing like “One” or to skirt around general third person. Bring the reader into it.
