At AnyCredit, our goal is to provide meaningful information to readers interested in all things finance. We do this by looking for articles that are informative and people-centered, focusing on real issues that can help readers properly manage their finances.
On that note, we’re always on the lookout for guest writers to share some new perspectives on our blog. If you’re interested in writing for us, we have some pointers below to make sure your piece is the right fit.
What We’re Looking For
Our audience is made up of readers who want to know more about managing their finances. There are a lot of topics that fall under this umbrella, but generally speaking we prefer our articles to cover the following topics:
- Credit cards
- Debt and loans
Any articles that outline how to manage credit, consolidate debt, save better, or choose the right investment are most welcome!
Once you have your idea pitched and ready to go, keep these key guidelines in mind:
Below are ten writing do’s that we expect guest bloggers to adhere to when they make content for us.
- Do send original content
- Do introduce your article with an overview of what your piece is about
- Do reference trusted news sites as needed
- Do link out to your source any time you mention specific facts or figures
- Do localize any information you cite
- Do submit content that adds to our readers’ knowledge, either by shedding new light on a topic or discussing a new financial trend
- Do be consistent with spelling and capitalization
- Do include the main keyword in your title and introduction where possible
- Do break your article up with subheadings, bullet points, and the like
- Do conclude your article by asking the reader to engage with the post
Of course, you can’t discuss writing do’s without outlining some writing don’ts. Below is a list of ten things we ask our writers to avoid.
- Don’t make your post overly sales-y
- Don’t stuff your article with too many keywords and phrases
- Don’t write lengthy paragraphs, keep it at 3-4 lines at most
- Don’t mention a person or organization without first introducing them
- Don’t forget the rule of parallelism (verbs with verbs, single words with single words) when writing bullet points
- Don’t go heavy on the jargon as this may alienate the reader
- Don’t include too many keywords in your article, as we want our posts to sound natural and not awkward
- Don’t send an unformatted article without the proper headings, subheadings, and the like
- Don’t forget to include an image or two to break up the text
And most importantly,
- Don’t submit your article without going through it at least twice
