Hi there! Thanks for your interest in writing a guest blog for HubSpot. We’re glad you’re here.
The award-winning HubSpot Blogs have over 7 million monthly visits, and we’re always looking for more brilliant contributors to join our ranks.
If you have exceptional writing and/or design skills and would like to share your expertise with a large audience of marketers, growth hackers, and business owners, we’d love to hear from you.
Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer any questions you have about what kind of content we’re looking for and how the submission process works.
Also, we value your pitch, but due to the volume of requests we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions.
Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new about the world of business. While we tend to skew toward content about specific marketing tactics, that’s not all we talk about.
We’re also interested in publishing any topic that marketers care about, which includes things like hiring, team development, job hunting, writing, design, math, and larger internet trends, among other things.
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
We’ve conducted extensive studies to uncover which types of blog posts work — and which don’t. Here are some of our most successful blog post types:
While we certainly publish posts from time to time that don’t fall into any of those categories, your post has the best chance of being accepted if it matches one of these formats.
There are some things we simply can’t accept:
Step 1: Conduct a Google site search. If there is only one step you complete to turn in a pitch, this should be the one. Note: This is not a normal website search. Check out how to do a Google site search here and add another skill to your set.
Didn’t click on the link we just provided? You wouldn’t be the first. Simply copy and paste this URL in your search bar: “site:blog.hubspot.com/marketing” and add a space followed by the keyword you’re targeting with your pitch.
For example: “site:blog.hubspot.com/marketing branding trends”. In this example, you’ll see HubSpot has published quite a bit on branding. If you still want to pitch a branding topic, make sure you’re telling us what differentiates it from the dozens of other branding pieces on HubSpot.
Step 2: Format your post appropriately.
Step 3: Submit your pitch of finished blog post to guestpost [at] hubspot [dot] com with the following:
If your article meets editorial standards and aligns with our content strategy, we will respond to let you know your article will be published. That process may take up to 2 weeks and the publish date could exceed this timeline based on the needs of our editorial calendar.
Due to the volume of requests we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions.
