Please understand that we don’t accept unsolicited submissions. We DO accept brief pitches for blog posts (see instructions below), and if we like your writing and your idea, we may invite you to contribute.

Think you’ve got what it takes? Read on.
It has to be high quality
We have some seriously high standards when it comes to our content. Don’t be surprised if you’re asked to go through multiple revisions and edits before we publish it.
This one is pretty obvious. If your article has been published anywhere else before, we don’t want it.
Know our audience.
Entrepreneurs HQ is all about providing quality, actionable content for novice-stage startups and entrepreneurs, and anything within that ecosystem. You can check out our highest performing posts with tools like Buzzsumo if you need some inspiration on what to write for us. All articles are to be written bearing in mind that Entrepreneurs HQ has a global audience.
Our main requirement is that your article provides useful and actionable advice to our audience. This isn’t a place to wax poetic about the state of social media unless you’re telling our audience what they can do about it.
In-depth but concise.
We don’t have word requirements, but our feature posts tend to run 2500+ words. We like for our content to be detailed and dive deep, but we don’t want it to drone on or be repetitive.
You’re around when the post goes live.
Contributors must be online when the post goes live and promote.
You’re ready to do your part to promote.
Of course Entrepreneurs HQ will be sure to mail out your blog post to our 50 thousand plus mailing list as well as promote it on our own social media networks. But make sure that you do your part as well to share your epic post. Let everyone in your networks know about it. Together we can ensure that your post becomes a massive success!
Once published on the Entrepreneurs HQ blog, contributors are not permitted to re-post their article on any other websites or media outlets.
If we do not end up publishing your contribution, you are free to use this article anywhere else on the web. We do not own the rights to your piece.
