We love guest posts, but we do get many requests on a daily basis. As such, we prefer topic pitches over completed submissions so we can better track and more quickly respond to them. That being said, here are some best practices that will help us to respond to you faster and, if your topic is a go, get it published sooner.

  • Familiarize with the Renwileducate blog. Read a few posts in full, and then do some skimming and exploring to get a feel for our tone and our basic format.
  • Come with ideas. We love it when you come to us with topic ideas or ideally, titles.
  • Check to see if we’ve published your topic already. If we’ve already published a similar post, consider whether you could write something more up-to-date, or approach it with a fresh angle or different perspective.

    The best way to see if we’ve covered your topic is to do a site search on Google:

Search and topics that have not been covered

  • Tell us about yourself. If you have a specific experience or expertise that makes you the person to write this post, tell us! Also, if you have existing writing samples or publications, please share a few! But not to worry if you don’t.
  • Include [GUEST PITCH] in your subject line. It seriously helps!

What we need in your guest post

Once we agree on a topic and you get the go-ahead to start writing, make sure you provide the following:

  • Adequate length: 700-800 words please!
  • Renwileducate links: We’ll add more internal links when we’re editing the post, but ~3 WS links you add to the post would be great.
  • A short bio at the end: 1-3 sentences about who you are, what you do, and/or what you’re passionate about. Feel free to include links to your business website, LinkedIn profile, or social media handles. 
  • Images: All Renwileducate posts include one image early in the introduction, and additional images every 200-300 words.

Image guidelines

  • We require images every 2-300 words whenever possible.
  • No stock photos please. 
  • Images don’t have to be original (although those are great), just be sure to cite the image by hyperlinking “Image source” at the bottom.
  • Image ideas (not an exhaustive list)
    • Platform screenshots of tactical processes.
    • Graphs, charts, and other visuals.
    • Real-world examples of the strategy or tactic you are describing.
    • Recycled Renwileducate images—do a site search in Google images (site:renwileducate.com [image you are looking for] (without the brackets) to see if we have one you can recycle.
    • Google Images- cite the source!
  • The best way to provide images:
    • Paste them right into the Google doc and we can save them off of there.
    • Zoom in before taking screenshots to avoid too-small or pixelated images. Do not take them on external monitors.

The process (what to expect)

There are a ton of guest posts on our blog with great topics, interesting titles, unique perspectives, high-quality images, actionable advice, and engaged readers.

Response time to your pitch

This is provided your pitch meets the requirements above (is complete with information about yourself, writing samples, and topic ideas).

We do our best to respond to pitches within 1-2 weeks. If you haven’t received a response after 3 weeks, please do follow up.

Topic/title approval

We’ll collaborate on the topic/title and ask you to provide an outline. Once we’ve reviewed your outline, we’ll let you know whether we’ll consider a draft.

Draft review

Just like your pitch, we do our best to review drafts within 1-2 weeks. Follow up after 2 weeks if you haven’t heard back.

If the draft does not meet our quality standards (i.e., it cannot be improved without heavy edits), we will not move forward with the post.

If the draft does our quality standards, you can expect the following:


  • Because the content we publish varies so significantly, our process for editing guest posts isn’t strictly defined. We do edit the content to ensure it matches our style
  • If we need anything on your end— a better quality image, a change to a section, or further elaboration on something, we’ll let you know.


Depending on the level of edits needed and our content calendar volume, your post could get published anywhere from 2-4 weeks after you’ve submitted it. This can be longer if we are particularly backlogged. Either way, we’ll let you know early on.


The Renwileducate blog has been publishing industry-leading content for over a year and sees over many viewers each month.

Social promotion

We promote our content on social regularly. If you’re guest posting for the Renwileducate blog, we’ll ask for your social information to tag you in our promotion so that you can share with your network, too.
