Content Guidelines:

  • All content must be original and not published elsewhere. However, you may repurpose content if it is your own.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling.
  • Be open to questions and feedback in the community, responding to comments directly.
  • ShareHouse is to be spelled “ShareHouse”.
  • Use specifics where possible in your content. Does your experience apply to SaaS? Ecommerce? Custom work?
  • Stick to the deadline (or communicate any delays to your coordinator/editor – Bianca?).
  • Keep language inclusive.
  • Keep politics out of your content.
  • Backlinking is acceptable as long as it fits within the context of your content, though we reserve the right to change or remove backlinks (they are also acceptable in your byline/author bio).
  • Content should be focused on helping. It’s fine to mention products or services, but 90% of the content should be helpful and should not rely on the product or service mentioned. Sales pitches will be denied or edited.
  • Content can come in the form of a written article, video, podcast episode, social graphic + caption, or audio.
  • ShareHouse reserves the right to share, distribute, and repurpose content.
