Interested in writing a guest post for StartupBros?

Awesome – because we’d be happy to consider publishing your work. 

Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer any question you have about what kind of content we’re looking for and how the submission process works. 

Here’s What We Want to Publish

We expect no-fluff, value-first content, but don’t be afraid to show off your humor or personality — this authentic approach works well with our audience.

Overall, the tone of our blog is very conversational. We want our audience to feel engaged, like we’re speaking with them – not at them – or worse, down to them.

We focus on creating in-depth, media-rich “how-to” content, with a special emphasis on action-ability (and engagement). 

We like our readers to follow along and implement the strategy or method or at least see the value it brings to them so much it slaps them in the face.

Our voice is a little snarky. We get straight to the point.

  • Your post needs to be (More than 1500 words)
  • Incredible to the reader. We’re really, really picky – probably too picky. Your post needs to be engaging, well-written, and extremely valuable for new entrepreneurs.
  • Original. Obviously, we don’t want anything that’s been published, in any form, anywhere else.
  • In-depth and relevant. We post more actionable how-to guides than anything else. Make sure your post is immediately helpful for new entrepreneurs and ‘wantrepreneurs’.
  • Extremely useful for entrepreneurs. Did I mention that yet?

If you think your post fits can fit that description, then please keep on reading!
