Contribute to the HelpSpot Blog

At HelpSpot, our readers are interested in articles that help them work efficiently, make their customers and employees feel more supported; and make processes and interactions, whether customer-to-employee or coworker-to-coworker, better for everyone.

Guidelines for Contributed Articles

We encourage potential guest authors to keep the following in mind:

  • Quality content is critically important to us. We define this as: content that introduces a business problem or topic and provides clear, actionable advice or information that will help our readers be more successful.
  • Blog posts discussing a problem our readers may face must always include a recommended solution(s).
  • Opinion articles are accepted. Please introduce the topic, briefly reference common debate about the issue, and express your opinion and your rationale behind it.
  • All contributed articles should include a brief summary at the top outlining the topic and key takeaways of the post.
  • To make articles easily skimmable, please keep paragraphs short, break up your content with subheadings, and use bullet points when listing items.
  • If included images within your post, please link to the source for proof they fall under the Creative Commons (CC) license.
  • Please avoid being overly promotional of your product or business. Linking to your product or business in context is okay if appropriate for the context of your article.
  • We do not accept content that has been previously published elsewhere.
  • We may make light edits to address grammar, spelling, formatting, and sentence structure issues. We will never make edits that change the meaning of what you’ve written.
  • We cannot provide extensive editing—please don’t send “rough” drafts!
