Editorial Guidelines

If you decide to become a guest author and submit an article, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines:

Voice Technology Articles Only

Your article must be related to voice technology in some way. Anything that helps people build better voice apps is great! This can include business, research, design, development, and more.. If it’s not related to voice tech, it won’t be published.

Content

Evergreen content is the best i.e. how-to articles, walkthroughs, definitions, listicles of resources etc. Time-sensitive content like news is not ideal, and is unlikely to be accepted.

We seek to provide actionable articles based on real-world results. Be sure to include plenty of quality advice and examples. Cut the fluff, keep the details meaty, and make sure your content has a strong headline and opener to attract readers.

Length

A minimum of 500 words is required for an article. There’s a soft-maximum of around 1500 words.

Sections

Please split your text into at least two text sections with appropriate subheadings, as this makes it easier for people to read/scan. Please try to keep each section to around 200 words.

Spelling

Please run your text through a spellchecker before submission. US and UK spellings are fine. Proper punctuation and grammar is (are?) important.

Links

Add your links in form and my team will incorporate them into the article. Promotional links are allowed, but affiliate links are not.

Please also try to link to at least one other relevant article on voicetechpodcast.com if possible. The helps users find similar content, and helps us track unauthorised copies of your work.
