When will my blog post be published?

Thanks for submitting a blog post to ProCopywriters.

We typically work a few months in advance, but if you submitted an article 3+ months ago, and haven't seen it on our blog, it's likely to have been rejected as unsuitable.

There are a few reasons an article may have been unsuitable for our blog. This extract from our Blogging Guidelines explains our requirements:

  • Blog posts need to be at least 600 words long. If your post is shorter than that, our Discord community might be a better home for it.
  • Choose your subject carefully.  Your post could focus on the craft of copywritingyour experiences starting out or the challenges of working with clients. Check the blog to see if someone else has recently covered the subject you want to write about. If that’s the case, or we feel it’s too derivative, we may not be able to take it forward right away.
  • Title your article clearly – ideally in such a way that someone might find it when searching. For example, if your article shares a specific strategy or technique, include the name of the technique, as well as the problem it addresses, within the title.
  • Proofread and sense-check your post. A big part of what we do is building copywriting’s reputation as a profession. So if your post has typos, or needs to be restructured or rewritten, we won’t publish it.
  • Keep it clean and civil. Constructive criticism is fine, but attacks on other copywriters aren’t. Don’t type anything you wouldn’t say, whether in person, a post or a comment.
  • Don’t bury the lede. If you can answer the reader’s questions in the first paragraph, please do.
  • Don’t spam. You can link to any third-party sites you want in order to clarify or illustrate your points. But posts with affiliate links (any link through which you stand to earn commission from traffic or sales) will probably be deleted. This includes Amazon links.
  • Don’t self-promote. This isn’t LinkedIn. Please don’t write a post that’s all about promoting your business. News about yourself is OK, provided other copywriters are likely to be interested. You can link to your own site once from each post.
  • Case studies should be helpful descriptions of how you did something, and what you did to make sure it was effective. They shouldn’t just be thinly-veiled adverts for products or services.

We’re less likely to publish your post if it:

    • tells readers what to do, but not how
    • makes readers forage for the main point
    • raises an issue, but doesn’t tell readers how to address it
    • doesn’t include relevant links
    • gives a brief, general overview of a complicated topic
    • is focused on an experience you’ve had, but doesn’t explain how readers can learn from it
    • relies on dated pop culture references
    • recommends a tool, technique or process but doesn’t explain how it’s worked for you
    • covers a topic (that’s already been done to death) in an unoriginal way
    • is titled, or is a variation on, why copywriting is just like [something that, on the face of it, isn’t anything like copywriting at all].
    • is titled, or is a variation on, what I learnt about copywriting from [something that, on the face of it, isn’t related to copywriting at all.]

Unfortunately we're unable to discuss individual articles.
