So you want to write a guest post…
We 💖💖💖 guest posts.
But we’re very picky about what we publish.
(Our blog gets over 500k page views per month, plus our 150k email subscribers. I don’t know if you’re counting, but that’s a lot of eyeballs. 👀)
Read on to find out everything you need to know to submit to the Process Street blog.
🌟Aim: Provide the best content out there for SaaS and B2B executives.
✅ Essential criteria:

👌 Nice to have:

We’re fanatical about processes. Shocking, right?
If you/your organization has a process that is:
- All of the above
we definitely want to hear about it.
Same goes for experiences. Have you done something no one else has? Have you done something everyone does, but ten times better? Have an insider view of a particular operation/practice/etc.?
That said, these are the topic areas we’re most interested in:
- Cool, unique processes
- Business operations
- Tech innovations
- Startup life
- Onboarding processes
⛔ Just no:
- Beginner 101 content
- Recycled and/or oversaturated content
- Overly self-promotional content (see the bit about links below)
