#1 Active Users To be eligible to write for our blog, first of all you must have an active Chatfuel account.

TYPES OF CONTENT ACCEPTED
If you found yourself in any of above proposed combinations, lets proceed to next criteria:
What kind of content do we want to see on our blog?
#1 Original When we say original, we are thinking of both: topic and the article as a whole. Be wise, be creative, be unique. But, also - be searchable.
#2 Useful To be searchable means to be useful. So do your research: what are the most demanding unresolved problems that people encounter when it comes to usage of messenger chatbots, messenger marketing... in general, or in a specific niche. You can even brainstorm in our community, and get a common solution.
#3 Researched Well researched articles are always the best articles. Also, be sure your tips are really working, and back yourself up with some screen shots, videos, and/or links to existing case studies.
#4 Educative The one thing that excites everyone here in Chatfuel is constant learning, development, and growth. And it is very important for us to do it together wit our users. We hope you have the same feeling about this, and that your article shows it.
What kind of content we won’t consider for publishing?
#3 Press Release
#4 Out of chatbot industry
Please, be aware that you are here to make a contribution to Chatfuel’s Community. We are here to grow together, not to spam.
#1 Each sentence should contain semantic meaning and organic aspects. Be sure to read everything you wrote, maybe your thought has been changed somewhere accidentally.
#2 Put yourself in the reader’s place. Maybe a lot of things for you are working by default, because you spent so much time learning them, or maybe it’s your daily routine to do it, so you don’t recognize it as something that needs explanation. So whenever you finish a piece, go through it once again and check every term, every step that you put in text, and think did you know what it means when you were a beginner in your field?
#3 Academic nausea of the document should not exceed 8%. No one wants to read article that no one can understand. Same advice like for #2
#4 The article should not contain spelling and punctuation errors. Be sure to proofread it. Send it to your colleagues, to your friend or to your parents. Doesn’t matter, just check your grammar.
#5 The uniqueness of content should be 93 - 100%. Use your own words, and if you are incorporating someones sentences or article paragraphs, please link to those properly.
#6 No irrelevant links. If we notice that there is any unnatural linking which is clearly for promotional purpose and it doesn't contribute to the article in whole, we will be forced to unlink the phrase.
#7 Length of the article. The ideal length of the article goes from 1000-1500 words. We won’t consider anything that goes under 1000 words, or is over 2000 words.
#8 No fluff, please. We are all here to learn, not just to pass our time. So please be respectful to all readers and their time.
#9 Visual Formatting. Be sure to enrich your article with enough relevant photos, screenshots, and videos than can help the readers understand everything you want to say.
