Why Use a Guest Blogger Application Form Template?

If you accept contributor content on your site, the process for approving it can often be less than thorough. Someone emails you with an idea or a fully-developed post, and you publish it.

It’s a great way to build content on your site, but it makes it easy to get burned by authors and posts that haven’t been thoroughly vetted.

When you use a guest blogger application form template, the application process is standardized. Everyone has to provide the same information. It might take you a little bit more time to vet them, but your site’s quality will be worth it.

You always want to know your contributor’s intent. Are they publishing once or do they hope to become a regular?

Let them describe their planned topics to you so you can tell at a glance if those fit your own site topics.

Ask for links to published pieces and make sure the applicant is listed as the author. This helps you to see what other publications have worked with this author, in addition to giving you a chance to do a quality check. How does all of it apply to your site?

Using a template streamlines the process. And if you need changes, remember that all WPForms templates are 100% customizable using our easy-to-use drag-and-drop form builder. You can make the guest blogger application form template suit your needs.
