Mailshake customers come from all different roles, industries, and company sizes. For that reason, we’re open to wide variety of topics. A few examples of some of the topics we’ve covered in the past:
- Cold email outreach strategy (prospecting, subject lines, followups, etc.)
- Sales team building and management
- Step-by-step guides on a specific sales tactic or strategy
- How to leverage cold email to build relationships and links

If you have an idea related to any of these topics, or another topic area you think is relevant, we are open to anything that helps our customers acquire more customers, clients, and relationships!
In this Google form, include:
- Your background/who you are
- One to three topic ideas
- A 1 – 3 sentence explanation of each topic
- Links to similar content that you’ve written before
Due to the volume of guest post submissions we receive, if you don’t follow these instructions, we will not respond.
If your topic is a good fit for the blog, we’ll respond letting you know to get started. Articles should be a minimum of 1,500 words, and preferably between 2,000 and 2,500.
When you’ve completed your first draft of the article, send it back in a Google doc, along with a 2 – 3 sentence byline and headshot. We’ll leave comments and feedback within the Google doc and work with you to edit the article and get it ready to publish.
We reserve the right to update your article in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness, as well as add calls-to-action and links to other Mailshake content after it has been published.
Guest posts published on the Mailshake blog may not be published elsewhere.
We will not accept guest posts that:
- Cover topics we’ve already written about – please search the blog to make sure we have not covered your topic before
- Are poorly written (we reserve final editorial review standards)
- Are overly self-promotional, link too much to your content, or are effectively an attempt to sell your product
