Guest Blog, Write for Maroon Oak


Do you believe in business & career enrichment for women? Have publishing or blogging credits? An in-depth understanding about your area of work? Then we’d love to share your message, tips and advice with our audience!

Guest Blogging on Maroon Oak is not a paid opportunity, but given our reach on the web (ranking on Google & Alexa) and social media, your work gets great exposure!

Blogging Guidelines

Topics we love (but not limited to):

Entrepreneurship, job hunting, success, mindset, social media for small business, communication, blogging, career options, work-life balance, How-to’s (how to start a career in …… Or how to use Evernote etc.)

We are looking for fresh perspectives on topics most relevant to women. Whether it’s an advice piece or a personal story of how you created a business out of a hobby, we want your personal voice, combined with examples and meaningful takeaways for our audience.

What we need:
Each guest post must be your own original work that has not been published on any other website, forum, chat or social media network. Suggested length 800 – 1500 words.

If you’re pitching a post, please share a query (1-2 paras) outlining your basic ideas. Please also include details of your Blog, Social Media and other publishing links.

If you’re sending a completed article, please paste it in the body of an email or as a Google Doc with a shareable link (but not as a document file).

Do include proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.

Handy tips:

Do read the previously published articles to get an idea of content our audience likes and needs . To avoid unnecessary duplication of effort, review the existing articles under your category of expertise.

Please also utilize the search option on our blog to view previously published articles on topics you might be thinking of pitching( to avoid unnecessary duplication of content).

Support your advice with examples – e.g. here’s why aggressive networking tactics don’t work or how you can grow your business through collaboration.

Make sure your article isn’t overly self-promotional – while your experience matters and you should call attention to it, an excess of advertising undermines pretty much everything you’re sharing. You can share links to your product or brand in your author bio.

The fine print:
We reserve the right to edit your article prior to posting for content, grammar, tone, clarity and length. However, we will send you the final edited draft before publishing, for  your review.
 Maroon Oak will create a main graphic for the post, so there is no need to send in one. However, we welcome images and/or video to accompany your guest post as long as proof is submitted that it does not infringe on copyright laws.

Plagiarism or copyright infringement is not permitted. When quoting others, please make sure to properly cite your source.

You are welcome to repost the article on other websites, with the attribution – Originally published on
 You indemnify Maroon oak from any potential legal liability that may arise from your published articles.

New Member Benefit – Video!

Maroon Oak’s Video Blog is another awesome step in our initiative to grow Member reach and provide them more visibility with their audience. Members can share a short video about their work and tip(s).


Maroon Oak will share your video across the web and social media.

All you need to do this is to record a short video related to you and your work and email or text it to us.

Guidelines make it easy!

We have enclosed 4 key tips on creating impactful videos. 

Share Content your Audience loves

The most popular video content – how-to’s and tips, hands down! Share a tip (or many) about something from your area of expertise.

E.g. A quick primer on the benefits of yoga. Or top 5 reasons to have a beauty routine. Hidden hacks about Facebook pages. Why I volunteer.

Duration – Attention Spans are shrinking

We suggest keeping it to under 2 minutes – that’s plenty to share something meaningful AND not losing your audience. (Most of the most popular ads don’t exceed 30-40 seconds).

Styling – Make it interesting, fun, humorous, thought provoking

Breakdown your video into 3 main parts. A handy script or cheatsheet always helps (think fewer takes).

Head: Start with your name and company. (I am xyz, the owner/founder of or a PR head with…). Tell us what you’re going to share.

Body: You can show or tell your message. Use a demo, share a screen with voiceover or stay in frame yourself – it’s all up to you.

End: I’m (your full name) and a ‘thanks for watching’ message.

The Maroon Oak team will take care of adding captions, so your name and company name is clearly visible to viewers.
Note: These videos are meant for sharing tips on your subject matter expertise with your audience. Please do not make them primrily about self- promotion.
Layout – Always Horizontal!

You can record using your phone, but remember to turn it sideways before recording. (Else your video will have 2 ugly sidebars on both ends)


Maroon Oak reserves the right to approve, edit or reject any content.

Present a webinar on Maroon Oak


Be a part of our Speaker Series (Webinars, Lives and Virtual Summits) from Maroon Oak-  an initiative to provide quality content to our audience and visibility to speakers.

Look out for details on our Lives and Virtual Summit!

Webinar Guidelines

How it works
The Speaker Series will be a part of regular events and will showcase high quality content for our Member and non-Member audience, free of cost.
The goal of these events is to educate, not sell!
This is not a paid opportunity for speakers, however, given our substantial reach, your brand and work will receive great and repeated visibility through these events.
The Maroon Oak team will:
Invite participants through our social media and email reach.
We will create and set up remote broadcasting through Zoom. Manage the logistics on signups and attendance.
Assist you (in any other aspect of your presentation if you need it. Just shoot us your questions.)
Maroon Oak will also share, promote the event and create a buzz on the web and social media!
Format & Specifics
Content – Share what your audience loves!
You can present on any topics where you have expertise and which are relevant to our audience – e.g success, hiring, skills, business development, productivity, digital and social media, wellness, work-life balance etc.
However, each Webinar will cover a specific, based niche topic with clear advice and actionable takeaways!
The most popular content – how-to’s, tips and hacks, hands down!
E.g. 9 ways to create a great website design, 6 strategies to use your Speaking Skills to make money, Hidden hacks about Facebook pages, What Corporate experience taught me about Entrepreneurship, style tips for working women etc.
The webinar will provide your work and brand visibility but it is not a promotional vehicle. You are welcome to offer one service or an opt-in for the attendees.
Presentation Format
The webinar will be pre-recorded which we will share with the audience. You will need to email this to us beforehand. While the broadcast will be through screen share, your presence will be required for Q&As (via chat).
The broadcast date and time will be finalized based on mutual agreement; please send in your webinar at least two weeks prior to the date. We will also send you reminders.
You you can create either a Presentation with text and images with voiceover (recommended, as visuals tend to be the best way to learn), a Video or stay in frame yourself – it’s up to you.

Duration – Attention spans are shrinking!

We suggest keeping your presentation to under 20 minutes – approx. 12-14 slides. That’s plenty to share something meaningful AND not lose your audience. That will also leaves us enough time for audience Q&As.
Styling – Make it interesting, fun, humorous, thought provoking!
Break down your webinar content into 3 main parts.
Head: Start with your name and company. (I am xyz, the owner/founder of …). Tell us what you’re going to share.
Content: You can show or tell your message. Step by step works best.
End: I’m (your full name) and a ‘thanks for watching’ message.
