Ideal Content Submission Examples
These are examples of written and video content that you can emulate but not copy.
- Written Content:
This blog has a word count of 2,500 and is clearly well-researched. There is also the presence of visuals like screenshots and videos. It provides practical value to readers who are eager to know about the SEO tool.
Most importantly, create the content with your readers in mind and write in a conversational tone to make it easy for us and them to understand.
- Video Content:
If writing a 1,500-word content seems like a hassle, video content as seen above is greatly anticipated too. There are plenty of visuals and guidance to teach audiences how to use BiQ. The content is rich and thought-provoking with a clear voice-over that can be understood by all.
