The Process

1. Once your article(s) are submitted (use the Submit an Article button in your Membership Drop Down Menu), it is reviewed and accepted or you will be contacted with recommended edits.

2. Once your article is accepted it is scheduled by Ashley. We have a publishing calendar and are typically scheduled out up to 4 weeks.

3. Blogs that are ‘special & time sensitive’ based on a calendar event recognized by a holiday or worldly event are scheduled before the event happens. More details on time sensitive articles below

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS & HOW TO SUBMIT:

We STRICTLY adhere to these MINIMUM Requirements. PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.

– Articles MUST BE well-written in English.

– Professionally edited and ready to publish. Need an editor? Contact L.E. Saba

– Between 500 – 1000 words submitted as a Word Document.

We WILL NOT accept articles that do not meet these basic, minimum requirements. Your article will be kicked back to you if not well written, properly edited and submitted within these requirements.

BEST PRACTICES & SUGGESTIONS

We ONLY Publish Value: Your article should be educational, inspirational, motivational, informative or story-telling in some way. The reader should walk away with a feeling they gained something valuable, NOT feeling like they were ‘sold to.’ We will not publish articles that are a ‘sales pitch’ for your product or service. Provide written value and they will seek out your services.

– Your WU profile is linked to your article in your Author’s Bio box appearing under your article.

PREMIUM & PREMIUM PLUS MEMBERS EXTRA FEATURES: In the body of your article, you can include 1 hyperlinked outbound  link. If you have multiple links or sources, only 1 will be hyperlinked so please be sure to specify in the “Comments” field in your submission form which link to hyperlink.

💥💥💥💥💥 Introducing In Content Ads. 💥💥💥💥💥 If you wish to bring EXTRA ATTENTION and a call to action to anything: A product, Service, Newsletter sign up, etc. check out what an ‘In Content Ad’ looks like HERE. You will have the option in your Submit an Article form to purchase this ad and include an image and link that will stay in your article as long as it is posted!

Here is a video explaining In Content Ads:

IMAGES: We highly encourage you to submit images that add to the value and interest to your blog article to be included in the body of your post (i.e. Food for recipe articles, Step by Step photos, etc.) We select the Main Featured Images for published blogs. All images submitted must be YOUR property (Either you took them or obtained them with publishing privileges via a free or paid image site) Contain no call to action, selling or promoting in any way.

VIDEOS and VLOGS: To accompany an article and enhance a reader’s experience, you can add your video in the ‘Submit an Article’ form when you submit. Share link to YouTube and submit written content at least 3 paragraphs long and NOT just a video. If in your video you are calling out your social media sites and properties such as your blog, website, etc. it is mandatory to include ‘Find me on The Wellness Universe’. 

Video length limitation of no more than 10 minutes, *unless approved. Please keep in mind, ‘Brief is Better’. A shorter video has the best chance of being viewed from beginning to end. No video that appears as an ad (promoting an item or service) will be posted unless the ‘In Content Ad’ fee is paid (see above). If we can answer the question ‘Where can I buy this?‘ in your video, it will be considered an advertisement. 

*Ted Talks and professionally recorded content will be reviewed for inclusion on an individual basis.

BLOG SERIES: Opportunity for Premium & Premium Plus Members. If you are submitting for a blog series, ALL articles in your series must be submitted in order for your series to be scheduled. A series would be defined as a minimum of 3, maximum of 7 articles surrounding one topic or theme. Writing a series is a great way to position yourself as an expert in the area of wellness that you represent. Please fill out 1 blog form for each article in your series and specify which part in the series it represents. (Part 1, Part 2, etc.)

RE-BLOGGING: If your article is published on The Wellness Universe, you cannot publish it anywhere for at least 30 days  (including your own website/blog). Likewise, if you have published your article on your own website or elsewhere within the last 30 days, please wait to submit it. This is important because your content will be penalized by search engines and receive a much lower ranking.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ IMPORTANT ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ BENEFITS & EXPECTATIONS: HELPING YOU SHINE! 

We share your article to over 1 Million Followers on social media the day you are published. Upgraded members, we tag your handles when shared as an extra opportunity to increase your following. The day your article posts, you are kindly REQUIRED to support your own content by sharing it and replying to your comments that appear at the bottom of your article. Please check often the day of and the days following as you will not receive automated notifications. Your support for your article is essential. You are encouraged to visit the Featured Blog and support your fellow authors with sharing their blog and commenting. It’s a great way to build relationships. Those who GIVE SUPPORT, GET SUPPORT. Those who do not support their own content within 48 hours of publication may not be published in the future.
