I frequently get emails that ask if I do guest posts on the site. The answer is yes, but there are some key components to help make a guest post successful. These are outlined below in the guest post policy.
POCUS 101 has over ~11,000 Twitter followers, 11,000 YouTube subscribers, and has tens of thousands of monthly page views. The audience tends to be medical students, residents, fellows, attending physicians, and other healthcare professionals from all parts of the world.
If you want to reach this audience, the best way to do that is by writing a guest post!
You don’t necessarily need to be a POCUS “expert” and even trainees like medical students are welcome to submit a guest post. You just need to be passionate about POCUS and willing to share your experience/perspective.
I’ll promote your post on our Email Newsletter and Social Media accounts. I can also link the guest post to your Social Media profiles/Website if you wish as well.
Here are the criteria for a well-written guest post:
- Must be a high-quality post containing more than 1,000 words (ideally 1,200-2,500)
- Must follow a similar outline to my prior content. Here is a link to all POCUS 101 Blog Posts.
- The guest post cannot have a link to a proprietary site or some other product that I cannot recommend
- Have high-quality images, videos, and/or illustrations
- Images/Videos are your own or obtained from a legitimate royalty-free site (i.e. not Google Images)
- Short paragraphs, headings, and images/videos to break up the text
- The content should be pertinent to my message (“Making Point of Care Ultrasound Easy and Accessible for Anyone”)
- No plagiarized material or content that has been posted elsewhere
The topics on this site target the audience mentioned above. There are a variety of ideas to write about, but for those looking, here are some ideas:
- Complete ultrasound tutorials on a POCUS related topic that you are passionate about (i.e. nerve block technique, cardiac hemodynamics, soft tissue ultrasound, etc)
- Specialty specific POCUS topics (anesthesia, emergency medicine, surgery, internal medicine, family medicine, medical school etc)
- Any really unique or interesting POCUS case you are dying to share
- POCUS tips and tricks you have found really useful
- Successes or Pitfalls that you have encountered using POCUS
