Voquent is a worldwide community of professional voice actors, audio producers and filmmakers.
We regularly post blogs written by one of our in-house expert team, but we also share articles written by freelance bloggers or other connected businesses.
Our articles regularly reach tens of thousands of people, helping to develop and grow the audiences of other individuals and businesses.
So you're interested in writing for Voquent? That's great! But before you submit an enquiry, take some time to check out this page to see what out what's important to us.
Foremost, Voquent focuses on stories that are highly relevant to our suppliers - the voice actors. We also publish stories for the animators, video producers, creative agencies, educators and marketers who make up our customer base. So content in this wheelhouse is up-our-alley.
If you've got appropriate tips, how-to guides or an exciting story to share, we're all ears.
We reject post submissions if they have little or no relevance to our audience. If you've got a set of terrific tips for mum, that's great, but it's too general a topic to be relevant for our niche site.
We also reject poorly written posts or blog articles laden with links to spammy sites. Voquent stands for quality and market-leading ideas - if your article can be knocked out in an hour, it's probably not right for our audience.
If your article suggestions aren't well suited to our site or your content doesn't grab us, then we might not have time to respond, as we get many submissions per day. Don't feel disheartened! Take some time to think over what you were missing and get back to us with a revamped selection of headlines; practice makes perfect!
Unique, informative content
Our knowledgeable audience is always interested in learning new things. Hence, we want articles that share a new perspective on a subject, do something or create a valuable resource. We care about turning heads and eyeballs.
Articles should be completely 100% new and explicitly written for Voquent. No copies or plagiarised content, thank you. We're happy to include a line or two max about your company, product or service but any more and it's considered a sponsored post. Ideally, you should include backlinks naturally within the text.
Your article should be engaging and easy to read. Use simple, concise, and actionable language that avoids a passive voice. Using full stops in place of commas to create short sentences is preferred. Grammar is important to the flow!
We strongly recommend using apps like Grammarly and Hemingway to help you refine the text, optimising the reading experience for the average user.
An attention-grabbing headline
A quality headline is vital to breeding curiosity in readers. When submitting your article, please include a few title suggestions.
If you're struggling for inspiration, Hubspot has an excellent article about writing catchy headlines.
We find a question, ultimate guides or listicles works best. Here are a few examples we've already published:
Cite your sources
If you're making factual statements or include any figures, please always cite your sources by linking to the original article. Citations strengthen any points or any conclusions you make, show due diligence and build credibility. If you make statements with no references, we may reject your article.
Relevant to our readers
The post should be fascinating to voice actors, performers, audio or video professionals, marketers or educators. If it's about a subject our audience don't care about, we can't post it.
We are a niche community, with a readership of specialists. It is essential to engage our community with fresh, interesting perspectives on subjects that they want to read. General articles won't work, sorry.
Topics like: transcription, translation, scriptwriting, audio or video editing, recording, filming, speech, language etc., are all relevant.
The mediums we work with are also of interest, e.g. eLearning, video games, animation or social media promos.
Feel free to get creative! We don't want to say what everyone else is saying - new ideas that we agree with make for excellent articles.

4. Revisions: Allow two days for review. We'll get back to you with minor revisions, but if the writing is inferior or you haven't followed the above guidelines, we may reject the submission and cease collaboration (So spend extra time tweaking it to be just right). Assuming everyone is happy, we'll move to publication.
5. Publication: It could take a few weeks to schedule the post on Voquent.com. Once the article is published, we will email a link to you, and no further revisions are accepted. We will choose any images, but you're free to make suggestions as long as they are either owned in whole or from a reputable library image site.
Yes. Guest post submissions must adhere to the guidelines outlined above. If you're writing for a business or SEO agency, expect a fee. We'll quote you when we receive your article ideas. Alternatively, we may suggest writing about or mentioning us in a relevant article. Please contact us with 3-5 article heading ideas and we'll get back to you if we're interested.
Yes. A sponsored post is more promotional than a guest post as it talks more exclusively about a business, product or service. We do accept sponsored posts from time to time but we prefer a guest post with valuable and actionable advice for our audience. A sponsored post will require a fee or a comparative article about us on a similarly authoritative site. Please contact us to discuss.
We're not about making money from our guest posts. Often we don't charge anything. We're open to a quid pro quo, i.e. a trade where you post or write about us on an equally trustworthy site. If there is an imbalance in audience size, reach, or authority, we can make up the difference with a monetary amount if required. Still, we prefer to avoid this wherever possible.
