When writing for Vacation Rental Formula, it is important to understand to whom you'll be writing.


Said another way, you need to be clear on who visits this site and who will be reading and learning from the content you submit.


The people who read Vacation Rental Formula are short-term rental entrepreneurs and successful employees of rental agencies.


They're busy people looking for shortcuts, tips, tricks, and information that will help them start, build, or grow their rental business.




Your post must be on one of these topics and it must help people start, build, or grow their rental business:

  • Research and Understand the Vacation Rental Business

  • Preparing for Rental

  • Create a Marketing Strategy

  • Managing the Operation of Your Business

  • Creating A Core Guest Experience Plan

  • Managing Properties For Others

  • Branding & Marketing As A Property Manager

  • Attracting Owners

  • Data & Revenue Management

  • You may not publish your article/post anywhere else, including your own blog or website or blog. My suggestion is that you post a brief “tease” or summary on your site that links to the post.

  • You may provide up to four (4) external links: one for your website, one for your bio or About page, one for your social media outlet of choice and one link to a cited resource.

  • Your post should be between 600 and 1200 words long.

  • If we publish your guest post, you must be the one to drive and respond to any and all of the reader's comments.

  • You are responsible for promoting your post on social media. We will promote it as well.

  • You will need to provide an image for your post. The image should be 1060px wide and 510px tall. You must own the rights to use the image you provide.



  • First, run your post through Grammarly's free service. Please don't submit an article with errors; it will get rejected. My team does not have time to edit your work.

  • Second, run your error-free post through the HemingwayApp (also free). Shoot for a 7th grade or below reading level and a minimal amount of “hard to read, adverb, passive voice” errors.

  • We will review your post/article for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. If we make any major changes, we will email the post back to you for your approval before posting.

  • We may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale as to why I think the post is important.



We understand the amount of time and effort it takes to write a blog post.

The only guest posts we will publish are those which meet our guidelines and the ones we feel will be interesting and beneficial to our readers.

If we do not approve your guest post, you may request a brief explanation, but, unless otherwise requested, we won't provide any details as to why.



If your article meets these guidelines you may proceed to fill out the form below.



Though this isn't a requirement, if we're not connected, We'll wonder why you're interested in writing a guest post in the first place.


If you can make it easy for us, we'd greatly appreciate it and hope to return the favor!


If we reject your post, you can do whatever you want with it, including publishing it somewhere else.


If we approve your post, we will send you a link to preview the formatting and structure for the VRF website. We can work out the day, but we typically post on Mondays.


We are excited that you'd consider writing a guest post and look forward to hearing from you!
