While we’re not all about the rules, after all, they were made to be broken, there’s some places guidelines are rather helpful.

Before you reach out to Scoop, we’d very much appreciate it if you can review how we do things around here to save time for both of us. That way we can entirely avoid an awkward email exchange and we can both get back to doing whatever it is we do best.

Here’s the need to know:

1. Guest Posts and Linking Policy

This site doesn’t publish guest posts. The end. So please don’t pitch us with them. Also, we don’t take link requests, as this doesn’t make Google happy to have us engaging in poor SEO practices.

2. Telesummits

As a rule, we don’t participate in anything that requires our list size or for us to send solo emails to our list. We adore anything that’s a win-win, but we’re super protective of the people who trust us enough to hand over their email. We won’t take advantage of that to help you build your list.

3. Guesting on Your Podcast or Website

We absolutely love to share actionable ideas and intelligence via guest interviews and blog posts so feel free to reach to us if you think we’d be a good fit. Once the show or post goes live we’ll happily promote this to our social media following and email list. However, like the telesummits above, please don’t tell us how to do it or demand we do it for that matter. If you only want access to our community, keep on moving.

4. Joint Ventures/Affiliates

While we’re confident you’re awesome and your thing/course/ebook/product is too, but we only promote and participate in things where we use the product, have done the course/program or have a pre-existing business relationship.
