Guest Blogging has been one of the under-utilized methods of driving traffic to websites and online businesses. When you write an informative article and publish it on another website related to your niche or topic, you will get exposure and backlink to your website or product in exchange. This process will be beneficial to both you and the website owner because his blog will get an additional update while you get exposure.
In order to get maximum results, you should look for a website with good rankings and a huge amount of visitors as well on your part write an article of unique and high quality. Also you should read the website’s previous posts and observe what you might have as a result of publishing your article, is it traffic? potential loyal readers? Or rankings?. This would give you a clear idea of deciding if the website has what you actually want.
Moreover, you should arrange your website in a way that the other website owner would know everything he or she have know about you and what to expect from you as his contributor. If you have a disorganized website or very bad writing skills, it would send a message to the other website owner that you don’t have anything good to offer. I suggest you give your website a nice web address, good description, lay out your interest, stick to your niche or primary topic, and present your ideas in a more professional way.
Your guest post would easily get approved when you have a fully designed and well written website with topics related to the topic on your guest post. If it happens you don’t have a website, you should provide links to your previous guest posts published on other websites. I suggest you provide links to articles written by you only and published on reputed blogs or else you send a bad message of you to the website owner.
Having guest posting to work for you is not an easy job, it’s important you be consistent in your efforts with smaller websites that would help you reach higher websites with huge amount of traffic and a good ranking, then you must try to build a strong relationship with its owner. From then you will notice how guest blogging really pays off.
Make sure you include a link to your website or product, social profiles (Like facebook, twitter, google+ and Linkedin) and an author bio to your guest post so that the website readers can get to know about you. I recommend your social profiles links goes inside the author bio and it should be put below the article content so as not to distract the reader.
After getting your post published, you should try to engage with the website readers by answering the user comments so that you’ll win their trust and that would make them visit your website to read more of your informative articles.
Want to promote your website or product for a better exposure? Why not write for this website. You might even get paid as your article passes the editorial review. This sounds very cool to me 😀
