Guest Blogging is by far the greatest marketing tactic I’ve ever used in my years of internet marketing experience.
Why? How? Who?
Guest Blogging is the best marketing tactic because it brings in hundreds, potentially thousands, of highly targeted visitors that can be easily converted into subscribers, sign-ups, or even sales.
Guest Blogging can be done using a very simple process. Write. Submit. Post. That’s the guest blogging process in a nut shell.
Guest Blogging works best when you guest post on popular blogs. Guest posting on a small blog may give you a boost in the search engines, but not many instant visitors.
Learning from me, or OnibalusiBamideleis the smartest thing you might ever do. Looking at all of the most successful guest bloggers, Onibalusi stands out.
We both use one core process. Our content rocks! Simple, but it’s the truth. I spend at least two hours writing every post. It is a whole bunch of work, but most of the successful bloggers spend much more than that.
Both of those posts were ones that I found to be next to perfect. I spent hours writing, editing, editing, editing, and editing just one last time.
GET TO WORK
Sitting around all lazy… Reading or watching every article, ebook, video, webinar, seminar, or report is the average internet marketer’s life. It’s time to stop. You are experiencing information overload.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve completely shut off my internet connection just for some peace and quiet to write my articles. No distractions.
Write, don’t edit. I’m pretty good about this, but others may not be. You need to write then edit after you are completely done writing. Not write a little then edit… write more, then edit again… write one more time then edit.
If you address the blog owner using sir, or mam, you will not increase your guest posting success rate by 3.98%. I’m not going to sit here and teach you how to make your pitch irresistible.
The pitch to the blogger doesn’t matter. It’s the article itself.
This is how one of my most successful pitches went… (I was in a rush.)
This article was written for [blog name].
Surprisingly I received a reply a day later saying that the article really caught the editors eye Now, I honestly don’t think it had anything to with my overall pitch, but you never know.
Imagine… instead of you going to the popular bloggers, what if all of the popular bloggers came to your article, and if good enough decided they wanted to publish it?
Who’s Your Blogger? allows you to do exactly that.
I love having the popular bloggers come to me. It gets my guest post published faster, and the blogs that I guest post on seem to becoming more and more popular.
Yet, the older method (Go to each blogs contact form, give them a decent pitch, and after a week or so they might reply.) still works.
Guest Blogging has become incredibly popular. In fact, it is the only marketing strategy I use other than my Guest Blogging Secrets Facebook fan page.
