Guest Blogging: Where to Start
It’s important to guest blogging the right way, because doing it wrong will cost you. It could cost you viewers, respect, and love for Google. The wrong way is to post a generic post to generic blogs without any thought to your goals or audience, with generic links.
Using all of the above is the right way to guest blog.
Know the goal in advance
They should be taken to a particular page by your content – not your home page. Have a strategy in place to capitalize on the blog post by sending a very unique and detailed page to the blog’s viewers.
Special Giveaway Include
Don’t just add a blog post, add a special giveaway that is tailored to the same blog audience for which you write the guest blog post. This would appeal not only to the audience of the site, but also to the blog owner, because they’ll want to be able to give something exclusive away.
Build material Follow-Up
You would like to write follow-up articles about related material on your own blog after you write and publish a guest post. It will also assist in relating the latest material to the guest article.
Treat Uploading Guests as a long-term strategy
Don’t work for the immediate results, but rather for the long-term outcomes that can be given today and tomorrow by guest blogging. When you play your cards correctly, a properly done guest post will pay off years down the line.
Ensure your reputation is boosted by a Guest Post
You want to make sure that it makes you look good when writing a guest post, and that it makes the blogger for whom you post look good. The aim of a blog post is to give you the image of authority, experience, and someone in the know.
Your Guest Blog Posts Connect
Be sure to connect back to that blog post from time to time, with other content you write on your own website and blog. It will make the owner of the blog happy and it will also make the search engines happy.
Respond Comments Response Comments
Answer the comments that appear on the blog post for at least the first couple of months (if not forever). These questions can also be used as fodder for new blog posts, in which case you can respond to the blog post with a link to your new blog that addresses their question.
You can not only make each guest post pay off for you if you do these things, but also for the bloggers for whom you guest post. When your posts do so well in terms of numbers and return on investment, you will soon be sought out as an authority in your niche and maybe even command pay for guest posts.
