Guest Blogging For Online Exposure
One of my favorite ways to gain more online exposure is guest blogging.
You already know that blogging – and blogging frequently – will boost traffic to your site. Did you realize that you can also take advantage of others bloggers traffic too?
You can do so by guest blogging. Since it takes up a lot of time to write really interesting posts many bloggers are eager to take advantage of your offer!
Blogging is time intensive and in order to keep their site fresh with relevant content and get other tasks accomplished bloggers may look for experts to share their information and inspiration with their readers.
So when you the expert in your niche comes along and asks if they can take over blogging duties for a day, it’s a welcomed relief!
How do you go about guest blogging?
Start by finding blogs in your niche. Go to Google.com and type in your niche keyword.
If it’s a site with ample traffic, then go ahead and create a blog post that you feel would be a good fit on the site.
If you deliver an article that’s not relevant to their niche – OR, not in line with what they teach, then it will prove to them that you didn’t care enough to look their site over, and they’ll decline your offer.
Deliver the content in both Word format and Notepad (TXT) so that they can quickly paste it into their site and schedule it for publications.
Make sure you include a bio blurb for the blog owner. This is something that comes after the blog post that tells a little about who the author is – with a link back to your domain. It shouldn’t be too long – maybe 2 or 3 sentences, max.
What I have found many times is that other peoples blogs have people anxious to read what it is you have to say and comment on your post.
Make sure you check your posts to see if other people are leaving comments so you can respond back to them. This will help you build relationships with them.
