What do we all want?
More traffic, more leads, and more sales!
If you are a blogger, here’s a trick for you to get more traffic.
Guest post on other people’s blogs!
What is guest posting?
The idea with guest posting is that you write an article for another blogger’s blog.You are writing a post that will be interesting to the other blogs readers. The other blogger gets some free content and you get a link or two to your blog.
Develop the idea and write the guest post first.
You write the blog article on spec. You don’t know if they are going to approve it or not. Just like how a writer may write a book or a screenplay before he gets someone to agree to publish it.
Then you pitch it to the blog you want it to appear on.
This should be a win win situation.
The blogger gets free content from you. They have to do less work that day because they have a guest post that should be pretty much ready to go with only minor editing.
They are also getting great content. Hopefully you wrote one of your best pieces to submit to their blog. You don’t want to submit a bad article! You want to submit one of your best!
You get more traffic to your blog. You get exposure to a new audience. You get to put a link or two in the article and get to build a name for yourself with a new group of potential blog readers. It could mean dozens or even hundreds of new readers over night!
How do you do it?
Here is an article on how to guest post at ProBlogger. This post is even a guest post!
Do I accept guest posts?
I haven’t accepted guest posts yet, but I’m looking to allow them in the future. If you can write on a topic that relates well to my blog I will consider it. If you are writing about some junk program or something that doesn’t relate to network marketing then don’t bother submitting Read the article from pro blogger on guest posting. It will give you some ideas about how to go about the process.
Speaking of guest posts…
I’m now guest blogging once a week over at that MLM Beat. George Fourie has put together a great group of bloggers. You should check it out. My first post was: Why you should NOT use your MLM company web site!
