To post it on your web blog or post the article on some external blogs – that is the question. Well, it is tough for a writer to make a quick decision because both have advantages and disadvantages. If you post on your blog, it will help you drive traffic and it will stay as an asset but if you post on someone else’s blog, it will bring reorganization and help you build brand image around your blog.
Being a successful guest blogger is about having the right approach to follow for guest blogging on a consistent basis, and perfecting this approach to ensure every guest post you write is always a success. I have been writing guest posts for years now, and as a result I have great experience with guest blogging. In this article I will be sharing a few tips with you to help you be a better guest blogger.
When it comes to building your career as a guest blogger the first step you should take is to work on delivering your best content. While delivering mediocre content might get you published on some smaller blogs, ultimately, only quality guest posts will be published on the blogs that will give you results.
Don’t just write any article and submit it to the blogs in your field. Work on writing quality articles always. Work on building a reputation for quality, and work hard on getting known for the quality you provide.
The best way to ensure you deliver great content is by sharing your experience with the readers of the blog you are targeting. If you recently embarked on an adventure in your field, and you think the results of your adventure is worth sharing, write it into a blog post, and provide people with the lessons you learned. That way, you will be able to get a lot more results on the long run.
Another way to make you a better guest blogger is to be on the lookout for ways to maximize your guest post. What I mean by this is that you shouldn’t just submit a guest post and expect the traffic to come. Learn new tricks. Perfect your current techniques, and look for ways to get results from your guest post on the long run.
For example, instead of writing a guest post and linking to your homepage, you might also want to try linking your guest posts to internal pages with keywords you want to rank for.
It is one thing to get your guest post published, it is another thing to make sure a particular blogger will always accept new guest posts from you. A great way you can significantly increase the chances of the guest posts you submit being a success is by actively replying the comments on your guest posts. That way, you will be able to build a relationship with the readers of the blog you just submitted a guest post to, and as a result end up converting a lot of them to your side.
