… how to write guest post?

Guest posting is the best way to get new subscribers and more traffic.

Why guest post?

Website owners spend a lot of time worrying about traffic and trying a variety of different methods.

Some work great and others just rob a lot of your time away from important things.

Most of traffic methods usually lead to bloggers burning valuable time instead of writing new content or seriously promoting their work.

Many of the methods are not even worth the efforts made to use them.

But guest posting is the most effective way to build traffic (and HQ links) to your website.

Promoting your own website is hard and can be very tiring.

  • You push “Tweet”, “Like”, “G+”, “Pin it”, “LinkedIn” buttons, and write comments all over the internet, but readers don’t come.
  • You make keyword rich titles and content for good SEO, but readers don’t come.
  • You buy links and social shares from Fiverr, SEOclerks but readers don’t come.

So you must learn now the power and good way of guest posting when You start blogging for a new site!

Research your niche

I had more blogs in past: reality show blog, cafeteria blog, business news blog, and some more. I made them profitable, and sold for $1.000-$10.000.

Based on experience the most effective traffic building ways were:

  1. the good, viral content,
  2. the quality guest posting.

Ask yourself, before you burn your time like no more tomorrow:

  1. Is there website relevant to my website?
  2. Do they accept guest posts?
  3. What topics are they writing on?
  4. Will their readers be interested in what I write?
  5. Are there any topics they are missing?
  6. Are my experiences useful to their readers?
  7. What style of writing do they use?

Asking these questions and answering them honestly will help you come to the conclusion of whether or not the blog is worth guest posting on.

If have a few great blogs to write on… get out a piece of paper, whiteboard, or open a document and start writing blog post ideas.

You should brainstorm as many post ideas that would fit with the guest posting blog as you possibly can.

Then start to narrow the posts down into posts you think are most interesting and easily researched and written.

How to plan guest post

If you found the perfect possibility, the writing is the next step.

First begin with an outline of major points for the blog post ideas you liked best. Try hard to get the main point of your post idea in the outlines you write.

Then look for the posts with the clearest outlines and most interesting topics.

Start thinking of:

  • stories
  • reviews,
  • analogies,
  • tools,
  • comparisons,
  • infographics,
  • or anything else which could compliment your post.

Then do some research on the topic to make sure your opinion is correct, or at least arguable.

The next step is different for many bloggers, so choose carefully.

Make contact

Guest blogging opportunities 2016Your options are to email the blog owner with your request to guest post, brief outline, and contact information to see if it is worth writing up, or you can go ahead and write the entire thing.

Use own email like jason@hqbusinessblog.com instead of hqbuseinessblog@outlook.com, or hqblog.jason@gmail.com.

Gmail is a perfect email service for personal messaging, but isn’t in your business! Unfortunately, most of spam message on contact forms comes from Gmail.com, Aol, and Yahoo.

Writing a guest post

The key is to write your very best content for others! The owners will love it and so will their readers.

Then traffic and links will flow to your blog.

One way You do this is by making the emails very brief when You send your guest posts.

Include:

  1. Your name

  3. Proposed title
  4. Main text
  5. Images (w/ attribution)
  6. Byline
