Guest Blogging: How to Get Started

by Martha Giffen

Guest blogging is a good thing.

Whether you are the giver or the receiver.

Using a guest blogger.. . . .

There are several advantages to using a guest blogger.  It adds variety to your blog.  Also, more credibility and different content.  It also can increase traffic.  Bingo!  Isn’t that what we’re after?  More people looking at our blogs?

The key is to know who you are asking.  Be familiar with their blog and what they are writing.  Make sure it is a good “fit” for your own.

Take the time to promote your guest blogger and find out on the front end if they plan to do the same.  Make it an event.  Create a little buzz!

Being the guest blogger. . . .

Writing a post for another blog introduces you to a whole new audience.  We are in the business of marketing.  The more places you are seen and heard, the better!

Offer your services to other bloggers.  Find sites in your niche that you like, go ahead and write your best, most dynamic post, and offer it to them.  Have the work already completed.  It will make for an easier “yes” to come your way!

Take the time to promote.  This should be a no-brainer!

Where to connect the dots. . .

After you have contacted people you know you want to trade blog posts with, here’s three more resources:

BlogSynergy

BloggerLinkUp

MyBlogGuest

All are free to sign up.  You can find guest bloggers in just about every niche and also volunteer to be the guest yourself.  It’s a win/win.

Let the guest blogging begin!

Peace,

p.s. I will be practicing what I’m preaching. Stay tuned for some ROCK STAR guest bloggers!
