What can I do to entice more website owners to publish my guest posts? This is a common question, and the answer to it is easy to comprehend. These well-thought-out tips will help you become a successful guest blogger:

Spare No Effort to Deliver Your Best Pitches

Unlike the famous bloggers who have made a name for themselves, you have to make a compelling argument to be the next guest blogger who gets one or two posts accepted. To understand why look at things from the perspective of website owners. They have what blogging enthusiasts want: a well-established platform with plenty of followers and visitors. Therefore, they probably receive thousands of pitches per year. If you don’t want your argument to be rejected, you must be smart and persuasive. More importantly, you need to be sure that you’re targeting the right websites and blogs.

Where Should You Guest Post

Understand that many blogs are like garbage collectors. They are always ready and willing to accept posts from writers. That’s why it helps to be selective. What you should go after is any blog that appreciates and demands quality content because it will likely have a broad audience. People enjoy subscribing to blogs that contain great posts.

Choose from a Short List of Options

The importance of a shortlist can’t be understated. A lot of fantastic blogs have too many restrictions. If you’re guest posting to drive more traffic to your website, set your focus on blogs that permit backlinks. Also, take a good look at the posts you see. How many of them are on the topics that you like to cover? You’ll lure a good amount of people to your website if your published posts showcase your level of authority and awareness. Furthermore, you should make pitches to blog owners with a substantial social following because they might mention your post if it meets their expectations.

Prepare to Ingratiate Yourself

Sending intriguing requests to targeted blog owners won’t suffice in most cases. To get the permission that you seek, chances are you’ll have to get in their good books. This can entail shouting out their featured blog posts on Twitter or commenting on their blog entries with regularity. They’ll believe your thoughtful and constructive feedback even more if you make it known that you’re a frequent reader of their works.

Come Up With Some Winning Topics

If you come across an unrestricted blog that covers a wide range of topics, you’ll have better luck with getting your health-based article published. Nevertheless, take the time to come up with some topic ideas. They’re winning and worth using if they’re fascinating and pertinent. Your off-topic ideas will prove to be useless, especially with blogs that are aimed at a specific demographic.

For this reason, you ought to get in the habit of writing tailored posts for whichever blog you choose. This will be easy to do if you read the articles on the blog. Search for interesting topics that appear to be old. You can write updated copies that expound on previous posts.

Dos and Don’ts When Asking to Contribute Guest Posts

When you check your private email, do you get frustrated with seeing multiple spam messages? Most blog owners share your sentiments; they dislike spam just as much as you do. This means you can’t make grammatical errors or take a depersonalized approach because they will assume your message belongs in the spam folder. What’s in it for me? This question is at the forefront of their minds, so don’t be dissuaded or shocked if any bloggers are indifferent to your needs.

Blog owners are more concerned about themselves and their readers. However, some of them enjoy working with guest bloggers, so take the time to learn about them. Gather as much information as possible so that you’ll have enough insight to make a pitch that will interest the owners. Surely, they would like to know how their audiences will benefit from reading your guest posts. Although you should use a friendly tone to keep from sounding too arrogant, it’s OK to be assertive. The key is to inject some of your personality into your pitch.

In Conclusion

Being a guest blogger is a proven way to catapult yourself to the next level. You can have much success by being consistent, patient, and helpful. Understandably, blog owners will skip your amazing posts if they aren’t formatted correctly. Give them a well-structured article that requires no editing, and you’ll have less trouble with accomplishing your goals. You can always buy guest post opportunities to save time, energy and effort.
