Simple Steps You Can Take to Get Your Guest Posts Approved in a Jiffy
Guest Blogging is a great way to reach out to your target audience with something of value and win their trust, and in the meantime, get some unique visitors and link juice for your own blog or website. Sounds like a hell of a package that can give a much needed boost to your blog in more than one ways, except that there’s a catch i.e. all of the aforementioned goodies are attainable, only if you can write a good quality post and get it approved at some reasonable blog. For the highly gifted writers, it might be a walk in the park, but for the majority it can turn out to be a very formidable task. Guest blogging is definitely not like the good old article marketing, where you can write a below par article and get it published on many different article directories in next to no time. Not only a guest post will take much more time in writing, it will take quite some emails and follow up emails before you can get it published with your links.
Guest Posting Simple Steps You Can Take to Get Your Guest Posts Approved in a Jiffy
Following are some tips to help you make the most of this wonderful tactic, and improve upon the approval time and likelihood of your guest posts. Remember that the first time; it is going to take some time in any case, before you listen from the blog owner. However, if you keep the following points in mind, you will be able to form a healthy relationship with the blog owner that will get your posts approved much sooner than the average time, later on.
Tip # 1 – Proofread again and Again:
I don’t know the reason, but it’s quite difficult to weed out all typos and mistakes in just one quick look. And proofreading is not about correcting the grammatical mistakes, reading your post again and again (preferably at different times) will help you identify many parts where you could have used better words or phrases to convey what you were intending to, making those minor changes, changing sentence structures, and other such stuff will take your post to a different level altogether. For starters, I’d recommend going through the posts at least three times with a critic’s frame of mind before dispatching it to the blog owner.
Tip # 2 – Being friendly in your communication:
If you are on friendly terms with the blog owner, there’s much more chance of your post making it through before anybody else, even if other posts are superior in quality as compared to yours (not fair but true). So, you have got to work on your relationship with the blog owners, especially when they’re running more than one blogs, because that will give you access to many different domains. To start with, don’t use one line templates when sending your guest post for the first time, take out time to write customized email, even better, try to participate on their blogs via blog commenting for 2,3 weeks, before pitching your own idea for guest posting.
Tip # 3 – Writing on topics which are “Hot”:
At any given point of time, there are some topics which are in vogue. For example, when new year is approaching, using the new year theme in your blogging or SEO related posts would mean that the bloggers would be keen to put it on their blogs before other more generic articles, similarly, if you are looking to write on a SEO or Internet Marketing blog, you can take on a topic related to some recent developments in the Google’s algorithm.
