Do you want to start guest posting? 

Guest blogging is a great way to get your name out there, establish yourself as an industry expert and build relationships with influencers who will share your content for you. Guest blogging can also help increase traffic to your website as in News Report Online or blog by getting free links from other websites. Guest posts are a win-win situation for both the blogger and the host site!

In this post, we’re going to dive into 9 tips that will help you rock your next guest post submission!

01:  Every word counts! 

Keep in mind that while most blog owners want their blogs to reflect their personality or voice, they also want original content. Guest bloggers can’t complain about not being given enough room on the page when all of them offer different perspectives and ideas. That’s why it’s important to remember that every word counts when submitting an article to someone else’s website or blog. Edit out unnecessary words, sentences and paragraphs before submitting anything at all. It’ll save everyone time by making sure there’s plenty of room for you to share your thoughts and ideas.

02: Give valid reasons 

Guest bloggers are almost always expected to link back to their original content in the form of a blog post or article, as well as provide social media links  preferably Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Remember that it’s not enough just to say “check out my stuff” give people reasons why they should take time out of their day and spend time with what you’ve written! Make sure there is an obvious call-to-action at the end so readers know exactly what action needs to be taken next (subscribing on twitter? checking out your website?)

03: Provide bio about yourself 

Guest posts will often require some sort of bio about yourself before the actual content of your article is posted. Guest bloggers are usually expected to include their website, blog or social media links on these bios and if you have a compelling story tell it! Make sure the bio offers readers some context as to who they’re reading so that there’s no confusion about where this info came from.

04: Avoid fuss while formatting the content

Guest posts should also be formatted in such a way that makes it easy for the host site owner (or blogger) to simply copy-paste into their own template without too much fuss. That means keeping headers at the top of each section, bulleted points when necessary and short paragraphs with plenty of white space between sections.

05: Always research fees before sending 

Guest articles may not always require payment up front, but if they do it’s going to be in the form of a one-time fee. Guest bloggers should always research fees before sending anything over as there is nothing worse than having your article accepted and then realizing you have to pay $250 for that privilege!

06: Editor and feedback

Guest blogs usually require an editor (like us) who will work with you on improving your content through editing or providing constructive feedback so that it can reach its full potential.

07: Open to criticism

Guest posts are not just about telling someone else what their blog needs, remember that guest blogging also presents an opportunity for other people to offer advice/opinions on what you’ve offered. Guest bloggers should always be open to feedback or criticism and if the host site owner has any requests about what they would like changed, listen!

08:  Increase trustworthiness

Guest posts are great ways for guest bloggers to make new connections with other industry influencers who will share their content on social media platforms and improve traffic to your website which is a win-win situation for both parties. Guest blogging can also help increase trustworthiness in an industry as people start viewing you as an authority figure or key player so don’t be afraid to send us something that hasn’t been published yet!

09:  Commitment from all parties

Guest blogs require commitment from all involved parties but it’s worth it, because there are many benefits of guest blogging.
