Guest blogging is a great way to spread your knowledge and expertise without having to building anything. Instead, you can tap into someone else’s audience, taking advantage of the work and effort they’ve put into building their online presences and followings.
Getting those guest-blogging gigs, however, takes a bit of research and finesse. You don’t have to spend time building your own audience, but you should spend some time finding the right site for your post.
Think of it like going out to dinner: you can’t just walk in to any restaurant and expect to eat Chinese food; you need to go to a Chinese restaurant.
The same is true for blogging. Each blog has a specific message and audience; your writing won’t be appropriate for every blog. It’s understandable to think that contacting more bloggers will yield more blogging opportunities but that’s not how it works. When you send generic pitches to multiple bloggers, they can tell!
Laura Christianson knows what it’s like to receive bad blog pitches. Owner of Blogging Bistro, it’s sort of her area of expertise. Before you pitch a blog post with an email that starts with Dear Admin, Hello, or Dear Blog Master, read her article and increase your chances of securing that guest post spot!
