Guest Posts!? I hardly have time to write for my own blog, we hear you cry!
But before you dismiss this idea, let us tell you, guest blogging has some serious advantages!
Don’t be fooled into thinking that writing guest posts is simply a way to increase website traffic temporarily or just a strategy to get loads of backlinks!
Guest posting has many other benefits and here are our Top 3!
Top 3 Guest Posting Benefits
1. Build online presence: If you’re an expert at a subject then the best way to spread your expertise is by guest posting on popular blogs. When several posts written by you on the same subject appear on top blogs people will get to know that you’re an expert on that subject and they will want to work with you. It will also make it easy for people to find out more about you, as you will turn up in search engine results when they search for information on that subject.
2. Build online relationships: After you write a guest post for someone, your relationship with this person doesn’t just end there – it’s actually the beginning. When you write a post for someone you start a relationship with them. This could lead to a lot of help from this person in the future – this could be in promoting you, sharing your content, etc. I have written a lot of guest posts on several blogs and this has helped me build many relationships which have led to better opportunities.
3. Use as samples: If you’re a writer the best way to get better writing opportunities is to have samples of posts you have written for the top blogs. If you have several posts you have written published on top blogs it can help you land high paying writing opportunities as you will be able to demonstrate that you have written at the highest level.
So these are our top 3 benefits. We suggest if you haven’t already started writing guest posts, start writing them TODAY!
