How to be a guest blogger for Be A Better Blogger
You’re looking to have a guest post published on an up-and-coming blog that’s read by several influential folks. And I’m looking for great blog content to complement my own.
Sounds like a mutually-beneficial match made in Heaven. 🙂
Before we go over my writing guidelines, I wanted to share with you a few reasons why writing for Be A Better Blogger (and enduring my high expectations) is so, so worth it…
#1. I shine the spotlight on my guest bloggers
There’s nothing standing between the end of your post and your author bio. No opt-in forms, no sharing icons, no advertisements. Readers go from the last sentence of your guest post directly to your bio. In addition, a condensed version of your bio displays at the top of the sidebar on non-mobile devices.
I know what it feels like to pour your heart and soul into a guest post. I want people to know you wrote it, and I want them to be able to easily find your website, landing page, and social media profiles.
I want you to get the most out of this opportunity. That’s also why…
#2. I promote guest posts as if they were my own
As soon as your guest post is published, I will email it to my subscribers. A few days later, I’ll email it again to those who didn’t open the first one.
I’ll promote your post on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. I’ll share it inside my private groups and communities.
And to ensure you can do the same…
#3. I coordinate with you
On some blogs, guest bloggers have no say as to when their post is published. Oftentimes, guest bloggers are taken by surprise. They’ll get back from a dentist appointment or hot dog eating contest only to discover their guest post had been abruptly published hours earlier without their knowledge.
That won’t happen at Be A Better Blogger.
Once your post has made it through editing, you and I will go over available publication dates. I want your guest post to have its best possible chance to succeed. And to do that, we need to choose a date that makes sense for each of us.
#4. I know people
I’m very fortunate to have numerous influential readers. If you write a great guest post for my site, they’re likely to notice. And if you write a really great guest post, I’ll go out of my way to make sure they notice.
