Are you pounding away at the keys every day writing and submitting articles to article directories, then wondering where all the traffic is? In today’s world of social media, you must raise the bar, put in the time and effort and get yourself out there.
Competition is fierce!
What will you do to stand out in the crowd? Yes, article marketing had its day and while it’s still a way to get traffic, guest blogging is a proven way to:

Intelligent marketers are now finding more effective, proven ways to syndicate their content and one of the most popular ways of doing that is guest blogging.
If you’re building back links – use tried and true methods that work!
Guest blogging will:

I have had 2 of my posts submitted on Problogger.net and I received a great number of backlinks, visits to my blog, Likes, Tweets and many informative comments as a result.
It doesn’t stop there, traffic is just one of the benefits of guest blogging. It gives you tremendous visibility in your market – i.e. lots of exposure.
Importantly, when your post gets published on high profile authority blogs, you are now sharing in the popularity and authority of those blogs – and that puts you on a whole new playing level!

How to Get a Guest Blogging Spot…
One of the best ways to get a guest blogging spot is to get to know the blogger first.
Remember, success takes work and effort but getting to know a high profile blogger isn’t all that difficult.
Now, at first this might sound hard but it’s really not. Most people are simply going about it the wrong way. Making money online with your blog is about building relationships and trust – and providing massive amount of VALUE!
Here’s how to do it….
When people trust you, they feel comfortable with you and what you have to offer them. Make informative, insightful comments on their blog – make yourself memorable. Then, send the blogger an email and tell them that you enjoy their blog, how much value you’ve gotten from it and what it has done to help you in your online business.
Also, why not get to know them on a much deeper level?
Take a look at their Twitter or Facebook page and find out more about them. What are their hobbies and pastimes? Their favorite music? Their favorite books? Movies? Remember, building a relationship with a high profile blogger can pay off in dividends when you’re trying to building back links, so get to know them, and social media is a powerful way to do that.
Now it’s time to compose a personalized email.
High profile bloggers love to receive emails from their readers and receive positive feedback about their blog. At this point, the blogger is already familiar with you because you’ve left sincere, value-packed and informative comments on their blog. Now that you’ve laid the foundation, you can approach them about submitting a guest post on their blog and chances are very good that they’ll be happy to oblige (but make sure it’s an original post that’s not published elsewhere and that it’s loaded with value!).
Taking the time to get to know the owners of authority blogs helps you to set the foundation for a working relationship with them. You write informative posts for their blog, and they reap the rewards in the search engines. They now know you and trust you and will be happy to have you as a guest on their blog.
When guest blogging, it’s not about you. It’s about providing all-star content to the blog’s readers, which in turn will give you valuable back links to your own blog. It’s a win-win. It’s all about forming connections that will present more opportunities for you in the future. Provide value for others first and foremost. Launch your sailboat laden with powerful and helpful information and the current will return it to you laden with gold.
Build a relationship first is key, and provide awesome value. Give em’ your best stuff.
Writing a guest post that will get published:
Your title is the attention-grabber! If you don’t write an engaging title, your article will simply fade and won’t get read. Create an attention-getting title and dress up your article with catchy headings, images and detailed bullet points. Avoid long paragraphs that look like thesis papers and instead use those bullet points to create informative lists.
Take your time here!
Write just for them, make it memorable and you will increase the opportunity to write for them again. When your content is first-class original content, chances are you can send more articles to them in the future without having to approach them about writing a guest post for them. Set that ever-so-important foundation!
Include relevant images that will enhance your article and help illustrate your article’s information. People love pictures and they will help you get your guest post accepted too.
Make sure you include a link to related posts from the same blog. Within your own blog post, insert links that relate to articles from the blog you’re guest posting on. By doing this, you are providing even more value to the blog owner’s readers.
Always respond to comments!
Once your guest post is submitted and published, it doesn’t stop there. You will receive comments to your guest post – respond to all of them. Remember, blogging is a social platform and by responding thoughtfully to each and every comment, you will be showing them that you are genuine and want to provide value.
Every person who comments is a potential new visitor, reader and fan of your blog. Engage with them, answer their questions, give them value and information that will help them. Your efforts will pay off!
It’s all about building relationships and connections – and ultimately building back links.
Guest blogging is a POWERFUL way to get free online advertising for your blog. It’s a way to establish yourself as an expert, increase your online presence, build your brand, and building back links!
