How to Land Guest Blogging Opportunities in Under an Hour.

Guest blogging is a great way to get more out of the articles and content you produce on the regular.

It’s a marketing strategy that could be of great help.

when it comes to promoting your content or simply an effective strategy to grow your blog fast.

It’s about contacting a blog different than yours and getting them to publish content that you’ve created.

Of course, this other blog would be relevant to yours and have a similar audience.

To exemplify, if you write about web design, you would contact a blog that operates in the same field.

One of the greatest benefits of guest blogging is that you are getting your content exposed to a new audience.

This could bring traffic to your own` blog because people may want to read more of your work.

It’s also a win-win situation for the blog that shares your article.

But how exactly do you go about landing a guest blogging opportunity?

In this step-by-step guide, I’ll show you how the outreach ninjas at DragDropr find and land guest blogging opportunities in less than an hour.

Step #1: Find Guest Post Opportunities

Guest Post Guidelines

One of the first things that you need to do is to find relevant blogs that would be interested in publishing your content.

Given the example from earlier, if you’re into web design you should look for blogs that are in the same field.

This will ensure that your content would be fitting to the blogs and audience in question.

As always, the best place to start searching is Google.

The magic happens when you actually use a specific search string to identify all the guest blogging opportunities in your industry.

Our team uses the following list of search strings in Google:

So, if your primary focus is to find guest blogging opportunities in the web design industry, you would need to search with one of the following search strings listed above in Google:

Ex: Web design ”write for us”.

 Example #1: How to use search strings in Google

Once you make your search with this keyword in Google, you’ll notice that all of your search results will consist of blogs and media outlets that are transparently welcoming inspiring guest authors.

From our guest blogging experience, most of the blogs and media outlets that accept guest authors have landing pages called ”Write for us”.

Thus, the search string that we used in the example above is the most effective one for generating the highest number of guest blogging opportunities.

Step #2: Find the Right Contact Information

The key to a highly successful outreach campaign is finding the right contact information.

Nowadays, instead of going through your prospects one by one, you can use tools like Ninja Outreach to help you automatically collect the necessary contact information.

Once you generate the initial set of search results in Google, use the Ninja Outreach browser extension to collect all the prospects in one list and the app will automatically find the primary contact information such as full name of the website owner, email address, contact form, social media channels, the number of followers for each channel and the key SEO metrics. There is no waiting time so the extension will generate the contact information within a few seconds.

Once you generate your first search results, just right click with your mouse on an empty space and click ‘Load Links on Ninja Outreach’. Alternatively, you can collect the prospects manually with the same method by clicking on each URL one by one.

Example #2: How to load prospects in Ninja Outreach

After that, choose your newly created list for guest blogging purpose in Ninja Outreach and save all the results in it.

You can keep saving the results on every next page on Google until you run out of ”Write for us” search results.

If you feel like you don’t have enough prospects for your guest blogging campaign, feel free to use the next search string from the list above and save the new set of prospects in the same list in Ninja Outreach.

Example #3: How to save prospects in Ninja Outreach

Later, you can easily filter your prospects in the app and only contact only the ones that fulfill your guest posting requirements.

Example #4: How to filter results in Ninja Outreach

In case you don’t have a Ninja Outreach account, you can always create a Google spreadsheet and populate the contact information of your prospects manually. Our team usually populates the following categories to help us easily navigate through the prospects in the spreadsheet:

– Website URL– Full Name (Owner or Editor)– Email Address– Contact Form (In case there is no email address available)– Facebook Followers– Twitter Followers– Domain Authority– Alexa Rank

Example #5: Managing guest blogging prospects in a Google spreadsheet

Step #3: Send Your Pitch

The second key element to a highly successful outreach campaign is creating a personalized pitch.

Now imagine that you’re an owner of a highly successful blog or media outlet and receive dozens of guest blogging pitches every day.

I’m sure you’ll easily grow tired of reading generic pitches that most likely ended up in your inbox just to steal a backlink.

Instead of sending an uninspiring pitch, invest a significant amount of effort when creating your guest blogging pitches so that the prospect on the receiving end would feel like you’re providing value to their loyal audience.

Check their latest articles or social media posts and make sure you get to know your prospects before sending a guest blogging pitch.

Usually, sharing their content or regularly commenting on their latest articles would grant you safe passage in their inbox.

Here’s an example of our battle-tested email template: Guest Blogging

”Hi [First Name],

My name is [Your Name] and I work on growth at [Company/Website].

I just wanted to let you know that I stumbled upon your blog recently and I’m thoroughly enjoying your latest content. You may have noticed my comment on your post on [Article Title]. Btw, I loved your tips on [Main Article Subject].

I’m writing to you because I’d love to contribute a guest post on your blog and share my actionable tips with your audience. I’ve been brainstorming some topics that I think your readers would get a ton of value from:

[Topic #1]

[Topic #2]

[Topic #3]

Worry not, I already got familiarized with your guest posting guidelines so I’ll make sure that my article provides original tips that can’t be found anywhere else.

To give you an idea of my writing style and the quality of my articles, here’s a link to a guest post that I published recently on [Article Link on Other Website].

Kind Regards,

[Your First Name]”

Our team uses outreach app such as Ninja Outreach that helps us personalize the outreach campaigns for each set of prospects. Alternatively, you can always use traditional email providers such as Gmail.

Pick & Choose Who to Contact In Guest Blogging

We have now covered one of the fastest ways when it comes to finding blogs that you could contact. However, let’s get into a bit more detail in regards to picking the right blogs for you.

When YouTube was becoming big, not many YouTubers had tons of subscribers. Therefore, people who were just starting out were collaborating with YouTubers that had a similar number of subscribers.

You could use the same approach with guest blogging as well. We mentioned earlier that you should look for blogs that at least have a decent following. But hey, less popular blogs could definitely be considered good enough. The reason being is that these blogs could be way more open to accepting guest blogs and therefore consider you. Plus what’s most important is if their content is high quality.

Make Yourself a Great Prospect Guest Blogging

If you get to be considered by another blog to share your content, you will need to have a unique idea prepared. This doesn’t have to be anything too special, but you should definitely do your homework beforehand. Make sure you give their blog a good look and take notice of their most popular content. This should serve as a guideline when picking the topic that you suggest to them.

In general, you should make the other blog’s job easy on them. If you make a straightforward offer that is precise and informative, they’re more likely to make a decision and accept it.  Our way of going about it so to suggest 2-3 potential topics that had been successful on that blog. We also try to show appreciation, compliment them, keep it short and to the point, and mention a previous work.

Final Words

Benefits of Guest Blogging

In conclusion, by following these simple guidelines we simplify the process of landing a guest blogging opportunity. And not only does this make it simple but very quick as well. What’s also great is that the process is easily replicable. You start with a simple Google and Social Media search by using keywords related to guest posting and preceding them with the term for your industry.

Next, you pick the best blogs by considering their level of popularity. You take a good look at their most successful content and you put together a few similar topics. Then, you contact the blogs in a clear and straightforward way that makes it easier for them to decide. If your approach is precise and you point out to your quality content, they’re more likely to accept the offer and publish your work.

How Can I Get More Traffic To My Blog Using Quora?

 

How Can I Get More Traffic To My Blog Using Quora_

 

I Get the question How can I get more traffic to my site using Quora? “

Well, today in this blog post I will let you know a secret.

You can absolutely get traffic to your blog or website with the website Quora

Some of you may ask what is Quora?

Quora is social networking as well as question and answer site.

Where questions & queries are asked, answered, edited and organized by the community of users known as Quorans. 

Here, the users can collaborate by editing and merging the question by editing and suggesting an edit to other relevant users.

Users can open an account by using their Google or Facebook ID.

Likewise,

They can create an account on Quora by registering their Email ID and filling in the necessary details.

Quora allows it’s users to

  • ask questions,
  • merge questions,
  • follow a question,
  • answer a question,
  • request to answer a question,
  • suggest edits,
  • upvote,
  • downvote,
  • thank,
  • comment,
  • share,
  • and bookmark.

All the above are great for your blog…

How Can I Get More Traffic To My Blog Using Quora_ (1)

The website also allows the users to go anonymous while asking a question or answering a question  (my personal favorite part). It’s a very interesting site…believe me…

In other words, I love it…

Therefore if you have a blog, website, affiliate link, etc. that can answer the question that is sent to you then that will send traffic to were you need it to be.

In conclusion,

It’s really simple to use Quora…

Just sign up, connect twitter if you like and add the topic that you have knowledge in or that leads back to your blog or product.

I started using Quora to draw traffic to my blog and it works great, I also use it to get leads for your products like E-books, or Courses you have.

Like I said before Quora is the truth, I think I like it more than Pinterest.

Well maybe not, but I hold this site to the same light I do Pinterest because they get the job done.
