One of the best ways to get traffic to your website!


Whenever I write about generating traffic or building an email list, I have guest blogging at the top of my list. Even though it’s a great way to drive traffic, there is an art to it. I took Jon Morrows Guest Posting course, and there are a considerable number of steps that’ll you’ll need to take before contacting the owner of the blog.

First, you need to check out the blogs you’ll be pitching to. Even if your niche match is good you still need to read a bunch of posts and to try to find out who the key players are on the blog you’ll be targeting. You will want to try to match the tone and language of the blog that you are targeting as well as the length and number of words.

Next, you’ll need to know how to craft an email that will gain the attention of the owner that you’re trying to pitch to. You need to be brief and to the point. Make sure you have an excellent, professional outline for your pitch.

You will want to make sure that you are following the directions that the blog owner has laid down for guest posting. You need to follow them to the letter.

Finally, if you get a chance to write for a well-known blog , do all of your research on the front end and find out what is keeping the readers of the blog up at night. You can use research tools like Buzzsumo to check out what the highest read and shared posts were.

Finally, if you need a quick list of the different sites that accept guest posts are you can check these out:

Guest Post Tracker – This is a site that has a list of 928 blogs that allow guest posts. This site also provides a service that helps you track and approach those blogs.

Peter Sandeen’s Site – Peter Sandeen is an online marketing guru, and he’s compiled a list of 140 sites that he thinks are pretty sweet for guest bloggers.

The Shout Me Loud Blog – This resource has about 40 blogs that are about blogging and accept guest bloggers. This is a great site for those of you that are bloggers and like writing about it.

The Web Marketing Saga Blog – This blog states, “Get the Most Out Of Your Blog” and it certainly tries to live up to its theme.

Easy M6 – This site has an ultimate list to guest blogging, but I would probably say that there are a lot of sites that say they have an “ultimate guide”.

I hope this post finds you well and I wish you and your awesome blog a Happy New Year!

Elmo

Is Content Dead or are You Just Missing Something That’s Promising?

Are you told that it’s not and that you just need to be patient and one day it will all turn around?

If you look at the vast and overwhelming amount of content being created you would have to say it’s not. In fact, it’s thriving!

But that may just be the problem.

Is content dead? Discover if your content marketing efforts are in vain or if you need to re-examine your expectations and results.

Content curation is all about becoming a trusted editorial source that finds the best information within a certain topic from amongst the valueless clickbait and mediocre dross that overruns the web. 
On Unemployable, Brian Clark talks with NextDraft's Dave Pell about why smart content curation is a valuable service and how it benefits your business.

Never consider marketing as only an expense. Marketing is an investment and if done right will grow your business. Anything that can grow your business should be considered an investment.

77 Experts Share Their Best Blog Tips
http://www.bloggingtips.com/2016/10/06/how-to-start-a-blog/


Starting a blog is easy, but starting a successful and profitable blog is definitely not. Thanks to the power of WordPress, anyone can register a domain name, set up hosting and then go live with a blog of their own within minutes… however, like the saying goes, “if it was easy, everyone would do it!” — well, that is the case! Everyone is blogging and it’s dead simple easy.

So where does that leave us?

Simple… we are flooded with more than 300 million WordPress driven-blogs on the internet, and it leaves a ton of people wondering why they aren’t seeing success and riches! Is this a bad thing? Absolutely not, it just means you need to find what is working and what isn’t, then come up with an effective plan for success.

If you aren’t finding success with a blog of your own, it’s likely because you haven’t mastered the art of zoning in on your niche audience and creating the type of content they are looking for. Gone are the days of simply “creating content” and ranking in the search results. Now it’s more about “content promotion” more than “content creation”.

With all of that being said, I reached out to some of the greatest minds in the world of blogging and content creation, to ask what their best advice and tips were for finding success with blogging. You can read through the massive list of expert answers below, then start implementing these same practices into your own blog!

I recently examined some articles that went viral on popular sites and there are some good takeaways on how we can create similar content on our own sites. Here are a few lessons:

1. Visual content is still underutilized - Even well known content marketers aren't fully utilizing visual content to its maximum potential. Although it is more costly and time consuming to create, some articles have exceeded 10,000 social shares just from having a good visual attached to it.

2. LinkedIn can be a good channel for content promotion - LinkedIn is often overlooked as a content promotion channel, but some people do share articles on LinkedIn. Social sharing data indicates that it might be worth looking into.

3. Expert roundups work well - A lot of digital marketers don't like expert roundups, but the data shows that they can work really well if done properly. Some of the most shared posts on Social Media Examiner for example are expert roundups exceed over 10k social shares.

Studying top content marketers is a good way to see what works and what doesn't. This article reveals 5 marketing lessons from articles that went viral.

Thanks, Chris! I agree, LinkedIn is good for B2B content mostly from what I've seen.
