Do you want to be featured on Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, Inc. Magazine?
That’s all possible through guest blogging.
Today, I’m going to go over if you should leverage guest blogging.
The first thing you need to know is guest blogging is better for B2B than it is for B2C.
If you’re in a B2C niche, you probably shouldn’t waste your time with guest blogging.
For B2B, it’s amazing, it’s great, it works extremely well.
Here’s the next thing you need to consider.
If you can blog at least two to three times a week, you should ideally do that on your
own blog, because you can grow your traffic base.
After a year, it will continually grow and grow.
What will happen is, you control that audience.
It’s much easier to convert them into a customer when it’s on your own blog versus someone
But if you don’t have the time to blog two to three times a week, then you should consider guest blogging.
Reason being is it’s hard to build up a really large audience unless you’re consistently blogging two to three times a week.
If you only have time to do one post a week, you shouldn’t do it on your own blog.
Heck, you shouldn’t even create a blog.
You should put your content on someone else’s blog.
Hence, guest posting.
Now that you know if you want to guest post or not, here’s how you get featured on Entrepreneur, Inc., Huffington Post and sites like that.
If you’re going to email the editor, you’re not going to get a response.
They won’t care.
Everyone emails them up.
On a daily basis, they’re probably getting dozens and dozens of requests of people saying, “Hey, can I contribute to Huffington Post? What do they naturally do?”
They’re going to say no, or they’re going to ignore it.
But on the flip side, if you network with other guest contributors, such as me, I already blog on all these sites, you go find my articles, you read them, you can go find my email address all over the web and you can for most of these contributors, and you start emailing feedback.

Like, “Hey, Neil, I noticed you wrote this article on Entrepreneur Magazine.
Have you thought about covering A, B, and C that you didn’t cover in your article?” The chances are I’m going to respond to that email and be like, “Oh, thank you for the feedback, that’s a good point.”
If you put thought into it and you’re not just writing garbage to these guest contributors, they usually will respond. You can typically message them through that website. For example on Forbes, you can contact the author through Forbes’ own internal messaging system.
It’s really simple.
As you build a connection and you continually help that author out, eventually, you can say, “Hey, Neil, I love what you’re doing on Forbes and I want to be like you one of these days.
Would you mind if you can do an introduction to an editor? If not, no worries.
Cheers, your number one fan, John Doe.”
By sending out emails like that, you’re going to start getting introduced to an editor.
When an editor gets introduced to you from another writer, they’re much more likely to respond and allow you to post on that website, and that’s how you get guest contribute our accounts.
