Instead of sharing one particular topic, you can pitch different ideas and suggest which one will be better to post.

  • Remember that this post should have information but not an advertisement or any sort of branding
  • Always format and edit your post just like they are on the blog or website
  • You should always add proper keywords, and links where required

How to write the best introduction for yourself

When the audience will read your guest post on that particular website, they will want to know more about you, like who you are and maybe even want to contact you. Here is when your bio becomes handy. Only in this area you can promote yourself well by adding links to your website, your email, social media handles and other services. If you focus on getting more traffic, then your bio needs to have a backlink to your website. If you want to promote yourself more on social media, then leave all handles in the bio so that people can look you up. Similarly, if you want to have traffic to any particular item or service, you should link that. 

How to know if you did well

Depending upon your goals, you can measure your results to see how well you performed. If you just wanted more traffic that is easily measured by seeing the number of times your website is viewed. You can track conversions by using Google Analytics tool. So, if you wanted more people to follow you on social media, you can see the rise in your accounts and assess if people have been following you or not. Similarly, if you wanted to brand a particular product the traffic on the landing page will determine the success rate. 

Do not forget one thing – blogging is not just about guest posting. It is an added incentive to gather some extra traffic and coverage. If you do not focus on your own blog first, you can never become a good guest blogger. Wherever you post, readers will be redirected to your own page. So, focus on your own content and blog first. Do not forget to effectively promote your own blog and all the guest posts that you do, so that it reaches to maximum people.
