We all know the benefits of guest posting:
- Additional Exposure
- Targeted Website Traffic
- Something to add to the “featured on” section of your site
But there’s another factor that needs to be considered as well….
Guest posting is hard
You gotta find opportunities, get pitches accepted, produce the content, get it approved by the host…etc.
Well, good news. The process for guest posts on Do You Even Blog is simple.
Here is exactly what to do:
Email pete @ doyouevenblog . com with the following:
- 3-5 topic ideas
- 3-5 headlines per idea
- 1-2 sentence overview for each idea
Absolutely no more.
You do not need to write a full post. You do not need to write a super long email w/ formalities. Just pitch me the ideas.
Here is what to expect:
- I’ll reply to your email and let you know what I think
- We’ll pick an idea, you’ll write a draft!
- We’ll probably go back and forth at least 3 times, perfecting your content.
If you’re not willing to get feedback on your content, don’t bother submitting a pitch (and if this is the case, you might not be cut out for this line of work anyways).
Here are some tips to make sure your pitches are accepted:
Nothing is more important to me than content. Keep that in mind.
1 – Your content ideas should cater exactly to my avatar!
Here’s my audience: Bloggers and online entrepreneurs who haven’t “made it,” yet…but who are driven to try new things, learn, and hustle their way to a full-time blog business. They want to suplement their existing income, or replace a full-time job income…all through their blogs. They understand the need for good content. They understand they need to hustle to get a following, and they understand the need to be persistent.
What they need: tactical, proven, concrete, actionable advice, tutorials, and guides. They need a crisp and clear example of what to do in their own blog.
2 – You need to have done something
If you don’t have actually results for something you’re trying to teach, forget about it. You need real life examples and proof.
3 – Has it been written about on the blog before?
Do some digging, and aim for something new and underutilized.
4 – Spend time on the headlines!
Headlines make or break click-throughs….and pitches.
Do some homework and brainstorming. They don’t have to be perfect for the pitches, but the better they are, the more likely you’ll end up with a stellar guest post.
5 – Be patient.
Don’t send me follow-up emails. I will respond 😉 I love you!
Ready to pitch me?
I’ll send massive traffic and love your way in exchange for quality content.
