Writing a Guest Post: 3 Blogging Tips

  1. Research

Spend some time on the website you’ll be guest posting on. Most blogs frequently write about the same topic(s), so make sure the article you’re writing is a good fit for the audience. Try to see if there are some great posts that have gotten a lot of reader engagement or social shares or attempt to tailor your post to be similar to the most popular posts and offer the reader a fresh, new take on the subject.

  1. Offer Value to Your Readers

Chances are, the reason you’re writing a guest post is for your expertise. If you are an expert in your field, help people understand your ideas by breaking them down into helpful how-to articles. How-to articles are commonly clicked on, and users like reading these snippets of information. Simple articles that help the user or teach them something are likely to get read and shared, drawing more traffic to your site.

  1. Write a Great Post

When you’ve chosen the topic for your guest post, it’s time to write it! Remember blogging tips like optimizing the post for readers and for search engines. Choose SEO friendly keywords and make sure your post isn’t too long or too short. Readers like to see bullet-ed lists and images, and they’re also great for SEO, so make sure your post includes some of those.

Finding guest blogging opportunities can drive traffic to your site and increase your online visibility. For more blogging tips, as well as help with social media and content marketing, check out the other articles on the Three Girls Media blog.
