Have you been finding it challenging to write a compelling guest blog pitch that gets accepted by top bloggers?

How do you write an engaging guest blog pitch that gets accepted?

How do you craft a pitch that busy bloggers attend and respond to? If your guest post pitch stinks, it won’t get noticed—it’ll end up in the bin.

If one of your plans this year is to get published on top blogs like: Dailyseotip, Search Engine Journal, Business2community, then I’m going to quickly reveal to you some secret tips that I’ve used to get featured on these high ranked blogs, and how you can craft my strategy to your taste, and also get published on tons of big blogs online!

Let’s get started!

Become a pest

Nah! I don’t mean the normal pest, I mean a ‘’social media pest’’.

Before you send your guest blog pitch, you should do some research and learn about the guys behind the blogs you want to pitch.

Spend time reading their content, commenting on their posts, following and interacting with them on Twitter, gossiping with them on Facebook (just kidding), and pinning their images on Pinterest.

These are the first steps to get on their screens and build a relationship with them.  Once you’re done with this, then you’ll have to….. (Which brings me to the next tip)..

Introduce Yourself

Once you’ve developed a relationship, then you can start with a personal message to introduce yourself. Tell them what you like about their blog and how you’ve been tremendously impacted. Be honest. Don’t just frame up a story.

If you frame your message, they’ll sense it, and might just delete your email.

Honestly tell them what you like about their blog. If you plan to attend a conference where the blogger will be, invite him for a drink or dinner.

Your goal is to depen the relationship and a long time business partnership. John Chow and Jeremy are two guys that are very good at this!

Craft an Engaging Email Subject Line

Write a descriptive, promising, interesting, engaging, compelling, and eye pulling email subject line. If you’re not good at crafting email subject lines then Google: “Jimmy D Brown”. He’s an expert at writing attractive email subject lines. Study his works, and you’ll never be the same again!

Pro tip: Never trick a blogger into opening your email by promising something you won’t deliver. If you do this, your message might up end in the bin. And I’m sure you don’t want that!

Be Personal

If you’ve implemented the above tips, you should know the bloggers name.

Don’t address him by, ‘’Hi, hey’’. That’s manner less… Include his name and show him some respect (he deserves it). After all, he doesn’t need any help from you. You need him to publish your post, not him! Get that into your thick headed skull. (Sorry, just kidding).

Add ‘Fluff’’ Add useful information

Include your published samples; also, don’t forget to add a link to your bio, Twitter handle, Facebook and other social media links. The goal is to have the blogger make a quick research about you and to also establish a foundation of trust.
