How Guest Post Submission On This Site Can Help You
Guest Posting, also known as Guest Blogging is an act of writing content for someone else’s website. At first, it may sound ridiculous; why would someone waste their precious time writing content for someone else? Well, Usually Guest Bloggers Write Content for Similar Blogs to gain the following benefits:
- Build a relationship with people of the same interest in the community
- Capture a wider audience by redirecting traffic back to their Websites
- Increase their brand credibility to get more business opportunities
- Boost their domain authority with the help of backlink from high-authority domains
Like always, Guest Posting offers mutual benefits, both for the writer and the website publishing the guest post. Now let’s cut this part and take an in-depth look at how guest blogging can help you but first take a look at our website and social media stats. UpGrading has over XX Page Views per month, and our article reaches thousands of visitors each week. We also have thousands of followers on our social media platforms.
(Attach Website Stats) Ahrefs or Moz.
Submitting a guest post on a high-authority blog that is already getting massive amounts of traffic is a great idea to start a healthy relationship, not only with the blog owner but also with the readers. Although guest blogging helps you to build a relationship, it takes time. You should be consistent with what you are doing, keep interacting with others through comments and social media platforms.
Bring targeted Users back to your Site
When you submit a guest post, upon approval, you get backlinks and an author profile, linking back to your website. If a reader likes your content, then he will eventually follow back to your Site using the backlink or follow you on social media to see more from you. In this way, you get high quality targeted users, and you can smartly convert them into your customers.
We had personally tried this when our website was growing. A well-written quality guest post on a high-authority blog will help you to promote yourself in many ways. Suppose your guest post gets around 40,000 views, and 0.5% (200) of them follow you on your social media platform. This number is still huge because they are a targeted audience. Some of them might become your Client/Customer and benefit you in the long run.
Linking posts with each other is an essential factor in ranking your blog. A Backlink from a High-Authority website can help you to list your blog post higher on the Google Search Result Page. It will also help you to build your Domain Authority and thus profit your blog in the long run.
