If you’re in the online marketing industry, you’re probably aware of how beneficial guest posting can be. Guest posting provides the opportunity to send quality traffic to and from your site, depending on which end of the relationship you or your company are on. Quality traffic, however, is not the only benefit of this marketing tactic.
Growth & Influence
Guest blogging for others facilitates the growth of your own blog by building your authority online. You’ll receive quality backlinks, which build up your domain in search engines. Guest blogging also affords you the opportunity to create relationships with power bloggers in your niche. Having your name associated with influential blogs in your area of expertise is beneficial to your reputation and online influence.
Establish Trust with Audience
Guest blogging shows your audience that you can be trusted. Most companies and blogs only accept original, quality content; by showing readers that you’re willing to create this type of content to benefit someone other than yourself, you’re instilling the type of trust in people that all companies covet.
Be a Better Version of Yourself
No matter your vertical or niche, your ultimate goal should be to be the best. By participating in guest blogging, you’re constantly required to improve your writing; whether it’s organization and sentence structure, grammar or overall tone. Effective communication is key – no matter the subject – and the only way to effectively communicate is through practice. Not only will guest blogging aid this by requiring continuously fresh content, but you’ll receive feedback by a number of different people, which will allow you to really hone your style to fit your brand’s image.
Guest posting gets your name out to hundreds – potentially thousands – of people who would never have been exposed to you without the help of another company, brand or author. Exposure is the key to brand awareness. The more people become comfortable and familiar with your brand, the more likely they will be to take you up on the product or service that you’re offering. Exposure is also a way to build your subscriber following, which serves as a database for lead generation efforts.
Self-awareness, however, is just as important – if not more important – than brand awareness. By guest posting on respected blogs, you’re opening yourself up to feedback from readers of all backgrounds. By paying attention to, and responding to comments, you’re gaining insight on your own image from other people’s perspectives.
