Why you should start guest blogging

By this stage of blogging I imagine if you are reading this you have had a good go at blogging your own thoughts, ideas and content, you find it a great way of relaxing in a productive way, advancing your own skills whilst being able to help others. You may have even noticed traffic to your website increase ten fold as an added bonus to this new hobby you have found. It is a great start to gain traffic and awareness of what you do but there is another way to increase your traffic levels one step further and that is through guest blogging.

What is Guest blogging

Guest blogging is where someone who doesn’t own the website, blog or social media account create a blog post that the editor of the website is happy to share with its audience.

Usually a blog post by a guest will be related to theme of the website so that the audience will be interested in what is being written otherwise a blog post about knitting won’t go down too well on a blog about gardening ( unless the target market are a group of pensioners maybe).

Why website owners love guest blogs?

Its not secret, the best way to generate traffic to your website is to create content and a lot of it! By guest blogging for another person or business it gives them the ability to generate more content. Great for website owners as it has the potential to generate new leads and potential to also gain more revenue.

Whats in it for me?

So far it sounds like the website owner is the big fat banker and we are the lowly peasent but it isn’t so! By guest blogging on another website that is relevant to your industry you are promoting your work to an audience who may not have seen what you do before thus arriving at your website through someone elses, maybe even a competing business. If the reader is impressed enough ( or if you ask nicely ) the new reader may also become a social media fan of yours and follow you on one of the many social media platforms.

Still not sure if guest blogging is for you?

Well here are seven points why guest blogging will help you and your own website improve conversions.

1. SE0
2. More Brand Awareness
3. Showing yourself as an expert in the industry
4. Increase your reputation and be respected
5. The website owner respects your opinion
6. Increase your website traffic
7. Increase your fan base on your website & social media

Blog topic inspiration

Finding Blog topic inspiration can be tricky. Sometimes you may have noticed my blog posts start drying up…I go three to five days without posting anything new and it sometimes is due to a lack of creative writing inspiration but how do we get back into the flow of things when this happens? How do we get our creative cogs turning again? In this post I give five suggestions on how you can get inspiration and start writing regularly and freely.

Trending topics

Sometimes what others are saying about a particular topic in your industry can be useful to spark your creativity. I have written about how to find out what is trending on the major social media platforms before here but there are other ways too!

Twitter trends

For instance on Twitter you can #Discover things you are interested in. Okay so, for an example, I would probably search for something like #art or #graphics or #brand. This will bring back hashtags with those phrases on and give you inspiration to see what others are talking about in your particualr field of interest.

Instagram trends

Or on Instagram you can search for tags in your field of interest. It is a lot similar to the Twitter discover tool but obviously these are images relating to the hash tag. This isn’t a bad thing, why not take inspiration from an image and write about it or maybe do a review of another artist or someone else’s photography. Maybe an image will spark a piece of creativity within your own soul.

Tumblr trends

Tumblr offers the same ability to search for hash tags so there are oodles of ways for your to find some inspiration from others.

Questions, questions, questions

Have people asked you questions about your work or industry lately? This is a great area of inspiration, every time someone asks you a question don’t just answer it but write it down too! You would be surprised just how many people in the world probably have the same question.

Get your work colleagues to help

Are you a business man or woman reading this blog? How many employees do you have? For each colleague you could have a potential new blog post in each and every person! So if you have 40 employees and each creates just one post a week that is 40 pieces of new content A WEEK!! A huge advantage over a lot of your competition.

If your creativity is a bit low as sometimes happens call a friend and ask them for a little hand, we are all creative and all have things to say about the industry we work in.

Old Works

Another option is to consider old works such as case studies ( if you provide a service ) or artworks you have created ( like myself ) and explain the concepts you had behind them. You can even discuss what you learnt from the experience too, that might help you to readdress where your strengths and weaknesses are which is always a great thing to do.

Guest Blogging

If you are totally dry and still struggling to blog about something interesting then you could open up your blog to others in your industry. This will help to keep your readers interested in coming to your website but also allow others to gain promotion from your website. You may think this is crazy to allow people to post on your blog but the truth is that the internet has made it easy for people to shop around a lot easier for what their specific needs are so don’t get defensive at the thought of advertising or helping a fellow person in your industry, actually helping others is great for business!

By helping promote another you are building a relationship with the person who has blogged on your website which may result in internet karma and potential leads when that person can’t complete a job for whatever reason.

Once you have some inspiration spend just ten to twenty minutes of your time writing down around 10 to 20 topics you can write about in the near future then, when it comes to writing you can choose from one of your titles you came up with at the start of the week.
