I had already mentioned that guest posts are one of the best sources of backlinks. Writing a perfect guest post doesn’t need any skill,but all you need is a proper brain and you need to go on your styles, let us start exploring some ways to make your guest posts perfect.
1.Follow Your Style-
If someone has let your post in their blog,it means that they like your style,so stick to your style. Never try to change your style of writing,for example if you normally use sarcasm in your posts,then use it forever,never change it.All i can say is “Try to be yourself”.
If you want to get your guest post on the top,then you must attract visitors to it and a perfect title will do the job.I had already written a post on how to write stunning titles,you can take a look at it here
3.Question Your Visitors and Promise them a post as an Answer-
This technique actually works, just question your visitors at the end of your post and promise them with an answer in your upcoming guest posts,or you can even promise them an answer in your own blog with a backlink to it,this will gradually increase your popularity and will also get you some traffic
4.Reply to the comments-
Be sure to reply to the readers comments,this will build up trust among you and the blog readers
,you can even ask the readers to visit your site for many more posts like the ones you have made in the guest blog.
5.Check for spelling errors-
Check the whole post and try not to make any spelling or grammatical errors, Read it 3-4 times and ensure that there are no mistakes in the post.A post with no mistakes will surely impress the readers and also the blog’s author.
6.Be sure to introduce yourself-
Introduce yourself and write few lines about your blog at the beginning of the guest post,this will help you to get traffic to your blog and also will increase your popularity among the readers.You can start like- “Hello, This is Hari[Your Name] from Le Geeks[Your Blog Link]”
7.Avoid too many outbound links-
Avoid linking the post with many other blog’s, Even if you do,link it to a single site
( Your Own Site) and one backlink at the top or in between the post will do the job. Remember,its a “post” not a place for “Spammy Links”.
8.End your post with these lines- “Its Your Turn”
End your post with “Its Your Turn” and call out for the readers views and opinions. Ask them whether they liked the post or ask them whether you have missed out anything. This will surely get you lot of comments for your guest post.
9.Talk about your audience-
Talk about your readers,for example you can begin the post with- “I had got a message from curious reader…” or something much more interactive and impressive,this will surely make them comment or email you with requests for many more posts.This will increase your popularity just through a guest post.
