Its no news that if you want to grow your business organically, you can’t do without guest post writing. You need to know how to write a guest post and the right places to publish a guest post.
Bonding with influencers in your niche and leveraging your presence are two guest posting related activities not to be ignored.
You need to guest post intelligently I repeat intelligently to accelerate your business through this medium.
Sadly, most bloggers are not privy to the power of guest posting, they start, get nervous, scream ‘holy grail!!!’ and throw away this powerful tactic because they don’t know how to grow their venture through this channel.
It’s a lot of work, yes.
If you do guest posting right, you will become a highly successful blogger with all the bell and whistles.
The only problem is you don’t know how to do it.
Well, that’s why you are reading this post. You want to learn from a pro like me because you want to grow your business.
Without much ado, follow these tips to grow your online income through guest posting.
1: Guest Post on Blogs from Your Niche
Relevance remains one of the attributes of a worthy guest post.
For example, my niche is to help bloggers and affiliate marketers become successful, from my posts to my eBooks and blogging courses.
So where do I guest post?
I guest post on blogs directly related to the blogging tips and affiliate marketing tips niche. A guest post on a blog related to health or technology will not do my business any good. Chances that the readers of these blogs are not interested in what I have to offer are very high.
So, I won’t stick around.
Instead, I look for sources in my niche that are accepting guest posts. They already have readers who will be interested in what my business offer. I Pitch these sources and guest post there.
2: Guest Post for Prosperous Bloggers
If you want to excel, meet people better than you. That’s very true isn’t it?
By the same token, if you want to become a successful blogger, guest post for the successful bloggers.

Hey guys; seek out and befriend prosperous bloggers. Help the pros and help yourself too. Build relationships. Tap into their army of followers and readers and grow your reputation. Learn from these invaluable blogging tips.
3: Every Guest Post Should be Your Best
Do not make the same mistake I made earlier – when I was still a novice blogger. Then, I always want to save the best contents for my blog and submit low quality crappy contents for guest posts. Guess how I ended. I never succeeded with guest posts. Not even one!
My advice for y’all guys:
Do not hold back your best. Give your best. Plan, research and write a very high-quality guest post. Every guest post should be your best. Impress the readers of the bloggers who agree to accept a guest post from you.
4: Guest Post Persistently
Don’t expect to be a billionaire overnight after landing your first guest post. Even Pat Flynn cannot guarantee that.
After my first few guest posts, high traffic did not come knocking at my door for IncomeObstacle. I know how guest post work. I was persistent. Waiting patiently because like all growth in life, business growth is progressive, happening in stages.
Most amateur bloggers believe if they land one guest post on a top blog that they will become famous and rich. Oh no.
Read the next line.
Successful bloggers started like you but persistently and patiently publish guest posts on high profile blogs throughout their niche.
I’ve published 300 guest posts on Blogging Tips and Affiliate Marketing. I’ve published 3 to 10 guest posts on at least 6 blogs that I can think of now. I’m still working on another guest post.
Again, be persistent. Keep on guest posting on high quality relevant blogs. Build quality business bonds. Keep in touch as much as you can. Supercharge your blogging business profits with the power of guest post.
Remember, don’t hold back your best. Build bonds. Keep in touch. Remove yourself from stranger zone.
Choose quality and relevance our quantity.
Don’t be self-centered.
