Need Traffic? Here’s a Simple Strategy to Woo Bloggers and Win Their Readers Over

woo bloggers

Do you want to get your articles published on sites like Forbes, Huffington Post, or Entrepreneur Magazine? Of course, you do. It’s a great way to gain traffic and generate sales.

So, what are you waiting for?

I know what you are thinking: “It’s easier for you, Neil. You have an established brand, and you are a well-known blogger.” In truth, the sites I email don’t know who I am and are not aware of my success as a blogger.

In essence, I have to work just as hard as you do to get an article published on one of these popular sites.

You don’t really have any excuses. Why? Because you don’t need a big brand to post on these sites, and you don’t even have to be a blogger.

Download this 5 steps cheat sheet to learn how to woo top bloggers and win their readers over.

Here’s how you can get your content featured on sites like Forbes and Huffington Post:

Step #1: Network with writers

All of these popular sites already have contributors. Find writers who blog about topics related to your industry, and start networking with them.

You want to do this because it is really difficult to get your articles published on these sites if you just send them a cold email. These sites get hundreds of such emails every day, and a lot of them go unanswered.

But if an existing contributor introduces you to them, there is a good chance you will get accepted as long as you follow the steps below.

So, how do you network with writers? For example, let’s say you want to contribute marketing-related articles to Forbes. The first step would be to look for writers who blog about marketing-related topics on Forbes.

forbes jayson

While browsing through the Forbes website, I noticed a contributor by the name of Jayson DeMers, who writes a lot of high quality articles. This means he should have a good reputation with Forbes, and he probably knows a few of its staff members.

Once you find contributors like Jayson, Google their names and find where they hang out. With a quick search, I found Jayson’s Twitter handle and his company website.

Next, connect with them through commenting on their articles, sharing the articles on your social profiles, tweeting at them, and sending them an email with suggestions on potential topics they can blog on.

You’ll notice that some writers will ignore you, but roughly 50% of the people you network with will actually respond to you. Just think of it this way: who wouldn’t respond to an email like this?

Subject: Your article on Forbes was superb

Hey Jayson,

I just wanted to let you know that your article on social media trends was great. I loved it so much that I had to tweet it out.

Keep up the great work!

Cheers,

Neil

Chances are you’ll get a simple reply back that looks something like this:

Thanks Neil!

Jayson

It is a reply nonetheless, and you can continue the conversation from there.

Step #2: Create a portfolio

If you are already a blogger, you can skip this step because you can use your existing content as your portfolio. But if you don’t have a blog or have never blogged before, you’ll have to generate a few pieces of content.

Don’t worry, your content doesn’t have to be published anywhere. You can just write it in Microsoft Word.

Just follow the steps within this blog post to learn how to write content like I do, and follow this post to come up with content ideas that’ll do well.

Once you finish writing a few posts, you can either hire an editor from sites like Craigslist, or you can hit up my editor Ahna and have her proofread your work. This will give your writing the polish it needs to woo over the big sites.

Step #3: Get introduced

If you want to blog on sites like Forbes, you need to get introduced to them by existing writers. This is where your networking comes in handy. Email the contributors you’ve been networking with, and ask for an introduction.

In most cases, they won’t have an issue making an introduction. Typically, their introduction email will look something like this:

Hey Tom,

I’d like to introduce you to Neil Patel, a well-known blogger and co-founder of KISSmetrics and Crazy Egg. Neil is interested in becoming a contributor to Forbes.

Neil, meet Tom, the editor with whom I work at Forbes.

I’ll let you two take it from here!

Cheers,

Jayson

A typical response that you’ll receive will look something like this:

Hello, Neil.

Why don’t you send me a bio and a few (i.e., no more than 4 or 5) samples of things you’ve written.

Tom

Step #4: Do your research before you respond

Before you respond to the email, you’ll want to do your research. For example, if you wanted to contribute to Forbes, you would first look to see what has done well and what hasn’t.

Go to the Quick Sprout homepage, enter the URL of the site you are looking to contribute to, and then click on the “Social Media Analysis” tab.

You’ll see a table that looks something like this:

forbes results

The list above organizes all of the posts on Forbes by popularity, placing the most popular ones at the top. Follow these URLs to see how the articles were written. Pay special attention to their headlines.

The reason you want to do this is because 8 out of 10 people will read your headline, while only 2 out of 10 will read the rest of your post. This means if a post did well, chances are it’s because of the headline.

This should give you potential headline and content ideas that you can submit to that site.

For example, one of Forbes’ popular headlines is: The Top 7 Online Marketing Trends Dominating 2014. You can then spin that headline and submit a similar but unique headline. Here are some variations:

  • The Top 7 SEO Trends Dominating 2014
  • The Top 7 Content Marketing Trends Dominating 2014
  • Prediction: The Top 10 Marketing Trends That’ll Dominate 2015

Now that you’ve got a few article ideas, it’s time to write your post. Follow the same steps you took creating your portfolio samples, including hiring someone to proofread your writing.

Step #5: Submit your article

It’s time to send your reply to the editor. Send him or her a bio of yourself, attach your samples, and pitch your article idea. When pitching your idea, make sure you include the article.

Chances are the editor will require a few changes, but once you make them, you’ll get your article published.

In the off chance the editor doesn’t like the article you pitched, ask him or her for feedback, make your adjustments, and try again.

Just don’t give up, and make sure you respond in a timely fashion. The quicker you are with your communication, the more likely you’ll get something published.

If you don’t get a response right away, don’t worry – editors of these big sites are busy. Just set a reminder to follow up with them in five days.

Conclusion

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never blogged before or you don’t have a well-known personal brand. You can still get content published on popular sites.

All you have to do is follow the steps above, and you’ll eventually get your content published. Once you get accepted on a few sites, you’ll be given a login so that you can self-publish whenever you want, which will speed up the process.

In the long run, this will help you build brand awareness and gain more traffic to your website.

So, in what other ways can you get your content published on popular sites?

  1. Nikhil Waghdhare :

    Hey Neil,

    These are some great strategies to get approved guest post quickly.
    I love your these strategies and start working on it soon.
    Thank you for sharing it with us… 🙂

  2. Lewis - Marketing Bees :

    Cheers Neil, once again another epic traffic generating/networking article from you I’ve thrown up on Twitter.

    It’s all about getting in with the influencers in your niche.

    And of course once you can a website like Forbes to your portfolio of ‘guest posts’ it all becomes a little easier to convince other influencers in your niche.

    Cheers once again!

  3. Greg Strandberg :

    Good tips! I’d like your next post to be on how to boost your confidence and attempt to query Forbes. That would help.

  4. Viraj Maheshwari :

    hey niel

    very informative post..i was looking for such usefull tips

    Keep guiding us

  5. Narcis Radoi :

    Thank you for the tips,

    These things actually work as I had a similar article published in a major online news website in the industry that I work in, related to music and music business.

  6. Amit Bhagria :

    Hi Neil,

    Great tip. If you genuinely appreciate someone’s work, you will definitely get a positive response. Patience is the key here. Just wanted to know, if the article gets published on forbes or Huffington Post, how much will it help in boosting my site’s ranking or PR? Will one article help or I need to publish several articles to see some boost in my rankings.

    Further, I am publishing articles on Linkedin as well. Will these help in any way for my site’s ranking?

    Regards,

    Amit

  7. Kerry Russell :

    Hi Niel,

    I’m new to your blog and I must say that I love your content so far. 🙂

    You’ve shared some great above. Thank you!

    Those relationships are SO important, for so many different reasons – having guest post pitches accepted being just one of them.

    Keep up the good work! Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    Kerry

  8. Reaching out to current writers is something people tend to overlook, but can extremely helpful in getting both your blog out there, but can also work for promoting your company. Apparently, writers tend to get mostly emails angry or disagreeing with them, so a simple “Thanks for the great article” or “XYZ was a great topic, do you have any recommendations on where I can learn more?” can go a long way.

  9. Adesanmi Adedotun :

    Hi Neil,

    Getting accepted in site like this is like a heck but with this analysis, it will be less difficult to get things done in a matter of time. Using your site homepage as an analysis tool can go a long way to helping in getting a article ideas!

  10. Jayme Joyce :

    So timely for me Neil!
    It’s sort of magical how every post you write is like continuing a conversation I’m already thinking about!

    QUESTION: Would you recommend doing this research and writing the submission article when you ask for the introduction to ensure you had a timely response?

    I guess I would just be afraid I’d lose momentum if I had the editor of Forbes on the line and was like- “Please hold while I actually write something for you!”
    But then again since you write about 8 articles per week I suppose churning out a killer article is like breathing to you at this point!

    Stay Gold

  11. So simple and easy, thanks for sharing so useful strategy. I would never think of that.

  12. sangeetha menon :

    Neil I feel so confident reading your post that it’s easy to be on forbes or other top notch sites. Your detailing is crisp and to the point. Will implement these and will definitely let you know the progress.

  13. Neil,

    Your this article looks like a lie. You already know Jayson DeMeyers for quite long. You had already given him your video testimonials about his SEO services. You offer SEO services and he also offers SEO services 🙂 Do you think all your blog readers are stupid?

  14. Hi Neil,

    Great article – just what I’ve been looking for. Our company designs the perfectore posture transformer system – and although our product is by far the best in the industry we’ve been having a tough time getting the word out. Thanks for the great info.

  15. Absolutely brilliant tips, Neil. It’s something I would have never thought of on my own.

    M Patel, I’m almost certain Neil was simply using Jayson as an example!

    Anyway, it’s time for me to start stalking. Lol. Just kidding! Thanks again for these tips, Neil!

    Regards,
    Amanda

  16. Victoria Ipri :

    @MPatel – You might actually be a true moron. Neil wasn’t implying he did NOT know Jayson. He was simply using the email exchange as an example of how to go about engaging with a person of influence on a site like Forbes. Sheesh.

  17. Stephen Selao :

    Great article, Neil.

    In addition to Quick Sprout’s tool, BuzzSumo is a great alternative to finding content that is published on other websites but not on the one you want to write for.

  18. Pawas Gupta :

    Hi Neil,

    Just curious. Do you happen to know agencies that network and build relations with bloggers on clients behalf?

    Is this what content marketing agencies do?

    Regards,
    Pawas

  19. Well I am really surprised by the way you make so complex things simple. This is the reason i never forget to read your Blog/.

  20. Ross Kirwan :

    Amazing read. You just made the synopsis in my brain fire like a machine gun!

    Thanks 🙂

  21. Naomi@StartBizQuiJob :

    Hi Neil,

    “In essence, I have to work just as hard as you do to get an article published on one of these popular sites”

    I find that statement VERY hard to believe Neil!

    It’s been a dream of mine to get an post published on such popular sites. Thanks for just making it a reality.

    Naomi

  22. Catherine Dowling :

    Thank you Neil,
    This is an excellent post as are all your posts. So much info. given away by you. Very generous.
    Catherine

  23. Freelancer dream :

    Thanks Neil, that was awesome – as usual 🙂
    Question: How many times do you generally email the writers before asking for an introduction?

  24. Neil is never wrong with what he says. I’ve been an active reader of this great blog

    If Neil says jump into the fire to get traffic, I will do it, I know I won’t get hurt.

    Thanks for sharing yet another awesome post.

    I will be testing out your strategy towards contributing contents to great site like Forbes.

  25. Insightful piece as usual, Neil. Thanks.

  26. Dima Al Mahsiri :

    Hi Neil,

    Networking is very important as you mentioned, it really helped me find good contributors for my blog. It also made it easier for me to become a contributor for answers.com , which is great!
    But the most important thing is that you should be able to write compiling content that stands among all other bloggers.

  27. Neil,

    This is an incredibly helpful post. Bottom line, like anything else, it takes persistence, hard work and relentless hustle to grow and to get your voice heard. Thanks for the article.

  28. John Zakaria :

    Really great new strategy to get known and get high quality traffic.
    Thanks Neil 🙂

  29. Terrence Kommal :

    Hi Neil!

    Congrats on yet another fantastic piece! In fact, I have just began doing exactly this from last week, and am happy, based on your post, that I am on the right track!

    it’s now become a habit to look out for your fantastic content almost daily, as it is both inspirational and motivating!

    Another method of follow these writers, is to look for them on LinkedIn, which is also working well so far!

    Stay Well n Blessed!

    Regards,
    Terrence

  30. I’m always amazed at how simple it is to connect with people. A simple thank you and some value added to them is a great way to connect. I completely agree with your first point.

    My results on the web improved a little after I started sending emails, blog comments when I thought the post was worthy of it. Biggest take away. I wish this article was around when I had started.

    Heed these words for sure.

  31. Hi Neil,

    I appreciate the actionable tips that you shared.

    We see TONS of these kinds of posts on the web about how to get your post published on authority sites like Forbes but none really share actionable tips on how to make it happen.

    I look forward to reading your future posts.

  32. What should I say about you? You are so amazing. Its time to contact sub editors and make some deals.

  33. Neil.Thanks for the tips and it was certainly a helpful post .

  34. Excellent post Neil. Lot to learn from you.

  35. Hi Neil,

    As I expected! great post, more power to you.

  36. Ryan Biddulph :

    Hi Neil,

    Everything really does come down to a smart outreach campaign. Form bonds with people who can influence, from authority sites, and they’ll open doors you’d struggle to find on your own.

    I’ve built my blog and brand by connecting with influential bloggers. The same approach applies from lower tier, power blogs, to the top tier ones you’ve discussed, except that you need to befriend writers on these sites to bypass other gatekeepers.

    Once you’ve bypassed gatekeepers, and connect with the people who can publish your content, it’s up to you to produce something excellent.

    In many cases, it need not be epic. I mean, do your best darn job, but hey…I’ve read enough entrepreneur.com articles which were solid, but not too spectacular, and certainly I could write something which would out do it. Of course, I wouldn’t, because as noted, you have to research, and publish stuff which would do well on the site.

    If the case of an Entrepreneur article, that’d take me about 7 minutes lol….not knocking them though, they rock, and so does your awesome outreach strategy.

    Neil, thanks so much once again. Your strategies rock in a wonderful way.

    I’ll tweet in a bit so you can get max traffic through my feed.

    Signing off from Fiji!

  37. Harish kumar :

    Hi Neil,

    Stunning article again,i’m really wondering how to build a brand because big guys can only post over top brands.Now i am able to know that we don’t need to build a brand but a strong branded relationship with these big guys.I also have a question that how posting in big brand can influence my sites traffic and popularity.I think it may take long time to do so.Thanks for sharing great post 😀

  38. Thanks Neil for sharing this. I consistently follow your blog. How do you always know what I want to read? lol 😛

    This was a great post, very helpful. I would love if sometime you write on how to make titles interesting and also how to write a good bio. If you have already written on them, it would be great if you can share the links to the post.

  39. Hey Niel,

    Big fan of you and as usual very useful, keep spreading the knowledge.

  40. Junaid Raza :

    Thanks Neil,
    It’s really a wonderful way to catch a lot of readers. But it gives tough time.

  41. Debbie Bakare :

    Neil you are simply the best. I have enjoyed your posts and strartegies for a few years and they all work. Thank you so much for your time and posts.
    I would like to contribute to your academy financially and support with some contents.
    Thank you.

    • Debbie, thanks for the kind words of support. I’ll definitely let you know when and if opportunities arise 🙂

  42. Hey Neil,

    It’s very in-depth tips to publish articles in Forbes. I read all your post. Extremely blog content with great tips. Keep on more great tips. Thanks!

  43. Hi Neil, indeed you have shared good strategy to be a part of reputed blogs sites. These are the really practical and useful steps you have shred.

  44. Seriously??? I love how everyone is jumping on this saying how fantastic it is when it’s just not. Maybe all the negative or constructive comments are being deleted who knows? Usually I like your stuff Neil but this is just complete rubbish fairy dust. Let me try and poke a couple holes in this theory if I may:

    In the beginning you say, “I know what you are thinking: “It’s easier for you, Neil. You have an established brand, and you are a well-known blogger.” In truth, the sites I email don’t know who I am and are not aware of my success as a blogger.

    In essence, I have to work just as hard as you do to get an article published on one of these popular sites.

    You don’t really have any excuses. Why? Because you don’t need a big brand to post on these sites, and you don’t even have to be a blogger.”

    Ok so you’re saying your brand, following, and notoriety didn’t help at all? The WHOLE introduction email from Jayson is exactly about those things: “well-known blogger and co-founder of KISSmetrics and Crazy Egg.”

    You really think you’re getting that introduction if you’re just regular ol’ neil and not a well-known blogger and co-founder of kiss and crazy egg? I certainly don’t. People don’t want to read articles on Forbes from joe schmo off the street with no following. They want people with a brand behind them, that are movers and shakers in whatever niche they specialize in. I mean honestly, Jayson’s introduction email completely contradicts every point you’re trying to prove in this article.

    I really hope people don’t waste their time and take your advice in this article and instead focus on building a credible brand and THEN attempt what you did once they have established credibility.

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    • Jasper Oldersom :

      Hi Ryan,

      Do you think that Neil just woke up one day and was well known in this industry?

      He is helping you to do the same if you really take the time to implement the steps.

      Don’t start with a guest post at Forbes, try something a little lower entry first and build your name from there.

      I hope that makes sense.

      Cheers!

      • Hey Jasper,

        Yep makes perfect sense and that’s my point. We should start smaller because we don’t have the brand/credibility that neil does to get on forbes. However, the whole point of neil’s article was that it’s just as hard for me as it is for him to get a guest post on forbes. As in it’s equally difficult for both of us.

        That’s just flat out not the case. Neil got on forbes because he’s Neil. If I take the exact same steps as he did with equally good content, but no name behind it I’m not getting on Forbes. IMO he’s doing his readers a disservice by posting articles such as these.

    • It really doesn’t help. Most of those guys have no clue who I am and they aren’t familiar with the marketing world. Sure it helps if I want to guest post on Marketing Land, AdAge or Search Engine Land… but not general sites like Inc, Forbes, etc. Most of their editors have never heard of me, my companies, and have very little clue what SEO is.

  45. Dr. Swapnil Bhanushali :

    hi Neil,

    Day by day i am falling in love with articles you write.

    The articles written by you are very informative and helpful.

    Thanks,

    Swapnil

  46. Hey Neil,

    Thank you for sharing these strategies with us. I will definitely work on these.

    Thanks

  47. Hi Neil,

    The truth of the matter is that getting a guest post itself isn’t all that difficult but the how to go about in getting that attention is what matters and interestingly enough, this post has opened up lots of things.
    Thanks a lot for those tips you shared.

    PS: I found this post of yours shared on kingged.com

  48. Jasper Oldersom :

    Hi Neil,

    I wanted to add something to #1..And that is to be persistent.

    If you can’t get a reply from that person in the first try, just try again some other time.

    And asking a thought provoking question will increase your chances of being replied to.

    Cheers!

  49. Lots and lots of good techniques.

  50. Hi Neil,
    You have a way of taking a mountain and turning it into a molehill.
    Getting noticed by such large sites seems impossible but your approach makes it doable.
    I would also add that an organized system of tracking interactions is helpful. A list documenting a prospects info, your attempts to reach out, and their responses or lack of – can make it easier to track results.

  51. Rohan Bhardwaj :

    Hi Neil,

    This is indeed the best tip to get a post published on leading websites. Prior reading this article, I too was under the impression that it is easy for you, now I have a different mindset.

    You have motivated me very much. I am going to pitch many ideas now with the proper set.

    Thanks Neil, anyway I found your post on Kingged.

  52. Darrin Keller :

    Great article, I appreciate the actionable insight.

  53. There is only one way to know for sure. Its by trying the same strategy on you. Could i write an article on your blog? I have a classified site targeting small business. Since you too target small business. I could write an article on how to promote small business online. Is it ok with you. I do write articles in a conversational tone.

    • Keerthi, my website, which is an authority on the online marketing space, is also consistent with your target market and with Neil’s I would be happy to get a proposed article from you as well as from him.

      Since I know the quality of his work, but not yours, it’s only fair for me to say that his is more likely to be published.

      On the other hand, I would read yours and give it fair consideration.
      Phil

  54. These things are easier said than done.

    This is a useful article but I think you’re missing some points Neil.

    You don’t grow your network by folding your arms. You need to get out there and start creating something useful to people.

    If you don’t post quality articles, the high authority sites won’t be willing to feature your work on their blogs.

    First things first. I believe you need to create a powerful resource before you begin networking with the not-so popular people in your niche. Then build up your profile from there.

    Starting from the very top would make things difficult and complicated.

    What are you thoughts?

  55. Chery Schmidt :

    Hello Neil, What a great article, I think we all should be networking with other bloggers, this is just part of the fun Right? Your advice to do research on these people to find out where they hang out was so Great, who would think of that.. Sweet!!

    Oh Yeh I do believe you need to get out there and let people get to know like and trust you, HUH? Thanks for sharing.. Chery :))

    P.S I did land here today VIA Kingged

  56. Hello Neil,

    such a informative article, i will follow this steps but i think we have to wait because i do not think that we will start getting guest soon.

    Regards
    Sam

  57. I. C. Daniel :

    The approaching thing, Forbes writer and stuff is indeed a smart one and works no doubt. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Kind regards,

  58. Vikas Sharma :

    Hey Neil,
    Blogging is my first interest. But I am in a dilemma. I am new to this blogging field so whether I can post articles on Forbes or Huffington??

  59. Great advice and article Neil! Connecting with others is a important factor that often gets overlooked.

  60. I was looking for actual article to get published my article on forbes and got this one. Thanks Neil.

  61. Dude! Neil! You definitely wooed us over! If you don’t mind, we’re going to throw this blog post into our weekly email! Give you a little shout out cause we love what you’re doing. Keep up the PHENOMENAL work!

  62. Jithin Joseph :

    hats off, Neil ! this was something I couldn’t miss at all. . let me start dreaming writing for big brands like Forbes.

  63. Hi,
    I’m new to this blogging world. Although I’m taking interest in blogging since last year and now I’ve started my own blog after reading articles on several blogs about how to start from scratch.

    You have written very correct which in my views is essential to connect with fellow people to grow your self in others eyes and get useful tips in return from them too!

  64. Emily Capito :

    Neil – leave it to you to break something intimidating down into such easy and logical steps that anyone can execute. Thanks!

  65. Hello, I seemed fantastic neil hope your strategy functions also in Spanish. regards 🙂

  66. In detail article Neil!

    Just wanted to know how can I get in touch with any publishing media in the first place when no body knows me!

    Your input will be appreciated!

  67. Hi Neil, awesome post showing how to build a long established road to bigger authority, helped a lot. And yes, the tool you gave on the home page for free is a good one man.

  68. Hi Neil,
    Great piece of advice.

    Oh, yeah!
    Thanks for adding me to your LinkedIn group.

  69. Neeraj Dalal :

    This is indeed the best tip to get a post published on leading websites. Prior reading this article, I too was under the impression that it is easy for you, now I have a different mindset.

    You have motivated me very much. I am going to pitch many ideas now with the proper set.

  70. Titaniun Bar :

    Hey Niel….!!!
    I love your these strategies and start working on it soon.
    Thank you for sharing it with us…
    Great piece of advice.
    Great advice and article Neil!

  71. Hi Neil, great post and timely. I’m just starting to reach out to relevant bloggers but would like your advice. Would you say its best that they post on your blog and then distribute out or have them continue to write in their space and mention your company? Take Care…

    • Kelli, I think either strategy is useful. However, having them post on your site gives you a steady stream of content, which is why I prefer it 🙂

  72. Hi Neil,

    Great article. Really enjoyed reading it. When you set to accomplish something like getting a guest post on Forbes or Mashable, you can get lost in the “how-to-begin”, this article is a good step by step and encouraging guide.

    Thanks for sharing!

  73. Hey Neil,

    These blog posts have been invaluable for me in trying to grow my social media and blog presence. I’m usually all over the place trying to figure out what to do since I just recently started with my online presence, but this post has helped keep me focus and understand how to really network with other influential bloggers.

    Thank you for the tips and I look forward to more of your posts in the future!

  74. Some great advice here Neil. I’m certainly going to introduce some of these steps into my own outreach techniques.

    Great work!

    Another superb stuff, Neil! Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge and experience with us.

    I will make use of this tactic (sharing my knowledge on photography) on other famous blogging sites and see how effective it is.

    Thanks again. 🙂

  76. Thanks for the advice Neil! I’ve always wondered how to get a mention from sites like Huff Post and others like it, so I’m definitely going to give some of these tips a try. We’ve had a mention from The Globe and Mail in the past and that brought a great traffic boost at the time, so if we could make it into some other big publications then I’m hoping that it will have the same effect. Anyway, thanks again for the tips!

  77. Hi Neil,

    An incredibly helpful post, you’ve just simplified blogger connects, Awesome. Thank you!

    I’ve question on the blogger response to the typical publishers note of asking for bio and samples.

    Would you suggest doing the research #4 and writing a submission article in the first go or just furnishing old published articles as samples or a combination of both? Is there a response format you can share?

    • Pearl, I think furnishing old published articles and integrating them with your current new articles is the way to go. I don’t have a format at this moment.

  78. Hi Neil,

    Thanks a lot for such an awesome post. I recently launched my travel blog and this post will definitely boast my confidence to reach up to popular websites for guest posts. My question is if its okay to send one of my current post as guest post ( as very few people read it on my website due to lack of traffic) or is it necessary to come up with a new post?

    Thanks again for making it easy for newbies like me :).
