Something that I try to suggest to my clients is that guest posting for others is a great way to get your name out into the community about your area expertise.
People are often trying to find interesting content for their readers and are happy to have submitted content so I suggest that it never hurts to ask!
If you have a blog, you should also consider guest posts because the person who wrote the post generally will also promote the post, bringing their audience to you. It’s a really great two way street!
It’s also, as mentioned above, a great way to bring in fresh content to your blog when it can be hard to keep content coming at a regular pace.
My guest posts
Check our a couple of guest posts I’ve written in the last couple of weeks. The first is about social media for parents on Peek Inside the Fishbowl, a great Ottawa parenting blog, and the other is on the Smart Spaces blog, run by my friend Heather who runs a business helping people get organized (something *I* definitely could use more of :))
Have you written guest posts? Do you host them on your blog?
