Here’s how I know:
I created Guestblogging.com to make my life easier.
Once upon a time, I was an editor at Copyblogger, perhaps the top marketing blog in the world. With over 3 million page views a month, we got thousands of unsolicited guest post pitches every month, and I was one of the poor souls responsible for going through them all.
It sucked. Because as any editor knows, most pitches suck.
Not just the grammar or formatting. The vast majority of the pitches are entirely off-topic.
After politely rejecting thousands of them, I couldn’t help thinking…
Why isn’t there a training program to teach people how to do this right? It would make everyone’s lives so much easier!
And so Guestblogging.com was born.
Since its inception, we have trained over 1,500 writers to write for authority blogs and online magazines. They’ve been published on The Huffington Post, Forbes, Fast Company, Lifehacker, Business Insider, and just about every other imaginable publication that accepts work from non-staff writers.
We get no fee for placement. On the contrary, we charge a flat fee for an extensive training and certification program, and then the majority of our students are on their own.
We also have an editing service available for an extra fee where our on staff editors go through several revisions with the writer before approving it to be sent to the appropriate editor. They assist the writer with choosing their topic, the flow of ideas, copy editing – everything you would normally have to do yourself.
Make your life easier.
Of course, we work with some editors more closely than others. For example, we have special review processes set up with sites like Tiny Buddha, Problogger, and Marc and Angel, where our editors work directly with their editors to deliver the perfect post.
If you’d like to set up a similar process for your site, please contact us.
