Guest Blogging Secrets Exposed!
Here's A Quick Easy Way to Get Your Guest Posts Written and Accepted
Do you struggle to get your guest posts written?
Do you find it difficult to find places to accept your guest post?
Are you waiting weeks for replies from sites that you've offered a guest post?
I know the feeling...
I've struggled to get guest posts accepted.
One site claimed on their "how to post" page that they'd get back to everyone sending a post within 14 days.
One month later, I'm still waiting.
The same goes for another site - the article is just pending. For what seems like forever.
It's sitting there in cyberspace, twiddling its thumbs, looking bored and not serving any purpose for anyone.
Which is frustrating, to say the least.
The posts are supposed to be exclusive to the site they're submitted to.
They can't be re-used anywhere else, just in case that site accepts.
I've waited this long because both sites are big "authority" sites so, at least in theory, there should be a nice traffic boost if and when the post is accepted.
But with no reaction whatsoever, who knows if or when they'll be accepted?
So I was left in a quandary.
There are quite a few around:
Some are excellent like Cathy Stucker's Blogger LinkUp.
Others are "buyer beware" and you need to do as much research on the vendor as you would finding your own places to guest post directly.
And some of the specialist sites I've used but let's just say I wouldn't rush back to many of them.
All of which led me to think:
There must be a better way!
And there is!
The answer is Fiverr.
Yes, that site again...
It has its ups and downs.
But for bread and butter guest posting, I've found it hard to beat.
There are pros and cons, of course:
But you need to do everything in the right order and in the right way to maximise your results.
Which is where this guest blogging course comes in...
I've created a series of 6 videos that walk you through the entire process.
Video 1 is an overview
Just in case you're not sure what guest blogging is or what it can do for you.
Or need a refresher as to why it's different from article submissions, press releases, etc.
It's worth a watch and if I haven't managed to include the first video in this WSO post I'll put a link somewhere obvious (last time I tried to include a video in a thread it didn't work, then I did the exact same thing a day later and everything went fine. Go figure.)
Video 2 looks at the match making sites
The sites like Cathy's excellent Blogger LinkUp and three other sites that I think are worthwhile for this kind of thing.
One of the sites can even create the guest posts for you if you want and you get various other options to almost automate the whole process.
Which can be good. But if the control freak in you prefers to know what's going to happen in advance then it's less good.
Your choice on that one but at least you'll know about it. And, no, it's not Unique Article Wizard which offers a kind-of similar service.
Video 3 takes an in depth look at using Fiverr for guest posting
There are just over 15,000 guest posting gigs according to Fiverr's own search figures although Google "only" thinks there are about 8,000 there.
Whichever figure you believe there are lots of possible places you could put up a guest post using Fiverr.
Some of them are general.
Others are specialist.
Near enough any topic you can think of - with the usual adult oriented exceptions which you have to hunt a lot harder for - are easily found.
Video 4 covers the important part of filtering the gigs
As I said earlier in this page, there are some things to watch out for.
With over fifteen thousand gigs to choose from it stands to reason that there will be the occasional bad apple.
But once you've watched this video you'll stand a very high chance of picking top quality gigs and should do better than the 90% success rate I got on my first test (I've got better since).
And even then, you'll still be ahead of paying a specialist site between $30 and $50 for the same quality you can achieve with my methods for between $10 and $20 if you outsource your guest posts or just the $5 gig cost if you write them yourself.
So if you drop the occasional $5 you're still in profit after the first successful gig.
Video 5 covers getting good quality articles
Yes, I'll be recommending the usual iWriter here. Or an alternative service that I've used on and off over the years if you don't want to be the quality control editor.
Much like Fiverr, iWriter needs to be used correctly.
I'll show you how I get a very high success rate from even their Basic level writers and I'll also show you the difference between a $3 article and a $12.50 one.
It's then up to you whether you're prepared to do a tiny amount of editing to save over $9 or whether you choose the middle route at $7 and stand a decent chance of not needing to do any editing. Your choice entirely.
If you've got an iWriter account, you can tell from those prices that the guest posts I'm talking about are well above the minimum suggested by a lot of Fiverr gigs.
I go for 700 word articles and I'll let you know why I do that in this video in case you haven't guessed that it's because Google like to index words. (OK, I've just told you here, but you knew that anyway, it's not exactly a trade secret)
Video 6 wraps things up
It ties up any loose ends that have been rattling around your mind as you watch the first 5 videos and sets you up for your future guest posting.
All in all, this is very workable and I think it should be one of the things you use to help push your sites higher up the search results.
It's easy to do and you could give it to an outsourcer if that's your style.
It will add to the variety of links pointing back - I tested all the ones I bought and, with the exception of the one that vanished as soon as it was posted, they got indexed fast.
Between one and two days.
So there's no need to buy the gig extras that offer indexing - it will almost certainly happen naturally.
Which, in turn, tells you that Google is happy with this method of getting links. Because it sidelines sites it doesn't like and pushes them to the back of the queue for indexing.
As with several of my recent WSOs, there are no OTOs but there is the opportunity to buy either Private Label Rights or Master Resell Rights.
No pressure to do that.
And if you do use an outsourcer and need to share these videos with them, I'm happy for you to do that without either of those options so long as that's the only "extra" thing you do with them.
All the videos are downloadable.
And if you go for PLR or MRR rights then you'll get the original Camtasia camrec files as well, just in case you need them.
All you need to do now is click the buy button.
You'll get instant access to all 6 videos and in just under an hour you'll know everything you need to know to finally get you on the guest blogging route.

It's been an interesting experiment to carry out and I'll be adding this type of guest blogging to the variety of ways I get traffic to my sites in future.
