Benefits of Becoming a Blog Contributor
You Gain Credibility
Want to prove yourself as an expert within your field? Offer to write a guest blog post on a topic that you have years of experience with. People love to read about the journey to success, particularly when they’re just starting out in the business world because it’s inspiring and rings true to what they’re working on. Even stories about mistakes made are welcome in the blogosphere. In many cases, they’re even more valuable because, in addition to learning something new, the audience can stop feeling like they were “wrong” for what they did in the past and understand that mistakes are simply a part of learning.
Link Back to Your Website
While we don’t accept self-promotional material (in which you talk about your product repeatedly) we do allow for your inks to be included at the bottom of your blog article. Readers can click the link and you get immediate traffic to your website and other platforms.
Why are backlinks important? Backlinks are especially valuable for SEO because they represent a “vote of confidence” from one site to another. In essence, backlinks to your website are a signal to search engines that others vouch for your content.
