Why Your Guest Post Should Not Be Your Best Post?

Thumbnail image for Why Your Guest Post Should Not Be Your Best Post?

I’ve long been a believer in guest blogging. Not only is it one of the best ways to drive traffic to a blog, but it’s also a great way to exercise…

Your Creative Muscles !

The downside to writing guest posts is twofold:

1. Writing for another audience can be difficult because you have to shift your mindset into the core of what makes another blogger tick. If you fail here, your guest post will likely go unread, or at best, unappreciated.

2. It’s tough to decide what type of post to write. Do you give away your best content to other blogs, or do you save it for your own blog?

The first problem gets better over time, but the 2nd is a challenge…

You’ll Always Face !

Of course, you’ll find people on both sides of that argument, but I’ve always tried to write guest posts of equal or greater quality to my regular posts. The reason is simple, doing so gives you a greater chance of getting a post approved, and gives foreign audiences a real glimpse at…

Your Blogging Skill !

Thus, the advice I’ve given to other bloggers writing guest posts has been to write the best you can, and give it all away.

Today,
that’s About to Change !

Consider This…

You’re at the bar and see that the bartender is giving free beer samples, but instead of tiny cups, you get a big mug and the license to drink as much as you want, as long as you want.

In this scenario, would you buy a beer? The answer is simple…

Of Course Not !

Why would you pay for something you could get for free, especially if you can fill up on delicious alcoholic beverages without worry? This is why you don’t find unlimited beer samples at the bar, and why you should reconsider giving your best content away for free…

On Another Blog !

If you write a complete guest post; something that just rocks their socks off, then what reason would they have to visit your blog? They’re already full on great content; they don’t need to click to read more because…

You’ve Given Them
All They Need !

What if instead the bar gave you a 4 ounce glass and told you you could have a sample of any beer you wanted, but just one. You take your little glass, drink your sample, and get your beak wet. Suddenly…

You’re Thirsty for More and
Buy a Beer !

Think about content the same way. Get someone’s beak wet. Give them a taste of your best stuff, but not the whole thing. Pique their curiosity, get them excited about what you have to offer, and then ask them to click to your blog in order to…

Get the Real Story !

This is how you write a guest post baby, and this is how you build an audience of people ready to devour your content. Think about it, and share your thoughts below.

Stay Curious,

You are right you don’t want to give away your best material otherwise you give them no reason to visit your site.

Here i have a point,
You just said that we can ask them to visit our blog in order to get more of some story which they have already got some idea about, well, my query is about “Will the blogger allow you to post a story which directly asks the visitor to go to a different blog? I think No. If someone does allow you, then will the visitor be interested in reaching out to your blog and reading the whole story out there? I know this might be a bit annoying for both of them, but this is something to think about. And also, what if you decided to guest post on a blog, which has a bit different niche and audience.. How would you control your content flow according to that blog? Let me know..

First of all, if you want visitors to come to your blog, you won’t find a different niche to guest post, if so that will be suicide, and though there are some people who does that and I’m not going to say is dumb, but surely they will never get any good results.
Secondly, you said “I think No”… well you should read Copyblogger’s Blog, if you do not know, you can search the word “Copyblogger” in Google and read some of those guest post and you will know the truth of what I said.

hi Wong, nice article. guest post make you brand if your guest post got more traffic and explorer than you become more popular in short of time. most of bloggers used guest posts as a backlink building but now a days this is the best method for self promotion.

Yes, I had to admit this is the best way to self-promote, but unless your content is worth, it is hardly to get popular even if your get a chance to guest post on popular blog.

I have not done a lot of guest posting yet, but I am planning on doing more. I will have to keep this in mind as I begin working on mine. My brother was talking about open loops in a post of his on Blog Engage. Sounds like this is along the same lines.

Thanks for sharing!

My brother probably explains it a little better than I could in his post on Blog Engage:

http://www.blogengage.com/story.php?title=how-to-create-content-that-drives-your-customers-into-a-feeding-frenzy-1

Essentially, though, it’s starting a loop that isn’t completed unless the reader takes some desired action.

Very interesting points, Wong. I had always assumed that the guest post should be as good as it gets in order to create the best impression of yourself on the new eyes that come upon it but you are very right about giving away your best content to other blogs too. I had never thought about that point. I am guessing that a less-established blogger is more likely to not think about that and just do the best he can in his guest blogs since not many people know him whereas more established bloggers will hold a few cards close to their chest when it comes to guest blogging.

Actually it doesn’t matter if you are new blogger or professional blogger, it always to practice only giving away a sample of the good stuff, not the whole but just a bit of it and then at the end ask if they want more they can find out at your blog. Remember practice makes perfect, though I do not want to say anyone is perfect even me, I’m not… but getting use to writing just only a good stuff is better.

Good point, but I am going to play devils advocate for a second. Let’s pretend for a second that you were not serving alcohol, but in fact a drug dealer. If you are going to try to attract “repeat business” are you going to give a way some of your inferior stuff to a first time customer?

Wouldn’t it be safe to say that the person who thought your stuff was inferior wouldn’t come back?

In the bar scenario you have, you have made a a massive oversite. The people are already in your bar. What if you are trying to open a bar in an extremely competitive market? Can you use the concept of “free beer” to bring people in to your bar. IF the only thing you have going for you is the free beer, you will fail. It all comes to understanding the life time value of a customer.

Finally, lets go with the overall concept, the blog. I would say I want to send my best material out there. You have the traffic, I want that traffic. Am I going to advertise/ guest post on your blog with inferior material? No way. I am not a one trick pony, and the internet is always evolving.

People don’t think, oh wait this is the best stuff he has why do I need to go to his blog. If I can consistently post highly captivating, thought provoking material on a consistent basis; people will come to my blog. It’s human nature to be curious. They thought process becomes, what is the material that is not being given away.

I think that most marketers thing this way. I want to hold on to my best stuff, and then when they visit/pay/etc I will give them the real goods. Ultimately, I have found that by getting them “addicted” to you content you generate a much higher ROI.

Well… why do you want to play devils advocate, when you said “good point” you know the world is always in chaos because of people like you who do not have anything to do but going to blogs crushing parties… go ahead and tell the world what I had just told you and hope the world will compensate you with the best possible answer.

This makes sense indeed. Small samples, not the whole thing. Of course. I haven’t thought of that. Not that I had written any guest posts yet, but it is good to keep in mind. Nice blog, cool theme, awesome “guy magnet” pistures. You are going to be very succesful :).

Thanks for the praise about successful. Anyway, you should start guest posting if humanly possible because by doing, you will learn faster as you progress you will get to know your mistakes and from there you will know how to really give a small sample of your best content and lure readers into your site.

With that being said, the challenge is writing a content that is just about right for a guest post. So before you even venture into guest blogging, know yourself as a writer a little better and work on honing your own voice/identity/style. So when you do guest blogging you can craftily manage to dole out a glimpse of what you are fully capable of.

I thought you were nuts at first when I read the title! But it makes sense after I finished reading it. Always leave em’ asking for more. That way they will want to come and see what you have to offer.

BTW – silly question. How would one guest post or ask for you to guest post on their blog?

Hi Wong,
Instead of the parable of the beer, I would say: When you’re on the beach and see a lot of girls completely naked, no bikini, it’s no fun; it takes away the fantasy excitement that we want to wonder how the good-looking girls look like without the bikini. You should always save some of the best things for later (to your own blog or to her bed).
