When done right, a guest post service will help you achieve either one or all of these three things:
- Increase your organic traffic.
- Build quality backlinks back to your website
- Position you as an authority in your industry.
When you submit quality guest articles to other blogs in your niche and they link back to your blog, your brand reputation and rankings will increase on search engines.
In other words, guest blogging is one of the safer ways to build backlinks and increase organic traffic to your website.
A quick illustration.
- Who do you trust more: Beyonce Knowles or Bolu Phil?
Beyonce does it for me. Not because I like her music (sorry Beyonce) but because her brand authority in the music industry.
- Which of these cars do you prefer: Toyota or Veem?
I know only Toyota. Never heard of Veem.
- Who is the best football player: Lionel Messi or Shiffi?
Lionel Messi because I’ve seen him play. I don’t know Shiffi.
You get the point.
That is exactly what a quality guest posts will do to your online brand — exposure and recognition. And then more money.
Guest blogging means more trust. More traffic. More backlinks. More revenue.
Guest blogging or guest posting as a service?
You’ve several options when it comes to guest blogging.
You can either do it yourself or outsource the entire process to a professional.
Both ways are recommended. The only constants here are time and money.
You can go the former way if you have enough time but no money. You might even want to do it just for the experience.
Or you can outsource it to a professional who will take the stress off you.
There are several shady and spammy guest blogging services out there with promises of getting you more organic traffic and increasing your conversion rates, but they will all end up affecting the overall health of your blog or website.
The reason is that Google is constantly releasing security and SEO updates to block these loopholes, also called Black Hat SEO practices.
Most times, these black hat strategies are dead cheap and easy to get.
Black hat strategies have ridiculously low prices.
But, always remember that if the price seems too good to be true, then you need to be extra careful not to lose your online business and web assets to Google penalties and hackers.
Getting links on private blog networks (PBNs) is not the same as a guest post service.
PBNs are not real blogs and links from them will eventually hurt your site and reputation. That is why they have low prices.
Quality and strategic guest posts on real blogs are the easy way to get strong and natural backlinks for your web properties e.g. blogs and websites. This strategy is known as White Hat SEO.
The strategy is simple but can be time consuming and expensive. It goes like this:
- Identify blogs and publications that accepts guest posts.
- Build a genuine relationship with them based on mutual respect.
- Pitch them your article idea which must be in line with their content and audience.
- Follow up and get accepted.
- Submit your articles with NATURAL backlinks to your website or blog.
- Article gets published.
- Rinse and repeat.
It is strictly based on an existing relationship that is mutual.
In some cases, the guest bloggers are contributors on these publications.
Is $500 too high for a guest post service?
For a typical guest post service, charges are based several factors like content, writer’s experience, outreach, quality of blog, social proof and other metrics that will be agreed on.
You need to realize that the guest blogger will (most likely) not be paying the target blog for a guest post.
The amount you pay for a guest post service will determine the quality you get.
Using myself as an example, as a professional writer, my articles have appeared in the Huffington Post, Thrive Global, Addicted2Success, The Good Men Project and other publications online.
I charge my clients on a case by case basis depending on their current needs for their business.
My average rate is $500 per 1000 words article that is published.
If I were to publish a quality guest post, you can expect that I’d charge no less than $200 for a really great post.
And that is my lowest price at the moment.
Moving on, here is what you will get when you pay for my $150 high quality guest post service:
- An 800 to 1000 words article published in a blog in your niche or closely related to your niche. The higher the number of words, the higher the price.
- Domain authority (DA) must be at least 20. The higher the DA, the higher the price.
- Blogs with real traffic as reported by SEMRush and Ahrefs.
- Backlinks will be editorial links (within the content). Google prefers these links.
- Images are provided within the content.
I’ll handle all the hard work including outreach, and correspondence with webmasters to get you published on an authority blog.
All you need to do is to provide your URL(s) and keyword(s), then I’ll handle the rest.
It takes approximately one to eight weeks to complete a guest post service depending on the level of difficulty of the campaign.
In most cases, we should be done within two weeks of the campaign.
If you want to take your business to the next level with quality guest post service, I’m just an email away.
