Guest Blogging has recently come around as a new technique for communicating with other bloggers and getting your word out there! This is the most important aspect of Guest Blogging! Now the reason that using your social media profiles is so important is because, they allow you to get better outreach!
Most Guest Blogs usually offer you a Social Media link, and who cares if it is No Follow, that’s not what it is there for! What you need to remember is that when someone recognises your name from a series of advanced posts, it is always a good idea to link to a Twitter, Sphinn, Facebook or Linkedin account! Interestingly, this was something that I was horribly bad at doing and I generally linked back to our site or to a clients, which although was a nice benefit, didn’t really supply me with all that much.
So I used my Twitter account, and only once… The first time I used it on my name in a post I got published on a relatively popular blog; I received a bunch of followers! However you also have the issue that you can only realistically link to one of your social media accounts, so which one should it be? If you use you Twitter account at least you get the chance to coax in a potential follower! The only disadvantage is that this is all they get… Could you provide another Social media account that can give you and your readers more to use!
Linkedin is one of my personal favourites (even though I use a Twitter one here) because it could also be a way for you to gain business! Twitter gives people the chance to read your work, but Linkedin gives you the chance to tell everyone all of your social media accounts and gives them the opportunity to see all your work. What better way to get business, get read and find more opporunities that n through guest blogging?
