Today’s guest blogger, Janet Barclay, shares her experience using guest bloggers and reminds us of a very big benefit of using guest bloggers - they know something we don’t…
Use Guest Bloggers for an Expanded Base of Knowledge
I have welcomed one or two guest bloggers per month on my blog, Your Organizing Business, since I started it in 2009. For the most part, they are members of my target market, often sharing their expertise about subjects that would not be a good fit for their own blogs.
Occasionally, my guests come from other industries, but the posts are always directly focused on my target market.
Guest bloggers have allowed me to provide my readers with valuable information over and above my own knowledge, without the need for me to devote time and energy to researching and writing the post.
My most recent guest blogger is an active user of social media with a loyal following, and because of this, her post generated a high number of comments and shares from people who were not previously aware of my blog.
