I have already talked about various benefits from Guest Blogging such as Natural Growth and Exposure: Two Interconnected Benefits of Guest Blogging, get free content from Guest Posting, Guest Posts help in Reputation building of your website and Get an alarming hike in web traffic via Guest Blog Posting.
Today, I am discussing 5 ways to recruit guest bloggers/writers for your site:
1. Announce at forums and job boards. You can take the help of forums and job boards to recruit a guest blogger for your website.
Write a small thread stating the requirement of a guest blogger at your site. Mention your website’s link in the signature so that the bloggers can get an idea of the website before they approach you.
2. If you sell products, you can lure Guest bloggers by giving freebies in return.
3. Check the twitter accounts of the bloggers. There you will find the one that suits your requirement.
4. Use Firefox extension called Similar Web. This nifty tool helps in tracking similar websites over web. It may help you in finding the guest blogger.
5. Take the help of LinkedIn Recruiter to get a guest poster for your website.
Whatever method you choose, you really need to struggle hard to get a guest blogger in case your website is new.
