Get your blog featured on your favorite site
Make your blog posts go viral
Viral blog posts aren’t an accident. After carefully examining successful writing across the web, I’ve determined they have 7 key elements in them.
I got this question today:
“How do I get my blog post featured on my favorite site, like a guest post?”
I’ve used guest posting to grow my business in a huge way. I did it when I was starting out. I still do it today. I want to give you an exact script you can use. And I want to tell you about a student of mine who used it to generate over $30,000 from one guest post.
Before I dive into that, I want you to remember that popular sites love posting great content. If the writer of that popular site has built up an audience, then they feel a lot of pressure to write something.
So if you come along, show that you’ve done your research, pitch an amazing idea, and give them some proof that you’re a good writer, you’re not burdening them. In fact, they will love you, because you’re making their life easier.
Now for the actual pitch. The first step is to identify your audience. Sometimes people come to me and pitch articles about saving $0.10 on drying your clothes. I’m like, “Go to hell. I’m not going to post that. You didn’t do your research.”
But if somebody came to me and said, “Ramit, I used XYZ technique. It did amazing work for me. I negotiated my salary, I earn more.” Then I might be interested.
The second thing you want to do is reach out to them with a great email. So I’m going to show you a script:
The whole script is right here. Now, the beautiful part about this script is that there’s no pressure.
If they don’t like it, they don’t have to respond. No big deal. But I can tell you that if you’ve got some good ideas and if you can deliver, they will love it. This is one of the same scripts that I use to this day.
