3. Individual Rules Of Posting:
Every blog has it’s unique rules and regulations that you must thoroughly follow if you want to appear on the site. Make sure to read the instructions through and thorough before making the pitch.
4. Understand The Site
Its recommended that you study the website where you have planned to pitch a guest post. That’s because the purpose of the guest post will be to serve both your site and theirs. And it’s important that both interests are met.
5. Offer Something Unique:
Next, you will need to think about what sort of post should be on the site but hasn’t been written. Come up with something so unique, and exciting that the influencer to which the site belongs won’t be able to turn down your offers.

7. Mind The Bio:
After all that effort, it’s foolish to ignore the bio. You will need to write a smart bio and make sure that you convince people to click through and check out the link to your site or at least be interested in finding you.
8. Promote The Guest Post:
Even after they hit the publish button, your work is not over. Share and promote the post as much as you can.
9. Respond To Comments:
If the site you just guest posted is a popular one, you are bound to receive a comment, make sure to answer queries to the best of your abilities and thank people when they praise you. Interaction will further help your motive. Do not ignore this point.
10. Be In Touch:
Befriend the influencer, who knows what he/she can do to your business. You may be lucky enough to get him/her on-board as a mentor. Do not ignore the people with whom you have worked.
