    Hello BHW,

    I am looking for the way to approach top blog owners, to post my articles, paid articles.

    Like say, if the search term is how to make money online, I want to approach or reach to those peoples whose websites comes by typing this search term.

    I know they are top bloggers, I can afford $$, but how do I approach them or convince them to put my articles on their website?

    If I didnt put the question in understandable manner, please let me know.

    Regards!

    Don't just jump straight in and ask, you have to build a relationship first. Comment on their site, email them and thank them for their work and maybe suggest new ideas. Get talking to them before asking for anything!!!

    What kind of $$? If $$ equals less than $100, your budget is way too low

    If a blog is number one on Google for a worthwhile keyword, they'll want to see some serious cash!

    Yes, you are right. Budget depends on the site rank and its popularity.

    Just offer cash. It really is that simple.

    Use a separate e-mail address for this and don't reveal the URL without an agreement.

    The reason to approach these owners is instant advertising of my article, right. Any other way to reach large number of audience without doing seo, or which takes a lot of time stuff..

    Check out Taboola.com. If you have a decent budget and a good strategy you can make your site popular in a couple of months. But you gotta have a plan or use someone who already had some great results.

    Compose an approach email stating your intentions and at the same time show them samples of your work by attaching one to your approach email or by simply adding a link that will direct them to the articles you've written.

    If you're a good writer and provide good insights through your written content, then I think there's no way they will ignore your wonderful offer.

    Like the above responses have suggested, the best way will be to craft an "approach" email that introduces yourself and tactfully highlights the general premise of your JV proposal. Keep brief and concise: four or five sentences, max. These site owners receive hundreds of propositions and will not invest more than a cursory glance into your email.

    Something like:


    "[SITE OWNER'S NAME HERE],

    My name is [NAME HERE], I have been regularly visiting your website for the past few months. Your articles are always fantastic reads; and I have to say, I am impressed by the consistent quality of your content. [NAME OF A SPECIFIC POST/ARTICLE] in particular really spurred me to reach out to you - I had never looked at [SOME SPECIFIC COMMENT ON THE ARTICLE] that way.

    As a professional [WRITER/MARKETER/ETC], I constantly research and identify the top [NICHE HERE] experts for potential collaborative projects. I just received some funding to invest in a new project and thus was wondering: would you be interested in working together on a small venture?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best, [NAME HERE]"


    Obviously change the wording around to more accurately reflect the specific niche/website. The first email you send should not mention any details about your proposal; you just want to perk her interest and open a communicative dialogue.

    You have to find the middle-ground between "direct approach" and "indirect approach". You need to let them know that you want to post on their website, but at the same time make it seem to them like it was their idea, and like you can actually provide​ something for them that they don't yet have.

    Usually bloggers have an "advertise" page where they list their packages, I've seen many blogging websites have "sponsored posts" or "guest posts" in which you can buy! Do some Google searches for the niche you're in and see if you can find those pages, if not just contact them if they offer that service. Good luck! :)
