I thought I would share a method about how I get free content written by others. It works in my niche and it might work in yours too. You can take what I do an put your own spin on it. I look for guest post writers on Facebook. 1) Sign up to as many groups in your niche as possible. The more the better. Do a facebook search for your keywords, associated keywords and anything that might be connected to your niche. 2) Filter the search to include only "groups". 3) Right click on all the results that interest you and open in new tab. Click on the name of the group not "join group". 4) Join all those groups. I joined 100 groups in less than 1 hour and FB didn't stop me. 5) When accepted go to the group, introduce yourself, make some rubbish about how you want to be a part of the community, share ideas, etc. Also write that you're looking for people to share their ideas/experiences/thoughts, etc on your blog post. Make sure that what your post doesn't contain a link to your website otherwise it might get flagged for spam, too many of these will get your account flagged up. Ask people to PM you if they are interested. Check your inbox and the "other" folder for replies. 6) Make small talk and ask them to write something. Out of the 100 groups I joined, I got about 50 leads for people who wanted to share something. It's not instant, but it's very little work to get people to write for you, and there's fresh content on my site while I'm writing the keyword researched posts that I want to rank. Give them some rules, at least 500 words, original unique content, few pictures, etc. You might need to give some of them a backlink to their blog, but I figured that doesn't matter because it's probably a link to an on-topic website/blog, but you can always make it nofollow if you're worried about that! Plus, after you've published the content, you ask them to share it, tell their friends, etc. I even get a few natural backlinks this way from other blogs where people write on their own blog that they are so excited to have been asked to write a guest blog, getting more visitors and even a backlink or two that is very natural in Google's eyes. Then go back to the group (if you remember which one) and share the guest post. This gets a few visitors, share & likes, etc. and also gets others interested in doing the same! I thought it might be helpful to some of you! It works for me and it might work for you too!
