    Sure! The Main aim of this Thread is to Help members who have no idea "how to use List of blogs & get guest post published"

    Guest posting on blogs is a Excellent way to build brand recognition, establish yourself as a expert in your field, and drive traffic to your website.

    In this thread, I'll guide you step-by-step process of pitching a guest post to a blog.
    You can use this technique for pitching to any blog in any niche.


    • Step 1 : Decide your Niche.

    -- > Getting links on blogs that are totally irrelevant to your niche doesn't bring any targeted traffic!
    -- > Getting links on relevant niche blogs bring you targeted traffic.

    So the First Thing to consider - > Deciding your niche & Choosing your Niche blog


    • Step 2 : Choose Niche guest Blogs

    Choosing blog is simple, if you have List of guest blogs (already).

    There is no other way - You should have to check every site manually (whether blog is related to our industry or not)


    • Step 3 : Contact Guest bloggers

    Contacting guest blogger is little time taking process.

    There is no other way - you should have to email every blogger for guest posting via email or any other platforms

    • Step 4 : Create Unique article

    Even if you never plan to write a guest post,
    it's worth learning how to contact guest bloggers, How to outreach bloggers, how to make blogger to respond, etc etc..

    1. Lay the Right Foundations :

    You can find all kinds of excuses for not pitching a guest post. You don't have enough time. You're not sure your writing skills are up to scratch. It takes too much time to write a post when it might be rejected.

    I agree, rejection is tough. If you send in a pitch and you get no response, that's going to hurt. But you can minimize the chances of rejection by getting your pitch right.

    The key is in the preparation. If you lay the right foundations, you'll hit the jackpot more often than not. Instead of notching up rejections, you'll quickly find success, which will build your confidence and your writing portfolio.

    What's more, if you pitch well, there's no need to write an article before you pitch. Far better to write articles after they've been commissioned by a blog editor, so you know they will be published.

    These are just Samples.. Ideas..
    Not necessary to use the same thing..,

    This helps to Make your own short & pointed messages!


    Some Important Key Points :

    • Write your own short & pointed messages based on the Blog..
    Example :
    if the guest blog is "Pet Niche" you use the word "i've a client in pet niche or i've pet website...

    if you know guest blogger name is john, then use the name "hello john or Hi john or good day john

    This is best generalized version on guest posting. Great for newbies who still buy sites from marketplaces at crazy prices :)

    First, Understand the Nature of this Thread.
    Second, Read second point. This thread is for "one who have master list of guest blogs already & one who doesn't know how to do with the List"

    You have Part 1 List already & asked me for outreach template!

    I took my time & answered to your question in detailed with 10+ Samples.
    But your response to my effort is Less or Zero.

    So, What ?
    Have you read Later as you said ?
    Have you started outreaching the blogs in the list ?

    Moral : Self Education.
    Okay, Straight to the Point! I was about to write answer for the question here
    How do people get posts on Forbes and Huffington Post?

    I had a quick Second thought.
    As the Result of my Thought : back2form answers here..


    This could be done in Three ways

    1. ) If You're the Contributor, you can write article & submit your own article..
    2. ) If you have Relationship with the Contributor, you can contact to publish your article.

    If the above (1) & (2) not works for you, then
    • Buying from the Seller, who offer guest blogging service on Forbes, Huffington post.

    1. How to become Contributor ? Read Guidelines Here

    If your goal is to become a regular Forbes contributor, you can apply via Google Form.

    In addition to your contact information,
    you’ll also be asked for LinkedIn and Twitter profiles,
    and ideas about what you want your page to be.
    You’ll also need to link to examples of your writing and
    Explain why you’re qualified to have the page you envision.


    Now I became Contributor, Now What ?
    Follow these Five Step by Step process :


    Step One:
    Identify the section you wish to write for.

    Food
    Health
    Law / Attorney
    Pet care
    Home Improvement
    Finance
    Entertainment
    Business
    SEO
    Tech
    Food
    Fashion

    Or? There's dozens of topics.
    Pick one.

    Step Two:
    Write-up or go retrieve your best story. But make sure it's relevant to the beat you wish to write for. Want to write for the Taste section and wrote a really awesome food piece? Good! Go get that one handy. Make sure it's at least 1000 words. Something nice and meaty (see what I did there?).

    Step Three:
    find the appropriate editor for the section you wish to write for.

    Step Four:
    send out an email that details (briefly) who you are, why you're qualified to write about your given topic and of course, your best story. If you have original images that go with the story all the better. You've probably heard of AIDA (attention, interest, desire, action) format.

    Demonstrate :

    why you're qualified to write about the subject,
    what makes your stories different,


    Sum it up briefly and ultimately, you'll make it easy as pie for them to on board you because you'll be giving them all the information they need to make an informed decision.

    Step Five: Package all of the above together into a concise email and send away!

    If you don't hear back within a couple days, follow up one more time with something of value (i.e., "Just circling back around on the below. Also, here's another great story that I think the readers would love..." and send it.

    If you don't hear back a second time it's best to search out another editor for that column or pursue a different column altogether.



    The Fact :
    Getting Contributor Access on Top Sites, Isn't That Easy!

    The Reality :
    This is what you get, after submitting :)

    "We appreciate your interest in becoming a Forbes contributor.

    Unfortunately, due to the high volume of contributor applications, we are unable to respond to each writer. If interested we will contact you with further details and information."


    You will have to be wait be patiently like Months, Sometime years :) Therefore Number 2 Works Most of the Time.


    2. Relationship With Forbes Contributors,

    How to Contact contributor & how to make Relationship with them,

    If you get list of contributors contact, you get in relationship with them. So "List" act as a Biggest Secret,


    Okay, I'm breaking the secret 2% here..

    I'm naming out one contributor for Best Example.
    Josh Steimle, he has been working on forbes for long time.

    As I mentioned.,

    If the above (1) & (2) not works for you, then



      • Buying from the Seller, who offer guest blogging service on Forbes, Huffington post, etc







    Note : Not all the Contributors write for every niches, So you will need to find contributor who writes on your Niche.
