    Hi There,
    I'm looking for some Outreach/Guest posts/Press Releases at a reasonable price.
    Any suggestions out there? (I'm not looking for CNN quality links here for $250)

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    What is your objective? To build links? Most paid press releases here don't generate much traffic

    A) Be careful who you choose, read reviews.

    B) Make sure they give you a refund policy if the link drops. I've had a lot of this type of link get deleted by the website after X months. This applies to guest/outreach posts.

    C) Ask for at least writing samples to make sure the content is good. Post samples are better, but most don't offer that.

    Most 'outreach' services do nothing more than set up PBN sites so be careful

    This...

    Best way is to do it yourself if you have the time. 99% will try to scam you and the other 1% is hard to find.

    Agreed. When this happens people need to be insistent on a refund or else open a shit list. This BS needs to stop.

    I've used most on here and they're all the same really. Quite clear that there is no outreach done at all. Its a network, nothing more

    Same here, how they make it through mod review is puzzling.

    What you need is an assistant to do outreach on your (or your client's) behalf. They must have a system in place.

    Here is a good spreadsheet to find guest post options, and to track the backlinks gained.
    This is a document full of email templates to use to solicit guest post opportunities.

    I suggest you shadow the blog, its owners, and any writers it has on your top social media accounts i.e. facebook, twitter, pinterest, youtube, linkedin, google+ etc. I suggest MP2 for retweeting,favoriting, liking their posts. You will also want to comment on their blogs before asking to guest post to add weight, value and recency to your email.

    Obviously you will want to have content you can reference, to show you can add value, but with the resources I shared above, you should be able to hire an assistant at $3-$5 an hour to do this for you and get it all done, without having to worry about pbn link blogs etc.

    Also, if you want to have some examples of content for niche blogs to brag about besides your own blog or media mentions from Press Releases, I suggest looking at this list of paid links you can find from any forum, and apply to write content yourself (or client) on these sites, to build up a powerful portfolio.

    The "pbn's styled as outreach" are abundant here, I do agree.. but when you read the OPs copy from those threads you can tell right away it's a PBN. If you spot any services which are blatantly not selling what they're advertising, please do report them lads.

    I personally offer an outreach service here.. real outreach, so seeing this caught my eye. I would be more than happy to have you both try it out... you'll see that "they're all the same" is way off.

    May I test you out on this one then? However, I'm happy to do a test one. I'll check your threads

    My opinion, if you want something done correctly, do it yourself...
