Howdy Julia and Ian!

Mark Orr

Afternoon good people smile

Nicole Osborne

Hey Mark, good to see you here!

Nicole Osborne

Hey saying hello. Julia spotted your post on LinkedIn!

Lisa D. Jenkins

Hello Nicole, I’m well, thank you. You?

Nicole Osborne

All well, enjoying my working from home day smile Where are you?

Mark Orr

Defo need a windows machine for live Ian…lol

Nicole Osborne

I thing guest blogging is great for reaching new audiences and nurturing relationships. I find ‘guest pod casting’ easier. But for SEO you cant beat blogs, right?

Dorien Morin-van Dam

I have a question. How can I get guest bloggers for a specific niche?

Nicole Osborne
Guest

Could you use #journorequest on Twitter?

Mark Orr
Guest

Great to see you hear Nicole :0

Nicole We had to come back to the US for bit, so I’m home in Idaho.

Nicole Osborne

It;s nice to be home in time for the festtive season?

Lisa D. Jenkins

It’s bittersweet. Settling in is harder than I thought it would be. I miss the UK and EU so much. But – Boise is beautiful so I’m focused on being grateful for that smile

Nicole Osborne

Lisa and you can always come back next year? We loved having you here! Yes settling back in after a period away is strange.

Nicole Osborne

Hello Julia!!! Nice to see u again smile

Nicole Osborne

I find sometimes with guest blogging its easier for imposter syndrome to kick in – too much time to think. But in 2019 I’;; continue with guest stints.

Love that ‘ building your tribe beyond your tribe’

On the publisher side, getting a quality guest post is much more difficult than it used to be.

Nicole Osborne

I agree you need to nurture relationships first. Social media works so well for this,

Nicole Osborne
Guest

That’s interesting I agree

Mark Orr
Guest

Do you guys feel the same for guest vlogging?

Nicole Osborne
Guest

Danke smile

Nicole Osborne
Guest

Mark Orr great question. I feel much more relaxed about guest vlogging than guest blogs. I wrote a blog for Andrew Pickering and Peter Gartland about my personal branding journey and it went through so many drafts. But I’m really glad I did it, it helped me find my voice and it’s fab for SEO. Also gave me social proof for my website.

Lisa D. Jenkins

LOL – did we break your site Julia? grin

Nicole Osborne

Hi Ian and Julia. Any tips on how to successfully pitch your guest blog? You can pitch a blog to a mag or website and, even though you think it’s a good subject, it may not be received as such and won’t be taken up. They get 100s of pitches every week, so how can you make yours stand out and be pitch perfect?

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Great question, Jonathan. I think it depends on the industry. For me, I get dozens and dozens of pitches each week. I am sorry to say that most of these just get deleted – but that’s because almost all of them do it wrong. They just automate it or don’t bother to do their research. I think you need to pitch in a genuine and non-automated way. Do your research and make sure that the blog you are pitching to write for is a good fit. I keep on getting pitched by a plumbing business which just isn’t a good… Read more »
