From dawn to dusk, guest posting has now seen all possible phases together.
If executed correctly guest posting can be one of the best ways to uplift your business or brand to minds of avid readers and increase your visibility and ranks on the web as well.
But, nowadays many of the guest posts are failing to reach the readers, ever thought what would be the reason behind this?
Here are a few points which are really the strong cause behind the failure of guest posts.
Be The Unique Maniac
Yeah, you heard it right, be a maniac.
What I believe is if you are doing some work in this rapidly growing world, then you must be really dedicated and crazy about your profession or work. In case you choose your domain content writing and specifically guest pitching then, be really set towards your work.
Stand out from the crowd to shine, that’s the mantra. Once you are into your job completely, trust me there is nothing to stop you.
So be the unique maniac who works with full dedication. In the world full of confusion, where people are finding it hard to decide what are they doing and what’s best for them, setting yourself towards a goal will help in all the possible ways.
Your work which was not reaching earlier to the readers will take a leap and things will start going your way.
Why not give a try?
Word Stock or Out of Stock
Many of the posts don’t reach people due to a lack of convincing skills, it may be due to grammatical errors or spelling mistakes.
But certainly gives a bad impression regarding your writing skills. You may have some great thoughts in your mind which are very unique and new, but still, if you aren’t able to convey it, then sorry to say that you will remain permanently out of stock from this industry.
What people need from you is a good way of presentation of whatever post you are making. Failing to do so won’t let you make your further posts reach people as it will create a negative image regarding your style of writing.
Remember, once people develop a thought about someone or something they stick to it. It takes a lot of time to build some good reputation as a content writer and that too as a good guest post pitcher.
So do make these things in your mind clear that there must not be any sort of grammatical or spelling errors in your writings so that your content reaches to readers effectively and with the same intensity with which you posted it.
Fake Profile But Really Fragile
This is the most common mistake that most of the writers do in order to get some work in the initial stage of their career or when they don’t have really any work.
Let me tell you, this is a very bad practice. Seeing your profile some may allow for the guest posting for one time, but if you fail to produce quality content, then the doors of opportunity will close there.
So never try to show something which you don’t possess. These type of people who are working for one time but are reducing the stats of a successful guest post due to their inefficiency.
Showing up something on the papers does not imply your real personality, it’s rather the work which gives you identity.
Quality of the content plays a vital role in making guest posting successful or unsuccessful. Definitely, a person with fake profile will be very fragile in reality.
So it reduces the quality of the content and also the outreach of the guest post made. Hence, it is advisable to take care of this measure.
Be Original Be in Demand
Most of the guest post pitches get rejected due to copy pasted contents.
The reasons for rejection of copy-pasted content are, it lowers the business opportunity of the website and links will not be obtained from there.
So the resource of the blog or website will simply go in vain if such guest posts are approved. The civilization has now come far across from Indus valley and we have tools to check plagiarism or copied contents.
So if caught in the act, you get rejected then and there.
Never try to indulge in such acts, this ends your opportunity. Even if some part of your content is genuinely yours, the part which you have copy pasted takes away the value of your original content as well.
So in order to make your work valued, don’t go for copy-paste mechanism ever. Be original and Be in Demand.
So finally a piece of advice for the writers over there, which is nothing but the main highlight of the above article;
Always produce good quality content.
Be Agile, Not Fragile.
Build up some word stocks and vocabulary.
Have some uniqueness in you to stand out in the crowd.
If you Fake, it’s your biggest Mistake.
These were just a few reasons for the failure of guest post reaching the readers.
In order to make it perfect, there must be some sort of introspection from a writer’s point of view.
