7 Day guest bloggers' challenge
A challenge in just 7 days transformed into an online course designed to educate would-be guest bloggers how to successfully pitch to blog owners and authors and get accepted.
Why You Need To Do This Challenge
Ever tried to pitch your guest post ideas to blogs and been ignored?
Do you find the process of writing these pitching emails demoralising?
Would you like to write guest posts, but have no idea where to start?
Every day I get people pitching their ideas for guest posts. Many of these are truly awful!
Every day I wish these people had been taught how to pitch for guest blogging properly.
Every day I tell myself I really need to do something about this...
Here is my 7 Day Challenge which is extremely manageable, and will transform the process of pitching for guest blogging opportunities overnight!
What you will learn during this challenge
Search for suitable blogs in your niche. Think about who will be receiving your pitch. Consider whether your pitch is appropriate or relevant to the blog. Bear in mind the blog's audience.
Read through the posts or blog to understand it. What is its main subject, does it match your pitch, who is the author of the post and was their anything else you noticed about the post?
Check out the blog's comments. Consider the benefits of commenting rather than liking or sharing. Think carefully before writing, consider your audience, and begin a social relationship.
Engage with the blog's author by commenting on their other posts, find them on social media to do social listening before joining in the conversation and focus more on forming a social relationship.
Before you write your pitch, use the knowledge you've gained about the author and their blog, work on the recognition factor, and offer a choice of relevant titles with match the blog's subject.
Once you start writing, focus on providing value through sufficient research, match the writing style, be careful about using keywords and include a biography and picture of yourself.
After publication, now you promote your post. Remember to return to monitor engagement, on social media and the post, and keep socialising to maintain your new social relationships.

Frequently asked questions
No, of course you don't! I made it 7 days because people, especially would-be guest bloggers, are usually time-poor, and a week appears to be more manageable. You could, if you have an hour and a half to spare, listen to all the videos at once, but it might take you a bit longer to do all the suggestions they offer you. This is something which should be perfected over time anyway...
Before paying you will register to access the website. After paying you can access the course, but it would be a good idea to keep your login details safe for when you want to revisit the course. All the videos are accessible straight away, even though they are laid out within 7 days, so it is up to you how to decide to watch them.

No, if you are just starting out, this course is excellent for you. It will be much more difficult for those who have been pitching for guest blogging for a while, as they will have to change their mindset and way of thinking, and may find it hard to adapt. But for newbies this is just the ticket!
I suspect there are a lot of guest blogger pitchers who are working on behalf of a marketing or content writing agency. It is these who will be making the most mistakes, because they have been set tight deadlines and impossible goals. They will have their bosses breathing down their necks wanting immediate results. Whereas this course turns things on its head and asks you to form a social relationship with the blog's authors and owners first before pitching. This can take time, especially if you aren't used to socialising online, so will not be appreciated by those wanting a quick fix. If you are willing to go down the cultivating a warm approach, rather than the spray and pray cold method, then this course is for you.
