Don't believe Guest Blogging can help? Follow the data!
Every single blogger and every single successful online entrepreneur has used guest blogging at some point in their career. Here are a few examples.
Danny Iny - Firepole Marketing/Mirasee
Danny Iny is one of the most successful marketers who teaches course building and marketing. When he started Firepole Marketing (now rebranded to Mirasee) he turned to guest blogging and marketing - and wrote over 80 guest posts in just a couple of months. The turnout surprised even him, allowing him to build a million dollar business in a short amount of time with almost zero investment.
When he started, he was close to bankrupt - but due to his low-budget marketing tactic which consisted solely of guest blogging, he turned things around for himself.

The key to Danny's success was getting so many bloggers accept his guest posts in a short amount of time - in our course we'll teach you how to achieve the same!

John Jantsch – Marketing A Book Via Guest Posting
The success of a new book often strongly depends on whether you are able to give your book sales an initial push. There are multiple ways to achieve this initial push.
Some authors use their own email list and a limited period of time where they offer the book for free in exchange for a review on Amazon to get their new book into the Amazon Bestseller lists.
This gets even more effective when you combine it with guest blogging as John Jantsch did when he released his book „Duct Tape Selling — Think Like a Marketer, Sell Like a Superstar.“
John Jantsch wrote just 7 guest posts – not an overly large amount of posts. Using his connections, he managed to get the book on some of the major marketing blogs like Copyblogger, Brian Solis, Convince and Convert and others. In most cases, he simply mentioned the book in his author bio.
An optimized bio that John used for his guest posts.
Key to John's success was building relationships to a tight and committed circle of bloggers within his niche. In our guest blogging course we will teach you how!
Every single online entrepreneur uses guest posting - don't just take our word for it.
Here is what they have to say:
"…the SEO benefit for guest blogging isn’t from the obvious bio links, it’s from everything else that comes from being known ..." - SEO pioneer Craig Fifield
"The amazing thing about guest posting really is the amount of people you will meet through it. This means either in the comments of your posts or simply the relationship with the person owning the blog. ..." - Leo Widrich, Founder of Buffer
"My goal with guest posts is to create a blanket effect. Meaning that someone in my target market should see several tweets, read a couple of guest posts I’d written, and see my post on Hacker News." - Nathan Barry, Founder of Convertkit
"If your post gets a lot of traffic, social shares and comments, the blog owner will most likely accept guest posts from you again." - Neil Patel
"If you’re getting less than 250 website visitors a day, your priority should be writing for other people’s blogs, not your own. ..." - Rob Powell
Here is how Leo Widrich used guest blogging to get 100,000 customers for Buffer
Buffer is a well known social media scheduling app by now. It was founded by Leo Widrich as a small startup - back in 2010.
Over the course of 9 months, Leo wrote a total of 150 guest posts. This marketing tactic alone allowed him to generate 100.000 customers (there were various other sources for customers - but guest blogging was by far the most effective).
You might think, that Leo used some special marketing mojo (or money) to get this kind of success, but no - just like you, Buffer didn't have a lot of money available and marketing had to be cheap.
Guest blogging was the one marketing tactic that turned buffer into a million dollar business.
Now imagine what you could do with the same tool available to you!
"This information is perfect for me and I am doing my homework. You are really opening my eyes to what it means to be a marketer or social marketer."
- David Bibby, Entrepreneur
"Who are you and what DO YOU know about guest blogging?"
Hi, we're The Social Ms. Or in a more personal note, we are Jonathan and Susanna. Brother and sister.
And business partners - for almost 10 years now.
In short: Our story is it's own guest blogging success story. But let us tell you more!
10 years ago we started our first business. We were nobodies. No one knew what we were up to. We were based in Germany.
But we had an idea for an internet startup. Yes, the kind of fancy stuff you read about. Investors, parties, web traffic.
Well, the reality of a tech business is much more mundane then what you read about.
Few parties, and the invested money usually doesn't even pay the rent.
The company we started was called exploreB2B - it was a web platform like so many in those days. And we had to fight for attention. No one knew we existed - and remember what I told you about money?
We didn't have any marketing budget. We tried everything - and everything failed. PR failed - try to get a journalist to write about you when no one knows you. Advertising ate a lot of our money, but failed to provide the results we needed.
Just like other entrepreneurs we started to use guest blogging as our marketing strategy. Similar to what Leo Widrich did with Buffer, we started to write massive amounts of posts.
And that's when we started to turn things around for our business. After a couple of months we had 80.000 registered users, and 500.000 monthly pageviews.
Our marketing budget at that time was less then 200$ per month.
exploreB2B has disappeared since then - web startups come and go. But to this day we use guest blogging. By now we have published on many high profile marketing blogs, including Social Media Examiner, Jeff Bullas blog, and many more!
You can have the same success for your blog. Drive your business to insane growth!
