During my birthday on May 25 I got 99 mentions on Facebook.

Is this an example of the power of new media? If you are interested in this topic, I recommend you to read Amber Mac's book, Power Friending: Demystifying Social Media to Grow Your Business. [Nota Bene: Amazon affiliate link. If you want to support my blogging and read a great book at the same time, please click the link and purchase Amber Mac's book.]

How many friends do you have on Facebook? I am getting close to 1,000 (power) friends... What's your take on the Dunbar's number and the social media tool called, Path?

In the evening, I got social and had dinner at a Mexican restaurant together with three of my friends that I am doing business (according to the trader principle) with:

After the dinner I went to Café Hammock, listening to Elecro Swing (jazz) music.

3 Reasons Why your Small Business Should Utilize Guest Blogging

Don’t you think you think you need a guest blogger who’ll be responsible for building backlinks and churning out guest posts for your company on a regularly basis?

Tell me, how much do you think you’ll make if you could atleast, generate 30,000 visitors to your small business blog in the next 6 months?

As a small business owner, you’ve certainly heard about guest blogging, but why haven’t you utilized it in your business?

This post is not meant to criticize you in anyway, rather, it’s meant to make you realize how much you can achieve through guest blogging.

Let me tell you something you don’t know:

I started out online with no connection, traffic, and in debt and in the space of 4—8 months, I was able to build a blog that averages atleast, 400 visitors daily.

Guest blogging made it possible!

If you’re reading this content (as a small business owner) I’d assume you don’t know anything about guest blogging; right?

For the sake of the people just hearing about it for the first time, let me briefly explain:

Guest blogging is the process of writing quality content for another blog with backlinks to your site. It’s that simple!

Guest blogging is effectively and helpful in the sense that,

  1. It helps to drive traffic
  2. It helps to generate leads
  3. It helps in establishing a strong online visibility
  4. It establishes your expertise
  5. It makes you more money!

Having experienced the results of guest blogging in my business, I guarantee that you’d experience tremendous growth if you utilize it.

Having spent more than 2 years as a professional writer and blogger, I’m proud to tell you that utilizing guest blogging in my business was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Guest blogging alone, brought in over 5,000 visitors to my blog within the first 5 months!
Think about what 5,000 visitors can do to your business? Imagine only 500 among these 5,000 buys a product worth over $50, that’s a whopping $25,000!

I owe my business and financial stability to guest blogging; and that’s one of the major reasons why I decided to share this detailed post with you.

Are you ready to roll with me on a guest blogging adventure?

Let’s move on! ( just kidding)

It builds Your Email List

Imagine what it feels like to wake up one morning only to find out that over 200 people are subscribed to your email list. Guest blogging is a sure way to make that happen.

I’ve written guest posts that  added over 50 people to my email list and I’ve written ones that added over 90 subscribers within 24 hours! If you’re on a low advertising budget, then you should give guest blogging a try!

If you can write quality guest posts for top A list blogs, be assured that you have the capability to add more than 50 subscribers your email list.

I’m not saying this to convince you; no! I’m only telling you what has worked for my business. I’m a professional guest blogger, and I run a guest blogging service so I know what works and what doesn’t work

Guest blogging alone has brought in more than 20,000 visitors in the past 7 months; think about what 20,000 visitors can do for your business.

Think about how much profits you’ll pull in if you can drive just 20,000 visitors to your blog in five months!

Pro tip: be strategic; only contribute to top A list blogs; that’s what works!

Guest Blogging Will Build Your Search Authority

For the past 1 year, I’ve written and published over, 289 guest posts for both myself and clients. I’ve written guest posts that have brought in over 200 visitors in 24 hours and I’ve also written ones that has brought as low as 10 visitors.

In fact, some of my blog posts rank on the first results of the search engines.

Think about it; imagine what it feels like to rank for a competitive keyword in your niche?

Imagine how much profits you’d pull in

Pro tip: Guest blogging will improgve your SEO and build your domain authority if you go about it the right way.

Guest Blogging Builds a Raving Social Media Fan Base

Do you know that guest blogging can help you get up to 40 Twitter followers within 24 hours?

During my initial days as a guest blogger, I only had about 10 Twitter followers but when I started contributing quality guest posts to top blogs in my niche, I grew my Twitter fan base to over 200 in 2 months!

Pro tip: if you want to utilize guest blogging just to build a fan base, then include a link in your posts and encourage others to follow you!

I have now been blogging for 11 years and published 2705 posts. My intention is to continue to publish stuff on EGO blog for at least 11 more years..., but I must admit that I have been thinking of putting the blog on a temporary hiatus. One reason for taking a blog break is that during the years of blogging, I have been adding new blogs to my content creation portfolio. At the moment, I am publishing additional content at the following places:

It could be hard to update all the above mentioned blogs on a regular basis. I will ask my fellow bloggers and contributors to write guest posts now and then. You will soon be able to read posts by a new guest blogger, Daniel Adetunji of Infowland.

As I wrote in my post, ANNUAL BLOG REPORT X, the main thing for the future will still be my EGO podcast on BlogTalkRadio. I have an idea to start a new site focusing on new media broadcasts in contrast to the mainstream media stations out there.

Pajamas at the Gate

I am planning to contact Influads for facilitating sponsorships of my podcast show.

One For You, New England (The SSP)

What kind of stuff will I publish in the future? I will go back to the philosophical core of EGO and write more posts on epistemology (reason), ethics (egoism) and politics (laissez-faire capitalism), but I will also mix it up with funny cat meme material, due to the fact that "Internet is made of cats"...

Internet Is Made Of Cats

As an ending note, I want you to stay tuned for my new project, Please go to John Cox's post, Website Banner Commission, and read the comment thread and you will get "insider information" about the work of art.
