You contribute an article (or an interview) on another site, and get the benefit of creating backlinks to your own site. For example, last week, I featured a guest blog on my site, which you can see here: https://webstoresltd.com/2019/03/04/seo-factors-are-constantly-changing/. This blog post was written 100% by someone else, which meant that I didn’t have to come up with fresh content, and they got the benefit of creating links back to their website – a win/win situation. If you are interested in guest blogging on this site, we have limited opportunities available. Send us a message about how the topic you have in mind (such as how you handle shipping issues, or how you manage inventory, or what marketing methods are working for you – something that might be of interest to our readers), and we’ll feature you in our blog and help you get some extra SEO juice! The same is true if you’d like to appear on our 20 Minutes of Influence podcast. Reach out to us and let’s get you published!
