I haven’t posted on this blog in almost five years. Over the past year, I’ve made only $10 through Google AdSense. To see whether regular blog posting actually matters, I’m going to do an experiment. I’m going to commit to posting to this blog once a day for the next year. I’m also going to familiarize myself a little bit more with guest posting by allowing people to guest post on my site. I’ve heard you can really boost SERP results and profits through guest posting.
If you want to guest post on my site, please make sure your content relates to one of the topics in the list below. Also, your content must be free of grammar (no serial commas) and spelling mistakes, factually correct and not published elsewhere on the internet.
Here are the five different topics that experts say will be most profitable in 2023:
Send the content to email@example.com with MAKEMONEY in the subject line, or click here and submit the content via an inquiry form. I’ll respond within 48 hours to update you on my publishing schedule. Also, feel free to ask me for a piece of free content that you can publish on your own site, allowing us to both link back and forth to one another.
Let’s find out if the experts are correct. For today’s post, we’re going to look at five ways guest posting can make you and me money, as well as how guest posting works and how much it costs.
Why Is Guest Posting So Important?
To create a blog, you must have content. The more content you have, the more likely it is that the audience will find valuable insights and takeaways, leading to increased engagement and revenue from clicks on links and ads.
Do you know how long it takes to create a 500-word blog post? About 1 hour and 20 minutes to 2.5 hours.
Crafting a compelling 500-word blog post requires a writer to dedicate approximately 30 minutes to an hour to conduct thorough research. Once the research is complete, the writer invests an additional 30 to 60 minutes in composing the new content. Finally, the writer spends an additional 20 to 30 minutes meticulously editing and refining the post into a polished final draft.
Because it takes so long to create content that actually drives results, many people find creating content time-consuming and monotonous. For those who aren’t good writers, creating content can even become overwhelming. If you don’t enjoy writing, have little SEO experience or require multiple posts in a day, outsourcing the content creation process may be necessary.
This is where guest posting comes in and saves the day!
With guest posting, you don’t have to create content. You let people create the content for you and then publish it on your site as a guest post. The only usual requirement that guest posters have is to link back to their website. Most of the time, though, these links come embedded within the content they provide to you for you to publish on your site.
How Much Does Guest Posting Cost?
You can let people guest post on your site for free! This no-cost method for acquiring content makes your blog more enjoyable, increases website traffic and increases click-through rates.
Not everyone, though, is going to give you content for free, especially those who already have a website with high domain authority (DA). If you have the funds to pay for guest posts, you can use the guide below to help you establish a budget:
• 20+ DA: $30 - $100 per post
• 30+ DA: $100 - $550 per post
• 40+ DA: $550 - $15,000 per post
Remember, publishing guest post content from websites with a high DA makes it easier and faster to boost traffic to your site and increase your money-making potential. This doesn’t mean you can’t increase traffic with content from websites with lower DAs; it will just take longer to achieve higher traffic.
5 Ways Guest Posting Makes Money
Monetize each post on your site and start generating income today. Maximize your blog's earning potential with these five proven methods.
1. Attract Affiliate Traffic
For every guest post you publish on your blog (as well as all other posts), make sure to add affiliate links. Let’s say Bob from Bob’s Builders sent you content to publish as a guest post on your site. The content will, of course, include a link back to Bob’s Builders’ website, but you can also add relevant affiliate links to the content. If someone clicks on the affiliate link and makes a purchase, you’ll earn money. The Amazon Affiliate Program is an excellent place to get free affiliate links that you can make money from.
2. Use Google AdSense
Making money through your blog is all about diversifying and getting as many eggs in your basket as possible. One of those eggs should be Google AdSense. AdSense isn’t going to make you rich, but it’s a free ad platform that integrates well with almost any site and is definitely worth adding to your website. When your blog starts attracting 25,000 visitors a month, you can start exploring other ad platforms.
3. Unlock Referral Rewards
In addition to affiliate links, you can add referral links to all guest posts to generate more money. Just make sure any referral links you embed are relevant to the content being discussed. For example, if the guest post content focuses on traveling, you don’t want to include a referral link to a mattress store. Instead, you should use one that relates to a travel website or travel products.
4. Sell Paid Courses
Selling courses is one of the easiest ways to make money online, and you can include a link to your paid courses in the guest posts you publish on your site. Think about it. Do you have a special experience or skill set that others can use to make money? You can write down this special experience or skill in the form of a writing course and then sell it to people. Imagine selling a $3.99 course to 1,000 people. That’s $3,990. I’m going to create my own course on the top 10 places I have made money online and sell it for $10. I’ll update this blog post in the future to give you a link to the course.
5. Spread Brand Awareness
The final proven method we’ll explore that can help make money through blog posting comes from spreading brand awareness. The more you share and the more accessible you make your blog, the more people will read it, and the more people will click on any embedded ads and links. Spreading brand awareness about your blog is easy, especially when you start guest posting on other people’s sites and include backlinks to your site.
Any time you create content to serve as a guest post on someone else's website, make sure to adhere to the following tips; these tips will maximize the monetary value of the content:

You already know it's important to generate leads. Let's explore three content marketing tactics that not only generate leads but appeal to all generations.
1. Be as Visual as Possible
We live in a society that prefers images and videos over text-only content. One reason that consumers prefer visual content is because the brain can process it 60,000 times faster than text.
From a lead generation standpoint, visual content should be a top priority. Did you know consumers only remember 10 percent of what they read when it comes in a text-only format? They can recall a mind-boggling 65 percent of what they view in a visual format, though, such as a picture with a caption statement.
Fortunately, visual content comes in a wide variety of formats. For example, adding social proof to your site in the form of logos is a great way to visually connect with site visitors.
How can you do this? You will start by writing down all the social media sites that you have profiles on. Next, you will write down the various sites your products or services have been featured on, such as CNN, Discovery Channel, Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, etc.
At the bottom of every page on your site, logos for these platforms and companies should be displayed. Linked to each logo should be a URL that takes visitors to your social media profiles or the company website page you are featured on. Adding social proof to your site can increase lead generation and conversions by 400%.
2. Powering a Lead Generation Campaign With Infographics
Consumers love learning interesting facts, and infographics provide an effective way to engage with them. More so, infographics can fuel a lead-generation campaign. You'll want to share these infographics across all of your social media profiles. By clicking on the infographic, your social media followers will be directed to your site.
If your website doesn't have a subscription feature, you need to create one. The goal is to get as many site visitors as possible to give you their email address. Once they submit their email address, you can automatically add them to your lead generation funnel.
Getting site visitors to engage with your subscription feature can sometimes be a bit tricky. Infographics can serve as a viable solution to this problem.
One method for using infographics to increase lead generation is by enticing site visitors to give you their email address in exchange for another free infographic; a free infographic serves as a very effective lead magnet. You'll be surprised at how many people are willing to give out their email addresses for something free.
Once you have your leads' email addresses, you can continue to use infographics to push them through the lead generation funnel. For example, the emails that you send to your leads can contain more infographic material.
Embedded in the infographics should be a link to your landing page; this increases click-through rates and directs your leads back to your site, possibly ready to make a purchase. Once you get them to your site, you'll want to continue engaging them with more visual content.
3. Knowing How to Generate Leads With Various Forms of Visual Content
Your blog is an excellent platform to generate leads. Studies have shown that websites with blogs attract 67% more leads than sites without a blog. The key here is to blog on a regular and frequent basis and to use visual content in your postings.
The best types of visual content to include in blog postings vary from one business to another. Generally, though, effective forms of visual content that you should experiment with to determine what works best for generating leads include:

OK, first of all, before we dive deep into this posting, let's clear one thing up. I've only been at this whole freelancing thing for about 3 1/2 years. By no means do I consider myself a veteran.
On the other hand, through the experience that I have obtained, I do consider myself to be a writer who can fully meet the needs of my clients in terms of producing content when my clients clearly explain to me what their content needs are.
To put it simply, if you are in need of content, I can produce it for you. If I feel that I will have trouble creating it for you, I will happily outsource it to one of my highly-qualified connections who has much experience in creating the exact type of content that you are in need of.
Now, onto the good stuff. I want to discuss two different sites that provide content: Writer Access and Blogmutt.
In my opinion, Blogmutt is a JOKE! When you outsource content through Blogmutt, you don't know if you're receiving content from a person who has absolutely ZERO experience in creating content or a person who has twenty plus years of experience in producing content.
Not only that, but you have to sift through content that is produced by any number of writers, meaning you reduce your productivity time because you have to weed out the bad content from the good. Now, on the upside, you only have to accept and pay for content that pleases you (but the same applies to the content that you receive through Writer Access).
In fact, when you outsource content through Writer Access, you can rest assured that you are receiving content from someone who has much experience in creating content. Better yet, you can handpick your writer, meaning you know from the get go that the content you receive is coming from a writer who has the exact kind of experience that you're going after.
Don't get me wrong. From a writer's perspective, Blogmutt is the DREAM site. A writer with no experience at all can gain a bit of experience in producing content for clients, and possibly, just maybe, he or she might be compensated for the content that is produced.
NEVER would I want to brag, though, that I produce content for Blogmutt. This site charges clients $89 a month for a minimal number of blog posts that come from writers who may or may not have experience in creating content.
Writer Access, on the other hand, screens its writers (and constantly reviews them) and provides high-quality content for each and every blog posting at a much lower rate than Blogmutt. In fact, Blogmutt charges about $20 for a 300-word blog posting, while Writer Access charges anywhere from $5 to $50 for a blog posting that will come from a writer who has many years of experience in creating content.
All in all, my point of this posting is that if you are in need of content and you're deciding between outsourcing the content between Blogmutt or Writer Access, then Writer Access is the WAY TO GO!
Better yet, if you decide to outsource your content through me, you can bypass any type of outsourcing fee. If, however, you would like to take advantage of Writer Access, you can hire me through the Writer Access platform by clicking on this link.
