Want to Build Your Platform while Helping Others? Try Guest Writing!

We all know there are multiple benefits of learning new things, but one of the most important reasons is that sharpening your brain keeps you healthy, mentally and physically! During the pandemic, we’ve all had many opportunities to learn and grow through webinars, reading (of course), and hands-on training. I’m grateful for those who’ve shared their knowledge through these avenues. If you’ve ever spent hours, days, weeks, or even months learning a new skill or process, you know it can be daunting, to say the least.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a “Best Practices” buddy—a writing and publishing exchange where you can share what you’ve learned with others?

Good news is we do—each other! Authors can be the most beneficial resource for other authors, be it new authors looking to soak up every bit of information available to improve their craft, to those with a few books under their belts just looking to streamline some of their processes and stay updated in this ever-changing literary world.

What does this have to do with building your platform? There are many reasons, but two of the key considerations are:

  • Sales. The best reason of all is sales. Obviously, your end goal as authors is to sell more books. Exploring different avenues of “getting yourself out there” has the potential to increase your book sales.
  • Brand Awareness. One way to increase awareness of your books is through link-building. Every time you guest post on another website or blog, you create external links to your site, which is excellent for SEO.

Want to Share Your Experience with Others? We’ll Print Your Article!

The editorial section of our newsletter is open to guest writers with the goal of sharing your knowledge and building your platform. If you have tips you’d like to share with your fellow authors, bloggers and/or readers, we’d love to feature your work. Not only will you be imparting your wisdom with your peers, but you’ll also have the opportunity to promote your book/website in the process.
