10 Top Tips for Pitching a Guest Post or Getting a Blogger to Review your Product

handshakeI get lots and lots of requests every day, via my contact form or email, to accept a guest blog post from somebody. I also get requests to accept books for review on my personal book review blog. Although I’ve written in more depth about being a good guest blogger, I think it’s worth putting down a few points here to help people get the most out of their pitch to get a genuine and useful guest post or review on a blogger’s website.

Because … I reject about 98% of requests for a guest post after the first email.

So, here are my Top 10 tips for pitching a guest post or getting a blogger to review your product

1. Before you even start, think about the relevance of the website you’re contacting.

I get so many queries that have nothing to do with my website in the slightest. Things like, “I love your [editing] website, would you accept an article on real estate in Texas?”

Now, on rejecting one of these a while ago, I had a back-and-forth with the pitcher. She was determined that I would benefit from having her totally non-relevant content, full of dodgy links, on my website. I ended up saying to her “No reputable website would take this as a guest post”. Her reply, “You’d be surprised, LOL”.

The thing is, Google is adjusting its search algorithms all the time. It already specifically works against backlinks (a link to your content on someone reputable’s website which ups your credibility in the “eyes” of the search engines) which are in lists of random links and content which is full of keywords but no useful content. In time, your link to your bead firm on a blog about wind farms will impress the search engines less and less.

You’ll get far more hits as a genuine person seeking to place guest posts on a website if you target appropriate and relevant hosts.

2. Give detail.

If I get a generic, one-line email asking for a guest post or review that doesn’t give me any other info, that’s going straight in the reject pile. You might get my standard email response if you’re lucky.

If’s fine to keep it short, but make sure there is some information in there.

3. Show you’re familiar with the target blog / review site

I am looking for you to  have actually read my blog and know a little bit about what I do. Just a mention of the URL isn’t enough: you can cut and paste that. I want to  know that you know what I do, who my readers are, what topics I cover.

4. Watch out for mail merges / cut and paste carefully.

I’m putting this here because without fail, emails requesting guest posts start with “I have been reading URL INSERTED for some time and love your content”. This doesn’t work so well as a hook if you re-use an email and include the incorrect blog title or URL!

5. State what you want to do.

The target will want to know what you want to do – send in a blog post, pitch some ideas, post them a sample. Put this clearly early on.

6. State what you want out of it.

If you want a book review, say so. If you want your website address included in a guest post you’ve written, say so. If you want to include links that you’ve promised your customer to get onto several reputable websites, also say so – because your target is likely to notice this further down the line and get a bit cross with you.

7. State what the target will get out of it.

State clearly the benefit for the target. Yes, they might be desperate for content – if you see they haven’t posted for a while, this is OK to mention. Will you be helping their readers, bringing a new but related audience to their blog? Tell them. One useful offer is to do a reciprocal guest post – i.e. you will host a post from your target on your website on a similar or related matter.

8. Show you know who your target’s audience is.

I want to know that you’ve thought about who this will reach. An example when pitching to me might be, “I would guess given your writing on dissertations that your audience includes students. This product helps students to bind their dissertations so might be useful to that part of your readership”.

9. Give links and reviews.

If you’ve got examples of your work or product on other websites or you can showcase your own writing on your own website, include links. If your product, book, etc. has been reviewed on other websites, include links.

10. Keep it simple, keep it correct.

If you’re pitching a guest post, make sure to write clearly and grammatically – a reputable blogger will not want to either edit your text for hours or hosts something of lower quality than the content they usually post up. If you’re pitching a product, make sure you are clear and knowledgeable and point to a well-designed and informative website. Will your target want to embarrass themselves pointing their readers to a terrible website?

A good example

This post was triggered  by two things – one, another request but with another company’s URL in the message – d’oh! The other was an excellent pitch from an author asking me to review her book. I’m going to go into specifics another day, but she included …

  • A greeting using my name and a farewell using hers
  • A note confirming that she had read my blog, mentioning something I’d talked about on it recently
  • Details of her book title and the fact she was asking me to review it
  • A few sentences about the book
  • A link to its sales page and a review by a reputable reviewer
  • A polite request to consider taking a review copy

And do you know what? I’ve got a review copy of that book sitting in my To Be Read pile right now.

In summary

If you’re serious about pitching your content or product to reputable websites where their presence can do you some good, make sure that you give your target blogger information about both what your pitching and your own credibility. I’m not saying that you will succeed every time, but your target blogger is more likely to read your email and consider your pitch if you do.

I hope you’ve found this article enjoyable and useful. If you have, please take a moment to share it using the sharing buttons below, and I always appreciate relevant comments!

Small business chat update – Stevie Maiden

Small business chat interview two mugsWelcome to another Small Business Update with Stevie Maiden from Maidens Fayre. We first met Stevie in June 2013, when she was busy running a small business Facebook group and building up her jams, chutneys and pickles business, and did an update in July 2014. At that point, this was her plan: “I’m hoping to start to supply tea rooms and restaurants who understand the value of a good, homemade product. I already have a few interested, but I won’t jinx it by saying who :] I’m hoping this will enable me to cut down on events, give me a set time to cook, and maybe give me a day to myself during the week. Sigh: I can always dream.” It’s really difficult to cut down when you’re self-employed and carve out that time for yourself, so let’s see how she’s been doing …

Hi again, Stevie! Are you where you thought you’d be when you looked forward a year ago?

I’m not quite where I wanted to be a year ago. I supply a couple of tea rooms and more shops, but I’m still eventing almost every weekend.

However, I now realise that this is where I do a lot of networking, so it’s probably for the best.

What has changed and what has stayed the same?

What has stayed the same? There are still not enough hours in the day! I’m working at least 6 days a week, although I try REALLY hard to take a day off. I rarely get a whole one.

My perspective has changed. I love my work and still really enjoy it. Although I have had to accept that a social life is out of the question right now.

What have you learned? What do you wish you’d known a year ago?

I have learned to take costings into account. I can no longer just make something because I want to. It needs to be cost effective. It’s made me a little bit sad.

I’ve also learned that the negative attention I was attracting last year doesn’t go away. In fact, the more successful you become. the more of a magnet you are for this kind of attention. You just have to put your big girl pants on and not get involved.

Any more hints and tips for people?

Hints & tips? When booking an event always ask about advertising what the footfall is expected to be etc. I run an online community called ‘The Second City Craft Group‘. We are always happy to try to answer any questions you may have about starting out. Also, be NICE to people. You may find you’re spending most weekends with the same people.

And … where do you see yourself and your business in a(nother) year’s time?

This time next year I hope to be making more effective use of my time.  Being your own boss IS fantastic, but it’s also completely exhausting. I also hope to be talking to you again!

I’m glad we ended on a positive there! It is hard work being your own boss; I’ve written lots on here about how to refine your client base and say no, but it’s hard when you rely on getting out there and selling to shops and on stalls – I’d welcome input from other people who do this and have some hints about how to make it work WITH your life instead of INSTEAD of your life!

You can find Stevie online on the Maidens Fayre Facebook page and get in touch with her there.

If you’ve enjoyed this interview, please see more small business chat, the index to all the interviewees, and information on how you can have your business featured (I have a full roster of interviewees now so am only taking on a very few new ones). If you’re considering setting up a new business or have recently done so, why not take a look at my books, all available now, in print and e-book formats, from a variety of sources.

Small business chat update – Suzi Zobair

Small business chat update – Suzi Zobair

Welcome to another Small Business Update – this time with Suzi Zobair of The Smart Bear Digital Consultancy, who joined us back in June 2014 for her first interview. At that point, she’d been going for just a year, being another person, like me, who started a business in her 30s. She was already doing well, with her website design and web optimisation services proving popular enough for her to start needing some admin support – and she was looking at getting that in place by now, saying at the time, The way things are going, in 12 months’ time I’ll probably need someone to help me – whether that’s subcontracting my admin/sales/PR or hire someone to be in-house. I’m reluctant to hire someone for the actual website-building as this is the part I love most, but if there’s more work than I can handle, I might have to source someone who has a similar style and ethos to my own!” It is very hard to know how to cope with the workload and work out whether to expand when you’re a one-person business – I went through the same process and decided to concentrate on the areas I enjoyed working in and stay small, as, like Suzi, my business is based around my own services. But it is a decision you have to make at some point, and Suzi had to make it earlier than many of my interviewees! So, how’s it going …?

Hi again, Suzi! Are you where you thought you’d be when you looked forward a year ago?

Yes, I am where I thought I’d be – I do need help with things like admin! I’m currently looking into either an apprentice or a freelance junior. I’ve also started working with a fabulous project manager from Assist Marketing.

What has changed and what has stayed the same?

The type of clients I’m getting has changed – it used to be small jobs (which I actually liked, as each day was different) but now, I get bigger/longer projects in. This might have had something to do with my mind-set changing. I no longer look eagerly for the next job and I’m not willing to take just anything. I prefer not to take jobs where they try to bargain over price, as I don’t feel they value my services.

I’ve also changed the services I offer – for example, due to changes in Google’s Algorithm, all of my websites are now responsive at no extra cost.

My website has changed, as well – I changed the URL to www.thesmartbear.co.uk (although the old URL redirects to this one, of course!) I’ve been trying to drop the ‘creative’ from Smart Bear Creative and be The Smart Bear Digital Consultancy but it’s stuck, I think!

What have you learned? What do you wish you’d known a year ago?

I wish I’d learnt to say no more but when bills need to be paid, it’s very hard to turn down work.

Any more hints and tips for people?

Learn to value your services – if you don’t value it, no one else will and you’ll be working for nought. Charge what you’re worth and you’ll attract the type of clients you want to work with.

And … where do you see yourself and your business in a(nother) year’s time?

In a year’s time, I definitely want to be in a position where I’m not as busy – either because I’m working less for the same money (i.e. working smarter) or I have some help.

It IS hard to say no (and I’ve written about that here), but it is important to get used to saying it. The way I’ve dealt with that is by having good, recommended people who I can pass prospects on to if I think they’ll be a good fit, helping the prospect, helping my colleague and making myself look good in the process. I do recommend this approach as it works very well. It’s also hard, as I said, to know how to grow your business – I do have some advice and case studies here if anyone reading is interested in that area at the moment. Best of luck to Suzi as she moves forward and I’m sure she’ll be where she plans to be this time next year!

You can find Suzi and Smart Bear Digital Consultancy online at www.thesmartbear.co.uk, and all of the relevant contact info can be found here. Suzi’s on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ too.

If you’ve enjoyed this interview, please see more small business chat, the index to all the interviewees, and information on how you can have your business featured (I have a full roster of interviewees now so am only taking on a very few new ones). If you’re considering setting up a new business or have recently done so, why not take a look at my books, all available now, in print and e-book formats, from a variety of sources.

How do I delete a Facebook group?

In this post we’re going to learn how to delete a Facebook Group. It’s the only way, and seems a bit weird to me – I spent ages looking for buttons to press and options to choose before finding out! So hopefully you will have found this article easily and I can help you do it more quickly!

For more basic information about using Facebook, see my article on Facebook for business.

Why might I want to delete a Facebook group?

The reason I wanted to do this is that I had a group based around a general election that there was no point keeping up with now. There are lots of reasons why you might want to delete a group, though – it might have got out of hand, you might not have time to run it, it might be time-dependent and out of date, like my one was.

If it’s a matter of not having enough time, consider making someone else the Admin for the group – you can see how to do that later on in this post, as well.

Note, you do have to be the owner or administrator of the group to delete it.

How do I delete a Facebook group?

To delete a Facebook group, you need to remove all of the members, then yourself. This makes the group go away.

In your group, locate its Members area:

Facebook group members area

Click on the Members link and here you are with your list of members:

remove member of facebook group

For each member, click on the cog under the member’s name and click Remove from Group. Note that this is where you can make them an Admin instead.

Facebook will ask you to confirm.

remove member from facebook group check

Do this for each member of the group.

Lastly, remove yourself from the group in the same way. You will get this confirmation message:

Facebook delete group

This is the same error message whether you’re just leaving the group or you’re the last to leave – just choose Leave Group.

The group should now disappear. If it doesn’t, your best bet is to contact Facebook. Click on the arrow marked here:

4 report a problem

… and select Report a Problem from the dropdown.

How do I remove a member from a Facebook group?

In this post we’re going to learn how to remove a member from a Facebook Group. For more basic information about using Facebook, see my article on Facebook for business.

Why might I want to remove someone from my Facebook group?

The most common reason is that they have been spamming your group or behaving in another way that’s not acceptable.

Sometimes, a group member might not be sure how to leave a group and might ask you to remove them.

How do I remove someone from my Facebook group?

Go into your group and look for the Members area:

Facebook group members area

Click on the Members link to get into the Members area:

remove member of facebook group

Click on the cog under the member’s name and choose Remove from Group.

Facebook will ask you to confirm. At this point, as you can see, you can also block them from joining or posting to the group again:

remove member from facebook group check

And they’ve gone!

Small business chat – Susannah Davda

Small business chat – Susannah Davda

Hello and welcome to a brand new Small Business Chat with Susannah Davda from The Shoe Consultant. We encountered each other through a tweeting hour organised by Enterprise Nation, who are great at supporting small businesses, and seeing as how we have a lot of business attitudes in common, we got talking and arranged for Susannah to become part of the interview series.

I’m not sure I’ve had an interviewee before who has taken the path Susannah has, starting off raising awareness by blogging and then moving into a full-time business, so that’s certainly an interesting way to do things and one we can all learn from. Authors are certainly advised to build a “platform” well in advance of launching their book, and it makes good business sense to hit the full-time life with lots of awareness and attention. Let’s see exactly how Susannah did it, and what her plans are for the next year …

Hello, Susannah! Thank you for joining us in the interview series. First of all, what’s your business called? When did you set it up?

Hi, Liz. My business is The Shoe Consultant Ltd. I started blogging as The Shoe Consultant in October 2011, and have been running the business full time since April this year.

What made you decide to set up your own business?

I wanted to help women to make better decisions about the footwear they buy. I also provide training and consultancy for footwear businesses. The mission of The Shoe Consultant Ltd is to promote shoes which are both beautiful and comfortable.

What made you decide to go into this particular business area?

I have 17 years of experience in the footwear industry, so it made sense to use all of this knowledge to start my own enterprise.

Had you run your own business before?

No, never, but it had been a dream for some time. I love working with other people, but I also have quite an independent streak.

How did you do it? Did you launch full-time, start off with a part-time or full-time job to keep you going … ?

I blogged anonymously as The Shoe Consultant for 3½ years whilst working full-time for a footwear brand. I saved enough money to support myself for a year before taking the leap to turn my hobby into a business.

What do you wish someone had told you before you started?

Give yourself time. Don’t expect every element of your business to take off from the start.

What would you go back and tell your newly entrepreneurial self?

Planning is all-important. Don’t panic and try to do everything at once. Divide your time wisely.

What do you wish you’d done differently?

I splurged on some very fancy business cards early on, which in retrospect was a bit extravagant for a start-up.

What are you glad you did?

Joined Enterprise Nation and attended lots of their events and courses. It’s important to meet other people in the same position as yourself, and each session always contains excellent information and advice.

What’s your top business tip?

Spend time on your LinkedIn profile, website and social media presence. Use these platforms to market your business rather than spending money on advertising in the early stages.

How has it gone since you started? Have you grown, diversified or stayed the same?

Since working on The Shoe Consultant Ltd full time, I began to focus on the comfortable and beautiful shoe mission rather than covering all women’s footwear. At the same time, I have expanded my range of services to include VIP shoe shopping trips, training, consultancy and guest speaking, in addition to the blogging and book writing I was doing before. Losing my anonymity and freeing up my time has enabled me to offer these additional elements.

Where do you see yourself and your business in a year’s time?

I’m excited to see which of my services take off and can be expanded upon, and which need to be altered or moved away from. My aim is to be able to take a salary from the business by this time next year.

OK, so I didn’t start off anonymously, but what we have in common is working hard and saving up before taking the plunge, doing some training first and being open to seeing which directions our business will take us, as well as using social media rather than paid advertising to do our marketing – so I hope Susannah has as good a time freelancing over the next five years as I have had! I have no idea where she’ll be next year, but with a super website and lots of ideas, plus great social media savvy, I’m sure it will be somewhere interesting!

You can find The Shoe Consultant online here: www.shoeconsultant.co.uk and on Twitter and email. She’s even co-written a book!

If you’ve enjoyed this interview, please see more small business chat, the index to all the interviewees, and information on how you can have your business featured (I have a full roster of interviewees now so am only taking on a very few new ones). If you’re considering setting up a new business or have recently done so, why not take a look at my books, all available now, in print and e-book formats, from a variety of sources.

What to do in 6 common freelance crisis situations

To do listsOh, the freelance life is one that’s full of peaks and troughs, feasts and famines. I’ve already written about how to avoid running out of work and how to avoid overwhelm, and in this article I’m going to run through some common crises and my top tips on how best to cope with them.

I’ve been through all of these in my time … I’d love to know if you have more coping ideas, so please pop a comment at the end if you’ve got something to add!

Notehere are a few links in this article – all of them are to other content that I’ve posted on this blog, so you can click through safely and happily for more information.

What do I do when I’ve got no work to do?

If you’ve got no work to do – don’t panic! It will probably be temporary

What can I do now?

  • Take a deep breath and embrace the fact that you’ve got some down time
  • Make a list of admin tasks you’ve always meant to do
  • Do some brainstorming on some job searching you can do, whether that’s networking, looking for some jobs on Twitter or joining some free sites (see more on how to find freelance jobs in this article)
  • Spend a third of your time doing admin, a third marketing yourself and a third taking a little time to do some things for yourself

What can I do to stop this happening?

  • Consider new avenues of work – diversify
  • Let people know you’re available – including customers you’ve worked with before
  • Keep a note of the ups and downs in your business – if they follow a nice predictable yearly cycle, you can plan holidays and downtime for the low points and hard work for the high points

Tips to avoid running out of work can be found in this article.

What do I do when I’ve got too much work?

Having too much work can be a bit scary. Again, don’t panic. Make lists, be super-organised – you CAN do it!

What can I do now?

  • Don’t panic – take a deep breath and plan instead of panicking
  • Write a list of the tasks you have, their due dates and how long you think they’ll take (better, draw them out on a Gantt chart or calendar)
  • Make a priority list – what must be done first?
  • If you really CANNOT do it all …
    • See if you can rearrange any deadlines
    • See if you can get a colleague to take on any of the tasks
  • Work through your jobs in priority order

Tips on what to do when you’ve got too much work can be found in this article.

What can I do to stop this happening?

  • Find a colleague to work with and make an arrangement to cover each other’s work
  • Look through your client list and see if there are any clients who make your schedule difficult – then see if you can work things out or pass them on to someone else
  • Learn to say no!

What do I do when I’ve made a mistake?

We all make mistakes. All of us. Just the other day, I didn’t pick up on a duplicated word in a text. Most clients should understand that little mistakes come with the territory. Big mistakes need a big apology.

What can I do now?

  • Own up and accept responsibility – don’t fudge or blame other people or things
  • If there IS a reason (e.g. your sewing machine broke or you ran out of thread; your computer crashed and you lost a chunk of the spreadsheet) explain it briefly
  • Offer to make it right – whether that’s doing the work again or reimbursing / not charging your client (see the section below, though)
  • Explain concisely how you will prevent that mistake happening again
  • Forgive yourself and try to move on – better to admit a mistake, redress it and move on and give that customer a chance to forgive you than to hide it all, dwell on it and get in a state

What can I do to stop this happening?

  • If you know what caused the mistake, make a wholehearted attempt to remove that cause from your work life
  • If it was human error down to tiredness / lack of a cuppa / bringing a bad mood from your home life to your work, make a wholehearted attempt to recognise that and work to avoid it in future
  • Accept that everyone does make mistakes sometimes, and move on

What can I do when the customer doesn’t like what I’ve done?

This usually happens with the more creative industries like writing or making craft items for people. It’s a tricky one, but these points might help.

What can I do now?

  • Ask the client for as many details as you can – it might be a minor point that they don’t like
  • Offer to redress the issues – if it’s something I’ve written, I will do a rewrite (although see below, this is included in my Terms and Conditions)
  • If the client has already paid, offer a refund unless this is discussed in your terms and conditions
  • Personally, I’d say the client is always right and apologise / refund / replace graciously as this gives a much better impression than messing them around

What can I do to stop this happening?

  • Make sure that your Terms and Conditions cover this eventuality
  • Firm up the way you do the initial discussion with the client – can you use a tick-sheet or prepare a sketch that they agree on before you start working?
  • You could include x number of rewrites / alterations in your Ts and Cs if you offer graphic design or writing, for example
  • If you make craft items, you could send a photograph of the completed item before sending it off and taking payment
  • Build up a library of items that you’ve made or created so your customer has more to work from when telling you what they want

What do I do when I’m going to miss a deadline?

Everyone misses a deadline every now and again. It’s horrible and sick-feeling inducing, but sometimes things are beyond our control. If there is a genuine emergency, your clients will understand. If it’s down to too much work, also have a look at the section above on that topic.

What can I do now?

  • Be honest and contact your client as soon as possible – this is easier if it’s a sudden emergency than if you’ve got behind
  • Offer an alternative deadline or colleague who can do the work (don’t just send the work to a colleague – do it openly and keep the client informed)
  • Apologise and explain how it won’t happen again very briefly – allow your client time to reschedule the work

What can I do to stop this happening?

  • If it’s down to overwork, review the section on how to cope with too much work above – if you’re missing deadlines and nothing’s actually wrong with you, that’s too much work
  • Cultivate good and honest relationships with regular clients – that way, they’ll stand by you if you have a sudden illness or emergency
  • Enlist a colleague to cover your work if you’re taken ill or otherwise occupied (this is good practice anyway)

You can read more about what happens when you have to cancel a job in this article, which I wrote just after I experienced a sudden and temporarily debilitating bout of flu.

What can I do when it’s All Too Much?

You know what? Sometimes it is just All Too Much running your own business, being freelance. Sometimes you’re in a bad mood, there’s a fly in the room, all your customers seem to loathe you or have impossible demands and you’re finding it all boring. You’ve probably got a cold, too. Is that you?

What can I do now?

  • Stop – if you can possibly stop – stop
  • Even if it’s for half an hour or ten minutes, do one of these things:
    • Go outside and walk around
    • Do some brisk walking or vigorous exercise
    • Read your book
    • Have a bath
    • Phone a friend
    • Rant and rave IN PRIVATE for example with a friend on Facebook messenger or in a private group you might have set up for that purpose
    • Another thing that you like to do that centres and calms you
  • If you only have 10 minutes to deal with hating your life right now, step away from your desk / workbench / stall and do some calm, deep breathing, imagine your happy place, centre yourself and relax
  • Give yourself a little treat
  • Try not to discuss this in public or anywhere where your customers might be – you never know who might be looking, and who might have been just about to book your services

What can I do to stop this happening?

  • Learn to say no so you don’t get overwhelmed
  • Take regular breaks during the day AND regular days off
  • Don’t work late into every evening and over every weekend
  • Have a serious think about how you can redress your work-life balance, because that’s what this is all about – then do it
  • Cultivate a group of like-minded business people or people in your area of work or geographical area and talk to them – you’d be surprised to find that everyone feels like this sometimes

I hope these ideas will help you when you have one of these common crises. Why not bookmark this article or select your most common crisis, print it out and pop it on your noticeboard!
