Hello, I’m X from small company Y and I’d like you to blog from us. Of course, you wouldn’t get a penny. But, we will promote your content on our channels and offer you a discount on our products.
This is a request I received last week.
At first I thought: What the heck?! Do you think I’ll spend hours gathering content and then writing down a quality post for you, just for some more visits on my website? And since you are a small company, I guess you have only just a few, nothing which would explode my Google Analytics dashboard. I’d be basically volunteering for your company…
But then, I thought: Ok, why not, guest blogging is always nice, backlinks are the juice of the web. And maybe I could just “rewrite” some of my articles and post them. Just enough for Google not noticing it is duplicate content. I guess it will be fast earned visits without too much effort? And this offer for the product ain’t that bad, because it is something I need at the moment.
I can’t set my mind on this, what do you think bloggers?
