Those sites pay you a huge amount of Blog, so it is pretty sure that they receive thousands of Applications daily. To stand out among those thousand, I will walk you through some small guidelines that will help you to grab your very first opportunity.
When you apply for your guest posting on a site there appears page of guidelines. Never be too lazy to go through each and every word. It may take a little time but I am sure you definitely don’t want your 1000 words long post to be rejected. So better to invest a few minutes rather than lose an opportunity to earn hundred dollars.

As I always say… “First impression is the last impression”, and it exactly works regarding Guest posting. You won’t get a second chance to impress the editors, so make sure to grab it in your first attempt.
These are some ideas that may help you to craft a pitch to standout among all:

- Write your name and your writing niche.
- Your writing experience along with some previously published articles and some links of the articles you loved from their site (It will give them some idea that you are aware of the style of their articles and done a great research)
- The topic you want to write for them and an impressive overview of it.
- Tell the publisher why the topic would be great for their site.
- Add your personality on the pitch that doesn’t sound robotic. Just don’t be like others… you want your pitch to be at rank 1.
Oh yeah!! You are done and can wait for their reply. :)
Now when your pitch is accepted what to do next?? Well….when you Guest Posting a site tries to keep them for a long term. Blogging is all about “Long-term relationship“. The quality of your Guest Post is going to determine whether you have added a value to their site or not.
Keep these things in mind while making a Guest Post for them:
