Build Your Blog Portfolio
It is not only about posting great photos of your product but also the way your blog is presented. Investing in crisp, quality photography is important. Learn how to take great pictures of your products by checking our free tutorial on craft photography.
Do your market research and list related sites you’d LOVE to get traffic from, and why you wanted traffic from those sites. Subscribe and get updates on what topics interest them the most and check their guest post guidelines.
Start e-mailing them. Keep your pitch email short and concise with a descriptive subject line that will tug at their eyeballs and keep their hand away from the Delete key and the opportunity begins there!
Don’t forget to always follow the instruction! If a blog asks for submissions in a certain way, do it that way. Bloggers receive tons of emails everyday and they set those guidelines for a reason. Make a good impression and you’re more likely to get posted.
There it is. Simple!
Good luck on your submissions!
