Common Mistakes in Blogger Outreach

Common Mistakes in Blogger Outreach

The things that often get overlooked are usually the ones that we consider we know the best. We are telling ourselves that we have done them a million times before and somehow we forgot to give them the needed attention. In blogger outreach it seems that those mistakes are often related to pitches and engagement.

There are plenty of articles written by bloggers or PR pros related to this topic, and for our 86th week of roundup articles we choose the latest and the best of them. Enjoy!

  1. The perfect choice to begin this week’s roundup is Ibtek’s article that comes with a straightforward and self-explanatory title 11 Dumb Mistakes to Avoid When Doing Blog Outreach. Check it out to read a great collection of traps that even the most experienced professionals risk to fall in.
  2. The second choice reveals a blogger’s perspective upon some bad pitches. Stoofies’s article 5 Ways of Killing Your Pitch to a Blogger should be an interesting and useful reading for anyone wanting to engage with bloggers. Her suggestions are quite well describing a lot of reasons for a blogger to turn down a pitch without any regrets.
  3. As we stated the last week, pitching for guest posting is almost another breed of blogger outreach, so it needs even more attention and involvement from your part.  As there is no such a thing like too many pieces of advice when it comes to guest posting, we invite you to take a look at Gary Shouldis’ article How To Successfully Pitch Your Next Guest Post.
  4. Last, but not least of this week’s roundup is Holly Dawson’s article Sowing The Seed – How to Get Your Content Placed. This reading is great for those who are making their first steps in pitching bloggers, providing some great and useful guidelines for writing a pitch.

That’s it for this week. Enjoy reading the articles, learn from the authors’ experiences and share your thoughts.
