“Guest Blogging Contest” – This is something viral nowadays , you can see many blogs starting guest blogging contest.But have you ever thought of the advantages of conducting a Guest blogging contest on your blog? Are you planning to do so, then this is the post for you.From last month I was researching on Guest Blogging contest and now I’m making a post on it.Here I’ll be explaining about the amazing factors and advantages behind Guest Blogging Contest.
Ok Here I’ve a question to ask you.What will you do after making a post for a Guest Blogging contest ? I hope the answer you are going to give me is Sharing.Why? because you need shares,Comments etcc to win the contest.Now may I ask another question, how many shares you do alone? 10 Group Shares or atleast 10 Shares Including page,groups and timeline.I’m damn Sure you do it because you need shares and comments to win the Game 🙂 .Even guest bloggers are using Email Marketing to get traffic.Now what happens when you are sharing? the blog owner get’s traffic.Let’s do a small calculation.
1 Post * 10 Shares We can expect 10 Page views from 1 Share.So,
1 Post * 10 Shares = 10 Shares *10 Pageviews = 100 Pageviews 🙂 Agree with me? Yes you should.
So, if the contest covered almost 10 Posts then ,
10 Posts * 10 Shares = 100 Shares * 10 Pageviews = 1000 Pageviews.
If it’s 30 Posts then 3000, 40 = 4000 and So on
Note :- This is Just a round and minimum calculation almost 60+ Shares are done for a Post a day.So think of the traffic I guess it cross 10k a day may be.
The most precious one in this game is content.To win the contest most of the blogger try to write killer articles to attract readers and to get shares and likes.Even they don’t mind sharing their secrets.But you should not be sad to share your secret tips because the blogger is paying you $100+ if you win it.We Should respect him. 🙂
So coming to the topic. In a guest blogging contest ,normally blog owners get more than 10+ Killer Articles and it may go till 50+ and it depends on the Contest price.More the price more the articles and traffic.So I’m going for a calculation especially for bloggers who makes this contest.
10 Killer Articles Normally Costs more than $5 So,
10 Articles * $5 = $50 🙂 and It’s Quite Self Explanatory 😉
It nearly reached the contest price :P.
Make Money Factors
Yes, you can make money with Guest blogging contest.As I said a blog conducting guest blogging contest will be getting a good amount of traffic say 3000 Page views daily.So if that guy is using adsense in his blog then think of his earning.
Note :- If you are running a Blogging Niche Blog it’s difficult to make money with it.Other than blogging niche can make big money 🙂
So back to the calculation,
3000 Page Views * 3% CTR = 90 Clicks * $0.10 CPC = $9 a Day
Isn’t that super cool? Here I’m calculating with a Low CPC and a low CTR.You can make much bigger amount from this contests .
So $50 for content + $9 a Day*10 Days Contest = $140
That’s more than the price of the Contest.We can make it $100 ($40-) then also it’s super cool.So don’t think twice before going for a guest blogging contest.
Social Media Presence and Branding
Yes, when people start sharing their post on “Your Blog” then more and more bloggers are knowing about your blog.There you blog is becoming famous and branding is on duty.After the guest Blogging Contest also you get readers ,real readers and daily visitors.You get more likes to your page and twitter followers just like a giveaway.
