Tools for working with bloggers
The first thing you should think about is the financial guest post. Financial guest posting is a method of hosting sponsored publications that works based on the interaction between the optimizer and the external resource representative. Cooperation is possible only if the article is really of high-quality and value. Authoritative bloggers do not post low-quality content and prioritize the interests of the audience over financial gain. Not all bloggers accept articles from external projects and post content. If the material is not thematic and is not attractive to the target audience, it may not be posted, and the money for creating an article or post will be wasted.
Advantages of the financial guest posts:
- attracting the target audience;
- link retention guarantee;
- growth of branded traffic;
- pumping link weight;
- the ability to scale processes.
