Content Marketing With WordPress – Guest Blogging

In this tutorial series, we explore Guest Blogging – an effective strategy that allows user-generated content to be published on your site and to publish content on other websites and blogs.

WordPress gives you the ability to assign and manage different types of user roles on your website (e.g. contributors, authors, and editors). This allows you to invite guest authors to contribute content to your site, often for little more than a return link to their own website or one or two lines of self-promotion.

One of the main benefits for you as a publisher of guest posts (apart from getting user-generated content that you didn’t have to write), is that this helps to attract new audiences to your website, as guest authors invariably like to promote or reference their articles on social media, freelance writing sites, directories, etc.
