The Blog: Expert Enough
Editor: Caleb Wojcik
Topic: Striving to be a better expert at many things. “It’s about wanting to learn more, do more and be more.”
Target audience: Renaissance men and women who are trying to get better at a lot of different things in life.
Compensation: One link to your site and one link to a social media account of your choosing.
Other perks: Expert Enough offers access to an engaged audience of roughly 4,000 subscribers.
What kind of posts they like: “We like to provide immense amounts of information and helpful advice for our audience in a clean and easy to read format. We generally don’t want long, essay type posts. Make your content bloggy and shareable,” encourages Caleb. “Take a look at the categories of the posts we do (sports & fitness, food & drink, etc.) and try to pick something we haven’t covered extensively before.”
Examples of three posts that have done well:
1. Does Visualization Really Work? Here’s Evidence That It Does
2. How to Run a Marathon and Live to Tell the Tale
3. Chocolate: A Complete Beginner’s Guide
What you can do to help the editor say YES: Be sure to follow the guidelines completely (include a proper image at the right size, include bio, etc.) and do not overly link to your own work.
Lead time: A week or two.
Google Page Rank: 4
What’s Google Page rank? In basic terms, it’s Google’s assessment of your site, from 1-10, with 10 being best. You want to guest post for sites with high page ranks because when that site links back to your blog, it boosts your SEO.
