Guest Blogging Spotlight: Mirasee

The Blog:


Contact Info: Pitch Selene Benjamin at editor[at]

Topic:  Mirasee publishes content that helps beginner entrepreneurs with strategy and positioning; traffic and growth; audience engagement; selling, launching, productivity, and motivation.

Target Audience:  Its target audience is beginner to intermediate entrepreneurs and small business owners with 0-10 employees who are interested in building an online audience and creating courses.

Compensation: Mirasee offers $200 per post.

Other Perks:  Guest bloggers can include one or two links in their author bio, and Mirasee promotes posts through its large email list and social media channels. Mirasee also provides a promotions guidelines document that can be used not just for the guest post but also for any other material the author wishes to promote.

Examples of three posts that have done well:

The editor chose not to select top posts, noting “It’s really important to us that [writers] research the site before they pitch. From there they can figure out who our audience is, what kinds of posts we publish, and check the social shares and comments to see if it got any traction.”

What you can do to help the editor say YES:

“Please, please, please follow the guidelines from the start. There’s a reason we ask for pitches the way we do. The ‘Write For Us’ page is not too involved and the ‘How to Pitch’ section is pretty clear and super simple. If it’s clear from the pitch that they have not researched the site, we’re not going to say yes,” advises editor Selene Benjamin.

Lead time: Mirasee typically keeps a two-month runway.  

Google PageRank: 0

What’s Google PageRank? In basic terms, it’s Google’s assessment of your site, from 0-10, 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.

*Note: Mirasee was formerly Firepole Marketing, founded in 2010. The Google PageRank is not necessarily indicative of the amount of traffic and exposure Mirasee receives.
