Since January 2006, Copyblogger has been teaching people how to create killer online content. Not bland corporate noise created to fill up a company webpage. Valuable information that attracts attention, drives traffic, and builds your business. These days, that’s called content marketing. Copyblogger founder Brian Clark has been building businesses with online content marketing since 1998, before anyone used that term.
Blogging on your own site and on the web properties of others has been a staple tactic to compliment content marketing staffing and SEO staffing alike for some time now. It’s easy to determine that guest blog posting is probably a digital marketing tactic worth considering for yourself–but how should your brand respond when approached with offers from others to post their blog content on your site?
