I enjoy running this site, and it’s had some small success over the last few years. Hopefully that continues…
On that note I’m more than happy to accept and publish articles from bloggers, writers, and the financial industry here on My Own Advisor but I keep this to a minimum because feedback on this site informs me folks are interested in reading what I have to say about a variety of subjects, not always reading content from others. For today’s post I have some quick advice for people trying to get me to “bite” on their daily offers for site content – be creative but at very least be genuine.
- Be creative
Attractive Article for your website User
I have a article relevant to your theme. My article is unique and
new and fresh. So will you post my article on your site if yes then please tell
me your charges as per your criteria. If it comes under my budget then
I will contact you back. Hope you like my proposal. Waiting for the positive reply.
Have a great day ahead.”
I suspect this reader doesn’t read my site. Here is my response to this request:
Thanks for your interest in my site. I am not accepting guest posts at this time. In future I suggest you are more creative with your pitch, so I may consider learning more about your offer. Otherwise just offer me a boat load of money to accept your content. Thanks for understanding.
- Be genuine
Hope you are doing great. We have the best unique content on “Finance” which we would like to publish on your site ( www.myownadvisor.ca) as an exclusive guest post. Once our content will publish on your site then we will not share it with other site. Do let us know if we can send the article to u for review. Best Regards.”
Thanks for your email spam. Here is my response to this request:
Thanks for your interest in my site. I am not accepting guest posts at this time. Also, if you have done any 5-second reading on my site you should know I am a “team” of one. Please make some genuine effort next time, providing some real details about your pitch in future requests. Otherwise please offer me a six-figure sum of money as compensation so I can shut down my site after I post your content. Thanks for understanding.
I receive a host a credible and sincere offers to publish content on my site. Thanks for those. I read every email I get and I try to respond to every one of them. Other requests are spammy. I want to let you know I’m here to review your suggestions, ideas and post your content now and then but I’m not willing to trash my site with it.
Fellow bloggers and writers – how do you deal with these email requests?
