MyBlogGuest was started as a free forum with the idea of connecting people for mutual guest blogging benefits. It was never meant to grow that big. It was never meant to be monetized. It was funded from my services.

Then we started features that people needed or were asking for. That’s when we started paid memberships in order to cover development and maintenance costs. None of the initially free features has become paid. And we added some free features as well.

Free Features

If you seek free content for your blog, all parts of the site are FREE for you. You can get free articles, free infographics, free eBooks. Our guest blogging WordPress plugin is another absolutely free and cool feature any publisher can install to get an easy access to our database of free content.

We had an indepth chat on free features previously: MyBlogGuest Free Features for the Guest *Author*

Basically, as a free member, you get an access to the variety of free stuff including:

  • Forum and forum subscriptions (that send you email updates of new requests)

  • Free hand-picked lists (like “Featured opportunities” list that gets constantly updated)
  • Inbox (together with “Follow up” reminders that allow you to scale your outreach)
  • Free “Help needed” forum where you can get extra social media shares for your guest posts (This feature has been later expanded to a separate free platform called Viral Content Buzz)
  • “Friendlist” is a cool feature that helps you organize and keep in touch with your MBG connections

PRO membership

PRO membership was designed for guest authors who seek getting further educated and placing more guest articles. It’s meant to actually turn you into a content marketing and guest blogging *pro*.

How to: Promote Your eBooks at #MyBlogGuest Books Category

Category #MyBlogGuest Twitter Chat Posted by

Join our Twitter chat on TwChat =>MyBlogGuest Twitter chat

Please take the full free course over at @udemy to make sure you know and get most out of your MyBlogGuest membership!

eBooks, or digital books, are one of the most efficient content marketing and content re-packaging methods:

  • eBooks open your content for offline reading (with tablets and smartphones on the rise, that’s especially essential)
  • eBooks, thus, let your customers take your brand with them (on the plane or vacation). Your readers are more likely to remember and return to your site if they have your eBook on their digital shelf
  • eBook marketing is fun and easy: You have Amazon kindle, iBooks, etc to market your book on.
  • Free eBooks are a great link bait (who wouldn’t like a curated list of eBooks like this)
  • eBooks are shared eagerly (especially if you implement “Tweet to download” or a similar trick)

In other words, if you haven’t tried eBook marketing, you are missing out… Especially now that we are introducing a new fun feature for content marketers:

eBook Gallery

eBook gallery lets you bring your eBooks to publishers with the unique description of your own. It works much like the Inforgraphics gallery … only it’s for (e)Books:

  • Google Plus updates do very well when it comes to personalized Google rankings (your connections see what you share when searching Google with a huge sacrifice on relevancy).

Re-packaging = turning your (text) content into different types of media or other formats of content. Re-packaging is one of the most effective content marketing tactics. It allows you to:

  • Create more content based on one research
  • Target more diverse social media and content marketing channels
  • Bring up your older content by keep referring to it from your re-packaged versions.

Here are a few tips on re-packaging your guest posts:

*Remember to always link from your repackaged content to the original guest post – that’s the most effective second-tier link building I’ve seen in my life! And your publisher will love you even more!*
