How to Contribute by Guest Posting

I welcome contributions from experts with wisdom to offer about how to help men become more confident and effective in their lives.  If you're a psychologist, counsellor, life coach, dating coach or you're just passionate about helping men become more confident, I'd love to hear from you. You can become a one-off guest blogger, or contribute a series of articles over time.

Relevant topics include self-esteem, communication skills, emotional mastery, masculinity, women, dating, relationshipssex and life skills. Basically anything that helps make a man more confident, competent and effective in the world.

This is a great way to broaden your exposure if you have a product, service or business helping men. In return for contributing, you get the kudos of seeing your name in print and a valuable dofollow back link to your website in your Bio, which is good for your search engine ranking. If you have an affiliate program, I will join it and use my affiliate link in your Bio. Either way you get your name in lights as a subject matter expert, along with more traffic, business and/or sales.

Contributions must be unique, original content not published anywhere else on the web.  Aim for around 400 to 600 words.  If have a lot to say, consider splitting your article into a series. Write the way you speak and keep your tone conversational, as if you were giving advice to a good a friend. Include your personal story of how you overcame your own insecurities. Speak in the first person by using "I". Write about the topic that you're most passionate about, or the issue that caused the most grief for you or for your male clients. Aim to educate rather than to sell your service; visitors will contact you to learn more if they like what you have to say.

I only accept articles written by experts with a unique take on building confidence for men, so don't outsource writing the article. You need to know what you're talking about; don't just rehash Double Your Dating. Also, make sure you've checked Google's guidelines on building links in large-scale article campaigns. I don't accept low-quality articles with spam links that will degrade my site's rankings, and ultimately yours.

You may include a couple of links to your website, with relevant anchor text, in the body of the article; but don't go crazy or Google will see your whole article as spam. Also bear in mind that your article will probably also contain a couple of automatically generated onsite or offsite links once it is published. This works both ways though so you'll also get automatic links to your article too so long as you're writing on a topic nobody else has covered and given it a good long tail (i.e. multi-word) keyword title.

Include a brief biography, with a hyperlink to your website. Register an avatar at gravatar.com so your picture to appears in your biography. If you're comfortable creating posts in WordPress I'll set you up as a Contributor and send you a password via email; this will get your article posted more quickly.

When you submit your article, you must mention Seinfeld, my favorite comedy series of all time, to demonstrate that you've fully read these guidelines. Otherwise I'll point you back to the guidelines and ask you to resubmit again.
