I've been working with people one-on-one on the option to Get Your Site or Product Featured on ClickNewz and several great questions and ideas have come up in the process. I'll share those with you in this Q&A to shed some light on the opportunity...
First, read the post on Featured Editorials for details and live examples. This will explain what they are and how they can benefit YOUR business.
The post you're reading now serves as a follow-up to that post, with creative ideas and answers to questions you may have about publishing your post here on ClickNewz for a serious traffic or sales boost.
I'll work with you personally to get the most out of a Featured Editorial. From your angle to your objective, even helping you with keywords and headline, I'll help you get maximum exposure for your website and/or products. 😉
Meeting Your Advertising Goals
A Featured Editorial will get a lot of exposure when first published, but it's also a permanent post and a long-term advertisement for your online business. With that in mind, consider what you most want to get out of this exposure, and work from that end on your post topic and angle.
What end result do you most want from your advertising? Do you want more email subscribers, more sales of a specific product, or what exactly? Knowing your objective upfront will help you craft a strong and specific call-to-action that will bring ideal visitors to your site.
Featured Editorial vs Guest Post
A guest blog post is generally a how-to or informational piece that you write, with a short byline or signature at the end that includes your website address. Ideally the topic is a good lead-in to who you are and what you offer, but the byline is more an aside - even if you do use a strong call to action.
With a Featured Editorial you can spotlight your offer and speak directly to my readers about who you are and what you can do for them. It gives you an opportunity to "advertise" in an introductory and conversational way - engaging my readers specifically on the topic of your offer - which will result in much higher click-through and conversion rates!
- You may only submit unique content.
- Exclusive reprint rights: content may not be republished anywhere else online.
- Post Length and Post Format (text/video) are completely up to you.
- Payment is accepted via PayPal, only if your post is reviewed and accepted.
- It must be a good match for my readership.
(I am happy to help you with your angle!)
Can I Use Affiliate Links?
Yes, you may! If you would like to publish a Product Review as an affiliate, this would make an excellent post. I highly recommend you see my post on How to Write a Product Review to create a review that will spark interest and improve sales.
Additional Advertising & Exposure
I currently have only ONE Site Sponsor opening. You can see ClickNewz stats in the original post. This option is for site-wide advertising in the right sidebar. The current rate is $500/month - or $3600/year (40% off the monthly rate).
As a bonus, you will get one free Featured Editorial for each month that you are an active ClickNewz Sponsor, giving you even more reach and an opportunity to *engage* my readers in addition to direct advertising.
Choose the annual option to save 40% and get 12 opportunities to interact directly with my readers, subscribers & social media connections!
Ready To Get Started?
See the original post for stats & benefits.
I will only publish a limited number of Featured Editorials. This is first come first serve. I personally review each post, and reserve the right to accept or decline posts based on what will serve my readers best.
Now is a great time to take advantage of this unique opportunity! 😉
If your post is not used for any reason, I will let you know right away so you can publish it on your own blog or elsewhere on the web - so there's no risk, no loss. 😉
Once you have the post written, simply send it to me via email as an attachment. It's best to draft it on your own blog, then click the HTML tab, copy the HTML code and paste it into a text file - then attach that in your email. I recommend you include an image to use in the post as well, as posts with images get a higher click-through rate from my social media channels.
