    Im trying to get into guest blogging but find its a bit tough. I have written an article too that went live today for my niche so maybe that will help. I think guest blogging is good for generating traffic to a site but that doesn’t always convert into sales be it through affiliate marketing or selling your product. That tends to happen when the traffic is very targeted I find.

    Guest blogging does have a benefit though I think though – just to get your name out there and generate some interest in your brand/blog which is usually a good starting point to build from.

    Thanks for the article Louise, I will bookmark it.
