Ultimate Guide to Finance Guest Post

Where to submit a personal finance guest post is something that many of us personal finance bloggers have in mind. I have done a lot of research into guest posting on personal finance blogs. I thought it might be helpful to share with you the results of my research, just in case you are thinking about submitting guest posts as well.

What is Guest Post?

Simply put, guest posting means that you write and publish an article on someone else’s website or blog.

Advantages to Guest Post on Personal Finance Blogs

  • You can reach a wider audience.
    • If you have a great idea that you want to share with the rest of the world, leveraging another site can definitely help you speed up the process.
  • Guest posting is great for search engines.
    • The sites typically allow you (and if they don’t, you really should insist) to include at least one link (called “backlink”) back to your own website or blog, whether it is in the body of the article, or in the author bio.
    • Having backlinks allow your site to be more easily searchable in search engines such as Google.
  • Guest posting enables you to connect with other bloggers/site owners.
    • Bloggers are constantly looking for fresh ideas and new articles. By guest posting, you are helping your target sites drive traffic.
    • The fact that the blog/site is happy to accept your guest post means that you share something in common. This is a great step towards establishing relationships and friendships.

Disadvantages to Guest Post on Personal Finance Blogs

  • They sites may or may not offer monetary compensations.
    • In fact, through my research, I find the majority of them do not.
  • Some sites may actually require you to pay to get your post published, as they consider guest posting a type of advertising.
  • You may write a lengthy article, only to receive a rejection, or to not hear back from the site owner at all
    • I recommend that instead of writing a full article, you provide an outline of your idea to gauge interest first.
    • If you have the urge to write the full-length article (something that I personally experience if I am very passionate about a certain topic), then write it anyway. Worst case scenario, you have a valuable piece for your own blog!
    • As for getting rejections or not hearing back at all, well, this is just a natural part of the process. Embrace every rejection as view it as a motivation to find the next place.

I personally believe that guest posting is a valuable way to build relationships with like-minded bloggers and build traffic to your site. Through my research, I have come across the following blogs and have identified their guest post policies.

Personal Finance Guest Post Etiquettes

Before you submit

  • I recommend that before you submit a guest post, check out your target blog’s website first to understand what the blog is about.
  • You may want to go one step further and share or comment on some of their posts first
  • Read and follow their guest post policies. If the blog wants you to submit a sample, submit a sample. If they only accept articles focusing on personal finance issues for parents, then make sure you tailor your article to that.
  • Make sure that you actually put in the effort in writing your inquiry email/message. You must show that you are genuinely interested in writing a post that meets the blog’s needs. Your message/email should also be grammatically correct.

After you submit the first inquiry

  • Be patient! They may not always reply right away.
  • If they don’t reply within one to two weeks, follow up at least once just in case your original message slipped through the cracks. But I’d advise against bombarding them with emails.
  • Always thank them, whether they accept your guest post or not.

If your guest post is accepted

  • If your target blog accepts your guest post, then congratulations! Make sure you thank them.
  • Make sure you also promote your guest post on all your social media platforms. Help me help you!
  • Do not publish the guest post somewhere else (including your own blog) unless all parties involved agree. Most blogs look for original contents.
  • You may want to try cross-posting, meaning that you write a guest post on their site, and they write one on yours. Experiment with it!

Check out the blogging tools I use!

  • Bluehost: perfect for beginners who want to upgrade from a free platform (so you can start monetizing) but who also want to minimize spending. Check out my Bluehost review to see why I chose it as my first hosting company. Sign up for Bluehost here. 
  • NameSilo: One of the most economical registrar and hosting companies out there. I stumbled upon this company and have been very happy with the service. It is my current registrar. Use promo code “bellawanana” at check out to get a special discount! Sign up for NameSilo here. 
  • SiteGround: This is my current hosting company. It is more expensive than Bluehost, but I like it for its SiteGround optimizer plugin, the free email accounts, and the better speed with my site. Sign up for SiteGround here. 
  • Ezoic: This is the ad network I have joined. It pays quite a bit better than Google AdSense. If you have over 5,000 pageviews a month, you should definitely consider applying for it! Sign up for ezoic here.

These are all I have right now! I hope the advice above can save you some time as you try to expand your readership through guest posting. I will be constantly updating this post as I come across new personal finance blogs. Please leave a comment down below if you know any additional ones that should be on the lists. Thanks a lot!
