The feedback and insightful comments on the ask the readers posts have been phenomenal lately (and if you are newer to Think Traffic, check out them all out here). Today I want to hear your answer to a question we get all the time:
When you have a particularly great post in mind, is it better to publish as a guest post, or is posting it on your own site better?
I’m not talking about doing a crazy 50 guest posts in 50 days spree or planning a successful guest posting campaign, I’m just talking about a single post that you put multiple hours into creating and has the potential for going viral.
Now, there are a lot of potential interpretations for what “better” means to you, but I’d love to here in the comments what you think. Where is the best place to publish an epic post?
Last Time on “Ask the Readers”
Previously on “ask the readers” we asked, “if you had to start over online, what would you do differently?”
The answers ranged everywhere from starting earlier and doing more guest posts to focusing their niche more and having a stronger call to action.
My favorite answer came from Jared Akers. Here is an excerpt:
Do more and analyze less…
Spend more time writing laser focused actionable content.
And at the same time, I wouldn’t have done anything differently as I learned something from all of it.
There are some really great comments on that post, so if you are just starting out online, go learn from their lessons and mistakes here.
Back to today’s question: Is writing a guest post or posting it on your own site better?
