Are you still asking why do you need to guest post on a music blog? Here are few reasons you may have not known;
Build your Online Influence
How many people can you reach and impact with your posts? While posting on your blog is good, reaching out to guest post on blogs that are bigger than yours will give you more access to influence a lot more people than you can reach via your blog alone.
If your blog has 500 unique visitors daily, and a top blog in your field that accepts guest posts has 1200 visitors daily, guest-posting on the top blog as well as on yours enables you to reach 1700 people which is about forty-two percent more than you could reach with your blog alone.
Develop your Authority in a given Field
Being regarded as an authority in any given field takes time and one of the ways to fasten that process is to guest post on blogs that are already established in your niche or related niches.
This will get you associated with the big names in that field and will get people to start respecting your thoughts and ideas in that field.
A link on a page that links to another page is called a backlink and is a major parameter in the ranking of a page by Google page rank or Alexa page rank algorithms.
As a guest writer, you can get backlinks from quality and relevant sites which will help your blog’s ranking in search results.
