“Aaron Orendorff provides all the detailed steps you'll need to guide you through the guest blogging process, soup to nuts. You'll learn which publishers to target; how to pick a juicy topic and get your creative ideas flowing; exactly how to craft your post for a targeted pub; how to pitch and accept rejection — and how to move forward from there. When you follow it, you'll get to the point where you finally hit the submit button for the first time."

"We’ve published his fresh, original thinking multiple times on MarketingProfs. Aaron nails the delicate balance of creating content like a writer and delivering business value like a strategist.”

Meg Harris

“I knew I was supposed to be guest blogging to build my authority ... And, before I started the course I had fitful starts and stops for months. ... as I progressed through the course I realized "you can't know what you don't know." So, yes to the process Aaron lays out so thoroughly for getting your articles accepted at your dream publication! Every time I sit down to work on guest blogging, I feel excited about the possibilities and confident in the process.”

Brian Clark

Founder and CEO of Copyblogger

“We’re very selective about who writes for Copyblogger from outside the company, but we’re always happy to see a submission from Aaron. He creates content that goes wild on social media, somehow managing to be irresistible while also providing in-depth analysis. Our readers love Aaron’s work, and that means so do I.”
