Exposure. At a bare minimum, tens of thousands of people will read your post. If your post goes viral, as they sometimes do here, you could reach hundreds of thousands or even millions.
Connections. Lots of popular bloggers also read, and if they like your post, it’ll put you on their radar.
Social sharing. Writing awesome content for other blogs too? Tell us about it, and if it’s relevant to our readers, we’ll share it on Twitter and Google+. Over time, this can be worth thousands of visitors to your own blog and other guest posts.
Introductions. If there’s someone you’d like to get to know, but you’re not quite sure how to contact them, just ask us for an introduction. If we know them, and we think it’s a good fit, we’ll introduce you.
Affiliate promotions. About to launch your own product and wondering how to get the word out? Well, just send us a copy of it, and we will take a look. No promises about promoting it, but being a writer for us at least guarantees you’ll be considered.
Training. Our editors are some of the best, and their job isn’t just to check for quality. It’s also to help you become a better writer. Yes, going through all the revisions is annoying, but you’ll learn about how to write in the process. And you won’t have paid us a dime to teach you.
