Guest Blogging: You're Doing it Wrong by Larry Alston on the Marketing Tech Blog

Guest blogging

LOVE this article. Guest blogging is an important part in getting your brand's name out there. However, you can't just guest blog for the sake of guest blogging.

This is bad guest blogging etiquette and will tarnish your reputation in the industry.
