Opportunities For Guest Posting, Link Exchanges And Advertising

Guest Posting
Since its launch back in August 2010, Derek's Home and Business Blog has grown beyond all my expectations and it's all down to you, my valued and dedicated followers, visitors and my friends at Bloggers Network.

This growth is truly exceptional and therefore, I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for making this blog so successful and for your continued support. You make this blog and the work that goes into it all worthwhile.

Given this exciting growth, I'm now able to offer some extra services on the blog. These services include Guest Posting, Article Submissions, Reciprocal Link Exchanges and a variety of Advertising options for those wishing to promote their products and/or services on the blog.

Here's a quick break-down of the services that's being offered...

Guest Posting and Article Submissions

I'm always on the lookout for high quality, informative articles to offer my readers. If you write business-related articles or articles on the topics of Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Social Media Marketing/Optimisation (SMO), Blogging, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) or Search Engine Marketing (SEM), I would like to hear from you.

To ensure you have full recognition for your work, each published article or guest post will be featured and include two "DoFollow" links to your website or blog; one in the lead-in sentence (used to introduce you) at the beginning of the article/post and the other at the end of the article/post within the author's bio. You can also promote your social network profiles by including your Facebook, Google+ or Twitter profile links within the bio section. Guidelines on guest posting and article submissions can be found on the Write For Us page.

Reciprocal Link Exchanges

Reciprocal link exchanges that fit into the subject matter of the blog are always welcome. If you are interested in exchanging links and your site is of good quality, has a fair amount of traffic and has a Google PageRank of 3 or more, please contact me with your site details using the Contact tab above. Don't forget that if you're a blog owner, you can list your blog in our new Blog Directory page.


Although based in the UK, Derek's Home and Business Blog receives traffic from and promotes to a global audience. If you are an advertising agency or an individual interested in advertising your products and/or services on the blog, please don't hesitate to contact me using the Contact tab above.

Advertising options within the subject matter of the blog can include Banners, Contextual Ads, Text Links, Videos and Articles. These options can be of any length of time (from one month to permanent), depending on your or the client's requirements. All advertising prices are currently open to negotiations (until further notice) and to avoid transaction and currency conversion fees, payments made using PayPal. For more details and pricing, visit the Advertise page.

Please note: To continue to ensure that the blog can be viewed by any age group, we do not offer advertising options where the content of the advertisement or the site it links to contains gambling, pharmaceutical or adult content.

If you are interested in guest posting or submitting articles, exchanging links or advertising your products and/or services on the blog, please don't hesitate to contact me using the Contact tab above.

Finally and for those of you who may be concerned over the new advertising options and what it might do to the quality of the blog, don't worry. The quality of the blog and its written content will always take priority over any advertising. Allowing some advertising on the blog and the revenue it generates helps go towards the upkeep of the blog and pay for the services I use to promote it. Striking the right balance between quality and having the right amount of advertising can sometimes be difficult but I hope to get this right...if I don't, be sure to let me know :)

Once again, thank you for your continued support and for making the blog what it is today. I'll continue to bring you more of the same quality posts that you've come to enjoy.

As ever, if you want to stay up to date with the latest blog posts, don't forget to follow via Google Friend Connect (button on sidebar), on NetworkedBlogs, via Email (maximum of one email per day), on Facebook and Google+ or by subscribing to our blog feed at:
