Email Outreach Templates for Guest Posting
I recently came across BanjosOnTheGreen.com and saw that you play a Deering Banjo. I broke the neck on my banjo a few days ago so I’ve been looking for a new one. I’ve never played a Deering before though: what’s your take on them?
Also, I’ve been writing up music articles and would love the chance to write on your blog. I’d be happy to send over a new set of banjo strings as a thanks!
My name is [your name]. I was wondering: do you accept guest post on [Website name]? It’s a food recipe, so it would be a perfect fit for your blog.
I’ll gladly send you over some cooking supplies as a thank you!

Subject: you should blog about [insert your guest blog post topic][insert their first name], as an avid reader of [insert their site name], I would love to read about [insert guest blog post topic], and I think your other readers would as well.
Your content on [insert existing post from their website #1, insert existing post from their website #2, and insert existing post from their website #3] is great, but I think you can tie it all together by blogging on [insert guest blog post topic].
I know you are probably busy and won’t blog on it, so I’m going to make you an offer you can’t refuse. How about I write it for you? Don’t worry, I’m a great blogger and have had my posts featured on [insert previous guest post URL #1] and [insert previous guest post URL #2].
Let me know if you are interested. I already know your blogging style, plus I understand what your readers love… as I am one.

I saw that you’re the [THEIR POSITION] over at [THEIR COMPANY] and I wanted to get in touch. I’ve seen guest contributions before on the [TOPIC] blog and wanted to know if you were open to any more guest contributions. I am looking to write about something related to [NICHE] and thought that the topics I had in mind may go well on the [TOPIC] blog.
I was thinking about the following subjects:
What do you think about these? If you’re interested, I am happy to get something written up and sent over to you – or if you have another topic you’d like to see covered, I am more than happy to write on that.
Hi [First Name],[Brand] would like to contribute an article about [topic]. Is this something you’d be interested in?
Subject: Great insight about how you ruthlessly cull emails
Hey Quoteable Influencer,
I’ve been following your blog for the past 3 years, so many juicy tidbits!
- Your description of super busy people ruthlessly culling non-relevant and non-urgent emails really resonated with me.
Here’s the post you inspired about keeping emails as short as possible: [link]
- If you’re so inclined, feel free to give it some social media love. 🙂
My name is [Your Name] and I’ve been a subscriber of your blog for about 6 months now. I believe I’ve sent you a few emails and commented on a few posts.
If you ave few moments. I’d love to pitch you a guest post.
I’ve done some research on your blog and some of your most shared post are[link of the post] – number of shares[link of the post] – number of shares[link of the post] – number of shares
It’s clear to me that part of your audience loves about xyz.com is learning about what it’s like to be a location independent entrepreneur in a relatable way.

Subject: Article idea: how to create an effective study guide by turning every concept into a visual diagram
Been following your blog for a while.
- Really enjoyed your [recent article] – the only sustained way to motivate yourself to study is to think about how you can apply or benefit from the information. Brute force memorization for marks is the fast lane to burn out and sometimes dropping out.
- I have an article idea that I think would appeal to your audience. It’s about how to create your own super effective study guide for tough courses by turning every concept into a visual diagram.
- a) It is very difficult to understand a technically challenging topic like coagulation by reading textbooks’ walls of text. Videos that animate and narrate the process save your sanity.
Smart Google searches to unearth publishing companies’ high-quality supplementary videos
Which parts of the video to screen capture for your notes – during aspects of a process you struggle to understand or remember
- b) How to organize and summarize your screenshots
How to summarize every major idea into one sentence
How to find similar diagrams to reinforce aspects of a topic the images/screen captures you already have may be lacking
- c) How to use Table of Contents and Headings to organize notes and screenshots in Word
How to use Table of Contents to facilitate quick jumps into different sections
I’ll be writing it in the step by step format you excel at.

Subject: A Quick Question
Hey [website owner name]
My name is [your name] – 1/3rd of an exciting up and coming software development team called
I was doing some research on blogger outreach and i found [link of his article] extremely helpful, so just a quick thank you on that note for letting [guest blogger name] post that on your site.
You have been on my radar for a while now, and I’m particularly impressed with the success your having with [Website name ].
I’m reaching out to you because I wanted to ask if you are interested i having us write a guest post related and targeted audience needs.
All our articles come from our co-founder [Co-founder name], whose writing has been featured in top publications like[link 1][link 2]
If you check out any of those hopefully it will show that the articles are of the highest quality, unique and always related to the audience.
Additionally we’d love to do something special for you AND your audience by giving away three lifetime licences to our new product
(one for you and two for your audience), which you can use to increase email opt ins, social media likes and engagement!
I hope you can let me know if you think a guest post from us could be interesting for you?
Thanks in advanced[Your Name]
Hey [Website owner name]
My name is [your name] and I’ve been a subscriber of you blog for about 6 months now. I believe I’ve sent you a few emails and commented on a few posts and more recently I sent you a friend request in the DC.
If you have a few moments. I’d love to pitch you a guest post.
I’ve done some research on your blog and some of your most shared posts are[link 1] – number of shares[link 2] – number of shares[link 3 ] – number of shares
It’s clear to me that part of what your audience loves about [his website name] is learning about what it’s like to be a location independent entrepreneur in a relatable way.
This make sense, as I suspect a lot of your audience is comprised of people who are aspiring to be location independent despite not knowing fully what it’s like, or who are location independent and want to read something they can related to.
As such, I’ve customized a topic I’d like to share with your readers.[title of your post]
Frankly, being an entrepreneur can be down right lonely, and I know you’ve expressed this statement o your blog too. Many people hate the office but they forget about the things they are giving up when they seek location-less living. Things like fantasy football leagues, water cooler talk and group projects. While here are plenty of digital nomads out there, the said truth is, most of us aren’t connecting in an meaningful way.
Discussing this topic could be great for your audience ass it both educates want to be entrepreneurs, but also speaks to current entrepreneurs in a relatable way(we’ve all been there).
Let me know if you might be interested in having me put something like this together.

Subject: Re: Title of their blog post
Hey Cool Blogger,
1. I was looking for a few resources on momentum trading and I came across your very informative guide: [Title]
2. I noticed that one of the resources you mentioned on online brokerage comparisons no longer exists.
I recently created an extensively researched guide on how to choose the right online brokerage for you: [Link]
Considering trade volume, trade frequency, invested amount and other key factors.
It might make a good addition to your article.
Either way, keep up your insightful articles – Google sure loves those 10 000+ word tomes.
Hey Site Owner,
I was doing some research on hiring freelancers and I came across your page.
1. Noticed you mention one of my favorite guides on the topic: [link].
I experimented with its steps myself and found great success with Reddit as well. Especially when you use a no brown M&Ms clause to weed out people who don’t even bother to read your entire job listing.
2. I just published a more in-depth 5000+ word tome laying out step by step how to find, motivate and pay a remote team of freelancers: [link].
It might be worth a mention. 🙂
Either way, keep up your great work explaining the necessary groundwork people have to put down to get closer to the 4HWW dream.
It goes through everything step by step – loves to know what you think!

I’m a licensed (industry specialist) and a health writer – I recently visited your site while researching for an article I’m working on…
This is a note for your webmaster, as I found a dead resource on your site that visitors like me surely miss.
It’s on this page: http://www.theirsite.gov/linksandresources
I got an error message when I tried to click on this site: http://DeadURL.org/index.jsp
It looks like they made a change to their home page but didn’t update it… anyhow, the correct link is here: http://www.FixedURL.org/
And while you’re updating your page, I wondered if you’d be open to including some further resources that could help people struggling with similar issues.

this page: (page with broken links)
These two pages that you linked to don’t seem to exist anymore:

Template 11 (Big Fan)
SUBJECT: QUESTION ABOUT (THEIR SITE)
Hey [first name],
Just wanted to start off saying that I love [and I mean love!] [their site].
In fact, I spent my afternoon yesterday combing through a few of your classic articles.
This one was particularly amazing: [article link].
One thing, though: a link in the post wasn’t working. Looks like the site moved.
No biggie, just wanted to let you know.
Actually, I just posted an article that covers the same topic [article link].
As a huge fan I’d be honored if you’d consider replacing the bad link with a link to my content.
If not, it’s cool. I’ll still read your stuff!
Template 12.1 (The bait and switch)
This is a two-part sequence: First, you email them to let them know about broken links without giving them any specifics. Then you follow up with the broken links…and your replacement link.
SUBJECT: BROKEN LINKS AT (THEIR SITE)

Template 12.2 (The bait and switch)
SUBJECT: BROKEN LINKS AT (THEIR SITE)
No problem. Here are the broken links that I found:
(broken link #1)
(broken link #2)
It’d be great if you would consider replacing one of the links to a link to this page on my site: quicksprout.com/greatest-post-ever.
I’ve got great feedback on it and I think it would be a perfect replacement for those broken links.
Template 13 (The long shot)
This is best for sites that rock the 1997 GeoCities look. Because the response rate is so low, this email is simply intended to see if there’s a warm body running the site. If so, you can spend time pitching them.
SUBJECT: IS (THEIRSITE) STILL ACTIVE?

Just checking to see if you still update the site.

I just read your awesome post where you compared Voltron and Power Rangers to Optimus Prime and crew. Not sure if I agree that the Power Rangers could have taken out Megatron in the first film. I mean honestly, they had trouble with giant bears on their own show!
Truthfully, I think Voltron would make short work of all of them. Speaking of Voltron have you ever seen this hilarious live action spoof? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtwX0nuqPO0

Hey [website owner name]
Can i feature you in a blog post?
I’m putting together a massive entrepreneur round up and I would love for you to be a part of it. I’ve connected with some very big names and I know that if you have just a few minutes to answer this question, it will provide some great exposure for your brand when it’s published. Plus it will be a very cool post, as our first sales always have a special place in our hearts.
Here’s what my audience would like to know.[title]
By large, I essentially am asking you to ignore any small sales, like selling an old computer on ebay. I’m talking about a service or a product you offered.
If you can elaborate on it (how you came to the decision, who you targeted) great!
Feel free to be as specific or vague as you like and i am happy for you to include any links to your sales page if it is still active.
I know you’re very busy, but I have to set a deadline on this. If you can get back to me in 7 days, I can include you, plus a photo and biolinks (if you have them handy great, if not I can go digging).
Thanks[Your First Name]
