After perusing The African Salesman blog for a while you may have noticed that a number of the articles we publish actually come from external sources. As the site has grown we have found that many of our visitors have useful information to share and the financial sector is so extensive that I am unable to cover every single topic on my own.

That is why I want to encourage everybody who visits The African Salesman to contribute to my blog if they have the time and useful information to share with our visitors. You can do this by using the contact forms on the site.

Of course, I don’t expect anybody to do anything for nothing, so I thought I would use this opportunity to make it clear why contributing to The African Salesman could be a good idea for you and your business.

It’s Free Advertising

I believe in making sure that credit is given where it is due. If you contribute to my blog, everybody should know who you are and what you bring to the table. That is why I offer each of our contributors the opportunity to create a short bio when they write for my website.

So how can this be useful to you? Well, if you write and publish your post here, your bio can be used to talk a little more in depth about who you are. If you own a business you can use this space to provide a link to your own website and talk about the services you are able to offer. If you operate your own blog, writing for The African Salesman allows you to get your words in front of an audience who may not be aware of you, meaning you can build your own audience to the point where you can start earning an income from your site.

Best of all, contributing to The African Salesman doesn’t cost you a penny. That means that you can consider your articles free advertising, because they allow you to show who you are and what you know to an audience that is ready and willing to hear it.

Our Audience

I have been running The African Salesman for a number of years now and the audience has grown steadily in that time. The site now attracts roughly 12,000 unique visitors every month, plus we have a loyal group of regular visitors who use the site as a hub for all of the financial information that they need to make decisions in business and their personal lives.

This means that whenever you write for my website you are gaining exposure amongst a large and targeted audience that really wants to hear about what you have to say. Because The African Salesman has stuck to the finance niche for as long as it has existed, the site’s audience is made up of people who are interested in the subject. They want to hear from others who are able to offer services and information related to it. If that sounds like you, then you can submit a guest post to my blog to take advantage of this opportunity.

You Want To Write

Breaking into writing content on the web is hard. I know, because I have done it myself. Setting up your own blog is a great first step, but you need to be able to offer useful and informative content that drives traffic to your site if you want to experience success.

The African Salesman offers you the chance to hone your skills so that you can apply them to your other writing projects later on. I offer detailed feedback in terms of what I want for my blog and, most crucially for budding writers, how it needs to be presented so that it can engage a large audience.

This feedback can help you develop your skills as a writer, particularly in terms of how to create content so that it appeals to a web-based audience. Furthermore, by writing for The African Salesman you can start to build a portfolio of content that offers you additional credibility when you write on your own blog. After all, being able to say that your work has been accepted on a site that attracts 12,000 unique visitors per month is a big feather in your cap and it will make people stand up and take notice.

What Do I Want?

All I want at The African Salesman is to be able to provide useful information to the site’s visitors. We cover a wide range of topics here, including:
