Submit Your Articles to Survey Analytics and Build Your Brand Today!

Over the last few months, you’ve probably noticed that our Survey Analytics blog articles come from a variety of experts. We’re not just about market research or online surveys — we’re about customer feedback, customer experience and so much more.

We’d love to have more of our readers become our guest experts!

Guest Posting is A Great Way to Get Your Brand and Expertise Visible

Used to be that simply getting your blog listed on another “popular” blog’s blogroll was enough to build traffic to your site. These days, that doesn’t seem to be as popular as guest posting.

At a time when good content is hard to come by – guest posting is a wonderful way to get your brand and expertise noticed by others. Think of it as an “advertorial”; an educational ad that you post for FREE on a related blog or site.

You may have noticed that I’ve been using guest posts recently to feature services and tools that my readers might find interesting. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved. The guest writer gets some added visibility to a new audience and I get interesting content written by an expert in a particular area.

If you’re a new blogger or have recently gone into business, try reaching out to other bloggers in a related industry and ask if you can post articles on their site.

Hints for Great Guest Posts

  1. Educate – Don’t Sell.This is an opportunity to educate a new audience about your expertise. You are selling by virtue of being included in the blog. There is no need to over-do it.

  2. Keep it Conversational.Keep your tone friendly and conversational. Pretend that you are sitting at a bar with a friend and just sharing information that they will find helpful.

  3. Offer links and examples. Show examples of what you are talking about so that the audience can get a sense of context. In other words – help them choose.

  4. Provide an “About the author” bio. Create a super-short About the Author bio to include with your article. It should contain no more than two sentences about who you are and what you do as well as a link. It’s best to provide a link to a blog where they can read other articles – but a web site will do.


Now you’re ready to start promoting yourself, your company and your brand. Reach out to your favorite blogs and contribute content – you’ll be surprised at how open people are to learn about what you offer.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.
