Anytime an outside blogger blogs for a company or product, he or she is sharing that venture with a network which may have been previously unaware of the company’s products. Thus, the guest blogger will have introduced new followers to a product which may have gone unnoticed in their segment. Similarity, the blogger will have a new network which will accept him or her as an expert in a specific category which will increase the blogger’s base as well.
Considered as an Expert
Expertise is currency in the online world. True experts are few and far between and the internet is clamoring to find the next big authority on a subject. Employing a guest blogger is letting readers know that a person is an expert on a subject. This designation will only help your company and the guest blogger in the future.
Build Beneficial Relationships
Networking is always beneficial, only networking in today’s world has changed slightly from the networking of yore. Now people who are recognized as authorities and possessing professionalism are building relationships primarily through virtual means. This translates into a wider network with people who are willing to help a company reach the next level.
Unlock Business Opportunities
There are countless successful business opportunities which were created from guest blogging posts or through social media. All one needs to do is look at how we network, search for jobs or communicate with one another to understand that the majority of today’s opportunities will happen through virtual communication and contacts.

Although no one knows exactly how Google and other search-engines rank web pages, backlinks via shared networks, an expert blogging on a subject and relevance only help to increase a site’s validity in their algorithms.
