It’s Chris Rockett here, your friendly neighborhood tactics pimp! Today I want to talk to you about what’s going on behind the scenes for my music promotion projects.

Fix: After accepting an invitation to guest post, have a solid conversation with the blogger. Learn what his or her expectations are and what they are looking for in a guest post from you. That way there are no surprises when you submit your work.
