Our blog on globalityconsulting.com is relatively new (but well promoted) and within few months we have more than 50 requests for guest post submission.  Unfortunately, we were not able to accept any of them due to several reasons, which we will cover in our current blog.

Hey there,

We have been reading the articles on ur website and are very impressive with quality of information.

We have a team of copywriters who specialized in writing articles on such topics and would like to write an original article for you to use on your website – this article will not be used anywhere else on any Internet.

In exchange all we ask is that we can have one or two links within the body of the article back to one of our internet sites.

If are very interested in having us write article of your website please just let me know and we could be more than happy to one written for you within a weeks. Also let me know if you have more blogs for Guest Posting.

Regards,
Andrew
