In this case, I just delete the automated email. Hopefully someday the auto-emailer person will browse to the contact form and read what to do next about guest blog posts.
So there you go. Don’t use automation software to post comments all over the web that don’t make sense and don’t auto-email people to see if they accept guest posts.
It’s much better to keep your reputation intact and build your trustworthiness by actually providing great comments and searching for guest post opportunities. Doing this slowly over a long period of time (like growing a business) will reward you and go much farther in the long run. What a novel ideal.
What do you think? Have you used automation software for promoting websites? Tell us all about it in the comments.
