    Hi there,

    I am a marketing manager and I am seeking to advertise in your blog. Your blog subject is relevant to my product, as it is innovative business software – issue tracker and task management.

    We have a solid background, as our founders have already driven two global companies to success, starting from scratch. So we have strong hope that other products for business, that we have in the pipeline, will be important to the industry.

    Would you be interested in writing about us?

    Hello There,
    My name is Tess and I’m a Professional Blogger. I have more than 3+ yrs of experience writing for the web and have covered plenty of interesting topics.
    I came across your blog and was wondering if you would be interested in allowing me to write relevant & useful topics on your blog at no cost.
    At this point of my writing career, I simply want to get more visibility for my writing and I will write for free as long as you are fine with me adding a small author bio section following the blog post about myself.
    Please let me know if you are interested and if you’d like for me to submit a sample blog post for your approval.
    Thanks a bunch,
