Interested in learning Social Media strategies or to improve your copywriting or blogging skills? Have questions? We’re waiting to hear from you!

The most effective ways to contact Gail is (in order of effectiveness):

  • Skype: GrowMap – best way to make sure I see it and so you know the status of your request. I’m the only GrowMap there.
  • Use the contact form below because what you submit there is flagged for greater visibility and less likely to be deleted by a spam filter.
  • @GrowMap on Twitter – if you DM send a regular tweet to let me know to go find your DM. (And if you know a good way to block auto-DMS  I want to hear from you!)
  • Email is currently problematic. If you email to growmap at this domain, please follow up by Skype or Twitter or phone. You can also use the contact form below as those get flagged and I am more likely to see them. If you prefer send a regular email and just let me know you did using one of these other methods. I get far too much email and find a large percentage of emails never get delivered. See Closed Loop Communications.


Are you a business interested in having bloggers write about and recommend you? Does your business currently appear on the first page of the search engine results for your best keyword phrases (or do you not even know how someone would be searching for you)?

Would you like to collaborate with influential bloggers in your niche who already have high quality blogs and influence on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, etc. and influence in blogs related to your business?

You’ve come to the right place. For years we have been connecting with the very best bloggers and working together to support each other’s content and efforts. What we do can now benefit your small local or online business too. Contact me using the form on this page for more details. There ARE bloggers willing to work with you regardless of your current available budget.

For more information on Blogger Outreach including Types of Blog Outreach Programs see Blog Outreach Services. For rates see the Hire GrowMap tab.


Yes, we love guest posts! Whether you are already one of our regular collaborators or you just found us, do contact us about publishing your guest post or writing a post for you. Our preferred method is to provide you with author access on this and other blogs we manage and have you create your post directly in the blog. This way you can better optimize how your post appears and add images.

Be sure to include links to your blog and/or content you
have written with your request to submit guest post(s).

We DO NOT limit links to one or two – we LOVE links. Please do add links to any related posts you have written or recommend that add additional information to the post and link to those you write about and recommend. Feel free to add mouseover text to any and all links. Do please include at least one link each to your blog, your Twitter account, and to any other significant source of information you wish to share so that our readers can more easily find out more about you.

If you offer a product or service, DO mention it in your bio information at the end of your post or in the introduction at the beginning of your post. (You can write the intro or I will write one for you.)  If you wish to write a post about your business or service, contact me first to discuss how that information might most interest our readers.

Are you interested in higher visibility? No problem; we have a process for that that starts with an interview about you or your business on MurrayNewlands’ Marketing Blog , a post on GrowMap all about you, and supporting posts on additional marketing and niche related blogs. Contact me for further details.

Please limit comments on this page to any issue related to contacting us, guest blogging or blog outreach / blogger outreach. Thank you.

  1. Hi bloggers, publishers, marketers and website owners,

    I am contacting you to let you know that we’ve released Nelio A/B Testing v.3.3 focused on WordPress publishers and bloggers. (

    Nelio A/B Testing ( is a native Conversion Optimization service for a WordPress site like yours that will ultimately help you better understand your visitors and increase the revenues.

    The service allows to A/B test (also known as split test) alternatives of any element of a WordPress site to determine which version best achieves marketing goals. Easily create two or more alternatives of any page, post, or theme in a WordPress site and let out service to automatically evaluate which one converts better (where a conversion could be a site visitor making a new purchase, a subscription to a mailing list, or a visit to a specific page on the site). Essentially, Nelio A/B Testing can help to convert the site visitors into real customers.

    The major improvements of the release 3.3 includes is that it also includes A/B Testing of widgets and post headlines. No other A/B Testing plugin in the WordPress market offers something like that.

    I am sure that you’ll like this new version!

    Please, do not hesitate to contact us if you need any additional information.

    Thanks for your time and best regards,

  3. Question: What kinds of topics may we choose for guest posting? I’ve done 2 or 3 guest posts in the past on other IM sites, but they’ve both been pretty limited in scope. What topics can we cover here?

    Dear Ms. Gardener,
    I am just following to find out whether you had a chance to see my posting from last week. Ana Hoffman of TrafficGenerationCafe whom I follow has suggested that I should contact you. I started a new company, GetUsSocial helping small business discover the next generation of ‘Word of Mouth’ via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn…I don’t consider ourselves as Bloggers although we have a blog that we try to use to provide valuable content to our clients. I’ve been trying to explore some collaboration opportunities but the common theme that I hear my worldwide Alexa ranking being too low which does not surprise me because I am not trying serve worldwide. I don’t even target the whole US. We are primarily working in 10 States and Colorado is our focal point where we have Alexa Ranking of 4000.
    Anyways, I apologize for another long post and I hope that you will see this one.
    Thank you for your time.

    • Hi Nezih,

      Where was it? This is the first posting of yours I recall ever seeing. I don’t worry about Alexa ratings because everyone starts somewhere and I’m not buying advertising from you. :-)

      The best way to connect with me is on Skype or Yahoo! Instant Messenger (both free). The next best way is by sending a regular tweet to @GrowMap. (If you DM please send a tweet letting me know to go look.)

      If you don’t have Skype or Yahoo! we can also use the chat functions in Facebook or Google + so just let me know when you’re about and we’ll connect. I keep strange hours so I can connect with people all over the world so I’m sure we can find a time to “meet” online.
