There are certain steps/processes to be followed to perfectly pitching of guest posts:

To make our content reach to a wide audience we have to find the best hosting blog or website. To make our posts acceptable we need to find the proper kind of posts that to be posted by the host. It will give an idea about the theme of the host blog and will make pitching easy.
Sharing the work of the host blog on twitter or other social platforms mentioning his/her username will help to communicate with them and we will no longer be stranger for them. This may be used as a strategy.
Making our content attractive is another way to attract people who will click on the backlinks.
After doing the survey of the host blog we need to find the right time for posting approach, sometimes host is looking for guest posts or he/she replies to our comments on his/her blog.
Submission of posts is very confusing. The solution to this problem is to keep track of the host blogger. If they use longer posts we should follow the same or if they use a lot of images we can use that trick too.
