Ever written a great blog post which you thought is perfect and wonderful just to find out that there is no one actually linking back to your blog posts? A good blog post should by right attract a lot of links back to your post giving you some good quality backlinks and traffic right? Well the answer is no, a good blog post is only half way there. While most people are going to tell you that content is king, you need to shift the way you think just for a little bit. What will actually get you more backlinks these days are not just quality content anymore. This is because the entire internet is crawling with good quality content and being great with your content is no longer enough.
Hence, in order to get noticed, you will actually need to be connected. That’s right folks, it’s not what you know these days, but it is more about who you know game. Ultimately, knowing the right people and getting on their good side will get you more backlinks. Here are a few ways to improve your status with other bloggers.
The importance of Networking.
It is no surprise that the person with the most connections on Facebook will rise to fame faster than anyone who could come up with the best Facebook post. In the social era today, there if you have a lot of connection and friends, you are someone important. If you’ve got no friends then you are not going to be as popular and you are going to have a hard time trying to make it big.
In the modern marketing world, it has become apparent that while your product, content or service is important, the money does not come from these efforts however. What your money will come from ultimately is your traffic and conversions. One can only do so much to tweak your conversions, the traffic will come from various sources and one of the easiest ways to get traffic is funnel them from other people. This is where your network and relationship with other people within your niche will come from. Ironically, those who do not acknowledge this fact will lose out. Therefore, you should be spending as much time on building your networking as you would do for your business and you will see your business grow exponentially from there onwards.
How to grow your network?
Now that we know just how important it is for bloggers who want their blog post to get noticed and linked back, the question now lies in how you can grow your network properly. One of the best ways to start a good relationship with other fellow bloggers is to contact them via email directly. Now you won’t be just sending a quick email saying ‘hi’, instead you will be asking them an irresistible question. You will send them an email with a subject headline regarding their website and a question that will always get you an answer. You can ask them questions about their product or any error that you encountered or you can send them a nice testimonial.
When you are able to get them to respond to your email, you can start getting to know each other more. Now you are not trying to build the relationship based on normal friendship terms, instead you will try to build a business relationship instead. Ask them about their projects and tell them what you have been doing so far and then slowly move into a potential JV with them.
The next thing you can do is to constantly leave great and memorable comments. Try not to miss out on every single one of their post. But be sure not to appear as spammy as well. What you need to do is to become their greatest fan and they will surely try their best to help their biggest fan in return. Another great way to start a good business relationship with them is to offer to interview them. This will get you to work together on a quick project and help you connect with each other more. Now the important thing here is that you will need to do most of the work and make sure that you leave nothing to chance. Be well prepared so that they will think highly of your work ethics and the result of the interview.
Give first before you receive.
One of the oldest tactics in the game of persuasion is the law of reciprocity. You must first be the giver before you can become a receiver. Here’s the thing, when you are constantly giving out value to another person, they will without a doubt feel indebted to you. When this happens, more often than not, when you are for their help, you will get it with ease. Therefore the first thing that you should be doing is to try and be the person that is on the losing end first. Things will even out pretty soon and you will then be able to get the reward that you wanted.
When all of this is done properly (to as many bloggers that can make an impact to your posts) you can be sure that your every blog post will get a lot of links back and traffic. While this is not an easy path, it is a surefire way to succeed. Improve on your network, and your blog will definitely grow exponentially.
