Top bloggers are always building a strong network around their brand. They promote their content frequently in order to gain extra exposure.

That way, They’ll be very well mentioned and hence acquiring tons of organic backlinks.

It’s the only way to constantly get organic traffic from visitors is to work hard in order to create a good list of subscriber and public audience.

Building a strong network is not all about other webmasters linking your website to theirs. It is also building relationships with other bloggers (webmasters).

That way, guest posting exchanging, link bait exchange or even cross promoting your fellow bloggers content becomes easier. Networking and building relationships are critical points in order for your website (blog) to succeed.

In This Post, What You Will Learn

What kind of mistakes to avoid before reaching out bloggers?

Identify top influencers from popular free platforms.

An easy way to get people to promote you content.

The Power of Influential Traffic!

When and if a top blogger helps you promote your content, you’ll be able to notice that your traffic is spiking like crazy. You can take this opportunity to grab some of their visitors coming into your website and convert them into subscribers.

It’s fine to be receiving tons of traffic from a single referral source. Because expert bloggers receive thousands of visitors monthly.

But here’s the thing, it really doesn’t matter if your site has large amount of traffic coming in or not.

It’ll be pointless if someone helps you promote your content but the traffic that comes in doesn’t convert (income). Remember, Leads are the key metrics.

Once your blog is up and running. Focus more on content creation and getting some exposure. Then you’ll be able to produce a great list of email subscribers in a few months if all goes well.

Cross promoting your fellow bloggers’ content is a great way to build high quality traffic. At least I would call this targeted traffic.

With targeted traffic, you should aim to convert 30% of the traffic into your subscribers instead of having 5000+ random traffic every month from everywhere around the internet (low conversion rate).

So yes, having great leads are way better than getting massive amount of traffic from several unknown sources because proper leads will have targeted audience driven to your blog.

What Mistakes To Avoid Before Reaching Out To Influential Bloggers

#1. Jumping Straight Into Conclusion

Well, you don’t have to connect with influential bloggers that are not in your niche just for the sake of reaching out.

Make sure you’re reaching out to marketers, entrepreneurs and influential bloggers of your niche. That’s the only Jumping Into Conclusionway you’ll be able to convert targeted audience into loyal subscribers.

Do that by commenting and sharing their blog post on Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks.

Analyze whether his or her website matches your requirements. Take some time to check out their website or blog and understand about their type of audience.

Then check whether their audience fulfil your website’s requirements? And this is an important point, does their audience like commenting on their blog post (articles)?

Because finding a good group of traffic that actually likes commenting would help your blog rank better in major search engines, update your blogs frequently, add value to your contents and so many more benefits.

These are the few essential points that you should pay attention to when analyzing their website or blog.

There is quite an amount of marketers and influential follow other influential bloggers (the REAL DEAL). So please be mindful when seeking them out, just make sure you’re reaching out to the correct people for the best results.

At the same time, make sure they are in your niche and they are the correct audience.

#2. Producing Low Quality Content For Your Website

If you’re in the blogging line, I’m sure you’ve heard the quote “Content Is King”. Yup, it’s completely true. Meaning whatever you produce has to be better than your competitors online in order for people to start noticing you.

Nowadays, there are just so many “low quality content” online aka articles and blog posts that everyone else have.

The beauty of content creation is that when you create something totally NEW and not some topic that everyone already has. You’ll be repeating whatever everyone has been using.

When your readers go through your blog, they’ll start to know that the blog is only just another blog. They’re looking for “Unique Content”.

Create something new, something your readers and the internet has never had. Or at least create content from a different point of view, insert your thoughts and perception. That way you’ll drive more traffic than you can imagine.

If you’re having a hard time brain storming for a topic to write, you can always reach out to top or influential bloggers.

Nobody will deny free traffic if given the opportunity. So these bloggers that you reached out to will give you their thoughts about a certain topic.

That way, you can write “unique articles” by using well known bloggers’ insight. I’ve seen some roundup articles like “How To Drive Traffic Personally From 30 Top Bloggers”. Readers will go crazy about this.

#3. Get Their Attention Before Asking For Anything Else

The proper way is to help people before hoping for some help in return. It’s a way to get their attention and then starting a conversation and finally building a relationship.

Trust me, this is a working formula, you can try other methods if you have some ideas but I’d rather you just use my technique to reach out to other webmasters.

First step is to get their attention. To do that, follow them on their social media profiles like Twitter, Facebook and others. It doesn’t matter which platform you use to reach out to them. The approach is the same and has been working fine for me.

Immediately after you follow them, select some good post of theirs and start sharing. A way to show them your appreciating their contents.

I know sometimes doing all these might seem a little tiring after some time, so people tend to skip these steps and leave some thoughtful comments on their blog.

Some people will get noticed by buying their products. I sometimes do that as well. Don’t worry, works fine too. But just make sure you get noticed.

But make sure the way of approach must seem nice. Don’t let them fell that you’re all about business.
