Following My Own Advice Brings In Traffic

Last Update: June 24, 2015

Hey WA community,

Some of you may remember my last blog post that talked about telling companies that you're writing reviews about them. If not you can check it out here:

Recently I wrote a list post on 9 sites that pay you to shop, which you can see here:

After posting I went on Twitter and reached out to all of the companies, just letting know that they had been mentioned. You can see an example below:

I reached out to all the companies and got a few favorites and retweets, but the particular tweet from above lead to a post on twitter and Receipts Hog's FB page that has over 20,000 likes.

As you can see the post received 15 shares a bunch of likes, but that's not even the best part.

Just from reaching out to the company I received over 600 visitors, 22 email subscribers, and even a few WA Free memberships from this FB post.

Companies want to hear from you and love to see people talking about them. Make sure to reach out and you will get rewarded. This doesn't just work for my niche, but could be used in any niche out there!

Thanks for taking the time to read!

I never thought about it quite like that but I do know that I need to spend more time on the social side of the internet and spend more time learning social promotion. This was very good insight and motivation for me to spend more time on the social avenue. Thank you.

I will say that your primary focus should be creating content and working on your site, but it only takes a few minutes to share with companies after you post so it's a good habit to get into!
