Harness the power of cross promotion, can we?
This thought has been coming to my mind quite often. We all are working towards the same goal of setting up a successful online business and under the able guidance and support of Kyle, Carson, Jay and others in the WA team, we are busy creating our niche websites, writing excellent blogs (at least trying to be excellent but for sure improving by each passing day), identifying keywords, and promoting the site in order to attract traffic.
While on promotion, email, facebook, twitter, Google+, pinterest and any other such external platform are great vehicles, are we not missing out the huge WA community itself? With 100,000+ members, almost each having at least 1 website addressing 1 niche, would it not be a great idea to cross-promote websites?
For instance, I have a website addressing the 'haircare' niche and there may be many others. If my website focuses on one aspect of haircare, say, caring for dry hair and someone else's website addresses another aspect, say, hair loss, would it not benefit both of us to promote each other's website which actually complement each other? This can be done by way of a link to the other's site placed on our site:
"Hey, in order to get a great insight on causes and treatment for hairloss, look into email@example.com"
Can this be done or is it a 'thumbs down' thought?
