Stellar Posts Guaranteed to Boost Traffic, Social Shares and Sales
6. Poll the Experts
I have been approached a few times about my expertise either in search engine optimization or affiliate marketing. It's a really cool thing to have happen in your niche. It's a result of building your brand (branding) and creating yourself as an authority on the topic. (Oh, and some nifty social media marketing!)
Sites like Quora and Medium are great ways to establish technical type authority. Also, several Q&A websites can help as well as forums within your chosen niche.
Regardless, one of the many viral blog posts I have researched are really about approaching established authority authors and website owners. And, then polling them for information on their success. What makes them tick? What was the catalyst for them building their website? How to they view upcoming marketing trends in that niche? Etc, Etc.
YOU jot down some questions that you have pondered and perhaps others are seeking answers for.
Then, develop an email to approach folks within your niche. Then, develop a list of folks you feel are influencers within your niche. Then, double that number of folks on your list, because you're not going to receive a 100 % response rate.
Start out at the BOTTOM!
(I'm sure this is where I got the invite!)
But, begin with lesser known authorities. And, as you go along, you'll have a list of names to can mention to the larger ones. The big guys won't want to be outdone by their competitors! Yep, it's another emotional trigger that when used effectively can do wonders for web traffic!
Website owners, experts, authors, heck - ALL of us - love to see our names in print. Use that to your advantage.
Then, publish your post and highlight the names of the contributors. Approach them again and ask them to share it. I'm sure they will. I sure did!!!
Okay, this got WAY longer than anticipated! My apologies.
But, I hope you gained a few nuggets of information and I was able to get those "Creative Juices" flowing!
