Reach out to 10 people a day
Get into the habit of e-mailing random strangers with something of value for them. It really works.
For example, if you recently wrote a piece on “content marketing mistakes,” search and for people who have shared such similar content and tell them that you have made something similar and ask if they would like to take a look.
Once they say yes, proceed to tell them that it would make your year if they share it as well.
Get interviewed on other peoples’ podcast
Podcasters are usually looking for guests to interview, especially if they provide great value to their listeners.
Approach podcasters who are building their following and pitch to them that you would love to be on their podcasts and what are your strong suits and what you can talk about.
The more people know you, the easier it is for them to link back to you.
Broken link building
One of the methods I recommend is the Moving Man Method by Backlinko.
In short, the method comprises of 3 steps:
- Find sites or resources that have changed names, shut down, or moved. (An example Brian uses is Borders. Since they were a massive book chain in the U.S. that closed down, there were a lot of links pointing to them that ended up broken.)
- Find sites linking to the old page.
- Give them a heads up about their outdated link.
This method only requires you to make a link roundup of the best articles you read in your industry in the past week.
After this, you can pitch it to other notable sites stating you have drawn up a list that they can consider for their weekly roundup. You include your own inside in the roundup and be honest about it.
