Every blogger wishes to connect with superstars, but few know how to do it.
Scan your email inbox. Do you see what I mean? Most bloggers do a poor job of trying to connect with fellow bloggers. People try to make it all about them. In reality, making it all about the pro blogger you intend to impress makes the seismic impact needed to thrive online.
The desperate blogger goes about connecting with pros the wrong way; no, you cannot impress a successful blogger by desperately pitching your guest post, or be begging them to accept your guest post. To receive the immense benefits of becoming friends with an influential blogger, you must woo these folks in the prosper fashion. Consider drawing in pros based on being generous versus repelling pros based on your self-centered ways.
If you want more traffic than you can ever dream of you must think through your relationship building strategy to impress these folks. You can connect with a superstar blogger by following these 5 simple tips.
Comment like crazy to meet more bloggers and expand your presence online. If you are quick to connect with many bloggers you eventually start to meet superstars of the blogging world. This is not some magical, mystical secret, how to meet top shelf bloggers. Simply post comments on many relevant blogs each day. Make each comment valuable.
Drive-by’s like “Hi how are you great post!”, are not going to impress people. Use 1 to 2 full paragraphs to make your point. These type of comments solidified my rep in the blogosphere. I no longer leave such lengthy comments only because I have too many guest posts, articles and post for my blogs to write.
Share Posts Aggressively
I am known for sharing posts like mad, both my own and posts by others. If you want to succeed in catching a popular blogger’s attention you better promote the stuffing out of yourself and your buddies. By promoting you, folks see you believe in yourself. By promoting other people you grow your readership quickly because many of the people you promote return the kind act and promote you in return.
This is a big reason why I have over 40,000 plus followers on twitter. I retweeted people aggressively for many years before I saw these sizable numbers. Whatever you want, give it away. Do you want traffic? Help people to get traffic, and you will find yourself meeting more superstar bloggers as your influence and reach grows.
Guest Post like Mad
I write up to 1 guest post daily. I used to write 3 guest posts daily. Writing guest posts helps you strengthen relationships with superstar bloggers.
I have submitted guest posts to many authority blogs because I know the power in creating value for a large, targeted audience. It would probably take me a long time to grow my business through my blog alone but when I decided to guest post things happened quickly. I met more people than I could have imagined because I was exposed to hundreds of thousands to even millions of readers when you count how many guest posts I have written for some seriously big audiences.
Become a Superstar Blogger Yourself
Stop looking for blogging heroes. Become a blogging star yourself. Tie your blogging reason why to a fun, freeing motivator. Getting clear on your why lays the foundation for jaw-dropping blogging success.
Superstars are driven. Superstars push themselves and never rely on other people to make them a superstar. Sure, you might receive a nice break, such as an endorsement from a star, but if you really want to catch people’s attention blog like crazy, network like crazy, meet more people and you will become a star in your niche, quickly.
