1 Common Blogger Outreach Mistake

April 19, 2018

 

blogger outreach mistakes

 

You may enjoy blogger outreach on some level but trying to understand how to do it right can be a frustrating experience.

 

This common boo boo noted in the video trips up bloggers; me included.

 

I made this mistake recently. Lesson learned.

 

You may be spending a bit too much time in the wrong spots like I was.

 

Reaching out to and befriending rocking bloggers feels incredibly fun, freeing and rewarding. Like a big old blogging party.

 

The fruits of blogger outreach are so sugary sweet:

 

  • you’ll make tons of fun-loving blogging buddies
  • you’ll be a connected blogger
  • minstrels will sing songs honoring you and your exploits
  • you’ll hire folks to toss salt over your shoulders thrice daily at competitive rates
  • traffic increase? hell yeah
  • your blogging profits will slowly and steadily increase

 

But you want to honestly address this mistake and own it – if you’re making it – to move in a different, prospering, more effective and smarter direction, to do blogging outreach right.

  2. That is a wise dude Hassaan!

  3. Wake up call for me Monna. I will tag you soon buddy; Live videos are going bye-bye for a while LOL. Thanks my friend.

  4. Hey Ryan,

    You are right on target with this. BG Jenkins and I were just talking about this same thing last night. We are spending too much time on social media and not enough connecting and adding value to our blogs.

    It happens before you realize it. For example, it’s almost 12pm EST here and I have yet to make it off of Facebook. I hate to leave so many unanswered good mornings but it looks like we are going to have to do that. Not ignore everyone completely, just create a happy percentage to social and more to blogging and visiting other blogs.

    Thanks for the lesson that I’m afraid we will all have to learn to watch from time to time.

    Hi Ryan, you cannot be more accurate on this one mistake that bloggers make – spending more time on social media than on own real estate. Social media platforms are great for promoting your content, but the truth is that these platforms belongs to other people. So if something goes wrong, and they short down, what happens to you. For example, facebook is going through some crisis at the moment and many users are deleting their accounts.

    So, as you noted, invest time on your blog, and much more time on other blogs by blog commenting and guest posting.

    Thank you Ryan.

    Hi Ryan,

    I agree with you on owning the real estate, which is why I emphasize a lot on personal branding and finding the strength. Because once someone realizes these things, they step up and move toward creating something of their own.

    I started building my personal brand back in May 2014 — Now in 2018, I’m glad I did start focusing on that.

    A wise man once made me realize about building my personal brand when I went to his office to register my domain hassaankhan dot com, he said, “people don’t know the value of their name.”

    It just struck me. Later on, I read on Neil’s blog that personal branding is the next big thing. Then, I got so pumped up about launching my blog on my name and building a personal brand around that, and finally, I did it.

    The bottom line is that real estate is real. Please, guys, pay attention to what Ryan just said.
