This post is your appetizer.
If you want the full meal buy my blogger outreach eBook.
We’ve dissected how to do blogger outreach effectively this past week. Today you get a nifty little guide for doing blogger outreach right, from mindset steps to practical tips.
Being a connected blogger turns struggle into sweet success. Doing blogger outreach right changes failure into fun, freeing, blogging delicious-ness, like a succulent, sugary nectarine ya sink your fangs into.
Oh yeah; you’re get more traffic and bigger blogging profits through effective outreach too.
Imagine successful results. Feel that picture. Step into the image. Then multiply the results and feelings exponentially. This is what it feels like if you patiently, persistently follow these steps.
The brilliant New Zealand skies are calling me guys. Bright blue day here. So let’s dive in.
1: Be Generous
Being generous sets all else into motion. Thinking greedily of yourself and your needs creates a terrible or non existent outreach campaign. No way to get connected if you disconnect yourself from generosity, right?
Focus on having fun helping people. Dig deep. Think of others and how to serve them. No worries; even though you aren’t self-serving by being generous, being detached from your own traffic and profits needs makes you attractive to blogging buddies. Said blogging buddies make your dreams come true by promoting you, endorsing you and serving you, if you are super generous.
Be generous. Embody a kindly energy for your outreach campaign.
2: Comment Genuinely on Blogs
Publish 2-4 paragraph, genuine comments on blogs. Blog comments are outreach gold because:
- anybody can publish a helpful comment on any blog
- comments are content, meaning you add content to a post, which search engines love
- comments make a boring blog a raving, roaring, party-like community.
If you are confused about how to write effective, enticing, powerful blog comments I wrote an eBook to give you a full blue print for a rocking blog commenting campaign.

3: Promote Bloggers on Twitter
Read a post. Publish a genuine comment. Hit the retweet button.
Retweeting other bloggers generously is the simple way to make blogging buddies and to nab more retweets yourself.
What you give freely multiplies quickly.
4: Facebook Share Blog Posts
Read a post. Share it on Facebook. Same deal as tip #3; give freely, receive easily. Except you make buddies through Facebook and gain traction on that platform.
5: Open Your Blog to Guest Posting
Open your blog to guest posting.
Be generous with your platform.
Form lasting blogging bonds.
Be an outreach dynamo by connecting fellow bloggers with your community. And vice-versa.
Accept only quality work from trusted, generous bloggers, of course. Hundreds of bloggers pitch me on guest posts; a few land guest posts here.
Be helpful by accepting guest posts but make sure the post reeks quality, originating from a trusted blogging source.
6: Email Assistance
Email fellow bloggers asking how you can help them.
Do they need a retweet? Or blog comment? Or Facebook Share?
Connected bloggers are generous bloggers. Be generous and use 1-to-1, personalized emails to make your way into fellow blogger’s hearts.
7: Ask to Solve Problems on Social Media
I love asking bloggers to solve their problems via Facebook and Twitter.
Publish an update to hit on reader pain points. I ask if anybody needs blogging help. Bloggers respond. Outreach commences.
Clients, customers and loyal readers flow from these helpful asking sessions.
Ask 1 question every few days. Be of service. Be generous. Build your outreach campaign on a granite like foundation.
8: Toss Salt over Your Shoulder 3 Times Daily
But stretch rotator cuffs first.
9: Email Bloggers Gratitude
Click email addresses via the blog comments field in your backoffice. Send grateful emails to blog commentors, thanking them for commenting on your blog.
Engage in this simple act to make friends and to establish a loyal, loving community.
Befriend your fellow engaging blogger to grow your blogging buddy network quickly.
10: Hire Buy or Endorse
Hire bloggers, buy blogger products or endorse bloggers to reach out with love.
Cori Ramos of Not Now Mom’s Busy noted how she bought my blogger outreach eBook yesterday. I shall be indebted to her for the next 35 lifetimes. I love my friends. I love my customers. I love my clients.
Hire bloggers to coach you or to provide freelance services for you. Build strong bonds. Endorse bloggers. Publish glowing reviews on their eBooks. Showing love by digging into your pocketbook or by publishing a positive review forms powerful bonds with your fellow blogger. Generous bloggers are memorable bloggers.
11: Respond to Your Comments
Be alive. Engage readers by responding to your blog comments within a few days.
Respond to befriend readers. Reach out (or, outreach) by proving you’re listening. Share your thoughts to address problems, to support your readers and to assist them. Be a shoulder to cry on. Dole out some tough love. Just respond to all blog comments. At least until you receive a deluge of comments daily.
12: Keep Meeting New People
Keep meeting and befriending new people daily.
Fortify old bonds by serving friends. Build new bonds by making new friends through the above strategies.
Slow down. Calm down. Do not rush desperately in a mad blitz to network. Calmly, patiently but energetically meet new folks daily. Expand your reach. Help more readers.
What tips can you add to this list?
