I wanted to share with you a little secret ninja trick that you can implement right away in your online business. Have you ever thought about how YOU can get one of the guru’s in the industry to leave a comment on YOUR blog post? It can take as little as 5 minutes to implement. No joke. I have broken it down into 5 simple steps for you.
1. Find some interesting content created by a guru in the industry. This can be an article, video or even one their blog posts you found of value and want to share it. You could search for Hubpages, Squidoo pages, YouTube and Facebook, to name a few. Another great resource to finding great material being posted by the leading experts is MLMURLS.
2. Create your blog post, but change the heading to something different. Not so different it loses the effect. You could use their wording, but change it up a bit so it’s not exactly the same. (you don’t want to blatantly steal their headline)
3. Your first paragraph outlines what you liked about the content. And in that paragraph you want to link back to their URL where you found the information.
4. Your second paragraph you want to share what you like about the author of the content your sharing.
5. VERY IMPORTANT STEP: Go back to your blog post as you were a new visitor to your site and click the link that you set up in your first paragraph.
That’s it. You may be wondering why step 5 is so important and what clicking the link does? Once you click the link, sometimes it will alert the author that you shared their content and they will come to your blog to see what you wrote. Or they check their traffic stats to see where their visitors are coming from and your information will be there sparking their attention. Since you are essentially sending them free traffic and you have wrote a nice piece about them, they may be inclined to leave you a comment thanking you for sharing their information.
