Discovering the Secret to Growing a Power Blog
What’s the secret behind creating a breakthrough blog?
Exposure. But not just any will do. In every niche, there is an inner-circle that is comprised of the leaders in that arena. Think of all of the big-name players in blogging: Brian Clark, Darren Rowse, Chris Brogan, Sonia Simone and others. These are the people that shape the niche space itself. And to be affiliated with them is the secret to quick success.
Guest blogging is the one tool that was identified as a powerful method to help promote your blog. If you’re not getting enough traffic, write as a guest for a blog that is. Ask around, you may be surprised at the results you get.
But connecting with these people is easier said than done. They’re certainly not going to seek you out, so it’s important to be proactive. Get involved in their activities. Try to pattern your actions to theirs. Eventually, like a Venn diagram, your circle will intersect with their inner-circle.
