Who doesn't want to get connected with big names in their domain? The connection provides more attention of targeted visitors and earns recognition for you. There are many ways to grab attention of seasoned bloggers. If implemented carefully, you can easily create a strong connection with famous bloggers. Let's see how to achieve this and create a strong network of fellow bloggers.
Link To Their Posts
This is one of the best ways to get noticed by famous bloggers. Write a pillar post and link to their masterpiece within that post. Repeat it whenever you find there is a scope of linking to one of their gems. They will eventually notice it through trackbacks. In this way, in future whenever you will directly interact with them, your blog and your name will immediately click in their mind and they may tweet about your blog or a link to your blog post.
Follow On Social Media Sites
Social Media has opened tremendous opportunities to grow your blog and to interact with like-minded peers. Follow the big guns on popular social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkdIn. This is an excellent way to directly interact with them and to grab their attention. Your direct conversation on twitter will attract the attention of large number of followers of the famous blogger.
Send Guest Posts
This is one more way to get connected with seasoned bloggers. Write a killer post and mail your article requesting to appear as a guest blogger. Remember, your post should be of high quality and ideally should be a problem solver article. In this way you will increase your chances to appear as a guest blogger on their blog. This is an excellent way to connect with them and to leverage their strong network of readers and fans.
Provide Solution To a Problem
As I said earlier, sending a problem solver guest article increases its chances of being published on their blog. Similarly, keep an eye on their activity on twitter, Facebook and similar services and whenever they fire any question to their audience, provide a prompt and unique solution to their question. This is probably one of the quickest and best methods to get noticed by famous bloggers.
Patience Is Virtue
And last but not the least is patience. Famous bloggers have very busy schedules and gets tons of mails from their readers and fans. Sometimes, they may not respond to your mail about your general query or a request for guest blogging. The key is to never lose hope and keep trying. In this whole process make sure you do not bombard them with repeated mails.
