I always seem to be talking about being a generous servant, right? Help people. Be of service. Be generous. All are definitely keys to blogging success.
But how do you actually help fellow bloggers? No doubt, you feel confused as a newbie or struggling blogger. What can you do, to be of aid to bloggers? Imagine if someone taught you how to blog the wrong way. Imagine if someone never taught you how to blog, the right way. Either way, you’re in trouble.
I wrote this post to give you clear, actionable steps for helping bloggers so you can accelerate your blogging success. Take these blogging tips to the bank. Literally. Helping bloggers help you because giving freely leads to receiving generously. Think of bloggers with huge, rapidly loyal networks of bloggers surrounding them and supporting them. These folks simply helped bloggers generously for an extended period of time. Be that kinda blogger. Get lost in service. Follow these tips to position yourself to become hyper-successful.
1: Post a Genuine Comment on their Blog
Comments are content. Comments are genuine connections, lovely thoughts, social proof, and pretty much good money. Publish genuine comments on blogger blogs to help your fellow blogger. Leave a paragraph. Address bloggers by name. Sign off with your name. Good old fashioned blog commenting does the soul well. Plus, traffic and business flowing through a genuine blog commenting campaign benefit your bottom line. Stick to blogs from your niche. Target your blog commenting campaign.
2: Mention Them on Your Blog
Mentioning fellow bloggers on your blog is easy. Plus, it’s a fun way to help your fellow blogger. Give bloggers publicity, clout and a genuine boost in both business and traffic. Think of each mention as free advertising….because it is! I love it when bloggers mention or feature me on their blogs. Forget about the backlink juice. Small potatoes. I gain a shout out from a trusted blogger who endorses me to their community. What a good deal, right? Every mention or feature is an endorsement guaranteed to spread your success just a little bit more. Toss in how you make blogging buddies through this easy to use tactic, and you have something special to use, for your blogging growth, and for the growth of fellow bloggers.
Easy peasy. Simply retweet or Facebook Share your fellow blogger’s latest post on social media. All it takes is a few seconds. Nothing more. Each social share gives the blogger a bit more exposure and juice. Think of social media shares as glowing endorsements of a fellow blogger. Helping them helps you because sharing good content boosts your credibility. Never mind how each social share fortifies bonds between you and other bloggers. Some bloggers promote you in return on social sites, expanding your reach on Twitter and Facebook. Be generous. No blogger ever goes wrong by being generous, helpful and heck, by being a free giver. Give freely, receive easily.
There you have it, guys. As you can see, each tip is incredibly easy to put into action. But putting each tip into action for thousands of hours feels uncomfortable sometimes because you get forced to face your fears. Even I feel uncomfortable doing this stuff and I blogged for 15,000 plus hours. Relax. Be with fear. Feel it and release it. Proceed from a generous abundant energy.
