Promote when You are a Guest
By Tasha Turner
Always say thanks when someone guests you on their blog (tweet this)
If you are a guest on someone’s website/blog it is really important that you promote your appearance and thank them for having you. Otherwise they are unlikely to be interested in having you again. For example: If I post a link on your page saying “hey I got your post up” it is not hard for you to comment “hey thanks looks great”. Nor is it hard for you to comment on the post or share it from there. This is the same for author spotlights, interviews, anything except a review (well if I post it to your page you could say thanks).
When I’m hosted on someone’s blog I do a quick except on my blog and link over to their blog in addition to FB and tweeting about it and tagging them in the shares and tweets. Why? To drive traffic to them as a thanks for having me.
Remember social networking is about building relationships. This means thanking people when they do something nice for us and when we can helping their visibility as well as our own.
- Anyone have other thoughts on this?
- Does anyone do anything to make their host feel special for having them on their blog?
- If you don’t do this why not?
