Mastering the Art of LinkBuilding: By a Rookie
Being a solopreneur is challenging to say the least. I not only have to be the product and the customer development guy but I also get to wear the marketing hat as well.
One of the best investments I have made so far in my quest to become a link building master is the Point Blank SEO Link Building Course. You’re probably thinking… Prove it pal.
Ok you got it… Jon Cooper the brains behind this amazing course clearly and effectivley unfolds an effective “white hat” link building strategy from scratch.
First order of business: Competitor research - Jon laid out a simple strategy that works. He even offers a free tool that is exclusive for users of his course to do link analysis on competitors.
In my research I have noticed that there are a number Craigslist Alert Apps out of business. This was a no brainer… there had to be tons of links to these sites that were dead.
So I plugged in the expired url’s into Jon’s nifty little tool. I then sorted the results by Mozrank (Similar to Google Page Rank) Check out the screenshot below
￼I then studied the sample email templates Jon provided in his course for reaching out to bloggers and webmasters. I came up with what I thought was a relevant and personal email pointing out some broken links on her blog post as well as a tip for an awesome article she wrote on responsive sites. ￼
Not bad eh? You’re thinking big deal.. let’s see some results pal. ￼ BAM!
How’s that for a confidence booster! That is just a small sample of the success that I am having through Jon’s course for my new Craigslist Notifier App.
