Every blogger starts career alone but sooner or later he wants to start his own network of blogs or want to connect with successful and pro-bloggers, who can guide them or just to stay inspired.
It is always better to connect with other bloggers whom you think are ideal for you and who can give you a new twist to your blogging career.
You should never think that a blogger is successful only if he is earning a good income, he should be a nice person to work with.
Connecting with such a successful blogger might be a problem for a newbie, but there are few tips to attract your ideal blogger with whom you want to work or who can help you in your blogging career.
Everyone knows a difference between a Professional blogger and a part-time blogger. Professional blogger has to deal with lots of things like writing articles, promoting a brand, search engine optimization, networking, advertisement sells and many other activities. In the end, blogging is bread and butter for pro-bloggers.
6 Tips to connect with other bloggers:
1. Comment – First point of connection
Comment like crazy to meet more bloggers and expand your presence online. If you are quick to connect with many bloggers you eventually start to meet superstars of the blogging world.
This is not some magical, mystical secret, how to meet top shelf bloggers. Simply post comments on many relevant blogs each day.
Make each comment valuable. Drive-by’s like “Hi how are you great post!”, are not going to impress people. Use 1 to 2 full paragraphs to make your point.
These types of comments solidified my rep in the blogosphere. I no longer leave such lengthy comments only because I have too many guest posts, articles and post for my blogs to write.
2. Share Posts Aggressively
I am known for sharing posts like mad, both my own and posts by others. If you want to succeed in catching a popular blogger’s attention you better promote the stuffing out of yourself and your buddies. By promoting you, folks see you believe in yourself.
By promoting other people you grow your readership quickly because many of the people you promote return the kind act and promote you in return.
This is a big reason why I have over 24,000 followers on twitter. I retweeted people aggressively for many years before I saw these sizable numbers. Whatever you want, give it away.
Do you want traffic?
Help people to get traffic, and you will find yourself meeting more superstar bloggers as your influence and reach grows.
3. Know them properly
As I said, a successful blogger is not only one who can earn money by hook or crook. I came across bloggers who offered me to work with them but I never liked the way they use to work for making money online.
You must only connect to bloggers who have a passion to work and highly determined to achieve their goals in an ethical way; after all, it’s about your blogging career.
This is the key for getting noticed by successful bloggers. Ask them for help if you have any problems, one can ask them about their blogging career and how to go ahead in blogging career.
However it is always better to communicate when they are free and therefore one should ask which is good time to contact with them.
5. Implement their advice
Asking questions with your ideal bloggers is not enough. They will only help you if you will implement their ideas. If successful bloggers share blogging secrets with you and when you give them good results, they will be glad that they played their part in your journey to a successful blogging career.
6. Understand their Time Value
Most of the blogger once connect with pro-blogger tries to talk to them every time they see him/her online. Understand the value of their time and with pinging him every time you might be making him delete you or block you from the list.
Most of the people think that such bloggers are Egoistic and impolite. Truth is being a professional blogger is not easy, and one finds it hard to give you all the time.
So when you get a chance to interact with them, try to ask only important questions, which answer you can’t find on the web. Being professional you can win anyone heart.
This is normal human psychology and I’m sure it will work for you too.
These are very basic things to know when it comes to connecting with successful bloggers. Just remember to be polite and professional while communicating and be passionate to work on tips provided by successful bloggers.
