build blogging relationships

At the beginning of the career, every writer who has approached a platform to try to set up his work would have faced this problem once. Assume that you have an article ready. You have approached a great medium to publish your article on their platform. You are eagerly waiting for their response, but you didn’t get any. The response was not even close to lukewarm. The time doesn’t tick, the needle doesn’t budge. You feel you are up to a major standstill. And then, you start wondering what really went wrong. Why was your article/post not chosen? So, you start pondering what you should do to deal with this situation. Try marketing your skills and develop a good relationship with the publishers (I know… I know… You will say that you know this already).

To deal with this situation, I bring to you few of the best sieved and effective bullet points that will help you spread your wings.

  • Quality Is The King:

No matter how difficult it is to wait patiently for your article to be published, its content is what will help you gain the trust of the publisher in the beginning. Work really hard on your post, do extensive research on it’s every aspect and use a precise language. Use flow charts, diagrams, and apt examples to make your article self-explanatory. It will save the editor a lot of time. Develop your voice and personality through your work. Keep your work authentic and simple, yet powerful. The quality of the content is what represents a writer, whether it is the first article or 51st.

  • Keep A Tab:

Always try to understand what the publisher wants. Read the other posts on the website to understand the requirement of the publisher. Also, following him on social media will help you know the diversity of his thoughts. I’m not saying that you need to change your style of writing for a website or a publisher. In fact, the publishers are always looking for something unique and catchy. Knowing the publisher’s website and all the other attachments will help you perceive the core of thoughts. Know the company they keep.

  • Get Noticed:

Before your work gets noticed by the publisher, try to communicate with him through a medium other than your post. For example, if the publisher is on Twitter, send him positive comments on his posts you like. In case, you have a suggestion or an opinion about something he has written, do not hesitate to voice your thoughts too. And yes, be honest even if it scares you. Publishers make mistakes too. This is a good way to get noticed. Such ways of informal communication help build trust at both the ends.

  • Do Not Hesitate:

If you are confident about your post and are aware of the quality of its content, do not hesitate to approach a known publisher. Your work will speak volumes for you. Remember, the publishers were once beginners too.

  • Don’t Break The Chain:

Once you start communicating with a publisher, make sure that you are quick with the responses and give a prompt reply. The publishers know that you are a beginner and are not as busy as you pretend to be when you try to delay answering their email. If you begin writing regularly for a site, be there for it!

  • Impart Uniqueness:

This is with context with not just your writing, but also the way you advertise or market your content. Build your prowess through your social network and stand apart. Share internal tricks of the trades to start trending. Have a good count of followers and shares on the social networking sites. Create a strong network.

  • Cover The Keynotes:

The whole purpose of web curation is marketing and advertising to drive traffic towards the website and enhance sales, for both the parties. Make sure your articles are contributing factor to improving the domain authority of a website and better ranking in the page list. Also, make use of your contacts. Just as the back-links will benefit you, your social network circle should be beneficial for the website too. Be a fuel to their growth.

  • Be Of Service Other Than Your Posts:

Let’s consider a situation. The publisher has tweeted that he is looking for a costume store to shop for his 5-year-old daughter’s dress-up day. Here’s your chance. Be on it immediately and try to find the very best you can. Post a reply immediately. The publisher may not go the store you suggested, but he will surely appreciate your time and efforts. Use your own contacts to be more useful to them. Be more than just an email Id for your publisher.

  • Deal With Criticism:

Criticism is a bitter spoon of medicine that drives away a lot of troubles. Do not let criticism become a cause of miscommunication. Most of the publishers are way most experienced. Hence, take their suggestions and disapproval in the right taste. More importantly, do not let any negative comment demoralize you.

  • Build A Reputation:

Your social network will prove to be an effective tool in doing so. Involve in charities and event galas that are common between your publisher and you. And do plenty of that otherwise. That will surely keep you in a good state of mind and among good eyes.

  • Keep In Touch:

Your responsibility or task doesn’t end the moment your article is published. Talk to the publisher about the response, his opinion or if there is any need for improvement. When a publisher doesn’t respond, don’t panic and don’t hesitate to confirm whether or not he has received your email. A publisher has a lot to do, so the chances are he couldn’t revert to you. Make a productive participation.

  • Offer To Work For Free:

This is a good way to gain experience and the publisher’s interest in you. Prove your mettle in that given span of time. The harder you work, the better it will be for you in the long run. And there are chances that your publisher will be the initiator of a good word-of-mouth for you in his circle.

  • Keep It Private:

Once you develop a good rapport with a publisher, make sure you don’t do something silly and disrupt it. This initial phase is the time to prove your loyalty and dedication. Don’t let your efforts go in vain by doing something naive like referring your friend or giving away more time to some other site. Focus on maintaining the valuables you have than striving for something you don’t even have. Don’t abuse the system or misuse the trust.

  • Be Patient:

Anything new thing takes time to establish. It may become difficult to do so especially when you are surrounded by new offers from all the sides. After all, every publisher wants something unique or something that is popular. Resist wrong indulgence, otherwise, it will bring along its repercussions.

To sum it, you must understand that is it easy to aim for the stars but to begin from the scratch is difficult. Rome wasn’t built in a day and patience bears the sweets fruits. Keeping calm, maintaining quality and being true to yourself as well as your publisher are the secrets to a good establishment in the long run.

      That’s true, julien.

      A good name among the publishers and in your sector automatically outweighs the benefits of link-building strategy.

      Hence, the long term goal for any writer or a blogger should be to keep his arcs high with his quality content. He may not write frequently, but his work quality should strike down the time missed.

      Best wishes.
