Consider adding a viral share button to blog posts or download pages. If you have a free ebook or some great information you’re giving away, encourage people to access it by sharing the link to your page!
6. Embeddable Formats
Create videos, slideshares & graphics that people can embed in their own sites and link back to you. Webmasters are always looking for great content, so make it easy for them!
7. Free gifts – Paying it Forward
I know it’s the industry ‘norm’ to ask for an optin to get your free stuff. But every now and again, offer an awesome report or downloadable app, or an open source plugin etc, that will get people sharing all over the shop!
8. Blog & Video Commenting
Get involved in the conversation. Comment on others blogs and YouTube channels. Whilst many blogs have comments set to no follow, you will begin to build a relationship with the webmaster and other followers. Users may click on your links or profile picture to learn more about you. You will begin to gather your own followers and fans, who will read your great content, share it and link to it!!!
