Getting Links From Business And Trade Organizations


 Getting Links From Business And Trade Organizations

A lot of people think that organic link building is a slow and tedious process. This is probably due to the fact that most online marketers don't have the time or resources to search for links from other sites, ask for them, and build those websites into their own marketing channels.

But this couldn't be further from the truth! There are plenty of ways you can go about achieving more links without breaking a sweat. Here are some tips:

1. Use your contacts in work and business organizations (for example in sales or marketing) to reach out and contact people who you work with, know, or may be able to help you get the links you're looking for; 
2. Look at your existing client base and people you have worked with before. Try to get links from the organizations that they belong to;
3. Try a little guerilla marketing and talk to people about what you do, what your business is about, and how these businesses can be better off by linking to your site. Use these simple networking tips  to make it easier for you.
4. Talk about the topic of your site with people in forums or comment threads, and see if they can link back to their site as well.
5. Get involved in Social Media! I've covered this topic before on this blog but I will leave a few links below for those who want more information on the subject:
6. Take a look at where the traffic is coming from and see if there are any business or trade organizations that could link back to you. Add those to your list.
7. Have a company newsletter? E-mail people about your site and work, let them know that you are working on something interesting, and ask them if they can help you get the word out.
8. Use Groups in Facebook; try LinkedIn Groups; try Meetup groups in your get the picture!  There are plenty of ways to get the job done, so no excuses!
9. For those of you who have blogs, see if any of your trade groups or business organizations are accepting guest blogging.
10. While you're at it, send in a PR package to journalists and see if they can be interested in the story you have to tell.
11. And finally...get out there and meet people!  Go to trade shows, conferences, or events that deal with your industry (or industries related to yours) and meet people who work for the companies that could help you get the links you want.
I hope you found this article to be at least a little helpful. I think most of us would like to get more links from other sites, but we find ourselves too busy and distracted to do so. What I'm about to show you is a method of quickly building links that anyone can use!
The same process applies whether you're looking for links in the SEO world or trying to link your website up with people who may have a relationship with your industry or company as well. If you've been working hard on your site, then it should be well-positioned within the search engines and still not getting many visitors. I promise you this process works and you will see results very quickly if you adopt it.
Follow these steps and it can yield great results for any site. So, take action now and reap the benefits of all of your hard work!

Author: Greg McGovern is CEO of Pre-Paid Legal Services Magazine , an industry publication with hundreds of thousands of readers per month. His job is to keep the readers up to date with what's going on in the industry and to also work with companies all over the world to help them get more traffic from their sites. Greg is a popular keynote speaker and has spoken at numerous events and conferences.
In his search for links, Greg found that he wasn't getting many of them from the sites with which he wanted to be linked. He was tired of paying for links, was frustrated that he wasn't getting many on his own site, and was looking for a way to get more links.
He looked at what others were doing and saw some crazy methods being used by companies in other industries. Companies were paying people money to place their websites on people's directory lists so they could get more traffic. They were paying people to write articles for their sites because they provided free press releases or references in the article itself. They were paying people to link to their sites on their site or other sites because they opened the link.
So, Greg took his own page and tried all of these crazy things and it worked. He got more links than he ever thought possible in such a short period of time. So, he decided to share his method with other companies and with the Internet community as a whole. Greg shares his secrets in this article and then gives you, my fellow entrepreneurs, various examples of how to do this yourself.

Conclusion I hope these examples have taught you a little something about what to do with your earned links. Now we come to the end of this article and I think it's fair to say that most of us have been holding our breath every time we see an email from Google that says: "Your site is no longer in the index...please remove this link". After all, how can you build links if Google won't give them to you? The answer can't!
