This post might make good required reading. I appreciate you sharing your expertise with me … much of it without asking for a thing in return. I take your advice to heart and consider how I can incorporate it into my own efforts. I also do frequent guest posts on there blog — which is where my point comes in.
The community on 3BStreet would love you just as much as my readers. Hope you have 20 minutes to highlight your course as it goes out with a bang! My question is this: If this link is to the research that he found, how does the blogger who found the research get a link to his site? After all, getting a link to his site is his primary motivation — right?
Then write the high traffic blogger and tell him that you found research that proves he is right. Here is the link to the article I wrote.
I believe both you and your readers will find it to be of great value. This is a really great piece. I have absolutely loved your recent posts in prep for NYFW — welcome to the city!! How would you like to do a short interview for my site to share the highlights of your story?
Looking forward to hearing back from you! Have a fantastic weekend! Up to millions of visitors at my own blog mentioned that you had important things to offer and I see that they were right! Keep up the good work and we can both help build a better future for people around the world! Feel free to stop by! I just want to clarify: If it were our blog post, that particular post would discuss the research we found then I presume. Love the article Derek.
Going to test some of these techniques out and test to see how we can continuously improve results. I am reading your stuff and thnking how to get the P S in the Ministry of… to give some funds to the Project I am presently working on. And just by Magic, I received an Email from one of the most important institution. It read in part: Thanks for this information.
We have a small fund that considers applications of this kind. I am asking the chair of the committee that handles this fund to respond to you. I will send her the additional information you forwarded as well. It take me a little while to get things to sink in, but, when I believe in them, it works for me. What I am really saying in this, it took me ten years of hard work and suffering to get these influential people to answer my Emails, but, I never gave-up. This is the other Email I received today about the appointment tomorrow.
Batson, I left you a voice mail indicating that we will meet with you tomorrow at 2pm. We look forward to seeing you punctually at that time. Two importnt mails in one day. That is why I am here tonight doing my home-to-work, my programme for working at home readng your Emails and Blogs, preparing for my appointment tomorrow. To sum it up, all good things come to those who wait. Most importantly, a man is known by the company he keeps.
This could be a small Blog Ha,Ha. Looking forward to the Email you promise with the Video next week. I have a real estate site where I post original content, and it produces leads almost every day, the problem has been to convert them…. I have tested a lot of different responses, soft sell, hard sell, generic, etc. I believe there are multiple properties in the Mississauga area, which you would find attractive.
Would you be interested if I were to start sending you some suitable places for you to review? We could narrow it down to the areas that you like, and the price range that you want. I could also show you some in person, if your travel plans permit. What do you think, is this on the right track? Fingers crossed they will answer back…. Ok Derek, here is my letter. It is not a prototype, this offer is real and yes, it is written to you. Teach me how I can best reach out to this guy named Derek Halpern.
You hand out some of the best advice on the planet when it comes to building an online audience. You have created a bully pulpit out of whole cloth in a breathtakingly short period of time. You are a great communicator for all your bowing and scraping about not being a good writer.
The problem is simply that many, if not most people lack clarity. Without clarity, all your wisdom bounces off these poor folks like a rubber ball. I have a solution for you. Anyone who signs up for my newsletter receives a free copy. Helping your followers get more clear will allow them to more effectively implement what you preach. And when they are more effective, your star rises even higher. You or anyone else you like can find it at veraclaritas. Let me soften up the ground for you to do that amazing thing you do.
Used your techniques to persuade. Thanks for the article…really well laid out and the examples are perfect. Absolutely worth taking the time to consider the three main incentives.
Thank you for sharing this with us. I found it useful. I tried it after reading and got a yes from the invitation.
And it requires vulnerability, authenticity, and sincerity. I did it, and the response, support, and help extended to me felt like heaven. Probably saved my life. Well, in recent years, I learned the hard way that I had to remove almost every possibility of interaction from my web sites — which sucks — so please do not visit any of my web sites.
I especially liked your articles about X. I write at Simple Mindfulness [link] about how people can use mindfulness in simple ways to become happier. The popularity of mindfulness has been growing like crazy with recent articles in The Huffington Post and Harvard Business Review of all places so additional articles on mindfulness on your site would most likely grow your readership. I even got a guest post request from someone who broke both of those rules and I replied back telling them all about it.
You should reply to my comment to prove you actually do. I noticed you have a knack for networking and marketing, and I believe you would be amazing in my business. Would you be interested in watching about 15 minutes worth of videos about our product and business? We would be helping people get into a better lifestyle, whatever that means to them.
Our product is an amazing nutritional supplement, and I believe it would help you, as much as you can help it. I lost 39 pounds in my first 90 days, and I would love to hear your success story! I did something like this on a small scale — I asked 5 bloggers to share one tip each on a certain subject, and compiled the tips into a roundup-type post.
I tweeted the blog post, and a lot of the bloggers retweeted me and the blog link, and posted it on Pinterest where I got a lot of repins — but that was all they did to promote the post to my knowledge I did ask them to share the post with their networks.
So I have to believe the bloggers promoted it in other ways, but am interested in a more concrete way to ask or achieve cross-promotion. I was referred here by Jamie at The Modern Tog. I am working on an approach today and this has made all the difference. Thank for a great article. I loved the examples you gave of each type of incentives. Make it very easy to see how to implement the suggestions. Not sure if that would work on an A-lister, but it definitely highlights the importance of giving value to someone else and focusing on them.
Dear Derek, You truly inspire me to take action. I followed up with deets and I am anxiously awaiting a response.
Fearful I blew it with the follow up. Thanks Derek for your inspiration! It would be an honor to introduce you to a workshop I offer. It aligns with your new book name of book here perfectly. I have conducted it many times, witnessing impactful results, creating major shifts, including my own, that has led to people healing themselves. With your delighted experience of this workshop, I would love to promote your new book.
I suspect I could generate at least a few hundred sales just from featuring you in my blog and during my workshops. I am affiliated with a retail store where I conduct my workshops. We have contact with many seekers and healers within our city. Plus, they sell books of this very nature. You can figure out the incentive by digging a little deeper and getting to their needs, pain and wants.
Thanks for the thorough discussion of using insentives to ask for help. I decided that everyone wants inbound links, so i started creating pages of links to amusement based businesses and the companies that supply them. Some of them have added links to me on their sites. And quite often i get new equipment listings from people right after i send out the weekly emails. However, I need to do more thinking in the area of incentives as I plan to start my own podcast by the end of the month. I was hoping you would link people to my blog as I see we share the same passion of making a difference and I would definitely like to recommend my readers to get to know you as THE EXPERT on blogging.
Thanks for providing actionable advice. We interview all types of entrepreneurs including creatives, authors, bloggers, professional services, speakers, etc. I have followed your blog, Social Triggers, for quite a while and believe you would be a perfect guest for our show. I love your no-nonsense, straightforward style of delivery.
Not only do you freely provide excellent information that our listeners could use, but you also have an inspirational success story that I believe they can aspire to.
I am also familiar with your advanced training, Blogs That Convert, and I believe our listeners would be very interested in learning these techniques from you. We could certainly provide a pitch for this at the end of the interview. In addition, your show would be archived and, if you would like, we could provide you the link for your audience so they could download and hear your interview at their convenience. If you would be interested in sharing more about your story by being a guest on our show, please contact me at susan thebetteryouproject.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you. I have often found in life the right things happen at the right time if it is exactly what you are supposed to be doing when you are doing it. On to my homework, I actually have met this person several times and we have a lot of connections in common, but I have not seen or spoken to her in many years and she has a lot of power and influence in a specific area of the equestrian industry that I am also tapping into I feel like I am really putting myself out there on this homework assignment btw!!!
It has been a few years since we last saw each other so I am hoping you remember who I am. Just like you, I knew that it was very important to get the concepts Ed and Ray taught to as many people across the globe as possible.
I came to the conclusion that a video-based education website was the best way to do it. Over the past year, I have reached out to and started filming several people who have also dedicated their lives to great horsemanship. Many of those same people reference Ray and Tom as their teachers, mentors and inspirations to be better horsemen and women. I know you have the Legacy of Legends coming up in a few weeks and Melanie and Mindy will both be there, both of whom I have worked with quite extensively this year.
Since you are now the voice of Ray, I would like to feature you on my site as well. In addition, I would like to use some of the proceeds generated from the website to sponsor an apprentice through Legacy of Legends, I am in the process of launching the site now and will be up and running with personal insights and introductory videos by the first week of February.
I encourage you to take a look at what I have up thus far at: I also encourage you to speak with Melanie and Mindy while you are in Las Vegas to get a litmus test of their experiences with me this past year. I have several other projects and ideas I would like to share with you as well that I believe would be greatly beneficial to you and your cause and the future of your cause.
You are welcome to reach out to me at: I would love for us to get together in the very near future to talk and I am happy to come out to you. I will be in Texas at the end of March, so if you will still be down there I would love to come out to see you if you are available. Well, I guess Gary Vaynerchuck just blew your strategy out of the water. Did you see his offer? All you have to do is ask.
Your post yesterday on thinking big was epic. I do a similar thing except I focus on curiosity as a main driver for action. I think both of our audiences would benefit from a different angle on the subject, so I was wondering if we could do a podcast interview to share with our tribes. I just want to add that this applies to dating as well.
I get tons of fb messages that just say hi how are you? I will never respond not even if you say hi everyday. What does work is exactly what you state in this post, someone write a geniune message that shows they are paying attention to what you care about.
And blocked many more ha. In fact, the review I did of your last book STILL, almost 3 years later, gets visitors every month and has received almost 4, total views.
Hope it helped make some sales. I think my blog readers, who are primarily small to mid-size business owners and event management professionals, would enjoy hearing more about your new book… directly from you. We can schedule this on a day and time that is convenient for you. I would prepare and share interview questions with you in advance. Marie Forleo introduced me to your work yesterday and I instantly fell in love.
Your message, voice, and approach to wellness is so refreshing, right up there with some of my favorite bloggers like, Sam Johnson and Peter Smith, you bring energy to your content!
As I was browsing your blog, I noticed that you have a passion for smoothies. Many of my most popular posts on my blog, some of which have received over 50, views in one day, are of dairy-free smoothies. A post like this will surely enable us to get a healthy breakfast smoothie in the hands of everyone, no matter their dietary preference! I also suspect that the feature will easily convert into a couple thousand new visitors for you when I send my readers over to your blog for the new recipe.
I use your blogs often in my classroom and assign the homework you recommend to my students. You speak into the listening of my students. I never thought to interview people before, so this is great to offer expertise in areas that im lacking. My website gets maybe 70 visitors a day, so it might help to build readership in the first place.
I had this crazy experience. Last year I created a decently valuable chart. It quickly fell off as the post aged, but wow was it exciting. Ive been trying to figure out how to approach other blogs with this same chart, or if its even a good idea. If anyone approaches bloggers with premade content like this, a chart, pdf or ebook, Id love to hear about it.
Without knowing your exact niche, I hope this will apply. I recently started contacting several WAHM and similar blogging sites to offer guest blogging, and approached them from the viewpoint of 19 years experience, author, speaker, and more specifically, how I share a common goal with their audience.
So, regular guest blogging would work here, thanks! But I know I can crack out a killer article about it. And now is the time, so I sure will give it a shot. Thanks for the push! One last question if anyone has a minute to answer. Would you create this article for more than one blog or would that just be cheesy?
I wrote a detailed post on building your email list a few weeks back. I am surprised how few of the comments are pitching you directly, Derek. Jamie, you are of course correct in your own case and in the case of many other readers here.
First of all, I wanted to say that I love your blog — not only the quality of the marketing advice you give, but that you focus on ethics.
Not enough people do that in our industry! I had an idea for how we might move it up to page 1. I also blog about internet marketing, with a focus on ethics, and my blog is also on page 2. If that sounds like an interesting idea, take a look at WhiteHatCrew.
You are so informative. I appreciate the homework challenge however, it would be quite ambitious of me to think I could complete this in one evening. My focus is to help churches make the most of the resources they have, get the most bang for the buck in the technology department, and produce an environment that is inviting and welcoming while remaining unobtrusive or overt.
I recently joined you in service and was blessed by your congregation. I had a fantastic time by taking your course. Thank you for all your hard work and patience last semester! I had heard you were teacher of the year one year and now I know why. I was honestly a bit intimidated by the course, but with your thorough teaching style, I was able to fully grasp everything you taught. Moreover, I appreciated how you focused on what is relevant and actually important. So thank you for being a fabulous professor—one who I will always think highly of!
It was a pleasure being in your class and getting to know you. Thank you for your great efforts in helping international students to improve our American accent.
Thank you for your advice and kindness. You empowered me to make a difference in my life and the lives of people looking up to me. Thanks for a great semester! I loved the books we read and the class meetings were always eye-opening. There was never a dull moment and you kept us on our toes. You challenged me to reach higher and further than I thought I could, while at the same time offering grace, kindness and compassion when my life was turned upside down. It is clear that you want us to learn and apply the knowledge we gain in your class.
Then, you took me under your supervision; you showed me how research is done, and how a researcher should think. You gave me a fixed spot in your busy schedule and walked with me through every detail. Your passion comes through in your teaching and seems to be a part of what makes you an effective professor. Your class and enthusiasm for the material made me genuinely excited to come to class. It helped me to find what I truly want to do with my career and where I want to go in the next few years.
Your approach was excellent and made me appreciate research like never before. My dream is to be a professor and when I become one, I want to be like you. But, your insights will help those of us going on to teach to be mindful of the very important work this is in shaping student minds of the future. Thank you for all of your encouragement. Thank you for teaching me that emotion and logic exist best together.
I learned to truly care about diversity and inclusion through your classes, and I hopefully now spread that message in a passionate but thoughtful way. I would like to express my thankfulness to you, a great professor, for your wonderful lessons in the class. You are gifted at explaining things multiple ways in an inordinately clear fashion to help students grasp concepts and theories.
