This blog is growing up so big and strong. I feel like a father watching his child grow up. Brings a tear to the ZHanny eyes. Us bloggers know that some of the healthiest ways to keep growing our blogs and content is to work together with like minded individuals. In my past ventures I have seen this theory in put into practice with great success. Heck, it almost doubled the amount of viewers one time. Sharing website visitors? Increasing your internet view-ability? Yes please! Imagine with me, if you will, searching your blog article on google. All of a sudden, it shows up on the first page (reference to #3). Ahh, the power of collaboration, determination, and consistency. I am getting ahead of myself here. Talking about this subject just gets me excited! Here are the top three benefits to collaborating with those like minded professionals.
- Do you like making friends in the same field as yourself? Well I do! I become fascinated by the creativity and ingenuity of other’s methods doing similar things. I see so many awesome blogs on my twitter feed, it’s enough to make my head spin! Collaborating with others not only increases the amount of internet surface area that you have, it also creates partnerships that benefit both parties. Want to trade articles and a few links? Sure! You have that deadline coming up and you need a guest post? I’ll see you there! We both might even learn something new, which brings me to my next point…
- Collaborations are a great learning opportunity! Here’s a great example of this. I was talking with another blogger a couple weeks ago about Pinterest. That individual could not believe that I did not have an account set up! I sometimes have interesting pictures that make great pins! She was like, “That’s like leaving money on the table!” Alas, my Pinterest account was born. You don’t believe me? Here it is! ZHanny’s Pinterest Be it a social media account, how to hire great freelancers, or tips on creating interesting keywords, the learning opportunities are endless.
- I sneakily referenced this in the beginning of this article but it’s such a great point. Do you know what SEO or search engine optimization is? This alone would make a great article. One of the ways it works is the level or amount of other people’s links to your web site. This increases your website’s ranking on search engines like Google, Yahoo, and others. With this increased ranking, more people will be able to find you which also equals more traffic. Everybody wins!
My ears are always open to collaboration pitches as yours should be too. There are certainly way more than three reasons that it’s a great idea! No worries, I’m not the spooky doll in the picture above. You can breathe easy now.
