    Great post Casie. One of the things we used to send to clients was a checklist for every type of supplier they could have and possibly approach for a link. Sadly it’s not as effective now (e.g. a link from a stationary supplier to a manufacturer of eco friendly sofas would carry little weight) but I agree that the idea for people to look outside of just blogs for links is a great one.

    Great ideas, Casie. I love the idea of reaching out to customers. Most of the time you don’t need to ask them for a link directly. Just by nurturing a relationship they’ll write about you naturally since you’re often in their mind.

    Definitely! I love reading about companies doing cool things for customers and even simple things matter. Thanks for the comment Henley!

    Good point Mike! The type of relationship obviously matters and a link from an irrelevant source isn’t helpful. Thanks for commenting!

    I usually do contests and giveaways. Such a positive and creative responses from others. And instantly indexed on an article with Google Authorship. Organically hit various keywords that became organic traffic driving to the blog post. Pretty neat things that Hummingbird does now.

    I hope more companies follow it. Engaging is huge, just like I see your doing with every comment on your article. :)

    Contests and giveaways can be a great thing, especially for customers. They don’t have to be high cost and they can really create good will. Thanks for commenting! And thanks…even though responses take a few days ;)

    So to paraphrase the great Wet Wet Wet: “links are all around – they are written on the web and everywhere you go”? (hope you know your 90s music Casie)
