Finding blogging experts to learn from is hard work! I've spent hours going from blog to blog looking for tips and secrets that can help me become a better blogger and make my blog more popular with my readers.
Have you ever thought, “If only there was one place I could get some answers!”
So did I, and that's why I've created a resource that will help.
Introducing Experts Speak
A few months ago, I was attending a live event called Collaboration Live, the brainchild of Richard Goutal. Richard and I had become social media buddies a few months before.
Being of the same generation and with similar goals, we instantly clicked and Richard was gracious enough to invite me to speak at his event.
What happened is another story and you can read it here.
During one of Richard's presentations, he was talking about the need to brainstorm about ways we can collaborate with others in our businesses.
He really got me to thinking about my blog and how I could involve other bloggers.
And the light bulb went off.
What if I invited other expert bloggers to collaborate with me on a project that would totally benefit everyone?
- What if our readers could get their common questions answered by several expert bloggers in one place?
- What if the other bloggers could gain exposure to new readers and some link juice in the process?
Would others bloggers be interested?
The answer was YES, and Experts Speak was born.
How Did I Find the Blogging Experts in Experts Speak?
I started out with the intention of asking 10 other bloggers to collaborate, but the list grew and we are currently up to 18 expert bloggers who have agreed to share their secret strategies to common problems that all bloggers experience.
Some of the people on the list below I asked directly.
I found others through the wonders of social networking.
When I asked Emma Tiebens to join, she immediately agreed. I asked her for some recommendations of other outstanding bloggers she knew.
To my delight, Emma suggested I also ask Jerry Chen, George Fourie, and Eric Walker.
Now if you know Emma, you know she is a masterful relational marketer, and although Emma had not been in touch with Jerry, George and Eric in a while, she knew due to her relationship with them that her recommendation would carry some weight.
This is why building powerful, positive relationships is so important. folks!
I had no direct relationship with Jerry, George or Eric, but by telling them that Emma Tiebens had recommended them, they readily agreed.
That, my friends is the power of building relationships.
