Liz Strauss of Successful and Outstanding Bloggers has crafted a creative marketing idea, where the good lady has asked people to send her their blog address along with couple of sentences – why some one should visit your blog ? & what’s the first blogging tip you’ll give to anyone ? and they will be showcased on her blog!

The blogs will be showcased on Liz’s blog and no one needs to guess the amount of exposure one will get in front of thousands bloggers and fans of Liz’s awesome blog. The reason, why I’m blogging about it is that it’s one of the simplest and creative marketing idea – I’ve ever seen. She is simply asking people to come and submit there blogs with blogging tips, just imagine the amount of content and ideas she’ll get when people will submit that information.

Along with that , she gets to connect with hundreds of new bloggers! I have read her blog and followed it, but today I got in conversation with her and now I’m blogging about it! So, what can be learnt from this creative and simple idea is that, you can attract visitors, loyal readers by giving simple things away and not necessarily by giving expensive gifts.

Update : I’m also reading the book written by Liz – The secret to writing a Successful and Outstanding Blog. Will post the feedback about the book soon!

  1. That’s hardly a new concept though is it, that’s happened forever!

    I even did it myself a few months ago here:

    What’s The Point of Your Website

    + I do not use No Follow tag..

    What is of more interest is asking yourself what IS the point of your site.. it’s very easy to miss the point sometimes.

  2. @ Chris : Well, I follow blogs a lot but I never saw it the way Liz has done. Even you just asked them to comment on that post, she is going to post them as a proper blog post. Liz has asked the same question in a different way :) and I agree to both of you that point of the site is really important, until and unless you have a goal, it will get difficult to make that site successful.
    @ Barbara Ling : Thanks a lot for linking back to me, Your blog post is insanely awesome :)

  3. Just stopping by from Liz Strauss’s Blog Show. I will have to forward info on your site to my husband who is the techie of the two of us. He is still working on my site, and I’m sure your post archive will help. Thanks.

  4. Hi Mayank.

    I found you through Liz’s Blog-to Show weekend. I like the look of your blog and am looking forward to reading through all your blogging tips. Liz sure had a great idea here didn’t she? Being a relatively new blogger I look forward to learning all that I can about blogging. I’ve learned a lot from 2 of my friends Barbara from http://bloggingwithoutablog.com and Cath at http://CathLawson.com/blog

  5. @SpaceAgeSage : I’m glad that you liked my blog and I hope that your husband finds it’s archive good enough to answer his questions. You can always post questions in our Forums ( http://studiowordpress.com/forums/ ) and we’ll be glad to help as well.

  6. @Davina : Good to see you here and thanks for leaving the comment and sharing the links with me. I will surely check them out and of course your blog as well. Hope to see you here more often.
