Two Quick Ways Of Finding Websites Interested In Cooperation
I am sure you know how hard it is to find websites / webmasters who are interested in any kind of cooperation – which might include link exchange or doing business in some other way.
If you just Google your main keywords and start contacting websites one by one you’ll often find a very low response rate to your emails.
So you need to find websites that are interested in cooperation and promotion of their own businesses.
Even without reading further you can probably come up with some ideas on how to find websites who are interested in their own promotion – which you can offer for something in return.
Here are two quick tips…
1. Search Press Releases
Sites who want to spread the word about their businesses and their latest developments and products use press releases to spread the word.
I’ll use an example of finding websites on the topic of tennis rackets.
You will find some crappy MFA websites doing their press releases simply for link building but you can find some really good companies and websites.
I did a search on prweb.com for tennis racket:
… and opened the press release written by Do It Tennis. The press release of course contains the link to their website.
It’s an ecommerce website that would most likely be interested in another type of promotion – like writing an article for your website with a link back.
You can ask for a link back from their blog or find another way of cooperating.
The point is that you found someone who is looking to promote their own site and with a quality content website you can surely offer that.
Using this strategy can help you find more interested parties…
2. Search Amazon.com for sellers
This is more oriented towards products…
If I am looking for business related to tennis rackets on Amazon.com, I’d go to Sports & Outdoors > Racket Sports > Tennis > Rackets.
Scroll down and you’ll see the Sellers on the right side.
You don’t see their website even on their profile page but you can Google them and it’s very likely that you’ll find that exact business…
If they’re serious enough to sell on Amazon.com, then they are very likely serious enough to look for any opportunity to expand their reach online.
You can offer that and ask for something in return.
Hope that gives you some ideas on how to find websites that are serious about their business and are interested in cooperation with other related websites.
