A big part of success in any industry that deals with entertainment or information consumption is how well you learn to collaborate with other people. Now, collaboration comes in many different forms, so pick and choose wisely which ones you’d like to focus on in your blog, as there is a degree of consistency you should maintain for your readers’ sakes.
Write About Forces Combining
As a blogger, you can get a lot of great attention by writing about collaborations as well as being in them. For instance, you could blog about a business and a school joining forces for some sort of task or as part of a relationship. This will make the business, the school, and your readers happy as many different people will find that value not only in what is being done, but who is doing it. Once again, this is the power of the group concept speaking, in the simplest terms, through your blog.
Collaborate With Dissimilar Writers
One problem that can occur with collaboration is if you choose to work with someone who is already in your blogging category. For instance, if you write about hockey, be careful working with someone else who covers the same topic. If, instead, you collaborate with someone who covers soccer, the two of you can talk about where the similarities and differences occur, without stepping on each other’s toes or stealing each other’s traffic, as that is more in the realm of competition rather than cooperation on a small scale.
Learn How To Mix SEO Methods
Another great consequence of good collaboration in blogging is if you work together on your SEO. If you aren’t using search engine optimization techniques already within the context of your blog, then today is that day to begin. Learn the basics of SEO right now, and then think about how you can use legitimate linking and cross linking to a collaborate to increase the amount of potential hits that you get, almost on an exponential level.
Blur Business and Personal Lines
One way to attract more attention from your blogging collaborations is if you’re willing to mix the personal and the professional when it comes to your counterparts. Not only are these people similar to you in their desire for financial success, they also have personal stories that can be told and connected to.
Produce Video as Well as Written Blogs
It’s never been easier to make a YouTube channel. If you’re already a blogger, why not become a video blogger as well, and then your collaboration will be even more visible. And with some intelligent linking and presenting the moving version of your blog can become extremely popular as well.
