Welcome to the fourth in a series of tips to help bloggers build communities, find an audience and get the most out of working with brands.
I hope you’ll enjoy these tips I’ve assembled with the help of other bloggers, brands, PR consultants, marketing pros, community managers.*
Tip 4: Display your contact information prominently
Make it easy for others to find you. This sounds like a no-brainer but you’d be surprised how many bloggers make it difficult to contact them… unintentionally.
Publish your email address and social channels in a prominent location such as the header or top of the side bar and/or have a dedicated “Contact” page (it’s okay to use a contact form) on your website or blog and make it easy for other people to find.
Don’t make them work too hard or they may move on and give a wonderful opportunity to someone else. Let people know the turnaround time they can expect to hear from you and if there are specific requests you’re receptive to and others you’ll ignore.
How do you make it easier for brands to contact and connect with you? Please share your tips in the comments.
