Link Building for Business
When it comes to local link building to help their business grow, smaller businesses are usually unaware of the benefits link building can bring. To get your business moving off the ground, link building plays a key step, pathing the way to success! One of the most common issues that comes up for small businesses when it comes to link building is the struggle to build quality links. Below I have listed a few tips to help improve any business's link building no matter how big or small the business!
Local Partner Leverage
Try aiming for locally aimed businesses and franchises rather than the big shot corporates. This will help when it comes to collaborating on blogs. This is a simple way of boosting your link building.
If you're addressing people in a certain geographic area, then forming partnerships with local businesses is the away to go. Ask them if they will host one or two backlinks from their websites to help you gain more traffic flowing through to your website.
This technique was initially invented by Brian Dean of Backlinko. The technique helps simplify the link building process. Instead of coming up with new ideas for content for each coming week, the Skyscraper technique lets you simply take what's working for other businesses and improve upon it to suit your business! There are three steps involved in this technique:
One, you need to discover top-performing content in your niche. See what your competitors are doing to build links and compile a list of what you think might best suit your business.
Two, create something better than the top-performing content that you find in step one. Tailor some of the techniques you find to best suit your business.
And finally step three, promote your content via outreach. Reach out to a wide range of relevant websites and content creators to inform them of what you're doing and help spread the word.
Business Mentions – Search for them!
Searching for business mentions that are not on any community resource pages is a key bonus in getting more click-through rates to your website!
And finally, why not consider creating a local resources page. Fill it full of useful information on other local businesses similar to yours. This will get you onto the radar of other businesses who may wind up wanting to return the favor and give you an honorable mention on their website.
