Link Building Blueprint FAQ
What exactly is the Link Building Blueprint service?
Using your keywords, your industry, and target demographic, the Link Building Blueprint service is a content/link prospecting service, it does the following:
- We find relevant sources to host your content.
- Provide unique and trending content ideas and suggest titles.
How many link sources are included on each list?
Ten. You get ten URLs plus the other elements listed under each package, depending on the package selection.
How many lists can you purchase?
That depends on the industry. Some industries are much easier to find sources for because there are more bloggers, news outlets, and educational outlets in them. Some are not, it’s why we sell lists in lots of 10. If we have a really hard time creating the first list of ten sources, there’s a good chance we’ll say no to a second list.
Do you say no often?
Not often, but occasionally it happens. We won’t add low-quality websites to our lists, if we get into a niche and find a lot of junk, we limit the number of lists we sell.
Will you resell my list to someone else after giving it to me?
We do not compile and sell lists in the same keyword industry at the same time and leave a 45-day grace period between orders. For example, if you contract for a list of travel bloggers, we won’t reuse those sources for 45 days starting from the day we deliver the list to you. Given the way we work and the fact most sites have a different target demographic, this doesn’t happen often.
What kind of sites are on the lists?
Each Link Building Blueprint is tailored to your keywords and/or your industry. We prospect for media outlets, business sites, social platforms, academic and government portals plus much more.
Do all these sources accept content?
We specifically look for sites asking for contributed content, might be in the form of articles, infographics or news. If the site has never featured guest content we won’t list it but if they have, or they are a news outlet quoting sources, it makes the list.
So you don’t guarantee the site will accept our content or links?
No, we don’t. We don’t know what type or the quality of content you plan to offer so we can’t guarantee anyone will take it. We provide sources, we give you tips on how to approach them, it’s up to you to wow them with your content.
Can you find sources that only accept videos or infographics?
Yes, we can.
How long does it take to get a list of sources?
It usually takes five business days although a lot depends on how hard your keywords are. Sometimes we get it done in three days, most of the time it takes five business days. We’ve taken as long as two weeks in the past but that is really rare. If it goes past five business days it’s usually because you have really competitive (hard) keywords and we’re having a hard time finding quality outlets. We will let you know what’s going on if it goes past five days.
What happens if I don’t like one of the sources you find?
You can reject one source on the list and we will replace it but you need a pretty good reason why it’s not acceptable. Occasionally we list a site you already partner with, in that case, we’ll replace the link once you point the site out. But if you tell us you just don’t like it and provide no other reason, we will not replace the link and will not refund money.
We take great care to find and list sources we feel would be good content/link partners. You will find most of the sites we list are run by hard-working bloggers and media outlets who appreciate good content and guest bloggers. Offer them material that’s different, fresh and unique and you’ll get more “yeses” than “no’s”.
Are list prices set or do they change based on keyword factors?
Our rates do change based on the complexity of the industry and/or your keyword sets. We will always give you a quote before starting a service.
When is payment due?
We ask you pay for half of your Link Sources fee when the contract is signed. We use PayPal or you can send a company cheque snail-mail. We will not release lists until after the second half of the payment has been made. If using paper cheques, we require the payment in full before starting.
How do you deliver the list of sources?
We send them via email in an Excel spreadsheet or via Word document, your choice.
Would your Coaching Service help us execute an outreach program using the sources you find?
Yes, you can use your coaching hours anyway you find beneficial!
