Backlinks: Why Are They Important and How to Get Them | Ep.15 | Get RANKED on Google Maps

Have you ever heard of the Rolodex method for getting links?

It’s my favorite! Here’s how it goes ⬇️

  1. Grab your phone and go to your contact list.

  2. Go through every contact and ask yourself, “Is this a business owner who has a website?”

  3. If the answer is yes, then ask yourself, “Can I give this person a reason to link to my business on their website?”

  4. If that’s also a yes, then you can go ahead and draft a proposal. Remember to specify which section on their website you want your link to be put in, as well as what you want the text of the link to be.

Do this for your whole contact list and I guarantee you’ll get some great links for your business!
