Listen on iTunes | Stitcher

Heard about the Skyscraper technique in online marketing but never tried it out? Had a go at using it but didn’t get results? Then this episode of the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast is for you!

Listen to our chat with Paul Kortman of nomadtogether.com on how this relatively new approach to link building can be pulled off effectively to benefit your website’s visibility. In essence, the Skyscraper technique begins with identifying a blog post or web page that’s both relevant to your audience and has been linked to by many authoritative websites. The idea is to then see a weakness in the post and write your own, on your business’ website and/or blog. Then, contact the websites that linked to the original post and aim to convince them to link to yours – or, even better, get them to switch their link from the old post to yours!

With links, it’s about quantity as well as quality. To get a high amount of authoritative website linking to content on your website, you need to give them a reason to do so. The Skyscraper technique focuses on this, centring in on a piece of content that websites have already seen fit to link to, and then offering something even better affiliate themselves with.

Paul and Head Ninja Tim take us step-by-step through the entire process of how to successfully pull this strategy off. They look at the traditional marketing techniques it riffs off and how to refine your approach to make it a consistent link builder for your website.
