    Hello peeps,

    I'm ready to move away from angela's packages, and instead focus on long term, heavy valued links, but I'm needing advice and guidance on how I should begin to approach these.

    I can research which authoritave sites, but in what tone of email should I apporach them in? What should I be expected to pay (let's say in the wedding industry). What tricks and tips should I have, to lower their fees (ie offering to write the content ourselves?, sponser a giveaway from their website?)

    Initially, I'd just like to offer them a piece of permanent article real estate on our website, as our domain is well aged, and do offer worthwhile ariticle spaces, and can even do pictures and such.

    Does anyone here have experience in the kind of link building, that I am talking about here?

    Long lasting, high quality links from reputed websites.

    Urban

    A good value for the Sites.

    Quality Links as offer (for them).

    Other service for them (....).

    Explain, why you like to change.

    Currently our website is e-commerced based. We deal in china exports(cheap made in china items, a great hit), and I'd like to approach logistics companies, and offer to write them about their company in our websites, etc. So I'm brainstorming on what type of business is in-directly related to the import export business, and contact them for this particular proposal.

    However I don't have a very good set of routine, and a foresight thinking ways of managing these tasks daily. How should I start?

    Its nice if you offer them you post them on your site with an article, but thats not a backlink for you ;)

    Ask/Speak with your partners, give them a benifit, make them to a "important" partner and told it, tell them that you make your partnership official etc.

    In years past I had very good results with letters that focused on the benefits information on my site provided them and their readers.

    If necessary I would create some reverse-ink-bait material to use bolstering my presentation.

    For example, to use the notion of a site devoted to dog training:

    For .edu sites on veterinary medicine, I'd track down and publish a translation from the earliest article on dog-training by Gaius Julius Dogbertus from 146 BC.

    For .edu sites on history of Renaissance I'd try to get a translation of Marco Dogberti's article on training published in Venice in 1412.

    For psychology sites featuring the use of pets to combat depression I'd let them know my site has the first article on this topic published in 1623 by von Dogbert.

    In other words, I treated the effort to get external links from high-rated sites as an actual campaign that required a bit of initial work but that paid off later.

    It is easy, in the info products field, but the only thing I have to offer, are cheap products in my e-commerce store for them to review, and e-commerce products are a dime-a-dozen. Hence I don't have a lot of good quality articles to put out (but I am writing articles describing each categories, and the benefits of it during the economic slowdown).

    It is a problem of hiring a quality content writer that can do that for you, if you don't mind me asking Kid Shaleen, how much do you pay per articles, of these calibre?
