    Hey what's up everyone!

    I recently launched my new social discovery platform and I am looking to be featured on a few notable blogs. Do any of you have any recommendations as to where I can contact some people regarding this. Or if any of you have notable blogs yourself in the tech space I would definitely be open to talking! Any help is truly appreciated. Thanks! :)

    Just reach out to blogs you would like to be on. Most will want some compensation for it. It's the nature of the blogging business. Many of these blogs make their money from advertising. So ask them how they work.

    Sounds good. It just seems like many of them don't reply. Maybe I need to change my introduction when approaching them.

    That will be a problem. The issue here is that many of them have to believe in what you are doing. Let's keep in mind that these blogs or websites worked hard to grow their reputation, so they don't want to just push anything. And many may not even offer advertising.

    Do you have a budget for advertising? What niche are you in?

    I don't have a budget yet. Trying to utilize my current relationships and knowledge to help build this website. I need to show that I can acquire a decent amount of users before I approach anyone for any sort of investment. Which would later help with creating an advertising budget.

    The website I created is a social discovery platform.

    It is very difficult to gain traffic without atleast a small advertising budget. You are going to have to get creative. Think of ways that you can help the blogs that have the audiences you want. It's not a straight forward answer. Because most blogs that worked hard to grow their audiences remember clearly that very little people were willing to help them. So it becomes a vicious cycle.

    And I can understand it. Because they paid their dues. And they want to take care of what they grew. You are going to have create a pitch that gets them interested. But you have to be prepared for the rejection. Because there is many that will literally ask you what's in it for them. And most will not be opened to 'if it grows, i'll pay you back somehow.' But there is some that might.

    It's a numbers game unfortunately.

    Very true. I appreciate the honest answer. Will more than likely start attending conferences that refer to the blogging/SEO niche to build some solid relationships. I feel it'll be much easier for me to offer something beneficial to them if I were to speak to people face to face.

    If you are good writer you can offer them to write a guest blog post. Many blogs love this because they don't have to write it themselves. You both have to agree that you will add links back to your site at the end of the blog post. That's the way I would approach it. But you have to make sure it's a great article that will help the audience of the blog.

    Invest in a "guest blog list" and begin manual-outreach to blogs within the "tech" space; just an idea. There are (or "were") a couple of services here on the marketplace selling such a list.

    Oooooo great suggestion. I'll definitely look into that. I'm sure there's a list lingering somewhere on the internet.

    For sure, you'll come across one. I did a quick search on the marketplace and the one service that I was going to recommend to you is no longer available as the seller didn't maintain their membership.

    It was at one point a freebie here on the forum, so, maybe one of the members that received this list for free would be willing to return the favor to you. ;)

    Send them an email is the best you can do. Other platforms such as Linkedin and twitter are slammed with spam. Facebook is too personal. If you don't have their skype or if you're not a member of any community (as BHW), then send them an email.
