    I have a site with quality content that are relevant to thousands of other sites. Many sites already link to my site the natural way but I need more links to make that final jump in the serps.

    I have acquired many links by sending out mass emails to relevant sites, but not nearly as many as I had hoped for.

    Now I am considering a new approch. My site is a video site and I am planning to make a DVD with high resolution video and sell it. But more important I will offer the DVD for free in exchange for a link.

    Do you think people will be more likely to ad a link to there page if I offer this gift in exchange? The DVD unique and highly relevant to there interest.

    I will also step away from mass emails and focus on high PR sites and write more personal emails.

    Will it be worth it?

    The idea could work. Make sure the linking would be sufficiently helpful. As long as you can keep your operation above water, you don't need to listen to the typical advice.
