How to Take Your Linkbaiting Skills to a Higher Level

Have you ever found yourself asking?

I need help with my headlines and I need it now?

Do you have any linkbait ideas, the sooner the better?

Could you help me build my social network?

How do I get a digg power user to submit my cool content?

It’s a common problem for those wanting to create linkbait and attract thousands of people and links to their website. It’s why a professional linkbaiter can charge many thousands of dollars, if you can get hold of one. I charge $4,000 but unfortunately I am not accepting new clients.

I have separated the linkbait process into the four stages above. Get all four elements right and you are liable to get some serious traffic and links. Although, if you have a popular site already, you probably only need the first two as your own audience will take care of the latter two.

For personal consultation I charge £150 an hour, minimum ten hours. This enables me to work closely with you, getting to know your niche, your objectives and helping you craft your linkbait to the quality needed. I also help getting the content submitted to digg through a power user.

The problem with hiring me for a personal consultation is that I am expensive. £1,500 or $3,000 is a lot of money for most people. Which is why these days I tend to only work with Corporates with large pockets.

So I got to thinking. How could I deliver the same level of personal service to clients but at a reduced cost, as a reduced cost means I get to reach more people?

An eBook after all, was out of the question. It’s not that eBooks are evil, I have learned a lot from various eBooks and there are some good ones out there, but I feel linkbaiting needs something a little more personal. A little more hands on. Different niches require different approaches as each sector has it’s own hot buttons and a one size fits all is not going to cut it. The solution needs to be tailored to the specific needs of the niche.

Creating headlines is very difficult for some people, personally I find it very easy to come up with headlines, I don’t mean to brag, it’s just how my brain works. If someone has a niche they want to promote, I can usually come up with more usable headlines in a hour than they can get through in a month.

Linkbait ideas too. I have a notebook crammed with them, for various niches and industries. I spend most of my waking hours thinking about linkbait and I often get ideas when I look at a niche. Most of them do not get used as I do not have time to create the linkbait, taking as it does 5 – 10 days to put together.

So rather than go down the linkbait eBook route, I’ve decided to replicate my personal consultation service, but instead of charging £1,500, I am only going charge £200 for a whole months access to a subscription only forum where I will coach people to create linkbait worthy of any professional linkbaiter.

Considering how much I charge for linkbait, this is an absolute bargain. This program is going to be very hands on, I can only accept 20 people, as I want to deliver the most personal service possible, answering questions, coming up with headline ideas, helping with linkbait ideas, introducing you to a larger social network and helping with that digg submission (as long as the content is worthy).

I have put aside half my working time to help 20 people create killer linkbait campaigns. I will be teaching all I know, every trick in my playbook will be available to you. Nothing is going to be held back.

I know other linkbaiters want me to STFU, and who can blame them when they are making so much money selling expensive linkbait services. But, pass me that megaphone, I think I need to shout just a little bit louder.

In fact, other linkbaiters may hate me for what I am about to do as a number of people have told me they want to join so they can offer their own linkbaiting service. And why not, I believe in an abundance mentality, that there is more than enough work to go around. And the monthly fee can easily be recouped with just one linkbait sale.

Although it’s a monthly service, you can sign up for just one month if you prefer. I’m making it as transparent as I can, as I don’t see a need to be tricksy. I find Paypal the best for this kind of subscription as you can easily cancel your subscription with little difficulty. Some may only do one month, whilst others may do a year. It’s my intention to retain as many subscribers as possible by providing the most beneficial service I can.

I want those who sign up cranking out the most linkalicious linkbait ever seen in the history of mankind. I want to help you create linkbait which will make your competitors so jealous, they will gnaw off their own arms, all the way to the elbow.

As you can see, I am not going to craft an obnoxious sales letter for this. You know the kind, with the large red letters and the screaming headlines. “Sign up to my course right now!!!! Or your offspring will curse you!!!!

It’s not what I am about, I shoot from the hip, you either like it or you don’t. I want only serious people to sign up for this.

Warning

This course is for advanced members only. If you do not know what linkbait is, please do not join.

The Linkbait Coaching course will be launching on Monday, 2pm (UK time) June 16th

There is absolutely only 20 spots available, this is not a marketing gimmick, it is the limit of how many people I can give a great service to all at once. Once the spots have gone for that month, that’s it.

    Lyndon, will you be opening up slots as they reappear and will the then joined members be able to access the answers to previous questions, or all I get is access to you, without access to answers to other people?

    Thanks.

    @yura, Good question.

    I don’t plan it to be time specific. If people leave at the end of one month slots will open up. I don’t expect everyone to continue with the service, but I know that some will.

    Newly joined members will have full access to previous discussions, questions and answers, resources. Pretty much everything.

    The system is based on a forum with static lessons added as we go along. I don’t want to add too much content straight away as I want to asses members requirements.

    Q & A I think is the best format in this instance as the people who are joining are not noobs and want to get stuck into the meat as soon as possible.

    For example, I expect there are going to be questions such as:
    I need some linkbait ideas for an Organic Food blog?
    Can I get some headline ideas for an airport review I am writing for a travel blog?
    How should I approach such and such to get them to friend me on digg?
    What are the basic elements of a headline which works on digg?
    I want to launch a linkbait buisness, how do I go about it?
    Could you take a look at this content and submit to digg if you think worthy?

    etc.

    Obviously I have a good idea of the questions which will come up and am preparing a few resources to help get people on the way.

    Hope this as answered your question, and a bit more.

    That completely answered my question.

    However, I have another one. The examples you sited are pretty simple for anyone reading your blog. Will you be able to answer advanced questions, like listing values and emotions to remember and how best to intertwine several emotions without seeming false?

    Thanks again.

    @yura, abosolutely.

    If people want to get into asking about things like cognitive dissonance, psychological motivators, replacing rational words with emotional words, etc. no problem.

    The coaching program will be at the level each member wants it to be. I expect it to get into advanced topics. The questions were merely to represent what I thought might get asked.

    A lot of people have expressed interest in headline creation and ideas for linkbait as well as the theory.

    The pace of the coaching program is going to be set by its members, rather than me. I don’t have a set structure to travel down, merely jump off points to help people create effective linkbait.

    The area of writing to instill emotion is an area I would like to touch on if that is what people want. For example, the recent, notorious fake linkbait story was specifically designed to press certain emotional buttons and I am thinking of creating a number of case studies which cover this.

    It’s a fascinating area and it will be interesting to touch on how politicians speak to us, how Hollywood gets us to see bad movies, how newspapers filled with lies and trash can get readers, and links from google ;)
