This shouldn’t come as news to anyone who has even a tiny following on the internet, but I regularly get bombarded with outreach of the lowest caliber asking for links and promotion. Last week alone, I received guest post pitches for fly fishing and pet adoption....all good, except our blog is about link building and digital PR. I’ve even received canned templates by competitors asking to promote their sites. It’s really no surprise that spammers blast poorly constructed lists, but what’s surprising is how often I see otherwise talented marketers make the same mistake. Ultimately, two major reasons for that stand out above the rest. We cover those in the latest post on the BuzzStream blog so you can avoid these unfortunate missteps.
