Go ahead and plop these queries directly into Google
Slowly follow up and connect with them on LinkedIn one week then the next comment on a post. Retweet them.
The goal for this relationship-building phase is to get the prospect to know who you are but DO NOT spam them.
The third phase is equally as important. I really try to separate this into three sections. If you share this blog on social media and email me the link, I will give you these templates and a conversation for free.
The first I call content sharing.
You put in all the work to build this link. Do you think they know who you are yet?
I send out a pitch letting them know I shared their content across multiple platforms. I tell them how engaged I am with their content. My goal is to get them to rememeber, I am the one who liked their content.
I pitch my topic. I share my content with them and ask for their opinions on it. Then ask if I can contribute to theri site or ask for a backlink. It is that simple. Make sure you personalize everything and the secret to link building is the relationship.
