TIP #5
Anyone think hosting a contest in your area of business will be hard? Ask what area and brainstorm options…..
Charities / Causes
Most local non-profits host sponsor or donor pages; Some National charities do as well (i.e. NASCAR Foundation)
You need to do your research and see what charities in your community offer link back opportunities
Sometime a donation as little as $50 or $100 can earn you a link from a high authority domain
If a non-profit that you regularly donate to doesn’t have a “donors” page ask them to put one up
TIP #6

Sponsor Events / Dinners / Parties
There are dozens of events in your industry that need sponsorships, which include “Sponsor pages”
Each industry event includes official party and dinner sponsorships
TIP #8
Widgets offer link backs from high authority 3rd party websites.
Games and Quizzes can be a source of significant traffic and link backs.
TIP #9
Find broken links in your niche
Find replacement pages from your site or build content
Reach out to Webmaster and inform them that they have a broken link on their site (provide link) and provide them with a substitute.
