How To Get Featured On 85 Blogs In 12 Months – Blogger Outreach Strategy

Blogger Outreach Strategy

Today is the day of honesty (yeah, I just created that day.)

So let`s be totally honest; you are REALLY fed up.

Fed up by not having enough traffic to your blog…

fed up by not having enough social shares…

fed up by not having enough comments…

fed up by not having enough email subscribers.

But worst of all…

…you are so freakin` fed up by being invisible in the overcrowded blogosphere.

Sounds familiar?

No worries. I have been there too.

And to be completely honest (since it`s the day of honesty) it sucks BIGtime!

You would do almost everything to solve those problems above, right?

Perhaps even go so far as shave your head…

or even sell your left kidney.

Well, I got good news for you.

No need to go bald or increase the amount of kidneys on the black market just yet.

Relax. Breathe. I got your back.

But before I proceed, I have a million dollar question:

Do you know which awesome day it is today?

If you answered that it`s mybirthday, then a flying high five to you! *SLAP*

But the day isn`t just awesome because it`s my birthday.

The day is truly awesome because I spend my birthday giving praise and thanks to other people, like I did with this blog post last year.

Yeah,it seems tohave become a tradition for me.

But before I start with giving thanks to the long list of awesome people, I want to talk about…

The Elephant In The Room

When you start building your brand online, regardless of whether you are a blogger, internet marketer, small business owner or freelancer, you will quickly realize…

that you feel so ALONE.

Yes, I said it!

It`s freakin` lonely to start out online when…

you don`t know anyone…

you are totally invisible…

you don`t know what to do…

you don`t know who to ask for help…

you are afraid to fail…

but worst of all…

…you are starting to doubt if you have what it takes to succeed online, even BEFORE your have started out (I hope that motivation is not your target niche).

A really great way to start, right?

And I am going to be completely transparent.

All the brutal facts above applied to me in the start too.

And yeah, I was a bit afraid.

Nah, who am I kidding? I was freakin` terrified.

I had just decided to leave my six-figure corporate job in order to start my first blog.

Now you are probably thinking: “Hey Tor, that is just crazy”.

Yup, you said it!

In addition, I was going to become a father for the first time.

And now you are probably thinking: “Tor, that is sooo crazy that running around in your local mall totally nude, would almost be perceived as normal compared to the crazy stuff you are doing”.

I couldn`t agree with you more.

Note: Let me make it crystal clear. I am not vouching for nudeness at malls or any other public place for that matter. I just had to say that, so I won`t be the one to blame if your 86 year old neighbour ninja ambushes you nude next time you are out shopping.

After a few months of struggling and banging my head against the wall.

I decided that I was…

Freakin` Tired Of The Loneliness Crap

Enough is enough, and I was no longer going to be a lonely ranger in the wild wild blogging west.

There is no glory in failing alone.

So what did I do?

I started networking with other people online (or blogger outreach as we bloggers call it).

And what happened?

It changed EVERYTHING.

After a short while…

I got to know A LOT of people…

my blog and brand got more and more noticed…

I knew what to do…

I knew who to ask for help…

I wasn`t afraid to fail anymore…

but most importantly…

…I knew that I had what it takes to succeed online.

All that happened because I created a blogger outreach strategy.

And guess what?

If I can do it. Then so can you!

You are probably thinking: “I get it, Tor. Blogger outreach is important, but does it REALLY work?”

Good question indeed.

Judge for youself.

Here are some of…

The Accomplishments In My First Year Of Blogging:

  • Got 2000 targeted Twitter followers in 38 days (free traffic) – I now have about 12 300 followers
  • Wrote a post that generated 20 231 page views in 6 days, 1500+ social shares and 80 comments
  • Won “Most Epic blog post” on Jon Morrow`s blog Boost Blog Traffic
  • Became a moderator for Serious Bloggers Only (Jon Morrow`s mastermind group)
  • Became a case study for Jon Morrow`s Guest Blogging course
  • Was asked to go through and give feedback on Jon Morrow`s Blog Launch Formula course
  • Increased my email list in 779 subscribers in 60 days (by working 40 days)
  • Included among the top 100 personal development blogs on 99 Smart Ideas
  • Got 28 guest posts published on big websites, including Pick The Brain, Addicted 2 Success, Jeff Bullas, Tiny Buddha, Lifehack, etc.
  • Got featured as a productivity expert on Inc.
  • Got featured as an expert on 44 blogs, including Ahrefs, SEM Rush, Post Planner, Monster, etc.
  • Added 347 subscribers to my list in one day by using what I call “The Banking Technique”
  • Connected with hundreds of influencers by using what I call “The Thanks For The Party Technique”
  • Created several digital products
  • Have 3 blog posts ranking on the first page of Google, and several on page 2 and 3 (still climbing)

Note: Nothing of the above would have been possible, if I didn`t have a clear blogger outreach strategy.

I will soon be launching my free blogger outreach course called “How To Blog Outreach Like A Boss”. Only 100 spots available (seriously).

You might be thinking: “Okay, Tor. You managed to do blogger outreach, and that`s good for you. But I don`t have as much time to spend on it as you do.”

I hear you.

Let me reveal something toyou; when I was building my blog, Sara and me became parents for the first timeforour lovely baby daughter Luna.

Did I mention that Luna had colic and she was screaming 20 hours per day in about 3 months straight?

Did I also mention that during that time, I managedto cancel a renting contract, get a bank loan and buy a new apartment in 3 days?

To be quite honest, on average I spent about 2 hours per week on blogger outreach.

I only managed to do it so effectively because I had a specific blogger outreach strategy (and I`m extremely productive).

If you think you can`t spend2 hours per week on one of the most IMPORTANT activities for your online business…

well, then you just don`t want it bad enough.

But I know that you can do it!

Then it`s time to dish away some praise to the awesome people.

Note:I have connected with so many great people, that if I forget to mention your name here, please forgive me. Just send me an email and I will lash myself with a penguin with a dull beak.

Without further ado, here is the list of awesome peeps (in no particular order)…

    You made this day possible by your consistent hard work. I have been seeing your valuable content on various sites. It takes lots of guts to leave six figure comfortable job. On top of that, you took the decision when you were expecting a baby. I hope Luna is feeling fine right now. Give my love to her.

          Hey Brent,

          thanks for following up.

          When me and my better half, Sara, bought a new apartment when I just started my online business, I obviously didn´t have a fixed income like in a 9-5 job.

          However, what I did have, and which I have been working my b*tt for in the last few years, was a descent “I have escaped the rat race” fund.

          That being said, the bank needed to freeze 95% of that money in order for us to get a loan.

          So my only focus this year is the month of May.

          By the end of May I will have hit: 4000 subscribers and earn $3000 per month.


          So the bank can release my money from prison, and I can finally buy my baby daughter, Luna, a pink unicorn.

          Well, I probably have to buy a horse, paint it pink and glue a horn to the forehead (*psst* Don´t tell Luna about it).

          Obviously I have goals for each month, however it´s all about May.

          Thanks for asking, my friend.

          Rock on!


  7. says

    Hey Tor,

    First off Happy Birthday!

    I have to tip my hat off to you. You have accomplished a lot within in a short time. My plan next you is to do more networking and it looks like I’ve connected many of the people you’ve connected with which gives me a lot of motivation. I look forward to 2016!

    I’ve been in your shoes- left a corporate job so I could be with my newborn(who did not sleep for a year) and pursue a freelance writing career both at the same time.

    While it was very tough, the end result was extremely satisfying. Your story is inspirational and will motivate me to work harder on my online writing business. Thanks for sharing and best wishes for the new year!

      Thanks for your kind words, Julie 🙂

      Finding your niche is very important. If not, it´s like running as fast as you can with no direction.

      How do you know when you arrive at your destination?

      Or even worse, after many months of hard work, you finally discover that you were going in the complete opposite direction.

      Spend your time on nailing your niche and your target customers.

      That will save you for a lot of frustration in the future 😉

      Hey Aravinth, thanks for your kind words.

      Good question.

      I do about $3000+ per month in coaching, and I recently launched my first product using something I call The Pre-Free Technique, which resulted in $6000+ in sales. And I make a few dollars in affiliate commission.
