You should know that this is a major attraction for them, and it will help you promote yourself better.
#Host an Internet Event
For this marketing strategy you should go back to your company’s blog. There, you can schedule a monthly event in which your customers and readers can engage with a certain topic. You can even use InLinkz and make a list of everyone who is participating. This will also help them get traffic on their respective blogs. For you, it is a great opportunity to show people you are actively engaging with them. Moreover, they will find out you are honestly interested in your business’ field and the topics surrounding it.
