A great starting point is to leverage your existing connections and create new relationships.
Reach out to influential bloggers in your industry and attract their attention through mentions on your blog and social media. Your goal here is to create an opportunity for them to share your blog posts across their network.
Join a blog tour, a blog carnival, or other group blogging project (or better yet, start your own!). To see what this might look like, visit WordCarnivals.com.
Group projects help you create link-building opportunities that prove essential in the accumulation of high quality inbound links (and how your blog posts rank in search engines).
