A Link Building Service for Long-Term Growth
Would you rather use tricks to get immediate results or do the quality work to grow business in the long-run?
If you passed the “marshmallow test”, then our white hat link building service might be for you.
My name is Artem and I’m the founder of Linkshero, a link building agency that helps growth-oriented companies build a brand that lasts.
If you already know the good, the bad and the ugly behind link building, you can check out our process and get in touch with me to discuss your project.
And if you still need a bit more info, let’s make it happen!
How We Don't Build Links...(And You Shouldn't)
If I was to put it in once sentence, I’d say that we don’t use any black/grey hat link building strategies.
However I understand that I need to make it more specific so…in case you decide to let us help you grow, you won’t see:
- Spam (e.g. comment link building, Web 2.0s etc)
- Scam (e.g. PBNs)
- Fiverr-level link building
- Anything that we know has a chance of damaging your brand in the long-run
I am the guy who walks the talk so here is how our link building service operates.
The Way Link Building Should Be Done
As a link builder I know – it’s not the links you are really after…nor it’s the traffic (even though we helped to 6x traffic in this case study).
It’s the bottom line.
Therefore I believe that any link builder should be focused on growing business by building and promoting content directly to its target audience.
In fact, here is a case study about a client that got 100% ROI after we landed just 1 link for him (he got a lot of relevant referral traffic and people just ordered from his store right away).
This is how we like to get our clients both, links and an audience that’s ready to buy from them.
Here is what it looks like in reality using another link building example – my own!
Create Great Content & Promote It Ferociously
I spent around 3 days putting together a research about Shopify stores after I found a trending post on Reddit (which confirmed an interest in the subject).
After that, we promoted it to 2 audiences:
- People that might be interested in our services
- Anyone potentially interested in the research itself (typically marketers)
The idea is that the first audience would get us clients and the second – backlinks.
Here are the 2 replies (out of a good few) that I received after we launched the link building campaign.
This is the type of outreach link building that I’m proud of because we help brands to get links coming from real, relevant websites AND get them clients at the same time.
This type of blogger outreach helps our clients increase their organic and referral traffic while attracting new clients that want to buy from them.
Would you like to grow your brand by promoting your best content to the audience that would both, link to you while buying from you at the same time?
Get in touch with me and let’s discuss your link building requirements!
Our Link Building Strategy & Process
For every client we follow a standardized process which is tweaked to their needs and abilities.
Auditing helps us to ensure the high quality of our service.
Before we kick off, we need to be sure that your site has a solid foundation so we check for any:
- Dead pages & missing redirects
- Crappy links from old link building services
- Internal link structure issues
- Overoptimization in anchor text ratios
Once we got the foundation in order, it’s time for the next step.
2. Link Building Campaign Design
Every campaign is similar…yet different.
This is when we figure out how to approach your specific case and connect with the audiences that will yield the highest possible results for you.
For example, if you are a SaaS with a cool story, we can pitch it to journalists to get maximum coverage for your brand and show others where you’ve been featured.
This is the method that I used at the time to get our own startup covered by FastCompany, Android Authority and other well-known publications…
By the way, you can see how I did that and learn how to pitch your SaaS company to journalists.
Another example is with an E-commerce store.
We can take a product that you sell and create an easily shareable piece of content that will help to educate people and get them to buy from you.
This is something that we did for 10Beasts when doing link building for their hoverboard page.
Again, the goal here is to get the maximum ROI for you.
Once we get that figured out we move to the next stage.
This is simple – we go out there and collect all the data we need to begin the outreach process (e.g. name, email, personalization…)
We primarily use Google and Ahrefs to find qualified prospects but at times we can dig into Twitter (especially when looking for journalists).
As soon as we have a list, we are ready to send it out.
Now that I’m writing this, we send out each email manually without the use of any link building software.
We tried almost every single solution but I found them to be not good for the following reasons:
- They dramatically reduce email deliverability
- They hurt your sending IP
- They are focused on quantity rather than quality
Sending great emails one by one and cherishing every single person we reach out to…this is how we help our clients build a solid audience and grow in the long-run.
5. Managing Replies
After sending tens of thousands (literally) emails we have an idea about how to get the conversation going and maximize the chances of getting a backlink.
We reach out, we follow up and land links…that’s kind of it.
Now let’s talk about who we love working with.ir
Other Link Building Tactics We Employ
We use a whole load of traditional link building techniques and strategies.
Guest posting is one of the staples of white hat link building. It is also the only method we can really use if your website doesn’t have (good enough) content to attract backlinks.
Essentially, guest posting is a process of finding, pitching and, ultimately, writing for other websites. The content that you provide them with would include a link back to your site.
All that being said, guest posting has been extorted by link builders. That resulted in more and more webmasters asking for money in return for the precious link. As a result, the quality of the websites posting guest posts has gone down significantly.
Our link building service follows a strict procedure for weeding out poor quality websites.
1. We make sure the traffic has been stable or increasing over the past year. If there was a significant drop in traffic, we skip this option right away.
2. We only use websites with over 1000 unique monthly visitors (estimated by Ahrefs).
2. Content Marketing
This is a great approach for any website that already has amazing content we could promote to relevant blogs.
This link building strategy requires an exceptional piece of content (e.g. a study with unique data or a news-worthy resource) that we would pitch to any websites that might be willing to link to it because they already linked to something similar in the past.
The Shopify Research that I have already mentioned is an example of that.
3. Resource Page Link Building
This type of link building is similar to content marketing technique from the above but we target resource pages that other blogs create for different topics.
You can find these by Googling for resource pages for a specific niche (e.g. “shopify inurl:links”).
This technique can work really well if you have an amazing piece of content (yes, content is king).
This Is a Match...
- are a proper company (e.g. e-comm, SaaS, affiliate etc)
- want to build a brand that lasts…in the long-run
- trust us and our process
- have patience – links aren’t earned overnight and take time to influence your rankings
This Is Not a Match..
- (think) you know better
- love micromanaging
- want immediate results
Link Building Pricing
Our goal is to create mutually-beneficial relationships with only a handful of companies.
This is why we offer competitive pricing for the long-term link building campaigns.
We offer 2 types of link building packages: Trial and Growth.
Trial is there to give you a taste of what our link building is like without the need of committing to a long-term contract.
Growth is there for the long-term partnerships. The price starts at $2000 and will depend on the exact requirements of your campaign so get in touch to discuss.
When do I see the results?
It really depends, but we tend to start seeing positive gains after, on average, about 6-8 weeks after the moment when the first link was obtained.
However, it really depends on the number of factors like your website’s authority, the level of competition, the keyword difficulty and other things.
