I’m really excited today! I want thank you so much for joining MCNG’s first professional link up party. For those that may not be familiar with what a link party is, it’s a virtual party where any professional and blogger can add a link to their blog posts on a party host’s site (this time the host being MCNG).
There are guidelines to participate in this link party that I will be going over later that will make this link party a success. The great benefit is that you’re going to get your article exposed to thousands of people over time, and since I write a lot about Pinterest, I’m sharing my community of readers with you, without the requirement of guest blogging. Isn’t that cool?
Here’s a 3 minute video that explains in detail of how to add your link to this link party:
Here are the Party Guidelines to Make this a Success:
Starting Sept 4th at 5pm (PT) to Sept 11th 5pm (PT) any professional social media writer can add a blog post about Pinterest to the link party. I strongly suggest that it be one of your best articles to help drive intrigue and traffic. The early you come to the party, the higher your post will show up in the feed. All you have to do is click on the add link button near the bottom of this article.
Have a 200X200 pixel of a picture ready to upload for our party. This is not necessary, as Inlinkz, the program we use for our link party is able to take pictures off of your site, but they aren’t as good as ones you upload. Have a picture that will lure people in with a good headline and will help stand out.
The title of your link is limited to 50 characters. Feel free to add the name of your blog or company for the extra brand exposure.
Party Etiquette and Rules:
Rule 1: Each guest is allowed to only link one article that must be related to Pinterest marketing.
Rule 2: You must pin content from two other party participants that you believe have great content. Try to pin stuff from people you haven’t connected with before if possible. This way we’re all pinning it forward and everyone at the party benefits.
Rule 3: Kindly link a blog article from MCNG Marketing on your next blog post. So this can be about the one where you participated in a link party.
Rule 4: You must Pin the first image featured on this blog post on one of your Pinterest boards that states that you are participating in a Professional Pinterest Link Party.
Now let’s get the link party started! Add your best articles below. Click on the add links button to get started, and it’s as easy as 1,2,3. Feel free to share this with others social media writers! I’ll also be writing about the results in a follow up post, and will most likely host another link party but for social media articles in general. (That was something that was requested a lot.)
