  • 8. You know the long tail, right?* The same mechanics work with TIME. http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.10/tail.html?pg=1&topic=tail&topic_set=* if not go & read:
  • 9. Let’s take an example. Would you rather get an article in Le Monde (print) OR in a nice blog?
  • 10. Hmm. It seems easy to answer. But let’s look at figures.
  • 11. Le Monde, around 300K diffusion. I don’t know any french blog having as many views.
  • 12. But don’t you forget something? Like the fact that...
  • 13. But don’t you forget something? Like the fact that...
  • 14. NEVER forgets. But don’t you forget something? Like the fact that...
  • 15. 300K visits is just 30x10K visits Yes. Le Monde is just like one month of any blog.
  • 16. Oh and by the way. Another difference. People will find you when they look for what you say.
  • 17. Getting coverage2
  • 18. Now comes the right question. How do you get blog coverage?
  • 19. You might just answer the one true question. Why does a blogger blog?
  • 20. Some do it for fun. Some do it for money. Some do it for fame. Some do it for the sake of it. Some even do it to get laid.
  • 21. So just be very clear. Bloggers are content publishers.
  • 22. they want AMAZING CONTENT
  • 23. Do you want bloggers to love you? Give them AMAZING CONTENT
  • 24. What is AMAZING CONTENT?
  • 25. what their readers like. what Google likes. AMAZING CONTENT is Hey! Think about their clients. Figure out who read their site (and who would like to read your content)
  • 26. AMAZING CONTENT is WHAT WE
  • 27. AMAZING CONTENT is WHAT WE
  • 28. How do you give them AMAZING CONTENT?
  • 29. AMAZING CONTENT is content that’s loved by the readers.
  • 30. So first, spot good blogs via: Google. Top Wikio. Twitter & Facebook feeds. then? Blogrolls & passion.
  • 31. Then Look at the «Most read» articles. (if there is no widget, look at the best ranked on Google)
  • 32. And grap the essence of the blog’s editorial work and of it’s readers taste. (either adapt your angle/content or pass)
  • 33. NEVER send a mail that says «I read you blog and love what you write»
  • 34. NEVER send a mail that says «I read you blog and love what you write» Bloggers just read «BlaBla». Like the last 200 mails.
  • 35. NEVER send THE SAME mail to every bloggers.
  • 36. NEVER send THE SAME mail to every bloggers. Journalists have to fill their paper. Bloggers don’t. They just want exclusive AMAZING CONTENT.
  • 37. NEVER call your file PRESS RELEASE.
  • 38. NEVER call your file PRESS RELEASE. And stop attaching 20 files. Make a choice. If you have 100 photos, attach 1, max 4 and put a link.
  • 39. You want them to LOVE you?
  • 40. You want them to LOVE you? Check the trends on Google, propose some titles, some funny stories, intro, facts, figures.
  • 41. You want them to LOVE you? Check the trends on Google, propose some titles, some funny stories, intro, facts, figures. MAKE THEIR JOB SUPER EASY.
  • 42. Creating AMAZING CONTENT is YOUR mission.
  • 43. So select the blogs that really resonate with you
  • 44. And do as if you were the blogger itself. «Give me something I care of and that my readers will love. And don’t make me work too much I do it on my spare time.»
  • 45. And think of the paper as if you were reader. «Please. Tell me good stories. Make me smarter. Make me laugh. Challenge my beliefs.»
  • 46. And btw.. if you have a website, make the story super easy to write. Launch a page gathering the the logo, tagline, company info (with different lenghts) and the story of the CEO. Scoop.it is the perfect exemple.
  • 47. Common questions3
  • 48. 1. Can I know how many visitors they got?
  • 49. No. You can’t know precisely how much visitors they got.
  • 50. But here is a jedi trick. Look at a recent article (less than a week), you can estimate the visitors with one of these formula : nb of Twitter share*10 nb of (Twitter Share+Facebook Like)*5 - the latter if there are more Facebook Like than Twitter share) (it often works)
  • 51. 2. What metrics really matter?
  • 52. We are all in a battle for attention. The champions fight also for engagement and sense of belonging.
  • 53. So here are the 4 metrics I love. My n°1 is: nb of views*time on the page My n°2 is: nb of shares/Like My n°3 is: nb of signups/total trafic - (either email collections or downloads, or account creations) My n°4 is: email clicktrough (%) - (the bigger the base the harder to be high)
  • 54. 3. How do you get TONS of articles?
  • 55. Make personal connections. And care. Don’t be here just when you need them.
  • 56. Connect them with AMAZING CONTENT creator. Speak about them. Invite them when you don’t need them.
  • 57. And of course... Create AMAZING CONTENT yourself.

  • 62. Five Ways to get on my shit list By Liam Boogar We write in English. N’écris pas en français. 1 2 3 I keep running list of bad startup names. Don’t make that list. “Here’s a recent article of us on another blog“. Bad idea. 4 No good startup was ever pitched to a blogger in 140 characters. You won’t be the exception. 5 Press release are attachments, not emails. Also I only read them after I decide to write about you, not in order to decide.
  • 63. Five Ways to get my Attention Be ready for Press. If you’re not sure what this means, you’re not ready. 1 2 3 Short email. “Hi. We do X. Want to learn more??“ Get an intro from someone we’ve written about. I like all the people I’ve written about. 4 Ask me to lunch/coffee – I do that every day, so you know I’ll be free in the next week. 5 Tell me why Rude Baguette should write about you ( “we’re French” is not a good enough answer) By Liam Boogar
