    This is a great website, I really like your theme. I am a little new to the blogging scene, but I definitely understand how bloggers can become irritated by repetitive emails and requests. Just spam in itself presents a very irritating issue. Do you have any recommendations regarding how you can get a blogger to write something that is promotional to your website in some subtle way.

    • David Spark

      Yes, hire them, and disclose that you hired them. :)

    I have to agree with #10. I think using social media to make a request, or whatever your intentions are, kind of puts the blogger on the spot. Everyone is listening and waiting for the blogger to respond. I think keeping things private and professional is definitely the way to go.

    People often trample over the invisible lines separating how others do and do not want to interact. Email, blogs, Twitter, and Facebook can make insensitive trampling even easier. I like how the 12 points above underline what we all feel and know is right, but so often forget: people are warm and accepting toward us when we bring something to the table first.

    The PR Summit group is a talent bunch and it's good to get such concise feedback about how to be sensitive when approaching others online. Thanks for the detailed info David!

    Well written Post David, I know what you mean about bloggers hate phone calls I have tried this method in past and have had little success from it…

    Even now I still have difficulties reaching out to bloggers and the step i seem to fail most on is The subject…

    What would be the ideal subject title if I was to reach out to you ?
