get it right

So my Blacklisting post got a lot of attention, here’s an example of getting it right when approaching bloggers or anyone really:

Hi Damien,

We viewed a link from for Cava Restaurant to – and just want to say ‘thanks’ for the link – your site is very informative.

Again – many thanks.

Warmest regards,


Imagine if every company thanked someone for a link, just like bloggers do when someone links to them. It says a company is listening, they’re thankful for the link and they don’t try and sell you anything in addition either.

    And would you be more likely to link to them again or entertain future reach outs… of course 🙂
