Guest post on Top Blogs in your Niche
I believe guest blogging is the greatest invention by bloggers of this millennium.
Guest blogging entails writing great contents and publishing them on other blogs [top blogs] in your niche. If you want to become a famous blogger in your niche, guest blogging should be your first priority and you should pursue it aggressively.
Guest posting on small blogs in your niche won’t make much impact on your popularity, if you really want to be known, you need to aim for the BIG GUNS in your niche and send them great content as guest posts.
The main trick behind getting accepted to guest post on top blogs is to provide value, come up with a great article that the host blog will love. You need to take your time to research, and write quality and unique article for the host blog.

Writing quality guest posts won’t come easy, but it is a sacrifice you must make if you want to get famous in your niche.
Aggressive Commenting on Top Blogs in Your Niche
Another great way to get attention in your niche is to start engaging in aggressive commenting on top blogs.
When I say aggressive commenting, I am not talking about leaving rude, insult and trouble-oriented comments on other blogs rather I mean leaving reasonable and valuable comments on top blogs on a REGULAR BASIS, I will recommend daily if you have the time.
It doesn’t take long for people to take note of bloggers that are commenting on top blogs and the more your face shows on these blogs, the more recognition you get and the more famous you become.
However, before you can use this strategy, you will first need to research to find authority and top bloggers in your niche and make a list of about fifteen of them and make it a daily routine to visit them, read their posts and leave a value-adding comment.
Network with influencers in Your Niche
Connecting and following influencers in your niche is a crucial step to getting famous as a blogger. You need to connect with all other well established bloggers in your niche to hasten your own authority.
You should know by now that a “Tree does not make a forest”, if you want to make a forest, you need to connect with other trees. This applies well to the blogosphere of this era; you can’t get famous on your own! The space out there is crowded, you need to ride and fly on the wings of others that have gone ahead of you.
For you to be able to ride with and fly on the wings of top blogger, you need to connect and interact with them. You need to follow authority bloggers in your niche on Twitter, Facebook and add them to your Google plus circles.
Doing that alone won’t get you anywhere, you need to interact with them; FYI, social networking sites is meant for interaction! So retweet their tweets, like their posts, +1 the articles and don’t be afraid to spark up a conversation with them.
The more you do this entire thing, the more they will take notice of you and pay your blog a visit. There is one thing you should avoid in your approach, don’t try to look spammy and don’t bug them too much; as you know authority bloggers are quite busy and have less time to waste.
If you can retweet their posts, +1 their articles and like their FB posts regularly, it won’t take them long to notice you and start reciprocating the generosity that you have showered on them.
Imagine one of your posts been tweeted to over 30,000 followers of an authority in your niche or getting your blog mentioned on an authority blog with millions of page views, I guess the exposure you will get cannot be quantified.
Organize Valuable Giveaways
Organizing giveaways is a great way to get the word out about your blog, you and your brand.
Organizing any giveaway won’t give you your desired result, but organizing “valuable giveaways” will surely make you and your blog famous. What do I mean by valuable giveaways? I am talking about giving away things, softwares, tools that are of high value in your niche.
Don’t just give out what other blogs are giving rather look for that thing that every tom, dick and harry of your niche will love to have and use it as your giveaway prize.
Cash giveaways have been known to work well because “who doesn’t need cash?” I guess no one! But I still believe there are other valuable things that will perform better than a cash giveaway, the important thing is to find that thing that people in your niche are crazy about and offer it to them for FREE.
For example, if you are a blogger in the photography niche, a “Digital Camera” giveaway will be an awesome idea. Almost all photo bloggers will love to get a new Camera
Hope you get the idea . This will help to bring a lot of people to your blog and they will end up being a follower and also spread the word about you and your blog.
Getting famous in your blog niche won’t be an easy task especially if it is a crowded niche, but it is also not impossible. It is something that you can achieve as a result of steady application of the strategies that I have shared with you in this post.
