Number seventy-three: Digg the site
Good day. I'm Troy Dean from Video User Manuals and Agency Mavericks, and this is the 101 Ways to Elevate Yourself and Demand Higher Fees, a practical guide for WordPress consultants to start attracting better quality clients, work on better, more interesting projects, and get paid better fees. Now, let's go elevate.
Number 73: Digg the site. Hey, for some reason, we can't figure out why, but Google just absolutely loves sites that get submitted to Digg. So we've found one of the quickest ways to get a website into the Google index is to go and Digg it. That's right. D-I-G-G.com. If you've been live under a rock for the last ten years and you don't know what Digg is, it's a social bookmarking site and social sharing site.
So go and submit your client's website to Digg, and it may help get it into the Google index. And what I like to do is take a screenshot of submitting the site to Digg, and I send it to my client saying, “Hey, there's this cool website called Digg where people go and share cool things on the internet. And I just Dugg your site. I just submitted your site to Digg just to try and tell other people that you're up and about, and that you exist, and that they should go and check you out.”
Again, it just shows that you care about their success and goes a long way to building a good relationship with the client moving forward. In the next video, I'm going to show you the one thing that you should include on your client's WordPress dashboard. Until then, go elevate.
