We can both get what we want. But, we need to work together.
If you come to allnurses just to post a link to your website it will get removed. It may even get you banned.
We know this process will generate more traffic for you. Coming to the site - posting a link and running off - will not provide the results that you seek. Follow our recommendations and you will be a satisfied partner.
HOW TO START
1)__ Register if you haven't done so. Fill out your profile (biography, credentials, etc). Most importantly don't forget to add your website and any social networks that you belong to. For example, facebook, twitter, Google, etc.
Our readers will visit your profile to get to know YOU. This is an opportunity to connect with our readers.
2)__ Write articles (articles must be unique to allnurses; should be personal; promote engagement)
Your goal is to show your knowledge and expertise. Well-written articles grab attention. They are easy to Share and Bookmark. A topic that is bookmarked by many is one that gets a lot of traffic.
3)__ Comment on topics posted by others. You become a valuable member of the community by participating throughout the site.
Your goal is to come across as a helpful member of the community. Take this opportunity to get to know our members and vice versa. Start making new friends.
4)__ Reciprocate links. It's acceptable to link back to your articles on our site from your site and vice versa.
A great partnership is one that is fair.
5)__Become an active participant and contributor in the Nurse Innovators Hub. Network with other innovators….those who are already established in the blogging community as well as those just starting out. Become known as one who enjoys mentoring others.
6)__Upon approval from allnurses, introduce a free product to the community. NO STRINGS ATTACHED.
IMPORTANT: Writing an article is the best way to do this as it is available on many fronts (eg. in forum, main page, newsletter, facebook, etc). Products should be ready to download. For example, if it's a book - provide a link that will download the book immediately. If it's a video, embed the video in the article. DO NOT REDIRECT to your site. This is a huge turn off for many. Rely on your product. A great product will provide you and our readers a good return on investment.
