Be a source...

...for your prospects

Write content your prospects want to read because it helps with their understanding of what you do and how it benefits them. Of course, what you do has to be relevant for a targeted audience. In our case, that audience is marketing directors. When we blog about websites and SEO and how it helps with their responsibilities, we hope they want to read what we're sharing.

...for other bloggers

Other bloggers find us, and we frequently get request from them asking to write for our website. That results in expanding the knowledge we share, and just as importantly, results in an exchange of links between our website and another.

...for the media

This is a bit more involved, because not only does your content have to be outstanding, but you have to establish relationships with the selective media. Building relationships with the media is more of a public relations function, and one we haven't truly mastered ourselves yet. But if you're, say, a home builder, your media outlets could be more delineated, so targeting them might be easier.
