In this interview, I talk with Phil Taylor, from Ptmoney.com about how he has managed to get a significant amount of media exposure for his blog.

Phil has been featured on sites like Turbotax Online, MSN Money, US News and World Report and CNBC.

Phil is a fellow blogger that has been blogging since 2007 and has seem a significant amount of success.

At his blog, he discusses all things finance and focuses on topics such as making money, saving money, and spending money wisely.

It’s a site that I check out from time to time when I need info about banking, credit, loans etc.

It doesn’t stop there. Phil actually gives a step by step guide as to how you can go about getting media exposure for your online business.

As you can imagine, getting media exposure for your online business is something that can result in a significant amount of traffic.

It’s a strategy that I do plan on implementing with my Biology site, and is very relevant depending on what your niche is.
[unordered_list style=”tick”] Here’s a brief summary of what he recommends:

  • Get connected to the niche
  • Get connected with media sites in your niche
  • Be willing to share info for free
  • Go seek them out if they dont ask you. Tell them you will do it for them.
  • If they are game, start producing the content
  • Work on the titles of your articles

    You know I really admire the sharing nature of the blogging industry as demonstrated here with Leslie and Phil and others like Yaro and Gideon. As for the info…Perfect Timing!!! My blog is still under construction and for a moment today I thought “awww man. Who really wants to read my blog when others out there are in my niche already.” But Phil put things back into perspective by sharing his similar early experience building, checking out whats already out there in his niche and finding ways to be different. I’m back at work on my blog content. Thanks Phil & Leslie!
