There’s a trend right now to find “influencers” to help promote content, the idea is to figure out who in your industry has large followings on social media and get him or her to retweet/push your content so it is exposed to a wide audience and picks up new links.

So how can you snag an influencer so s/he notices you and (hopefully) becomes more receptive to your outreach? Flattery may be an option:
Nice way to get yourself noticed. Now ask me again to help promote your article! 🙂
