blogger outreach with Kristin Matthews

In today’s podcast, I interview Kristen Matthews, marketing manager at GroupHigh. Kristen is an outreach expert, and in this interview we talk about blogger outreach. Blogger outreach has fast become a popular way for brands to increase awareness for their products and stimulate word of mouth, mentions on social media, inbound links, and other good stuff.

To promote GroupHigh Kristen does a lot of blogger outreach. Kristen also does case studies for different case study articles and ebooks. And she works with GroupHigh’s top brand clients to give them advice and setup blogger outreach campaigns.

Why is blogger outreach valuable?  Because people trust them!

  • 81% of the US online population trusts info and advice they get from bloggers – that is almost everybody!
  • 61% of the online population has made a purchase decision based on recommendation from a blogger.
