Sending Concise Link Exchange Request Emails That Generate a Favorable Response
Generic, boilerplate link-exchange-request emails are nowhere near as effective as personalized ones. The better the quality of the site you'd like to link with, the less likely a generic link request is to elicit a favorable response.
Think about it. Would you rather be addressed as "Hey, you" or by your name? Webmasters of great sites receive many more link requests than they can reasonably accept. Why should they take one that comes as a form letter?
For everything you need to know about fast-and-easy creation of effective personalized link-request emails, take a look at: Get Personal and Improve Your Link Exchange Request Mailer.
Once your link request has been accepted, netiquette requires that you publish the other site's link first, which can be done with just a few mouse clicks using LinksManager's QuickAdd utility. To speed up the entire process of adding, checking and deleting links, be sure to try LinksManager's Link Exchange Toolbar.
