Fat Stacks quote from Breaking Bad by Jesse Pinkman

“Hurry up and link to me cause I already told my client they got a link…”

Guest blogger wants link fast because lied to client - meme


Dear sir,

I surely love your web blog

I’ve been a long-time reader and really love your article titled ‘101 reasons why people who do outreach are the most annoying people on the planet.’

I still can’t believe how good of an article it is. I was going to share it, but then I thought to myself maybe there’s something in it for me before I do such a generous thing.

I’m an expert and very good writer on any topic you want me to be.

I’ve been published on www.top50weightlosspills[dot]com not once, but twice.

Today I have something very special for you.

My sister put together an infographic that explains the sociopathic psychological make up of people who send outreach emails over and over and over. I think your readers will love it.

I need links really bad for my web blog so I want you to link to my web blog.

Because I like your web blog so much, I’ll even let you use the attached infographic on your web blog. Don’t forget to link to my website with a DOFOLLOW link. It must be dofollow. Don’t forget.

Did I mention I really need links?

So I get emails like this about once per hour, 24/7.

How about you?

I bet you do. Thanks to outreach software that never sleeps these pour in constantly.

If you do outreach, don’t be offended about the above (or below). I’ve done my share of it too.

I used to ignore these emails, until I had a really good idea on how to actually benefit from publishing infographics.

Assuming the infographic is good, I reply to requests to publish infographics with the following:

Hi Billy Outreach,

I’m so glad you like my weblog. I’m particularly proud of my article ‘101 reasons why people who do outreach are the most annoying people on the planet.’

I really appreciate you offering to let me use your infographic on my web blog. I agree with you that my readers will like it.

Here’s the thing. I like it, but my method of publishing infographics is unique. I like to turn them into really good pieces of content with additional text.

Would you give me permission to chop up the infographic and add my own text in between the chopped up pieces?

I will give you a DOFOLLOW link as attribution.

Thanks again. I look forward to hearing from you.



To date, I’m batting 100%. Not one person asking me to publish their infographic refused my request to chop it up and add content in between the pieces.

They usually reply within 30 seconds with something like:

Hi Jon,

What a good idea. You are such a smart man.

Yes, you can chop, add, redact, remove, change and do anything you want with it as long as you include a DOFOLLOW link to my web blog.

Also, hurry up because I already told my client that they got a link.

Please email me when it’s published.

Don’t forget the DOFOLLOW link.

I’m laughing as I write this because I’m not kidding. I’ve had more than one person ask me to hurry up and build their link because they already reported the successful link to their client.

I could be a jerk and decide not to publish it, but that’s just cruel. I’m a softy. I usually do hurry up and get them their link so they look like a rockstar to their client.

You probably by now get the gist of the point of this email.

If not, let me explain.

Infographics are a wonderful thing to publish, but not as-is. I should say “good infographics”. Not some piece of junk some dude created with his mobile phone Instagram photo editor.

The graphics and information can be chopped up and expanded on so that you end up with a great article.

I’ve done this more times than I can count. It’s very easy and fast to do.

The graphics get shared. Because they’re all chopped up and look professional, other sites link to me. In fact, other sites rip off the chopped up versions and give me a source link. A very good result.

TIP: Be sure to target different keywords than the post where the original infographic is published. You don’t want to go toe-to-toe in the SERPs given you’re linking to them.

Brainstorm some clever related keyword that makes sense.


Chop it up and slam it in an existing article where it makes sense to do so.

  1. Jon,

    Thank you for brightening up my Saturday morning with your latest email. I laughed all the way to the end of the article and think your P.S. is a perfect fit. It looks like you need to finish putting up the rest of the article on the website.

    Sorry, don’t have an infographic for you and no special requests……well, maybe another article that makes me laugh like this one.


    • Haha, glad you liked the email and post. It’s amazing some of the stuff I receive via contact forms. I try to keep a decent sense of humor about all this stuff. It’s not surgery afterall.
