Just published on Boost Blog Traffic, The Ultimate Guide to Creating an Expert Roundup that Gets 1000s of Social Shares.

Some tips include:
1) How to Pick the Right Topic & Question - Forums, LinkedIn Comments and your own blog audience can be great places to find compelling questions that might go viral.
2) How to Word Your Question so that it is unique - Taking a negative slant on a question or leveraging a time sensitive topic are some ways to stand out.
3) Who to Invite to Participate - Asides from the obvious influencers, adding rising stars & expanding to people outside your niche can greatly increase your reach & level up the content quality.

Featuring quotes from bloggers that successfully broke 1000 social shares on their roundups, including +Kristi Hines , +Ian Cleary , +Ashley Faulkes , +Adam Connell , +Steve Webb , +Andy Crestodina and +Peg Fitzpatrick .

And also some great tips on how to approach busy influencers from frequently interviewed experts including +Rand Fishkin , +Brian Dean , +Mark Traphagen and +Larry Kim .
