  QUESTION: Links swap with, 01 Sep 2005, New South Wales Australia

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for your emails. I have a much better understanding of what to do now. Below I have attached the letter I plan to email to Joy for your consideration. Let me know if I should make any changes.

Draft Letter to Joy

Dear Joy,

Thank you very much for adding The LEAD Group's website to your directory. We are delighted to be networked with PregnancyClass.Com and will definitely create a link from our website to

We really appreciate the privilege you have offered us to appear at the top of this list of our category. I accepted your invitation and added the category 'Pregnancy and Toxic Risk' at Once "Pregnancy and Toxic Risk" is added, I would be grateful if you could create a link to using the following display text:

Pregnant or planning a pregnancy, Are you at risk from lead? Lead poisoning can harm your unborn child. Click here to find out if you are at risk from lead; why lead is a concern; where you are most likely to be exposed to lead; and how to minimise your lead risk.

We are very happy to be strategic link partners with PregnancyClass.Com. Your website is extremely comprehensive and highly valuable. We are pleased to offer it to our readership and are in the process of creating a link to which you can view very soon at

Thanks again for contacting us Joy. We look forward to a great resource-sharing relationship in the future!

ANSWER: 01 Sep 2005

Dear Jasmin,
thanks for your email. Just a couple of things: I don't need you to actually go to our website and use our email form whenever you email us. My request was that you create an email in your own email service by pasting in the following template {I've modified it slightly by adding Job Title}:

I've searched Joy's website and cannot find the one essential piece of data we need the suburb or postcode and country. Thus I have added half a sentence asking Joy for this. The only comment I would have about the above draft letter is that it could be a bit shorter in this case because you clearly don't need to convince Joy about putting on our link - she suggested it. (Though of course it doesn't hurt to practice this for use on less receptive webmasters). I'm sure you would have done it with the final email but just in case, please remember that whenever you are offering a link in return (a links swap) then put webmaster in the Cc: field before sending your email to the webmaster.
I hope that's clearer.
Elizabeth O'Brien
