It really works what Planet13 described above:
1) Look at the sites that are linking to your competitors, and determine what type of content they tend to link to.
Did this yesterday and found 7 quality sites. Asked for link via email and had a decent read of their content before I asked.
[2) Write UNIQUE content that you think would be of interest to them, AND of interest to your visitors.
I already had the content in place for ages, just had to aks
3) Tell those sites about your content, and ask them if they would link to you
write a good email. One you also would like to get. Read any submission guidelines they might have and refer to content on their site.
Got a link from a PR5 site and a link from a very topic related selfhelp site (PR6) by this morning. Although the PR on the homepage is quite high, the inner pages don't have that much rank. Anyway, what matters for me is that the pages are around the same topic as my site is.
