How I Made It In Affiliate Marketing Through Social Media
In my struggle in affilliate marketing,i have failled miserably many times until i came accross a good marketing strategy in one of the Social Bookmarking sites called squidoo.Social bookmarking is at the forefront of the Web 2.0 craze that’s making the web a larger social network that it ever has been.
Social bookmarking sites let users create pages about themselves, build
networks of friends and generally get to know other people.
These sites are wildly popular, especially with people under 25, and several (like myspace.com®) have become some of the most visited sites on the web.I can’t cover everything about social bookmarking here. But I can share traffic generation strategies you can use at one of the biggest social bookmarking sites around, without getting anybody there upset with you.
Remember, these sites are about socializing first, not selling, but one site is a
different… From an Internet marketing perspective, Squidoo™ (you can find it at http://www.Squidoo.com
) is vastly different from some of the other social bookmarking (or social networking) sites.That’s because you can sell blatantly at Squidoo™, without worrying about somebody shutting you down, as is the case at MySpace™ and other sites.Squidoo™ lets you create what’s called a lens, which is essentially an information portal about any topic you want.You can create as many lenses as you want in as many categories as you want.The secret to success is to provide good, helpful information people in your niche really want. Along the way, As much it is no surprise that squidoo can prove very effective in promoting your
product only if you can pull in considerable web traffic. Since Google shows a
marked bias for squidoo web pages, they have a very high ranking on the results generated by the former search engine.
As such, if you have a blog or website with squidoo, you can very easily market them with minimum effort. What you can do is that you can attract traffic and popularize your product with the masses using squidoo and then you can redirect the same mass of enthusiast to external web pages. Squidoo also comes with a couple of additional perks as well. First of all, creating an account with squidoo comes for free; and second squidoo allows you to sell or affiliate products,something other networking sites hardly permit.Squidoo lenses are extremely informative and full of fresh content. So make sure that you do a lot of research before you post your webpage for public viewing.
And once your page is on squidoo lens you can rest assured that it is going to
fetch the top rankings in major search engine results. But for freshly created
lenses a bit o optimization always helps to increase its visibility.
So here are some ways in which a Squidoo lens can help to increase the visibility of your website…
· It is a powerful podium that penetrates newer customer bases, every day.
The secret is that a squidoo lens features so high in search result rankings
that a constant stream of fresh web traffic is never a problem.
· Setting up a squidoo lens doesn’t require any complex knowledge of
quantum physics. It is simple and can be established in some extremely
simple steps. It is user friendly and extremely helpful. It even helps you in
developing your content and making it more engaging. It has features like
RSS feed importer, the U-tube tools, etc, all of which helps in uploading
content from a variety of sources. But for increasing the visibility of your
web page, you might have to spend a bit of time on optimising it.
· The biggest advantage of squidoo is that once it starts generating
considerable web traffic, you can redirect them to external web sites that
you may own with other networking sites; or say your independent blog.
This is what makes squidoo an obvious choice with marketing
· Search engine optimization is another feather in the crown of this efficient
social networking organ. Squidoo is a safe bet when it comes to marketing
your website, both on the internet as well as search engines. A factor that
critically determines the popularity of a website is the ease with which
back links can be created from them to other websites.
Squidoo excels at this. Squidoo allows you to establish back links with any
other websites of your choice with the minimum difficulty. This has the net
result that you can jam the bulk of this traffic to your alternative websites
that might be promoting other goods or services.
