Socializing Instead Of Promoting Your Link Building Strategy

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

The online world is an environment where socializing is a key element to building ones presence. You may wish to purely build a presence for yourself but most often it’s about building the presence of your blog or site.

Part of the presence building process is to create links to your site. But it’s not just any links that you are looking for. Links need to come from sites that have at least a PageRank of 3 and preferably more. Receiving a link back from other blogs with a high PR will build your blog’s reputation.

One of the best ways to encourage other bloggers to link back to you is by participating in the social environment of the internet. This may be in various forms from one on one conversations to crowd chat.

Connect with people and they will connect back. One way to connect is to comment on other people’s blogs. Be sure to be polite and to voice well thought out opinions. Contribute meaningful content, don’t just make a noise to be noticed. You need the right kind of attention. Besides you may ended up in the spam folder and your comment may never see the light.

Another way to connect is to participate on forums that deal with topics that you write about or are interested in. If you are in the Marketing Niche then one of the best forums is Warrior Forum. Make a name for yourself by commenting and offering good content that forum participants can benefit from. And do this regularly.

Sign up to social networking sites such as Digg, Mixx or StumbleUpon. Participate by supporting articles that you find of interest, vote for them, comment on them and in general show that you are an interested member of this special community.

The new social networking sites are also spaces where you can participate. These would be Facebook, MySpace and Twitter amongst a host of sites that offer a sharing and community environment.

Set up fan pages and provide content that people are interested in.  Comment on the activities and interests of your friends and participate in a respectful manner by listening, sharing and contributing on topics that are of interest to others.

Twitter is the newly popular kid on the block. This is a networking site that allows a maximum of 140 characters per message. Participate by sharing some part of your life, your interests and your opinion. Listen to what others have to say and contribute to their conversation.

Besides the above there are other opportunities to contribute your opinion, share the other person’s experiences and knowledge and to participate in a two way conversation. Some of these are Flickr the photo image sharing site YouTube the premier video sharing site.

Then there are Wikis that you can set up on a topic that you are expert on or share information on other people’s wikis. You can contribute to Wikipedia and provide information to this amazing knowledge site.

The more you participate the more your name will be recognised. Where ever you have the opportunity make sure that your blog’s URL is visible. But do stick with the internet protocol of holding a two way conversation which means that your blog is mentioned but not promoted like an ad in the Super Bowl or even worse it’s the only contribution you make.

Be very careful that you are not considered a spammer by over promoting your blog or site. The online world works the best if your promotion of yourself is low key. People will check your site if you are interesting and contribute to the conversation in a meaningful way.

How To Make The Word “Free” Sell For You In Autopilot

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

The online world has a concept that "free" it is the only way to go online. This makes one wonder,  why would the price tag of $0.00 be so powerful?

Then should you give something for free? If you are new in the IM business then the answer should be a big "Yes". You will need to giveaway something. This may be a reward for people that sign up to your opt-in list or to create an awareness of  your online business and this word "FREE" help you to sell yourself or your product or service that you offer.

Use it to not only build an opt-in list but also to spread your name and reputation. Pick and choose bits of your best stuff that you have written. Add some graphics and convert into a PDF for easy distribution.

A free guide or info book will get people to talk about you, build your credibility and on the whole spread good vibes about you.

Why then the internet love a ‘free’ economy?  The main reason for this is because you as an internet marketer have no credibility yet. You have no history of delivering good products. You are an unknown guy but of course not for long if you continue working hard.

How are people going to know whether the content you produce is worth paying for if you are a totally unknown guy? They don’t. They have no basis against which they can judge you as they have seen nothing at all of yours besides a few articles on a blog or an online presence in social media.

How does the customer judge whether spending their money is the right move? With great difficulty.

Why then you require something to be given away for free? You would if there is other competing material available for free. This is what is happening to the online media. Newspapers are not able to sell subscriptions to their content because there is so much competing information available.

Why pay if there is all of it there for you to tap into at no cost to yourself? Wouldn’t make sense to anybody to pay for something that they can arrange to have delivered to their RSS reader for free.

What about other online marketers? Do they face the same situation? Only if they are a totally unknown people. Then they need to offer their product for free. This is because they need to build credibility. But this does not mean you can not monetize your free product, that is why having some affiliate links can help to earn some money even if you give away some ebook for free.

There are internet marketers who sell their books, courses, online content for a fortune. They sell it at close on a thousand dollars or for some quite substantial subscription per month. How do they manage to do this? Really easily. They have built credibility and have become an authority in their field.

This takes a lot of time and effort to accomplish. Only the internet marketer who believes in fake promises of instant wealth thinks he is able to sell an eBook for tons of  money without establishing his authority first.

You need to build your business. As in the real world, you have to earn your reputation and prove that your products are worth buying. Without this, you might as well give away your products for free. Nobody is going to buy them, even huge brands when they have a new product they give away samples.

So, if the big boys need to do this offline or online then what make you think  a new product can be sold by an unknown guy?

The best way to sell it is to use the word FREE in order to build your reputation. But bear in mind you have to give away something really valuable to be recognized and increase your chances to be able to sell anything for big bucks.

Are you already giving away something for FREE?

To Your Success,
