So what am I telling you? If you want to be a successful affiliate marketer you need to put the forums and articles down for a couple hours a day, and use that time to actually TAKE ACTION! Improve your marketing strategies. One of the first things businesspeople do when they’re hit by recession is to cut back on marketing costs. This is actually a very ineffective strategy, as you need the money to strengthen your marketing campaigns. You just need to do one important thing: choose your marketing strategy.
You can add a URL to your Website or blog in the video and submit it to YouTube to attract traffic. Plus Google loves video and will reward you with high rankings for relevant keyword phrases giving you even more exposure. Obviously those with the time, energy and motivation have the edge. The sad thing about the blogosphere is that those people are often those with something to sell. They will be skilled in putting their blogs forward, while Joe Bloggs languishes in obscurity at the bottom of the rankings, swamped by professional competition.
If you are going to use a microblogging service, try getting as many followers as possible. Interacting with people and responding to comments on a http://www.brightsideofnews.com/2011/07/07/microsoft-teams-up-with-baidu2c-plays-nice-with-chinese-regulations/ microblogging service is much harder when compared to using social networking websites, mostly due to the number of updates that microblogging users get in their feeds. Post updates regularly and always look for new followers. All social media is about relationship building. As soon as you start seeing other twitter users as targets and demographics as opposed to individuals, your efforts are doomed to failure.
Socialoomph: Socialoomph is a free application (there is also a paid service), that allows you to send your welcome DM on autopilot. I don’t know about you, but I am continuously inundated with e-mails everyday saying “such and such is now following you on twitter.” To cut down on the “thanks for following me e-mails,” I use Socialoomph to send it for me. You can also set it to automatically follow any new followers…”easy peasy.” You can also schedule updates from your blog through socialoomph, so your tweets can go out when you are too busy to send them yourself.
