When I first started doing internet marketing there were very few real ways to do it. The most normal of which was some bbc type postings. These were nothing more then a classified ad put up with the best skill available. It took not much skill or ability so there were some doing it and some that were trying to do it and some that were just plain lost. These were the people that were targeted to learn how to do internet marketing. Doesn’t sound like much has changed in the audience world huh? Well there is a ton of ways to market to those people now. Let me tell you some of the ways that I market. I do Article Marketing (A Lot). This is the process of creating articles and submitting them to different article directories and article sites. Yes there is more to it, but to tell you all of it on this page would create a site in itself. There is a ton of information available on Article marketing simply go to google and type in
“killer expert guide to article marketing” the very top result is an article that I wrote. It is about article marketing and how you can use it to market your website for free.
There are other “Free ways to market your website” and I will tell you what they are.
Social Networking – Social Bookmarking – Social Video Sharing Websites.
I will now tell you the difference between each of these just in case you do not know or have yet to understand the difference between Social Networking, Social Bookmarking, and Social Video Sharing.
Social Networking is a community or group of people who share similar or like interests and activities or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others.
Social Bookmarking is a way that people online can organize, store, search, and manage bookmarks online.These services use meta data.These are somtimes put into a system where they can be private or public. They can also be categorized search engine, tags, chronologically, or just in categories.
Social Video Sharing
Social Video Sharing Sites are pretty much that of social networking sites but with video capabilities. These are ever increasing in popularity and are also just now starting to be indexed correctly. These sites rely heavily on tagging to be found, as most have an onsite search that allows you to search just their site for videos relating to your query (search)
These types of sites are all very useful in helping to market your website(s), and I have been using them for quite some times now. They help in achieving PR via backlinks. They also help to get traffic to your site because after all that is where they all point to somehow, and if they don’t, YOU ARE LOSING POTENTIAL REVENUE.
When these sites are used in conjunction with other sites and marketing methods online the results are impossible to argue with. All of these are really basic and rudimentary things to do. it does take a bit of patience and a very small amount of practice,but on a scale of 1-10 I would say you need a skill level of about 3 to do this.
I have a 15 year old son that has used but a handful of these sites mixed with some other marketing methods that I spun together for him and I am very pleased with his results. He was able to get PR rank 5 in 2 days. He also has a stable monthly income of just over $400. That is extraordinary for a 15 year old. He doesn’t even have to work for that anymore even though he still uses the sites as a passtime hobby part of them are used for marketing his own personal product. No he has not created a product like you are thinking it is simply a video of himself and friends skateboarding around town our small town. Anyways enough about him. I was only saying that to let you know that an 8th grader has used a total of 7 these types of websites to create a small but noteworthy income over the course of a week or so.
There are literally thousands of these types of sites online. So go find yourself some social sites and make a few dollars for your efforts.
and Remember It’s only business they can’t eat you!!
