Make Money by Setting Up Your Social Media Accounts
Social Media is a crucial part of online marketing. The more accounts you have the more you can bring attention to your offering. I would suggest starting with Facebook, Google+, Twitter, YouTube and Linkedin. These are the top 5 social media sites. Each one has their own rules of engagement and they are serious about them. Facebook will not allow you to friend more than 5 people a day without putting a ban on your account. Twitter will not allow you to follow more than a 100 people in a day without suspending your account entirely. Google+ will just stop you from following more than 100 people in a day. They don’t penalize you. G+ to me is the most user friendly once you get to know it. Be creative in using social media to your advantage but respect the function of social media which is to be social. When using social media make sure that you are adding value to the arena. Don’t just put out a constant sales pitch. People will not put up with it and pretty soon you will have no one to send your messages to.
Make Money by Setting up Forum Memberships
Sounds weird huh? Just about every forum has a signature tag. When you post to the forum you will be posting your name and your website url. So have as many forums to participate as you can. Participate is the key word. You have to have intelligent posts so that people will follow your links. The best thing to do is to start a thread so that people will respond to your original post. That is prime real estate. Once you have established your forum memberships you just want to go back and participate from time to time to keep your url out there. Also, you can change your url to accommodate new blog post’s or new sales funnels according to your need. It will always be out there on the internet so it is free advertisement. Make sure that when you are posting to these forums that you don’t put your url in the posts. This is spam and it is considered rude in the internet world. The only time you put a url in a post, is if the url actually contains some form of value to the thread.
Make Money Blog
You can set a blog up through just about everywhere these days. Some are free to start. Some will charge you a fee. I would suggest that you pay for one and use the following to blog for free. They are as follows: www.blogger.com, http://www.livejournal.com, www.wordpress.com . Each of these free blogs are tied to a community that you can become involved in and promote your blog within that community. Blogspot is owned by google so you can tie your g+ account with every post. Also, google will rank you pretty high if your SEO is on point. Blogspot has it’s own community as well. I suggest Host Gator for your paid blog just because they inexpensive, analytics are included in their tools and they are dependable. The free blogs are not owned by you and you are limited with what you can do with the template of the blogs. Also, there is a monetary value that is placed on the blog according to the popularity of the blog. So if you ever wanted to sell the blog you could. Put the same content on every blog and link all the blogs together. Pick one to promote which will be your paid blog but have your sales funnel links on all of them which you will include with the content. See my blogpost for more ideas on blogging after you have read this post.
Invite People Join Your Newsletter
Attached to your blog you will have an option to join your newsletter. Attach some offer that will allow them to gain an advantage by joining. This will be attached to an auto responder through a company called Aweber. You will pay a monthly fee to gain their services but you will be able to build an email list that you can use to market services and updates to your blog. You can automate the entire process through their service. Also, they have templates that you can use to set up that newsletter so they can gain value from their association to your site. This is a very powerful tool. The more they get to know and trust you, the more they will buy from you.
Avoid Paid Advertising at First
Concentrate on putting out good content and establishing your social media infrastructure. It will take you about 6 to 12 months before you see significant traffic to your blog. If you keep following the above steps and try to put out new content in your blog daily, then it will come and it won’t stop. Once the revenue comes in then you will reinvest the revenue into some paid advertisement like Facebook PPC and Solo ads.
