Getting people to notice your existence online is only half the battle for internet marketers. It is imperative that you get enough online exposure in order to have a successful online business.
Simply put…your business is dependent upon traffic.
The more traffic and online exposure you get, the more your chances increase for getting leads and ultimately closing deals pharmacy levitra. We are all here to make money to support our lifestyles and the life we desire to have.
It’s real simple…go hard or go home. In other words, do what it takes for your business to survive or go get a regular job with long hours and not enough pay. This biz is for the go getters and the people who want to make a change in their lives and for their families. Anytime you come across tips that will take you further, implement them right away and be consistent.
Here are some ways that you can increase your online exposure by spreading the word about who you are, what you do, what you have going on, and how you can get prospects:
You should be Tweeting every day on Twitter. I would suggest that you set up your Tweets the night before you want them sent out via SocialOomph or Hootsuite. This will save you lots of time and you don’t have to worry about getting on Twitter at all for the day.
Use bitly or su.pr from Stumbleupon to shorten your URLs and to keep track of how many clicks you are getting. Use hashtags (#) so that your Tweets are seen by people who are tweeting about the same things or similar things. If I am tweeting about making money, I might put #makemoney at the end of my tweet. You will also get more followers because people like to follow like-minded individuals.
Utilize sites like Hashtag.org for popular trending hashtags and keywords or What the Trend for current trending topics. You can also go to Twubs.com to find other trending topics and to register your own hashtag.
Facebook is one of my favorite places to be and I spend a lot of time there. It’s a great place to network and meet new people all the time. Make sure you chat with people regularly and target those who have the same interests as you.
Social Media means a lot to online exposure. Join groups to promote your products, services, or affiliations. There are tons of groups and I believe the limit is 300 to join. Let’s say you wanted to target Avon reps. You would go to the search bar and type in Avon and scroll down to where it says “see more results”. On the left hand side you will have options and your choice should be “groups”. All the groups in that category will appear and you should be joining as many as you can. It’s that simple.
Be sure to abide by the rules because some groups will not let you post your links or “spam” as they call it. You can also create a Facebook Fanpage and invite your friends. Consider posting ads to get even more recognition and to drive traffic to your page. Also be sure to comment on different posts/statuses. People will notice you and perhaps converse with you.
The more you do this, the easier it becomes. Video marketing has been known to increase the sales of many businesses. It is valuable because people are able to see who you are and get to know who you are as well. This is one of the best if not the best avenue for exposure. But don’t limit yourself to YouTube because it is the most popular site. Other sites to post your videos include, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and Metacafe just to name a few.
This is definitely a great marketing platform for your business. You can blog, network, and gain credits towards your advertising. It’s free to join and the more you use the site, the better. This is also a great way to get leads. You are provided with your own personal links to refer people to the site.
The point of it all is to advertise, and that is what you need. Share with people what you do and who you are. You can blog about anything pretty much but keep your eyes on your business ventures. People are loving this site and every marketer or business professional should be using it. Join for free here.
Prlog.org and Freepressrelease.com are two popular FREE sites for press releases. More free sites can be found here. Press releases are made to inform people about your business, why they should do business with you opposed to your competitors, and how they can benefit. Make sure you stay within the guidelines of the PR site and you will be fine. There is no need to be technical, just be informative.
Remember that consistency is key. If you apply all of these methods on a regular basis, you will be destined for maximum exposure which means more business and lucrative results. Keep rockin’.
