A new internet evolution is silently creeping in, but only a few people recognize this. How do you use social media sites and profit with less effort?
The future of internet marketing is bright, especially for those who are willing and qualified to take rapid steps. I often hear people complain that the competition is becoming fierce these days, if you want my honest opinion on this, I think you’re right. Doing business online like we always do is the surest path to failure. On the other hand, you don’t have to rely on what’s been in vogue before you can break even and profit online, you need to start thinking outside the box.
The time has come whereby you need to think like a professional, even though you are still a newbie.
This might sound incredible but that is the reality. Social media is a stealth weapon that underground marketers are using attract the right people. Never for once did I consider what I was missing until a colleague of mine in this internet marketing craze sent me an email.
His name is Akin Alabi, not so popular but he makes six figures from the comfort of his home from affiliate marketing and copy writing. But I’m not here to talk about him, I want to show some juicy grounds on how you can profit tremendously starting today.
(1). The Power of Social Media
Social media networks are commonly called web 2.0 sites. They are user-friendly in the sense that, they allow you to post, edit, upload and share files, documents and multimedia. To the best of my knowledge, majority of the social media networks out there free to join. This has attracted a lot of people from all works of live. If you wish to market your product to a specific group of people, social networks helps you sieve through the multitude and deliver the right audience. Let’s use facebook as an example:
According to 2009 statistics from: social media examiner:
It shows that Facebook enjoyed a big breakthrough in the month of November 2009. It’s not even consumers who are leveraging on this, including marketers.
ComScore also documented her findings on how popular this networking site. It surpassed 100 million U.S visitors in a single month, and was counted among the top sites that have gotten this far (that includes Google and Yahoo).
Did you see that statistics?
It reveals a huge potential in social networking sites. If you have not started taking advantage of this, what’s keeping you?
(2). Getting Traffic From Social Media
With 500,000,000 users who spends an average of 10 minutes on facebook and her counterpart, you could be sure of a slice from this whole share. However, you need to consider the fact that majority of these social users are Adults that views life from different perspective.
When you want to get targeted traffic, what you need is to deliver QUALITY CONTENT and stick with it.
Nothing would build your credibility and goodwill faster than solving problems. Start with writing quality articles that gives value back to others. If you write quality tutorials, or pillar articles, or other kinds of articles that provides tips to your potential readers, you will generate a loyal following.
As you network, get rid of every trace of earning a commission. Concentrate first on helping others before yourself. This is one trap marketers keep falling into. Making money online from affiliate marketing or product launch is not rocket science – you simply need to put the round pegs within the round hole.
(3). Build A Relationship That Lasts
The more connections you make on these social networking sites, the more trust you build for yourself. Honesty and the spirit of solving problems is what you should imbibe in your heart. Both are transparent and could be noticed by the newest social network user. To enhance relationship building, you need to start building a separate mailing list. Your sole intent is to convert your social fans, colleagues and friends into buyers.
All in all, never let social media abilities elude you. You’ve everything to gain by solving problems and adding value to your fans and friends. If this becomes the pivot of your life, targeted traffic, money and goodwill would become your share.
