Internet Marketing – Lesson 20

Social Media is a great way to get your message out, be it about your latest post or newest product. But as a means to an end it is pretty marginal.

I don’t think that it is any secret to anyone that pursues an income online that networking has potential benefits. However, when marketing yourself you have to choose carefully how to socially network yourself, as time is money and networking takes time.

For the Blogger, the more the merrier …… if you have the time, and that is something that you like to do instead of watching Seinfeld on T.V.

For the Internet Marketer, you have to keep your social interactions and networking …… how shall I say …… “working”.

You should not expand past Facebook, Twitter, and Google +, for your social networking and for social interactions, you need to stick with the forums of your choosing. A well placed “Check This Out” can do wonders for a product launch on the proper forums at the right times. I’ll go into forums for the Internet Marketer later on in these lessons. For now, you should be signing-up for as many forums like “Warrior Forum” as you can.

With Forums you don’t need to be interactive on a daily basis to achieve the desired effect, as you have to do with say …… Twitter. Also keep this in mind; Twitter is pitching to everyone Online. Forums, if chosen carefully will or should, pitch to your market directly. Much like a “WSO”.

Facebook, Twitter, and Google +, are for brand building. Forums are for direct response marketing.

When you go with a formal launch, just go with the forums. This not only saves time, but maximizes efforts as well.

Remember this; that socializing is suppose to build goodwill with your market. Don’t jeopardize that by being stupid Online, by getting into some thing political or otherwise, that might hurt your efforts to market yourself successfully. This is not personal, this is business!

    Jeff I have a question concerning the use of Google web tools with your sites. I have been reading both pro and con on whether Google web tools can be a help or could cause major loss of rankings depending on what Google thinks about your methods. Any opinion on the issue?

      Hi Delmar,
      Thanks for coming by today!

      You know I actually had to go check-out the Google Web Tools page as I really don’t use them that much, here’s why ……

      What I’m looking for is a good ranking for whatever it is that I’m doing at the time. To accomplish this I focus on “best practices” with my webpage designs and then plug-in “Google Analytics”. If I can rank highly for my keywords, I’m good to go. I follow that with an “Adwords” campaign and move on.

      I don’t go socialize my site at Twitter and then wonder if Google is going to award me points for being “real-time” with my information. Worse yet, trying to find a tool that Google has to track that sort of thing.

      Google does have some good tools. They have some good split-testing tools which will save you time and money. However, that’s specific and not an everyday type of thing.

      Google has some useless tools also. “Google Docs” …… please!

      Experience will provide you with a good sense of need when it comes to Googles Tool Box.
