Social Media Connecting – how to maximize your reach

by Dave Cottrell

Social media connecting is a way to maximize your reach, if you do it correctly.

If you use social media connecting to blast out blatant advertising, you’re going to have a big problem, quickly. Either you will get blocked for spam, unfriended everywhere, or simply ignored. In any of those cases, you have just blown past rock bottom and dug yourself into a deep hole.

Social media connecting is the art of connecting together the social sites you belong to, so that when you send a message to one, it gets sent to one or more of the others at the same time.

How to get the most of the Adlandpro Blogging community

Adlandpro Community

Adlandpro Community

As many of you know Adlandpro has given birth to a new service on its site and it is called the Adlandpro Blogging community.

A big h/t needs to go to Jim Allen  a highly respected member of Adlandpro for suggesting the idea of having this service added to the other benefits ( and there are too many to mention here)  of this social and business network and kudos (of course has to go to Bogdan Fiedur the CEO of Adlandpro) for making Jim’s wish a reality.

While exploring the Adlandpro blogging community service, I had to ask myself the question How can I make this service work for me?  The simple truth is many people just don’t believe is these kinds of services anymore mostly because of the recent Panda updates where many similar style services lost ranking and in a few cases went out of business as a result of losing mammoth traffic. Of course there is always the issue of duplication or spam style posts on a lot of these kinds of communities or directories and then there is the big question for many people -time!

Classified Ads – Building Traffic Part 4

Buying triggers

Buying triggers

Free online classified ads are one great way of getting visibility. Online classified sites are ad directories where the content of the ad is provided by the advertiser. By visiting free classified sites, you can submit your free ads and check out other ads of your competitors as well.

The great thing about online advertising is it is multidimensional. You reach people from all walks of life. In addition, it is free and if you find that it isn’t working out, you can just drop it at no cost.
How do classified ads work?

You might have already experienced that you can place ads free or paid and have no response at all. This is nothing unusual or new. Newbie marketers quite often have no basic understanding how advertising works and they don’t realize that with small classified ads, you only have a very short time to catch the attention of the surfer so you have to make those moments count.

Classified Advertising Tips

Classified advertising tips for affiliates – are you doing it right?

 by Dave Cottrell

Classified advertising has been around for a long time.  Most historians of classified advertising date the birth of printed ads to somewhere in the 1600s, when ads for lost or found items were nailed on posts and walls.  The first classified ads in North America were posted in The Boston News Letter,  in 1704.  The publication charged from 12 pence to 5 shillings to advertise everything from houses to buttons.   The concept did so well that it rapidly spread around the world.

So common is classified advertising, today, that many affiliates and others trying to sell online miss  its importance.  By ignoring classified ads as a way of gaining exposure for their goods  or services, they are missing a very inexpensive and effective way of advertising.  In fact, many online classified ad sites, like Adlandpro offer free classified ads as their basic service.

Free classified advertising on the internet offers exceptionally good exposure.   Whereas in times past, most people were limited to local advertising only, and had to pay for it.  Now, with online classified advertising, you can advertise locally, nationally and even internationally with ease.

Social Influence – Do You Have Any?

Social influence

Social influence

The fact is when you influence a person you will have an effect on their opinions, their attitudes and even their behaviors.
While many people will teach you about marketing metrics in terms of such things as CAC( customer acquisition costs). CPL ( cost per lead) or even CTR (click through rate) when it comes to social influence – ROI ( Return on Influence) as well as ROE (return on engagement  the waters sure can get very muddy and many people just don’t get it! What is worse they don’t even understand why they need to do this.
Before going any further you need to answer a question. What kind of social media user are you?
If you are the person who is only interested in how many people are in your circles, the huge twitter followers or Facebook fans then I can say with all honesty that  understanding influence and engagement is not for you!

Understanding social influence means how to measure the levels of interaction ( talking and sharing with people ” engagement”  and the reach or influence those interactions have on others.

Free Online Classified Advertising|The AIDA Formula

Free Online Classified Advertising|The AIDA Formula

What do you think of when you hear the words “Free Online Classified Advertising”?

Does it send a thrill up your back or do you get the chills thinking about creating a free online classified ad?

While many people especially those who are used to the soft sell of social media say that free online classified advertising does not work, the fact is they do and they work very well IF you understand what you are doing.

While we use social media for many reasons such as entertainment, inspiration or education classified advertising is not for pleasure. People read free classifieds because they have an interest in something in particular and people have a preconceived idea of what they are looking for – in other words they have a set goal or criteria in mind.
