New Website Created- Opportunity for you

Been quite busy setting up a website, which is going to benefit you and your business. The new site has products for sale and a service where you can advertise or promote your own banners and text link ads. The products are books on specific areas of marketing, which include list building, autoresponders and social networking. Have a look at the store, as this will gain you more knowledge.

The service that we will be providing is promoting your products and to do this all you have to do is donate $1 on the site and email the banner codes/web-address for text ad to marketingblogso@gmail.com. Now, you are probably thinking ‘why have we not set up a Paypal subscription for this’? Well, its hosting service is a free one but we will be investing into our site soon, so that you can gain more benefits in using our services.

Also we have programs, that you may wish to join as a free member, that will help you gain traffic and some that will help to raise cash. We will be adding new content to the site, for which if you want to keep updated, you could subscribe to on the homepage. Thank you for your time.

How does Traffic Swirl work?

Traffic Swirl has a 0.6:1 ratio for free members, but if you manage to surf 50 sites for five days it will increase to 0.8:1 and stay at the ratio (but it will drop if you do not surf 50 sites on the next day). You also can win credit turbo (2 credits instead of 0.8) and surf turbo (4 second timer instead of 8 or 10) which will help you to surf faster and gain more to advertise your site.

On each day, there is a different game that you can play to win prizes and they are:

  • Cash money Monday
  • Treasure Tuesday
  • Pick a paw Wednesday
  • Shell game Thursday
  • Fun day Friday
  • Turbo wins Saturday
  • Secret Agent Sunday

So you will not get bored and there are lots of incentives, even though it is ranked 105 in Traffic exchanges, it is the best on social and active surfers. You can advertise 25 sites, banners and text ads of your choice.

How does FCAT work?

Fast Cash and Traffic is a mailer and a traffic exchange site, which you can win reward points (on the 5 view) and a cash reward (on the 50 view). The amount will change everday as you can win one cent or ten cents, but it is easier to get commissions by promoting the site andsurfing. You can join for free, but you will not be able to access the traffic exchange part, only the mailer sent to your inbox.

For this site you can have a 7 day free trial and pay $3.95 a month for gold account or the owner will give you a deal to pay only one amount to be gold, but it is your choice. In my opinion, if you are not too sure go with the free trial and if you believe this site will suit your needs then you can upgrade at a later date.

Blogging- The way forward

Businesses and individuals create blogs for many reasons as they want the content to reach a specific target audience. Although, trying to produce a successful blog takes time, contribution and effort on the writer but what is it that they are trying to achieve and what is their purpose for getting your attention?

Where to go to create a blog

There are sites that are free to use to create a blog to express your opinions and thoughts to other people and they are blogger, weebly and wordpress. Weebly is a good site as you can create a website and a blog, which is helpful for businesses to promote their products and for individuals to build a website using easy tools. Blogger uses your Google mail account, in order to create a blog, and uses a similar format like wordpress as you can add new posts and videos to your content.

WordPress has two sites, a dot com and a dot org, to create your content but the dot org requires you to buy a hosting service before you can produce articles. If you have created blogs on the .com, you can transfer it to your .org account after you have paid for a hosting service. The two best choices for your hosting service is bluehost and dreamhost, as both of them only cost as little as $3.95 per month.

The ‘Apple Theory’

In 2012, there was a huge demand for smartphones, specifically the Apple iPhone that proved to be highly successful due to the simple yet cutting edge software contained in the device. Moreover it has become relatively fashionable to own an iPhone; many social networks, specifically Instagram and Facebook, have teamed up with Apple to drive sales further. It could be argued that the iPhone’s success is due to the overall image and success of Apple itself, as well as the marketing techniques they have incorporated into the business; Apple consistently advertise the simplistic design of their products to ensure their target audience would appeal to the item, and compare their products to others within the same market to show how successful they are. They literally have been indulged into a subconscious marketing technique in which their customers appeal to them purely for their success and popularity, which in effect, drives their success and popularity further. It could therefore be seen as a vicious circle as Apple could release a new product, and due to their sales and marketing techniques, it could be successful immediately purely from their image. An example of this would be the ‘iPad Mini’, which was released 2nd November 2012, and its success was driven from its predecessor.

Ways to promote your business

Classified Ads- Craigslist

Craigslist is an excellent source to promote your business. Whether you have a small business, working part time, or a thriving business which has become time consuming , Craigslist can help your business to increase in profits and popularity. The two main components that you have to focus on is reaching the target audience and running a marketing campaign which will appeal to this target audience.

Reaching Your Target Audience

Promoting  on Craigslist doesn’t have to be a difficult process. However, it is not necessarily automatically easier than promoting offline either. Promoting your business through Craigslist does have some similarities to the process of promoting your business offline.

Even the most well thought out and innovative marketing campaign will fail if it is not reaching the intended audience. You will have to categorize your advertisements correctly to ensure their intended audience will receive the intended message. The majority of posts on Craigslist are available free of charge, but others will cost a bit, therefore small business owners can take advantage of the free posting to reach your target audience in a number of different locations.

Besides being free for most postings, Craigslist offers additional benefits. The most significant benefit is a large audience. Craigslist receives over 4 billion page views per month. With such a large audience it makes it possible for those who post on Craigslist to reach a large audience. However, as previously mentioned, care should be taken when placing the post to categorize the advertisement correctly to ensure the advertisement is reaching your target audience.

Running your campaign

Running your campaign is not very different from marketing effectively in other forms of print media. You write down a specific that your audience needs to do like visit your website and make a purchase, request additional information about your products or services or perform some other desired action such as visit a traditional store or your place of business.

The other component to marketing effectively, as previously mentioned, is placing the advertisement in the correct section of Craigslist. Categorizing the advertisement correctly is important but it is also important to place the advertisement in the right location. Products and services which are only offered in a limited area such as a particular city or county should be advertised in these exact locations. However, those who offer products via a website might consider placing their advertisement in all of the location to which they are willing to ship their products.

Banners

Banners is another way to promote your business, as there are lots of sites that you can go on to create them, for example AdKreator. Creating the banner is easy on the site as they provide you with templates, that you can choose, and you can change them to suit your own business.

However, in my opinion, even though this method to promote is useful, there is a high chance that not many people will click on them. Your target audience may hate the color of your banners or they may not be interested, this is a risk that you will have to take but there are other ways to get the attention of your target audience and that is squeeze pages or splash pages.

Here is an example of a banner that was created on Adkreator:

36500_20130130144407

This is a basic banner that was created to use for ‘Shorty’s Amazon store’, but you can do anything you want like choose your own shapes,color schemes or background.
