Default Which Marketing Methods Are Working For You?

I use many marketing methods on the internet. I am still fairly new in marketing on the internet and I am always learning new and better ways of marketing. Many of the marketing methods that I have; such as posting to forums; which is the very first method I learned, blogging, social networking sites, submitting my url to the search engines, and many other methods; all work.

What marketing methods are you using to build your business and are you getting any results?

I am just starting out, so the information you provided is good to know. I have done the forums but have yet to finish my squidoo lens. Next on the agenda is blogging!

Using squidoo and blogs are great tools SweetestMiracle, I have 2 squidoo lens and 2 blogs, but you still need to market them so that people will go and checkout your lens or blog. Signature files, are a good way to get your blog and squidoo lens noticed.

If you don't know what a signature file is, it is what you see at the end of most people's posts. You will see mine in blue. You signature files will be seen after you have posted 25 times.

I am in the internet marketing for quite sometimes. I have to admit that, at first, I totally disagreed with the posting to forum methods. I thought it would never work because all of the people who are posting in any forums have the same objective, which is 'leaving their links in their signature' and hope to get traffic from it.

At that time I thought that nobody cared about anybody's comment since they just wanted to leave their links as often as possible. It just like the market that full of sellers. You can't make any sale in the place that full of only sellers.

BUT NOW, I've already known that it works, at least for myself. Posting to forums is one of the free marketing methods which is very effective. It might take sometimes, but it works, guarantee.

Smile I really like the forums!

I have been learning so much from going through these forums. I have been gone for 3 days trying to get a new blog up. I think it turned out rather nice. Not bragging by no means, just very proud of my accomplishment.

Hey work2bfree, I am going to have to set up another lens in a day. Would you be okay if I come and ask questions about some of the modules set ups? The last one was soooooooo stressful and I would really like to get the hang of it.

Let me know your thoughts

I hope you are doing well, take care!

I find that posting in forums like this one is a great way to market, using a sig line.
Not only do you drive traffic to your site, but, I have always ended up meeting great people, I've learned a ton of free information and it's just a nice way to bounce ideas off of other people ...there's no need to reinvent the wheel when we have forums filled with member's who are willing to share what they know through personal experience.

Hello SweetestMiracle. I am sorry that I am just now responding to your email. I have been extremely busy with trying to get my triplex rented. I had a property management company managing my triplex and one of my other properties. They did a botched job and because they did such a poor job, all of my tenants left.

Needless to say, I let the property management company go. It cost me so much money to get the apartments fixed and cleaned up. I am glad to say that 2 of the apartments are now rented. I still have the 2 bedroom to rent.

Sorry to go on about this, but it has been so stressful and a lot of work, but I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I should be able to have more time to spend on the internet. I also have a new person to manage my properties.

To answer your question, yes you may contact me for help. I am not sure all of what I can do. I know when I setup both my lenses, it was pretty straight forward.

Madamx, yes forum are a great way to connect with people and you will also learn a lot from others. The key is, of course, the more you do, the more successful your online marketing.

I find that writing lots of articles (usually 4 or 5 per day) works extremely well in generating traffic to my sites. I also like visiting forums, blogging and Hubpages. I have tried Squidoo lenses a few times, but Hubpages is much quicker for me and shows up much better in the search engines. That is just my opinion, many people think Squidoo works best, it just didn't turn out that way for me.

Articles is by far the easiest way to generate traffic, unless you want to pay for advertising like PPC, etc.
