In a recap of the last three articles, I discussed Residual Income & Solving Cash Flow Problems, the importance of Lead Generation & Listbuilding, and Affiliate Marketing. This fourth article is about Social Networking, Web Marketing 2.0 & Viral Marketing
I’ll start with viral marketing. What is viral marketing? It is marketing that spreads like a virus. Before the Internet, viral marketing was Word of Mouth Advertising. Today viral marketing uses the internet, and it’s a whole new world.
Some examples of good viral marketing are:
The Blendtec’s “Will it Blend?” video series. If you haven’t seen them yet, check them out on Youtube. They show scientists testing if various household items to find out if it’ll blend in their super-powerful blender. Blendtec has successfully leveraged the popularity of Youtube and other video sharing sites.
Or there’s “One Red Paperclip” where the author of a blog started with a single red paperclip and traded his way up to a house, documenting his steps along the way.
Viral marketing works hand in hand with online social networking media, also called web marketing 2.0. These social networking sites are online communities of people who share interests and/or activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. This includes social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook, Bebo, Twitter and YouTube.
As a network marketer, you understand the importance of networking and making connections. That is what our business is built on. And online we use these social networking sites to do this.
Social Networking online is about meeting and networking with other professionals and entrepreneurs, and sharing info, tips, strategies and opportunities. By using these websites and introducing yourself to the individuals in these communities you are meeting exactly the type of people that are interested in what we do and the type of people you want to work with.
This is your target market.
Online social networking is an important way to meet people and get leads and visitors to your website.
