I am sure that all of us, at one point or another have heard about Social Networking, but perhaps you just are not 100% positive of what it means or how to use it to your advantage.
In the context of promoting your affiliate program, social networking is the grouping of like minded individuals who share and discuss a common subject. The internet is filled with, literally, millions of people who are interested in meeting others who share this common interest in order to build friendships and social or business relationships.
The best place to do this online is at Social Networking websites which for the most part use article postings and forum discussions. A key point to remember here is that there are very strict rules of etiquette and you can be banned from the website for violating them. In order to avoid violating these rules you should keep your social networking limited to article posting and if you decide to get involved in a forum never ever market anything; just merely post a link back to your blog underneath your signature in the forum.
So let us take a moment to look at article postings first and then forum posting and how we use your blog to your advantage.
Article positing is just what it says. It is the process where by you find relevant websites where you can post your articles about how to invest in real estate. When you post your articles you want to make sure that the information you provide is good and viable information; not sales copy! Posting sales copy will get you banned and this is not a good thing.
One of the best websites where you can start posting articles is www.ehow.com. This website is free and has great traffic and more importantly ranks highly with search engine spiders. This is important to you because having websites with high rankings linking back to your blog provides you with high rankings by the same search engine. This works to your advantage by increasing your ranking on the search engine results page. The higher the ranking the more traffic you are likely to get. The more traffic you get the more programs you can sell. It is a simple matter of the law of averages.
At the time of the writing of this newsletter there were only 63 articles, on EHOW, on how to find real estate investors. So first things first; you are going to want to create an account and make sure you create a great profile about yourself. You should include a picture and as much detail as you can. The one key factor here is to make sure that you include the fact that you have a Blog and you invite people to visit your blog and include the hyperlink in your text!
Next, write an article. Use the information in the e-book to give you some ideas. Make sure to visit EHOW first and read some of the articles already posted to get an idea of how and what you should write. Once you have written your article EHOW provides you an opportunity to list the resources that you used to create the article. In this section you will list your affiliate link, a link to the free e-book and of course the link back to your blog! Simple and easy and fun! By the way, did I happen to mention that you can actually get paid by EHOW for some of the articles that you write? So posting articles will not only help you promote your affiliate program, it will also help you earn a little money on the side. My recommendation is that you post as many articles as you can! Always making sure that you complete the resource section accordingly!
